    Imagine calling Black Panther the worse black hero ever when Icon exists.

    Blue Marvel is arguably the best written character of the last decade.

    >Captain America and the Mighty Avengers
    >Ultimates
    >Ultimates 2
    >Defenders: Beyond
    People will come out and say all these books are shit, or Ewing is shit, or I'm a shill, but these are all some of the best books to come from the House of Ideas.

    Also, calling him Black Superman means you've never actually read a book he starred in. If anything he's Black Tom Strong or Captain America meets Reed Richards. The flying brick powers are an afterthought.

      You trippin. Ewing writes enjoyable stories, but BM is a horrible mary sue, with absurd powerset, really fricking shitty attitude, which never backfires and is one step from being written unironically in the way Sentry was written in the first mini. WITHOUT any drawbacks or price. Frick off.

        Absurd powerset how? He's just another flying brick, same as Wonder Man, Captain Marvel, Hyperion, Gladiator, etc. Calling him out for being strong but "having no drawbacks" is weird. Keep that energy when the Wonder Man show comes out and Simon gets shoved down our throats.

      No offense, but frankly Blue Marvel reads like an incredibly uncharismatic version of Icon who is already explicitly "The black Superman" of the Dakotaverse. Frankly, I'd go to bat for T'challa, Rhodey Jones, Luke Cage and Blade any day of the week (and maybe weekends for Sam Wilson cause I know it's bad writers that made him pivot from being a self-assured daredevil and voice of reason into someone far more insecure and b***hy), but you're going to have to tell me what the appeal is for Blue Marvel because he is like one of the biggest and most snobbish bores to ever suck up ink on the comic page, like even worse than Reed Richards can be. Forget Blue Marvel, they might as well call him Blue Wet Blanket because that's far more accurate to how little I enjoy his appearances on the comic pages.

        No version of Icon has ever been 'charismatic'.

        People Cinemaphile puts Icon on a pedestal because he's Republican and ignore that the point of the OG comic: he was wrong about almost everything.

          Thank you. Icon was interesting because Rocket was there as the contrast. Ewing did something similar in Mighty Avengers with Luke Cage.
          By late CA&tMA and The Ultimates Blue Marvel had moved past race politics and was focused on superhero ethics. The comparisons were on the team as a whole vs The Illuminati or the Fantastic Four, or his disagreements with Carol and T'Challa.

          Definitely not wrong, but thing is that Icon at least had a personality, even if it's being an ultra-conservative who's too old for this shit that has to be forcibly reminded that no, he absolutely can and should be doing shit to improve the world instead of moping about. To me, Blue Marvel's even drier and pointless than that. Icon at least has a character arc. Blue Marvel doesn't even have a character.

            New characters get created and inserted into Marvel Comics history all the time. This isn't unique to the Sentry. Did you read The Twelve? Have you seen Avengers 1000000 BC?
            Shit, it isn't even a new concept. Think about all the retcons they did inserting out of continuity Timely characters into Captain America's history. William Naslund? Jeffrey Mace? William Burnside?
            Come on, now.

      His mini was pretty good. Being a new IP and an Inhuman was a death sentence.

        Plus his first issue was a few pages longer than normal so it was a dollar more than any other comic which is stupid to do for a new character. Keep in mind at the same time Ms Marvel was a dollar less than other comics BECAUSE she was new.

        Yeah I was disappointed that Mosaic didn't end up taking off. Maybe he could resurface in a team book in the future and get some character growth.

    I feel like most of your experience and critiques of black super heroes is based on maybe, recent comic tie-ins to the movies or the movies themselves. And yea it's kind of shit and it might not be fair to expect or ask people to learn 20-50 years of reading material. But still and it sad that most of these guys are being judged, opinions are being informed of them mainly by today's creative standards.

        He's really not. War Machine was in the Marvel vs Capcom arcade game because Activision had the Iron Man license. Because of that, for a few years around the turn of the century, kids were more excited for War Machine than Iron Man.
