Are you sure Kimura is black?  I'm not that familiar with the character, but I know Kimura is a fairly popular Japanese name.

@Ryonslaught: Incredibly useful list here Ryon but just one question. Isn't Chapel black? Doesn't look like he's on the list... 
This guy just for clarification.

Tech-9 is Puerto Rican if I'm not mistaken. Brick alludes to it after cracking on Wise Son about blacks not being the majority minority anymore in the group.

I think she is bi-racial 
Anyways may have another one for this outstandingly awesome list, Baxter Stockman

Uhh, on second thought I take back what I said about Tech-9. Puerto Ricans are basically a mixture of Europeans, Black Africans and Tainos. So I'm sure there is some black in there.

Awesome list! Lots of characters that I never even paid any mind to.

Damnn. Nice list! I never knew there were this many black superheroes. 

Posted by Djinn

nice list BUT alot of the characters are not black. just b/c their dark skin or might have some black in them doesn't mean they should be labeled black

By far my favorite list me being a brotha myself

Why is Mister Terrific before Black lightning?

Die-Cut's doesn't have a black skin-tone. His main image might give you that impression, but it's badly coloured. If you check out his appearance on the covers of his comic, you'll see that he's much lighter skinned than that trading card suggests. 
Likewise Necromon's not dark-skinned, mainly by dint of not have skin at all. He's skeletal.  
On the adding side however, you might want to consider Howitzer, Harry CraneGiant, his son Judge Giant, and grandson, the next Judge Giant. Plus Louis Mayer, Slim and Hairy, Giant's Harlem Heroes teammates. Sadly Comicvine currently lacks entries on other 2000 AD characters such as Treasure Steel, Lux Roth Chop, Bad Company's Malcolm, DJ Chill, Smiley Sun and Blackhawk, or Super-Soldier's member Dragonfly, who would otherwise be good additions to your list.

Also Goblyn - you'd be forgiven for not realising it, given her mutation, but since she's Pathway's twin sister, she'd be of similar skin tone if you could see it through the fur. Plus, British vigilante and Punisher ally Outlaw, MC2 universe's Ladyhawk, Luke Cage foe Black Mariah, Cloak and Dagger ally Rebecca "Rusty" Nales, Killmonger agents Sombre, Baron Macabre, Wakandan Derek Khanata, Eclipse's Sabre, Polestar, Simon Ashley, and Crackshot, Evelyn Cream from Marvelman, Mage's Joe Phat, Cadillac and Dinosaurs' Mustapha Cairo, the Futurian Terrayne, Owen Parrish of Metallix, Badger's Connie Ammerperson, and Mandrake's ally Lothar.

This is a great list but I don't know why you consider Remy McKenzie to be black since he is the son of Namor and the Invisible Woman whom both are white.  

Posted by Ryonslaught
@postman: in remy's world namor is black ;)
Posted by postman
@Ryonslaught: Oh, I see, thanks for clearing that up for me.

not so sound like a stick in the mud, as another African American myself. A few people on the list might not fall so precisely into this catagory, Gateway is actually an Aboringe, basically he's from Australia. M or Monet isn't actually Black either, shes from Algeria, where the population is deceively not black. I don't know if at some point in time in recent history that wasn't the case, maybe ethnic cleansing took the region, but they are mostly very fair skinned people.

@Selvokaz: Monet has been portrayed since her debut in the 90's, her skin tone up until x-factor was black...thus why she's here.
Gateway is aborigine but as you may be aware they do possess black skintone. Thus why both are here. Read the description it explains all :)
Thanks :)

What about DarcStorm?...He's black.

Posted by kai1309

Too Much Complaing on this page, I like the list.
Posted by EganTheVile1

Seriously Base is not black, his presence on your list is a disservice to it, Base is light skinned Japanese, great list aside him

Posted by Ryonslaught

@EganTheVile1:I'm well aware of where Base should be BUT ht you don' get is the hell it is to edit a list of this size, It's near impossible, Ive attempted removing him multiple time to no avail.

Posted by SuperDoahBoy

Great list! They aren't all heroes in this list, so I still think we need more black super heroes in general.

Posted by doublezeroduck

Isn't M from Monaco?

Posted by EganTheVile1
Posted by madrid_san

I'm sorry man but M and her siblings ARE NOT black. ALgerians are Berber in origin with Arab influence. I repeat SHE IS NOT black. She is dark skinned yes but you might as well Thunderbird black.

Edited by madrid_san

@doublezeroduck: yah she was born in France but her family is Berber NOT black. That goes for all her family. Is there anyway we can correct this database and remove her?

Posted by Vance Astro

I didn't know you can flag lists or what people say on lists but all of this needs to stop.

Posted by bloodvice

this has to be the longest list on comicvine. Holy crap you got some good picks on here, including some of my all time favorites.

Posted by bigmidget

You forgot About Uub From Dragonball Z and Pican from DBZ Technically Piccolo is Black even though he is green (admit it Thats wesly snipes all day) U also Forgot Catwoman she flip flops from good to bad like she flip flops from black to white. And technically The matrix was originally written By a black woman (who sued the creators of the movie) and she said Neo was Black just like most of the characters in the Matrix you forgot samuel jackson in star wars and the smooth playa fly dude from the old star wars and jar jar binks was obviously black. were gonna leave james earl jones out of this. oh and apocalypse from x men even though he isnt a good guy or bad guy. and you forgot cyborg from teen titans. If you want to put anime in the mix on one piece I believe Brook was black before he turned to bones and Ussop.

Wow. I never knew that there is so little bit of black superhero related characters... = )
