Created by Kuwaiti-based Teshkeel Media, The 99 are ordinary people who develop special abilities after coming into contact with a mystical glass. They do not have secret identities and include five female superheroes with one, Batina, who is fully veiled.
The characters — created by five writers who have worked either with DC or Marvel — pray or read the Qur’an.”
Ok, time to do some searching on Batina…
UPDATE: Open letter from the creator about why he created The 99.
