You sound like this guy


(Before you guys read this I must warn you that I am not trying to insult any race and cultural)

I'm willing to bet that there are a lot of "black' super heroes. You (Darkess01) haven't done your homework. When I say done your homework. I mean that you haven't done research on finding heroes that are "black". If anything you should be happy that they even have "black" super heroes. For instance, Luke Cage, War Machine, etc. because some cultures don't see their race in comic books.For example, how many Hispanic heroes do you know of? I can only think of one that is Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes) from the DC Universe. I bet that a lot of cultural want to see their race as a super hero at least one. But they don't.

Does race really matter? I'm African American and I don't care if black characters are introduced. I care if GOOD characters are introduced. No matter skin color, if they are unique and cool then I say let them go for it.

Well said. Exactly. You couldn't have said it better.

"Darkness01" you should read this it might bring some sense to your head.

Some cultures don't see their race in comic books.For example, how many Hispanic heroes do you know of? I can only think of one that is Blue Beetle (Jaime Reyes) from the DC Universe. I bet that a lot of cultural want to see their race as a super hero at least one. But they don't.

Actually, there are a number of Hispanic superheroes and heroines. For example,

- Sunspot (New Mutants character from Brazil)

- White Tiger (both the original and the new female one)

- Echo (Daredevil girlfriend who was Ronin for awhile)

- Fire (Justice League, from Brazil)

- Kyle Rayner (Green Lantern, half Mexican)

- El Aguila (Marvel mutant with sword and electricity powers, albeit a bad stereotype)

- Vibe (Justice League Detroit, albeit a bad stereotype)

- Firebird (Avengers girl with fire-based powers)

- Feral (X-Force cat girl)

- Living Lightning (West Coast Avengers)

- Rictor (X-Force)

- Skin (Generation X)

- Angel Salvadore (X-Men, girl with insect wings)

- Victor Mancha (Runaways)

One ethnic group that is definitely under-represented in comics is Indians (not native Americans, but people from India). There are only a handful of characters of Indian origin, such as

- Celsius (Doom Patrol)

- Thunderbird (Neal Shaara)

- Indra (mutant with purple skin and armor)

Considering that India has over a billion people (more than 1/6 of the world population), you'd think that more mutants would be born in India than in the USA. But I guess not.

@Fanboy: Would Spider-Man 2099 count as Hispanic also?

Yep. Forgot about him. Was never into the 2099 characters.
