I'm not entirely sure what's going on with the DCnU. Hopefully Billai Asseiah(Nightrunner) hasn't got completely lost in the shuffle.

However, I was just reading an interview with Paul Cornell about the line up for his new sword and sorcery book Demon Knights, and we finally got a full team line up.
But he did reveal that besides Etrigan, the comic also features Vandal Savage, an immortal who's been around since the days of cavemen.

Cornell has since revealed more line-up for the comic during convention appearances, including: Horsewoman, an archer who can ride horses but cannot walk; Shining Knight, a young sword-carrying hero whose true identity (and gender) is masked behind armor; Madame Xanadu, a mystic with a mysterious background; and Al Jabr, a Medieval playboy inventor

Hello there. I’m here to talk about a famous mythological figure.

They called him Hang Tuah.

It’s really funny, but when I was asked, earlier this year about fictional Muslims, I actually truthfully said that I couldn’t remember any.

Thing is, [personal profile] dhobikikutti started pestering me to talk about Muslim characters, write some Muslim fic, and I honestly couldn’t get myself started, because… well because I was lazy. Still am, actually.

But then I remembered: Hey, isn’t Hang Tuah a Muslim? It’s weird, because I normally associate Hang Tuah with Malay-ness (he’s kind of the quintessential Malay guy, really). And this is funny, because I remember playing him once in an amateur play. I was really bad at it.

So. How does Hang Tuah’s story go?

here's how it went )

Anyway, I thought it was cool, and I wanted to share.
