Questions You Should be Asking the World Around You

Trump Cuts Program Training Daesh in Syria. DC Comics Retaliates

Ironically, the new DC comics character is named Isis. Yeah, this is going to be a stain that DC will never be able to remove.

 

DC Comics superhero Isis will be joining DC’s Legends of Tomorrow in its upcoming third season under her real name of Zari Adrianna Tomaz (played by Tala Ashe), and the fact that the character is a practicing Muslim is a choice show producer Marc Guggenheim said was made specifically in response to the election of U.S. President Donald Trump.

“You might have heard there was this election,” said Guggenheim during this week’s Television Critics Association press tour in Beverly Hills (as quoted by Variety). “Not to get political, but something that we all gravitated toward in the writers room was making this character Muslim.”

“Representation is a really powerful thing,” added Ashe. “When I was growing up watching television, I didn’t see anyone who looked like me. When I think of the kid version of myself, I think it broadens your perspective. What I think is so lovely about this show is that the Legends are this tapestry that represent America today.”

According to Variety, Guggenheim said that DC’s Legends of Tomorrow doesn’t look to define a character by their race, religion, or sexual orientation but did so in this case following the election, in part due to the experiences of a family member who is Muslim.

“She was talking about how difficult it is to be a Muslim-American in the current political climate,” said Guggenheim. “Having a character who’s a computer hacker and is from the future but also happens to be Muslim, it’s a nice, important aspect of her character.”

Guggenheim said that the usage of DC Comics’ Isis was also done add more women to the cast.

“There weren’t enough women quite frankly,” he said. “It’s something we were looking to address.”

DC’s Legends of Tomorrow is scheduled to return for its third season October 10 on the CW.
