Non-DC/Marvel Comics: 15 Black Superheroes You Should Know

World Entertainment
  When asked to name black superheroes, you’ll probably refer to the core four: Luke Cage, Storm, Blade and now Ryan Coogler’s reboot of the Black Panther. But the world of superheroes is far more diverse than is reflected by mainstream media. As you may have guessed, a lot of these superheroes are just under the radar and not televised.

The first black superhero, Lothar, an African would-have-been prince, was actually introduced in 1934. It wasn’t said overtly but the implication is that he was a slave to Mandrake. Later, the character was revamped as an eq ...
