The Silver Scorpion

On Free Comic Book Day 2011, the Open Hands Initiative introduced the world to the Silver Scorpion, the first edition of the new comic book series developed by American and Syrian youth disability advocates who participated in the 2010 Youth Ability Summit.

The “Silver Scorpion” is more than a superhero; it represents a new phase of US-Arab and Muslim public diplomacy efforts, and serves as a cross-cultural hero for the world that promotes tolerance, inclusion and equality.
