What a great month it's been for both DC and Marvel comics and what a great way to embrace Black History month. First DC premiers their latest show 'Black Lightning' this is DC's first black superhero to have his own self titled comic book back in the 70's. The show is being received well by viewers and also features Black Lightning's daughter, Thunder making her one of the first LGBT superheroes portrayed in live action. Marvel's Black Panther premiers and quickly becomes the #1 movie in the world! This character is also Marvel's first black character to hold their own self titled comic. This movie not only embraces African culture but is also empowering to women. I'm so glad to see how positive this show and movie are becoming. The representation of minorities in main stream media is important. Everyone deserves a chance to see themselves being represented on screen not just white people.
Before I get comments about "but you're not even black." I know I'm not black but I'm a Hispanic, LGBTQ with a "disability". I fall in the cracks of a minority here in America and seeing the success of these two underrated superheroes makes me proud no matter what color I am. ✊✊🏻✊🏾✊🏽✊🏿 #blackpanther #blacklightning #dccomics #marvelcomics #wb #marvelstudios #warnerbrosstudios #xmen #batman #blackhistorymonth #lgbt #feminist #weneedmorecontentlikethis
