@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?

Well, a black man and a white man are still human, we're only classifying their ethnicity by their color of skin (at least in this particular case), so while Superman is kryptonian, his skin color is still white, for all we know there is no real reason why there couldn't be black kryptonians. So, you could denominate MMH as a black person (being that he oftens disguises himself as a black man)... except... y'know... he's green.

Anywho, Black Lightning all the way, he's insanely underrated.

@strangeman: okay fair enough!

Anyways, I voted Cyborg

CRAP. I voted Steel by accident. Meant to vote for Static... -_-

This would be my list: (no real order)

  • Static
  • John Stewart
  • Cyborg
  • Spetre (Crispus)
  • Firestorm (Jason)

Technically, Superman is Jewish.

Meh, Voted Batwing, mainly cause I like Batman and Ironman. Icon was also considered as well as John Stewart.

MMH is not black, he's green. Or, to be more politically correct... Martian-American! =)

I guess we disagree. I never thought about this before but he brought it to light. Superman truly isn't caucasian, at least I don't think so. Neither is starfire, or Thor. They're aliens. Their skin color is white, just as MMH is green, Arkillo is red, and Kilowog brown. Whenever terms "black" or "white" are used, it is used with an ethnicity in mind. But i've realized that in reality, there shouldn't be this link between color and ethnicity. At least when it comes to alien superheroes.

Wow holy crap, this is the very essence of overthinking minor stuff.

Also, Arkillo is grey not red, and Kilowog is pink not brown. And Starfire is orange.

To be honest, I dislike them all. They are all so very unlikeable. Either they are too boring or too cocky or too sassy and almost all lack any depth as a character.
