Welcome to The 99, the world's first Islamic superhero comic, which having taken the Middle East by storm is on its way to becoming an established brand in the USA and Europe. The brainchild of Kuwaiti-born psychologist Naif Al-Mutawa, The 99's title comes from the 99 attributes of Allah and features a diverse - male and female, young and not so young - collection of superheroes battling to do good around the globe. A collaboration between Al-Mutawa and some of leading names in the comic book industry, such as Fabian Nicieza of Power Rangers fame, The 99 is a comic with a fascinating edge.

About Al Jazeera - Witness
Rageh Omaar presents Witness, a half-hour daily documentary series which features short, specially commissioned or acquired films gathered from independent filmmakers.
Each documentary reveals the unknown lives of ordinary people, following their lives, telling their stories and portraying the challenges that confront them. Our witnesses are people in a situation or those who have observed them first hand.
The films cover conflict, belief, the past and the future and as well as bringing new stories to light they showcase the talents of a new breed of multi-skilled, frontline journalist. In the studio, Rageh will further explore the issues raised in the films, with expert guests on the subject matter and the filmmakers themselves.
