    A DC Comic Called Pakistan's Language "Pakistanian" And Twitter Is Having A Field Day

    A five-second Google search could have prevented this.

    Pakistani comic book enthusiast Khaver Siddiqi just tweeted this photo from DC Comics' recent release Superman/Wonderwoman Annual #2.

    Here's why @Marvel is winning over @DCComics - the latter thinks we speak Pakistanian. h/t @takhalus

    There's only one little GLARING issue with the comic: "Pakistanian" is not a language.

    "The scene's set-up is basically some bad guy attacks villagers," Siddiqi explains.

    Predictably, people are taking the mickey.

    PAKISTANIAN! Fantastic. Someone teach me that too.

    @Disappearer Pakistanian is very difficult to translate.

    I always thought 'Pakistanian' was such a beautiful language #DC #PointsForResearchTeam

    The scene is set in the village of Shimshal, Northern Pakistan.

    DC, please.
