It would seem that the world's pictureless comic book fans are having a gathering to discuss religion and the media. Since we represent the only one True faith and also present weekly media coverage on the imminent threat posed by the Legion of Doom, we can only assume our invitation got lost in the mail.
Here is a description of the event from their website:
It is a pleasure to invite you to join the media researchers and scholars, representatives from diverse religious traditions, professionals and students involved with the subjects of the conference who will gather in Tehran in November 2008 to explore the complex relationship among religion and media. The purpose of the conference is to share developments in and research on religion and media (with emphasis on Television and Radio).
What's really surprising about us not receiving an invitation is the fact that Iran has always been noted for its consistent religious tolerance and open-minded approach to different views on the subject of culture and religious thought. Perhaps because we use subspace channels to spread our wisdom instead of TV and radio the organizers of this momentous event feel we wouldn't have anything to contribute. Or maybe Tehran is still embarrassed about the Ayatollah Khomeini appointing the Joker to the position of ambassador to the US right after he killed the second Robin, they felt we would automatically decline.
Nevertheless, the voice of Hawkgirl and the Green Lantern will not be heard at this gathering. The only people who stand to lose from this omission are the good, decent people of Sector 2814 who stand firm against Sinestro, Lex Luthor, and everything that is truly evil.
