X-Men Ororo Monroe aka Storm (Halle Berry)

Who's your favorite black superhero?

It's time for the results of last times poll and the new question.

The world of superheroes has a small, but powerful, set of minority superheroes. Next week I'll be doing a post on the top 10 greatest Black superheroes, but here's your chance to help make up the list. For the purposes of this list, I'm using the definition from Wikipedia:
"Black is a term usually referring to a racial group of humans with dark skin color, used to categorize a number of diverse populations into one common group. This list includes African-American characters and characters of sub-Saharan African descent or populations characterized by dark skin color" - Wikipedia

So here's the question:


By the way, you can follow the Twitter conversation below. If you tweet about this poll using hashtag #GTpoll it'll show up in the Twitter list below.


Here are the results of last week's poll - Which is Your Favorite Movie Based on a Book? - in order of popularity:
  1. Jurassic Park
  2. Contact (1997)
  3. Dune
  4. The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy
  5. Blade Runner
  6. The Iron Giant
  7. The Andromeda Strain
  8. Children of Men
  9. Clockwork Orange
  10. The Hunger Games
  11. Planet of the Apes (1968)
  12. The Prestige
  13. Rise of the Planet of the Apes
  14. Scanner Darkly
  15. Starship Troopers
  16. The Thing (1982)
  17. Time Traveler's Wife

Vote above and come back in two weeks for the results and the next poll.

Come back next week for the bi-weekly caption contest and comes back in two weeks for the next poll.

Falcon was my pick.

Roderick T Faulkner said...

Great list! Though I wish Michael Holt a.k.a. the modern Mr. Terrific had been included.

Maurice Mitchell said...

Good one! I almost put him in Roderick, but I wanted to keep the list short. Add him!

John Garrett said...

LOL you threw Black Vulcan in there! That's too much. Honestly I'm not partial to any of these guys. Steel would probably be the best of the lot, but I can't say he's a favorite. My fav would be Icon, although I know he hasn't been around much these days...

Meradeth Snow said...

I had to vote for Storm, because I've always loved her, though I did think Blade would also be a great addition to the list :)

Maurice Mitchell said...

Great choice Alex. I think we'll see more of him in the future.

Ty said...

Black Panther is easily the best in Comics right now

Roderick T Faulkner said...

Done!

Al Simmons Aka SPAWN, although my son realy likes Cyborg.

Pat Dilloway said...

Of all those John Stewart is probably the one I've read the most. I'm not sure who would win in a fight.

Tony Laplume said...

Steel from the available list, but my favorite will always be the increasingly obscure Bloodwynd.
