    7 Totally Black Characters in pop culture

    We’ve covered 7 not Black, but totally Black characters before, but this is in audio form! We have new entries, long rants about a certain pop star, and quiet mumblings as I contemplate why I even mention certain things. This episode has it all! Let me know if there are any characters I missed, and be sure to look out for the next entry in our 7 Characters series.

    Duke Thomas The Signal

    Duke Thomas The Signal

    With the video game Gotham Knights on the horizon (as of this writing/recording) it was fitting to tackle the super-powered Bat-family member Duke Thomas a.k.a “The Signal”. Armed with photo-centric powers, Duke can light up the scene or bathe his enemies in darkness.

    Green Lantern John Stewart

    Green Lantern John Stewart

    Today we delve into the second most famous Green Lantern, John Stewart. Hal Jordan holds the top spot in most comic book enthusiasts’ minds. John Stewart, however, introduced the world of the Green Lanterns to an entire generation of TV-watching comic book nerds. The Justice League Animated Series featured Mr. Stewart prominently as Sector 2814’s Green Lantern. Today we chat about the most famous architect/U.S. Marine turned space cop in history. That’s high praise.

    Black as a Superhero Adjective

    Black as a Superhero Adjective

    Whether you like it or not, using Black as a superhero adjective is a thing in pop culture. Prominent heroes like Black Lightning or Black Mariah, down to lesser-known heroes like Viking The Black, suffer from this legacy stereotype. In some cases, like Black Panther, there is a story element defining the name choice. In many others, it’s an identifier for the hero or villain. Let’s talk about it in today’s episode.
