DC POC CHARACTER QUESTION

gailsimone:

A tumblr brought up a fair point about POC DC characters who are still on the bench, and it got me wondering.

I have been kind of hyper-focused on a few key characters, hoping to see them come back. And I might be letting the big picture wander by.

So my question is, what significant POC heroes from pre-New52 DC are still on the bench?

Heroes only, please, for the purposes of this thread.


Thanks!

I just read some JSA and I wanna see more of Jakeem Thunder now. He’s an interesting character.

TOO BAD if you’re a writer wanting to mark your place in comic book history, because “Disco-Dancing Clark Kent” has already been done.

glenweldon:

SUPERMAN FAMILY #196. July-August 1979. “Super-Disco Fever!” Written by Cary Burkett, Penciled by Kurt Schaffenberger, Inked by Dan Adkins.

Clark Kent is taken to a discotheque by his fan club and discovers that a madman has hidden several bombs beneath the dance floor.

He slyly uses his super-powers to disarm each one, using only the raw propulsive musk-scented power of … his moves.

(“Shake your bootie?”)

I need this comic.
