Wheelchair Man, a new kind of superhero

I heard this amazing piece today on Public Radio International/The World, about Mo Sayed, a teen from Afghanistan who is inventing a new kind of superhero.  Check this out:

So he set out to make Wheelchair Man, an Afghan-American superhero who, upon making eye contact, shows a would-be criminal the consequences of his actions before he commits them. That’s his power. Throw in a wheelchair that can travel at warp speed with amphibious capabilities, and you’ve got yourself a pretty badass comic book hero. But what makes Wheelchair Man truly unique is that he’s based on a true story — Sayed’s story."
