For those unaware, the Green Lantern has traditionally been depicted as a white guy.
The reasoning from Bruce Timm?
As Kersey notes in the book, Timm told the Atlanta Journal Constitution:
"Create and producer Bruce Timm, a sort of star in the confined world of superhero TV animation, said he chose a black superhero “so it wasn’t just a bunch of white guys saving the universe every day.”
And that quote is the crux of the Kersey's book of essays.
It's an engaging read, with in-depth analysis of Watchmen, the Marvel Comics "Civil War" saga, Frank Miller's "Dark Knight Returns," and a powerful essay at what an actual Captain America - frozen since the 1940s - would think about modern, multicultural America.
If you like comics, this is a must read.
It's about time!!! It just continues to go on so controlled by murdoch and Soros with their Marxist agenda....But truth still prevails.
Or Blade, Storm, Catwoman, or Spawn?
