One of the The Secret Of The 5 Powers film's big surprises, is the largely unknown comic book that turned Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. into a Superhero. Dr. Sylvia Rhor, Martin Luther King, Jr. scholar from NYU, shares the origins of the powerful "Martin Luther King and The Montgomery Story" Comic Book.

In 1956, Alfred Hassler had an idea -- he wanted to work with Martin Luther King, Jr. to produce a comic book - a comic book to be distributed in the South to young and old, African Americans and white Americans, to tell the story of the struggle for civil rights in Montgomery.

The idea itself was groundbreaking. Rarely does one think of a comic book as an important tool in the struggle for civil rights, but this comic book has been quietly changing the course of history around the world for over 50 years.
