Daily Show correspondent Aasif Mandvi covered the controversy over Batman’s Muslim sidekick, Nightrunner. Nightrunner’s special power is apparently parkour. In the four and half minute segment, he pokes fun at a comic artist “Bosch Fawstin” who thinks Nightrunner could spell doom for the American way of life. Although Nightrunner explicitly rejects terrorism, Bosch thinks that he might be a sleeper cell that could go jihad at any second. Considering this is all fictional, it’s a pretty funny interview.
