Martian Manhunter doesn't count for me, sooo... John Stewart.

I voted Amanda Waller. She's such a unique character. In the old Suicide Squad issues she basically read like Nell Carter. Imagine 80's sitcom Gimme A Break, now replace the Kanisky family with a group of C list villains. The Wall always held her own.

@v_scarlotte_rose: Monica's Marvel

I'm stuck between John and Static for guys and Vixen and Amanda Waller for girls, though Waller's not really a "hero"

Why is it that the most popular Black superheroes are popular because of tv shows, and not because of their work in comics? Goes to show how much DC needs to improve in making them interesting. Static in Static Shock was AWESOME! But he simply wasn't the same in the comics. Same goes with John Stewart in JLU, Aqualad in Young Justice, and Cyborg in Teen Titans. Here's my top 5.

1. Static

2. John Stewart

3. Icon

4. Aqualad

5. Cyborg

People forget that static had his own show. Even though he's been a ghost within DC comics, he had 4 full seasons as the lead character in his own tv show, along with having a best friend sidekick. That show was basically DC's Spiderman. And considering it was able to last as long as it did, while more popular black heroes can't even seem to hold their own as a lead within their own comic , should prove that it's significance shouldn't be understated.

Meh. Didn't really like the show....well I did when I was younger,but now I think of it as overrated.....same with JLU

Static Shock AND JLU overrated? Wow. That's a first.

Icon for me...

Martian Manhunter is Green so why is he on the list of Favorite Black Superheroes ?

#32 Edited by novi_homines (1338 posts) - - Show Bio

I may be wrong, but I think going back all the way to the 90s, Static Shock might be the only superhero to have his own show for DC outside of Superman and Batman, that lasted longer than a season. Green Lantern is the only other one, and it got cancelled after one season. Pretty amazing once you think about it. Would expect Wonder Woman, or Flash to be that hero, but would never expect Static's show to be so successful.

I just don't see the appeal to JLU.

It's just so,so....overrated in my opinion.

Steel is My favorite black hero from DC followed by John Stewart

#39 Edited by Yokergeist (12355 posts) - - Show Bio

Last I checked MM was green, not black.

So...does anyone think many superheroes at DC are under-powered compared to their white counterparts? Thoughts?

#43 Posted by MonsterStomp (18135 posts) - - Show Bio

I guess MMH can make himself black.

@pcn24454: yeah haha I realize that but he's a martian, he doesn't count as being black.

I don't want to start anything, but would that mean that since Superman is Kryptonian, he doesn't count as being white/ caucasian?
