Whoever approved of this costume for their kid based on the new take on the role did their child a disservice. I guess what Slott is saying is that, if the child allegedly wanted to wear the outfit of an avowed communist character, it'd be okay too? Yep, I guess that's what he's saying.
A Pakistani hero is one thing. A Muslim "hero" is another. And Slott's trying to justify poor parenting or something in his continued effort to act as apologist for the company's directions. However, I don't see this outfit gaining much traction on the market. I do think Slott is a sad case if he's going to keep up these apologetics and trivialize the serious issues involving the Koran's content.
Sorry, Mr. Slott, but you'll have to do much better than that. Like, say, explain how Islam isn't a bad influence for anybody. Next time you call, I suggest you be ready to say Armenians deserve representation in comics too.
