I watched the double-bill of Meteor Man and Blankman last night (talk about torture), as part of my research for an entry I was going to post on the dearth of black Superhero movies; further googling on the matter led me to this 7-minute piece from Korey over at the Black Superhero Blog that humorously sums it up.
