Top Ten Black Superheroes

    (BPRW) Growing Popularity of Black Superheroes Creates Opportunities for Comic Book Investors

    (Black PR Wire) Marvel Comic’s Black Panther—the first black comic book superhero, born in the 1960s—is poised to make his big screen debut in the much-anticipated movie, Captain America: Civil War. It’s culturally significant, but that’s not all. For comic book collectors, the growing interest in black superheroes opens doors for investors, too.

    “When interest in a character rises, comic book values do, too,” says Vincent Zurzolo, co-owner of Metropolis Collectibles, the world’s largest vintage comic book dealership, and, its online auction site.

    Take The Black Panther’s first appearance in Fantastic Four #52 in 1966. (First appearances are typically the most valuable comics in a series.) In 2012, a 9.8 graded copy of Fantastic Four #52 sold for $19,200. In 2016, a similar copy sold for $83,650—a 435% increase in value.

    Created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, The Black Panther character was born as T’Challa, the prince of Wakanda, a technologically-advanced country. He takes on the hero role when his father, the king, is killed.

    Then there’s Luke Cage, a favorite of actor Nicholas Cage, who adopted his surname. This black superhero, who first appeared in Marvel’s Hero for Hire #1 in 1972, boasts superhuman strength and unbreakable skin. Last year, he was featured on the Netflix series Jessica Jones. This fall, he’ll headline his own series.

    In 2011, a 9.8 graded copy of Hero for Hire #1 sold for $2,766. In 2014, one sold for $6,100. But earlier this year, a similarly graded copy sold for $24,000, a whopping 867% increase in 5 years.

    “The interest is industry wide,” notes Stephen Fishler, co-owner of Metropolis/ComicConnect, pointing out the upcoming reboot of Milestone Comics, a DC imprint created by African-American artists and writers in 1993. The best known are Hardware, Icon and Static.

    Hip hop icon Darryl “DMC” McDaniels of Run DMC, launched his own comic book imprint, Darryl Makes Comics (, in 2014. His graphic novel series, DMC, features McDaniels as a contemporary superhero—complete with trademark Adidas and fedora—confronting evil in 1985 New York City.

    “The Black Panther has been a favorite of many collectors for decades. He has a great back story and cool powers. Once more people learn about him, his vintage comics will become more collectible.”

    Supporting The Adventures of MOXIE Girl A story of personal triumph and discover of Natalie McGriff

    MOXIE Girl
    Mayor of Jacksonville, Alvin Brown and Natalie

    When 7 year old Natalie and her mother Angie wrote the comic book “The Adventures of Moxie Girl” they created a foundation for a social movement that focuses on issues of personal challenge and discovery.

    The Crowd Funding venue One Spark was the setting for what would become a whirlwind of speaking, handshaking, elaborating on who and whom Moxie Girl is; photo-shoots, meeting a Jacksonville Jaguar, meeting Mayor Alvin Brown, talking with supporters and those in the news media. Her mission became a passion for social justice and community activism, Natalie is an icon for local and national change for Black girls and all girls. Exclaiming proudly that #BlackGirlsRock, #?MoxieGirl #?BlackGirlMagic

    The One Spark event is just a stepping stone for the continued adventures of not just “Moxie Girl” who has created a following on Social Media that is growing digitally viral. Angie Nixon the mother of Natalie is already ingrained in the Jacksonville community by her passion for issues of social consciousness and community activism. Raising her daughter Natalie to be a strong independent thinker, self-conscious of her abilities and talents, understand the value of education and proud of her own unique blessed gifts that will elevate her no matter what she endeavors to do. These are the qualities that Black mothers and other mothers of culture need to birth in their girls.

    MOXIE Girl
    Natalie Winning

    Angie is a blueprint for motherhood that tirelessly strives to build, re-build, define and re-define the self-image in her daughter that defies the media execution of Black girls and girls of color. Black girls are intelligent, talented, gifted and possesses a natural self-awareness that is positive and healthy. This can be seen in Natalie who wears this as a badge of honor and encouragement for other girls.

    Like scaling a mountain Angie and Natalie are taking one step at a time with a few leaps and bounds to continue their journey of self-awareness and self-discovery. "The Adventures of Moxie Girl" a comic book based on a little Black girl that hated her kinky hair and after using some magical shampoo, her Afro puffs become her super powers used to save the Jacksonville Public Libraries from being eaten by monsters. She turns her insecurities into super powers that fight evil.

    Stated by Angie about the comic book; “I decided to help Natalie write this book because she was having self-esteem issues regarding her hair and she hated to read. She now realizes how powerful and awesome her hair is (there are the occasional rough days) and that in order for her to write a cool book, she needs to read more books and learn different words.”

    These are concrete examples that show parents the importance of reading, writing, literacy and comprehension. The value of parental guidance and support to create strong readers in their children.

    The first teacher is the parent as shown by Angie from the interaction and continuous engagement in communication that brings exposure to life events, people, community awareness and the respect for education. Parents have the tools to motivate their children to be life-long learners they just have to be willing to implement those tools and stay actively involved. The defining relationship of Angie and Natalie is a praiseworthy collaboration of love, respect and cooperation between a parent and child.

    One Spark is creating transformative opportunities for hundreds that have dreams and ideas. This Crowd Funding opportunity is not just for adults; children, teens, and young adults that have a vision are able to participate.

    Natalie’s Creator #21800, use of Social Media platforms and the explosive personality that exudes confidence and a determination to excel helped to lift Natalie to first place in the Education division of One Spark.

    “The Adventures of Moxie Girl” had the biggest increase in percentage of votes in the education field for One Spark. It helped to have a network of diversity that not only were well-wishers, they voted and shared their excitement for and of Natalie online by voting and praying.

    As the news spread and the creators were notified of their positions the paradigm change resulted in Natalie and Angie winning. Stating how she felt: “I am literally holding back tears because I am so excited. There were so many times that my baby came home or was watching TV and voiced her disdain about her hair and how ugly she thought it was. The fact that we wrote a book about a little black girl who uses her kinky hair to save the public libraries and people of ALL different ethnic groups embraced it... I have no words. Thank you Jacksonville. My city is indeed progressing and we are taking it to the next level!”

    Congratulations to One Sparks newest and youngest winner and Jacksonville’s Moxie Girl!!! Look out for her books and public appearances.

    OZY Casts the Next Great Black Superheroes

    Actor Chadwick Boseman, who made his name playing baseball great Jackie Robinson in the 2013 film 42, won’t answer the question: Will he be donning the Vibranium-laced boots of the Black Panther, Marvel’s crime-fighting, superior-tech-backed African prince?

    “I can’t really talk about that right now,” Boseman tells OZY with a telling laugh.

    That’s right. A black superhero who shares the name of one of the most controversial political parties in American history. (The hero born T’Challa made his July 1966 debut in The Fantastic Four, months before Huey P. Newton and the Black Panther Party shook up the American consciousness). Indeed, it wasn’t his moniker that had comic book followers talking. It was the fact that Marvel’s first black superhero literally went toe-to-toe against future box-office behemoths The Avengers — he later joined the team — and ruled over a futuristic African nation that had never been conquered. The Black Panther would be controversial — as controversial as the cartoon version commissioned for BET.

    But if Boseman has indeed jumped on for the coveted role of the Black Panther, it will continue a recent rising tide of black superheroes in Hollywood.

    There was the news leaked that in the sequel to Man of Steel, Bruce Wayne and Clark Kent would be joined by Justice League member Cyborg. The casting of Ray Fisher as the former Teen Titan and the controversial signing of Michael B. Jordan as Johnny Storm in 2015’s Fantastic Four reboot (in the comics, Storm – aka the Human Torch — is white … cue the fanboy freakout) comes on the heels of the debut of the Falcon (Anthony Mackie) in the mammoth blockbuster Captain America: The Winter Soldier, which to-date has taken in nearly $700 million globally. And Halle Berry returned as the weather-changing mutant Storm in the recently released X-Men: Days of Future Past. But here are OZY’s picks for who the next great black superheroes should be:

    Sooner or later, actor Chris Evans will have to hang up Captain America’s shield. When that happens, Marvel should think seriously about finding an exciting replacement. And they could turn to one underused character: The Patriot, the grandson of African-American World War II supersoldier Isaiah Bradley, who just so happens to be the leader of the Young Avengers. In the comic book, he receives a blood transfusion from Cap himself after taking a bullet, thus receiving Steve Rogers’ enhanced abilities of the First Avenger. This one is a no-brainer. And if we had our way, 22-year-old Attack the Block and 24 actor John Boyega (the British newcomer has already mastered a Yankee accent!) would be our first choice to play young Bradley.

    Misty Knight
    She’s a brilliant, gorgeous law-enforcement officer turned superhero, and has an enhanced bionic arm. Carrying on the name of Luke Cage’s Heroes for Hire outfit, the firearm-toting Knight would pop and bring some much-needed gender diversity to Hollywood’s superpowered obsessions.

    Green Lantern
    According to reports, the Zack Snyder dream vehicle will introduce the Justice League, with Wonder Woman and the aforementioned Cyborg making appearances. But DC Comics should reintroduce the Green Lantern, the ring-powered galactic protector who headlined the messy, uninspired self-titled 2011 film. Since the original Green Lantern, Hal Jordan, struck out, let the more thoroughly serious African-American version in John Stewart get some screen time.

    Brother Voodoo
    Don’t let the cringeworthy name fool you. Brother Voodoo — aka Jericho Drumm — is a respected character in the Marvel Universe. So respected, in fact, that the mystical force was chosen to replace supernatural big dog Doctor Strange as the universal Sorcerer Supreme for a brief time (he earned the Eye of Agamotto during the Dark Reign series). Translated from nerdspeak: The dude is a serious problem.

    What better way to honor late African-American comic book visionary Dwayne McDuffie than to bring one of his most intriguing creations to the theaters? Introduced in 1993 by the DC-distributed Milestone Comics, the powerful Icon is really an alien who crash-lands on Earth, taking on the likeness of the first person he comes into contact with — a slave. Icon once punched Superman out of the Justice League’s Watchtower. Enough said.

    But until these imaginings become a reality, look ahead to one of the most anticipated films of the summer, X-Men: Days of Future Past.

    Keith “Murph” Murphy spars with brazen hip-hop moguls, Hollywood rebels, revered thespians, redemption-seeking pugilists and more. His work has appeared in VIBE, The New York Post, Billboard Magazine, Essence, and The Root. He’s a frequent commentator on CNN, Fox News, VH1 and A&E Biography.

    From Warner Bros. Pictures and Legendary Pictures comes “Man of Steel,” starring Henry Cavill (“Immortals,” TV’s “The Tudors”) in the role of Clark Kent/Superman, under the direction of Zack Snyder (“300,” “Watchmen”).


    A young boy learns that he has extraordinary powers and is not of this Earth. As a young man, he journeys to discover where he came from and what he was sent here to do. But the hero in him must emerge if he is to save the world from annihilation and become the symbol of hope for all mankind.

    The film also stars four-time Oscar® nominee Amy Adams (“The Master”) as Daily Planet journalist Lois Lane, and Oscar® nominee Laurence Fishburne (“What’s Love Got to Do with It”) as her editor-in-chief, Perry White. Starring as Clark Kent’s adoptive parents, Martha and Jonathan Kent, are Oscar® nominee Diane Lane (“Unfaithful”) and Academy Award® winner Kevin Costner (“Dances with Wolves”).

    Squaring off against the superhero are two other surviving Kryptonians, the villainous General Zod, played by Oscar® nominee Michael Shannon (“Revolutionary Road”), and Faora, Zod’s evil partner, played by Antje Traue (upcoming “The Seventh Son”). Also from Superman’s native Krypton are Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s mother, played by Ayelet Zurer (“Angels and Demons”), and Superman’s father, Jor-El, portrayed by Academy Award® winner Russell Crowe (“Gladiator”).

    Rounding out the cast are Christopher Meloni (upcoming “42”) as U.S. military man Colonel Hardy, Harry Lennix (“State of Play”) as General Swanwick, Michael Kelly (“The Adjustment Bureau”) as Steve Lombard, and Richard Schiff (TV’s “The West Wing”) as Dr. Emil Hamilton.

    “Man of Steel” is being produced by Charles Roven, Christopher Nolan, Emma Thomas and Deborah Snyder. The screenplay was written by David S. Goyer from a story by Goyer & Nolan, based upon Superman characters created by Jerry Siegel & Joe Shuster and published by DC Entertainment. Thomas Tull, Lloyd Phillips and Jon Peters are serving as executive producers.

    Zack Snyder’s behind-the-scenes team includes director of photography Amir Mokri (“Transformers: Dark of the Moon”); production designer Alex McDowell (“Watchmen”); editor David Brenner (“Pirates of the Caribbean: On Stranger Tides”); and multiple Academy Award®-winning costume designer James Acheson (“Restoration,” the “Spider-Man” films) and costume designer Michael Wilkinson (“The Twilight Saga: Breaking Dawn – Part 1 and 2,” “Watchmen,” “300”). The music is by Academy Award®-winning composer Hans Zimmer (“The Lion King,” “Inception”).

    Warner Bros. Pictures presents, in association with Legendary Pictures, a Syncopy Production, a Zack Snyder Film, “Man of Steel.” The film will be released in 3D and 2D in select theaters and IMAX®, and is slated for release on June 14, 2013. It will be distributed worldwide by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

    This film has been rated PG-13 for intense sequences of sci-fi violence, action and destruction, and for some language.
