DC Comics is adding a new character to its universe, this week. The latest issue of the Green Lantern will feature the superhero as an Arab-American man from Dearborn. The new character was created by Michigan native Geoff Johns – one of the top talents at DC comics. Matthew Jaber Stiffler is a researcher at the Arab American National Museum. He spoke to WDET’s Rob St. Mary about the new comic book character and Arab American representation in the media.
