Black Superheroes at DC



Black history month is February.

To honor that month I a presenting the follow post.

In this post I will present you with lists of past DC heroes, A list of my Favorite black superheroes and villians, and my thoughts on where DC needs to go.

1. THE LISTS OF BLACK DC HEROES.

To my recollection only two DC Titles have the main charecter who is black: BATWING and GREEN LANTERN CORPS.

Otherwise you only have a few titles, Justice League and Justice League America come to mind, where a black hero is featured.

So with that I am listing the following links that detail the black heroes in the DC Universe.
