It is a rare book indeed that makes me like Storm. And yet here I sit, thinking about how much I enjoyed Storm in Extraordinary X-Men #1, one of the many, post-Secret Wars books that Marvel is starting to put out.

I’m not sure exactly how this happened, but right from the get-go I found myself thinking how awesome Storm looks. She’s got a great new costume and still retains the bad-ass mohawk. The story also starts off with Storm in an interesting place. She is now headmaster of the Xavier Institute (or whatever the name happens to be in this particular iteration) and things are going badly for mutants. When one thinks about everything bad that has happened to mutants over the years, this is not really a surprise, but Storm’s attitude makes me feel like this is something different. Continue reading

Our Favorite Black Heroes

Over the past couple months, we’ve had several requests from readers who are interested in comics, but would like to know about some black heroes. So in order to help our friends out, I’ve gone through and come up with a few of my favorites and some of the more popular ones. This is by no means an all inclusive list, but instead a good place to start.

John Stewart

One of the four Green Lanterns from Earth, John Stewart has been guarding Sector 2814 since the early 70’s. Stewart is the by far the most stable and reliable of Earth’s Green Lanterns, providing a grounded perspective, especially when compared to fellow Lanterns Hal Jordan, Kyle Rayner and Guy Gardner. After the launch of DC’s New 52 Stewart took over the star role in Green Lantern Corps.

Cyborg

Victor Stone became Cyborg when he was seriously injured by a creature from an extra dimensional experiment gone wrong. Initially a member of the Teen Titans, Cyborg has earned himself a place as a fan favorite. Cyborg has taken an interesting turn in the last few years. There has been a serious push to make him more of a big deal since the start of the New 52. This has included making Cyborg a founding member of the Justice League, giving him a leading role in Teen Titans Go! and a rumored appearance in the new Superman-Batman movie. Continue reading
