MTV Voices to showcase new comic superhero ‘Silver Scorpion’

BANGALORE: The MTV Voices website will showcase a new animated four part web-series featuring a differently-able cross cultural super hero ‘Silver Scorpion’ that has been created through the ‘Open Hands Initiative’, a partner initiative between the two.

Silver Scorpion is the brainchild of a group of 26 American and Syrian youths with disabilities who gathered in Damascus a about a year ago.

Open Hands Initiative co-founder and chairman Jay T Synder says,” “This is not just a comic book; it’s a breakthrough effort in public diplomacy that helps forge lasting bonds and understanding between the youth of the United States and the Middle East. his type of people-to-people diplomacy is as important now as it was a year ago when we brought these creative young people together, and it will be even more important in the years ahead.”

Liquid Comics co-founder & CEO Sharad Devarajan said. “Great superheroes have always been allegories to larger societal issues and the story of our generation is globalization and our ability to overcome regional and cultural differences to find our common humanity. These students and their experience together speak to the very best of that globalization in the years ahead.”

“MTV Voices is all about giving young people a platform to express ideas, aspirations, concerns about the world in a creative manner”, said Viacom International Media Networks VP of Social Responsibility John Jackson. “The Silver Scorpion project and how its super hero was conceived absolutely reflects that core value and is a natural fit for MTV Voices. Through the story of the super hero, the young Americans and Syrians involved with the project have found a way of sharing their values with the world, and MTV Voices is delighted to bring that to our audience, encouraging them to engage with us on the narrative, the ideas and the vision”.

As recognition of the students work, at the 2010 Clinton Global Initiative, former US President Bill Clinton highlighted the Silver Scorpion project, stating that the comic book, “…will help to establish trust and understanding between cultures, to empower young people with disabilities.”

The Silver Scorpion tells the story of an Arab teenager, Bashir Bari, who loses his legs in a tragic accident. The hero envisioned by the students has the power to not only bend metal with his mind, but to transform his world… and ours.
