“The comic book will help to establish trust and understanding between cultures, to empower young people with disabilities.” – President Bill Clinton, at the 2010 Clinton Global Initiative
Based on the creative ideas of a group of disabled students from America and Syria, the Silver Scorpion tells the story of an Arabic teenager, Bashir Bari, who loses his legs in a tragic accident triggered by violent gangsters. Consumed with anger and grief, Bashir retreats into a world of isolation, resentful of the pitiful looks and whispers of strangers. When he accidentally witnesses the murder of Tarek, a mysterious local metal smith, Bashir is unwittingly chosen as the new guardian of an ancient power that has remained hidden for centuries. With new abilities allowing him to manipulate the metal around him, Bashir must now decide how to use this gift to protect the world.
