The ad says comics can provide "the opportunity for youth to learn lessons, develop role models and improve their education."

The Army is likely to face stiff competition, as the comic book medium is already popular among Arabic-speaking young people in the Middle East, whose heroes include "Zein, a.k.a. the Last Pharaoh" and Amgad Darweesh, Zein's alter ego, who is 14,000 years old.

Cairo-based publisher AK Comics sells in Egypt, Saudi Arabia and the Persian Gulf states, and plans further expansion. It says its goal is "to fill the cultural gap created over the years by providing essentially Arab role models -- Arab superheroes to become a source of pride to our young generations."
