For many years, Black superheroes have been dismissed as sidekicks, imitators of established white heroes, or are accused of having no role outside of blaxploitation film contexts. Yet the importance of a Storm, Luke Cage, Black Panther, or Jon Stewart as Green Lantern or Miles Morales as Spiderman cannot be understated. Their entry into comic books also served as entry to the hearts and imaginations of black children, confirming that they too can be superheroes and could one day save the world.

Very important. I used to buy black comic books at the Karibu Book Store in PG Plaza as a kid, just because reading about black superheroes made me feel like I could be that too. I miss that store.

the fact that all those tombstones represents real black boys that were shot for the stupidest most racist shit breaks my heart…
