As seen in hundreds of major media outlets around the world, such as Time , The New York Post , USA Today , Fox News , National Public Radio , and more, experience the origin story of a new disabled superhero, Silver Scorpion . Based on the creative ideas of a group of disabled students from America and Syria, the Silver Scorpion tells the story of an Arabic teenager, Bashir Bari, who loses his legs in a tragic accident triggered by violent gangsters. Consumed with anger and grief, Bashir retreats into a world of isolation, resentful of the pitiful looks and whispers of strangers. When he accidentally witnesses the murder of Tarek, a mysterious local metal smith, Bashir is unwittingly chosen as the new guardian of an ancient power that has remained hidden for centuries. With new abilities allowing him to manipulate the metal around him, Bashir must now decide how to use this gift and balance the line between justice and revenge.
