Trapped in a warzone, Al Stark has an epiphany: “Americans are a superstitious and cowardly lot. I shall become a Muslim”. Al, newly inspired, takes his jihad to New York City, and a showdown with a Freedom Fighter who resembles a certain Caped Crusader…part of THE AVENGEFULS saga, BLEEDING COOL’s Rich Johnston takes us on a raucous ride through politics, fanaticism and the healing power of Hollywood.
