NEW YORK---This crimefighting superhero doesn’t have secret powers, a magical past or a cape. But he does have a turban. Meet Secret Agent Deep Singh, the Taliban-hating, Elvis-loving, Indian techie nerd hero of the new comic book series “Super Sikh.” Created by a Taliban-hating, Elvis-loving Indian techie, Supreet Singh Manchanda, Deep Singh is intended not only to be the Sikh superhero, but a role model for an ethnic group whose members are still often mistrusted because of their headwear.
