Back in 2001, the Justice League cartoon came out. From the creators of the excellent "Batman: The Animated Series" the JL cartoon featured the introduction of a black male as the Green Lantern character.

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.

A must read for all! People who call this work racist are unaware of the truth and some cannot take the truth. This book is an eye opener for all who read it!

He laments the lack of Will Smith in saving the world superhero-style? Uh... Hancock, anyone?
Or Blade, Storm, Catwoman, or Spawn?
