Black Superheros

Not the most original title, but I have a headache. If you are interested in the intersection of Race and Comic books you might enjoy this article by W. Scott Poole. I think he makes some good points amid some real generalities. He focuses on the short lived ICON imprint over at DC, and the Black Panther.

I think he might have had some interesting things to say about the current Marvel series "Supreme Power" which contains two black characters (a "Flash" and a "Batman" (the series is loosely based on DC Comics Justice League, it also has a "Superman," "Wonderwoman," "Green Lantern," and "Aquaman.").
