“The Pull List: Black History Month”

At Tor.com, Alex Brown shares her top ten favorite Black comic book characters. “For all their talk about diversity and inclusion, comic books still tend to be pretty straight, white, and male (and catered to same). But that doesn’t mean there aren’t a lot of great characters of color that do more than fill the token role. There are a ton of problematic ones (see: Tyroc), but just as many have been retconned into redemption or were lucky enough to start out on the awesome side. Black History Month is the perfect time to devote special attention to some great Black comic book characters, from BAMF humans to magic aliens to superheroes.” (Via Dark Matters)
