Wow!  Closed-minded fanboy commenters never disappoint do they!?!  It's especially interesting to see these people so fixated with color that they completely overlook that Superman is not even of the human race.  Articles like this can help creators and readers alike by validating possibilities and alternative points of view. This should help to further inclusion.  "Superman: Red Son" seems to have been well received as a "what if" alternative point of view.  Seems to me that a Superman Black would be equally ripe with sub plot.  What would the Kents do?  How would he be received by the people of Earth?  Boom Studio's "Strange Fruit" is/was exploring this very thing in a fictional antebellum American South setting.  Thanks for sharing this Kip!
