DC Comics To Unveil A Black Superman

DC Comics To Unveil A Black Superman

DC Comics has revealed that their upcoming Action Comic # 9 in the series will present for the first time a black Superman

The stand alone comic, written by regular series writer Grant Morrison with art work by Gene Ha, takes place on a alternative Earth in which the superhero battles with a monster from a parallel world, a Superman surrogate known as Superdoom.

Anyone out there think this will raise the hackles of those people who got upset when Idris Elba played that Nordic god Heindall in that Thor movie last summer?

I hope it does.
