Batman's Muslim Sidekick - Nightrunner

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.
