Writer Ta-Nehisi Coates launched a new volume of Black Panther in 2016, along with artist Brian Stelfreeze. Coates was already a renowned African-American writer, winner of a National Book Award and MacArthur Foundation Genius grant, so his tenure brought a lot of attention to the comic, as a ramp up toward the 2018 Black Panther Marvel feature film.

In 1993, four African-American comic creators — Dwayne McDuffie, Denys Cowan, Michael Davis, and Derek T. Dingle — joined together to create Milestone Comics. Feeling that minorities were underrepresented in comic stories, the first four Milestone titles focused of protagonists of color. While the original Milestone only lasted until 1997, the group went on to develop of TV show from their Static character and have subsequently folded the Milestone characters into the DC universe during the New 52 reworking of the DC universe.

Dwayne McDuffie started his comic career as a Marvel assistant on special projects, helping develop Marvel trading cards, before moving on to writing/editing. He then became one of the founding members of Milestone Comics. He is probably best known for his contributions to writing and producing animation. He developed the Milestone Comics property into the animated series Static Shock, before moving on to becoming the driving force behind the Justice League animated superhero franchise. It is quite arguable that the prolific and popular DC animation output, which now includes a constant stream of direct-to-DVD movies, would not have come to be without his critical early input. Sadly, Dwayne McDuffie died in 2011 from a heart attack at the age of only 49.

Being slammed in the crotch with a name brand Frisbee was sadly NOT the most embarassing moment of Colossus’ day.

The Marvel Military has really doubled down on phalluses.

Wolverine did not sign up to be the meat in a Nightcrawler sandwich!

Something tells me that Mystique shops at Hot Topic.

You give love a bad name.

We call this the “Reverse Alien” and it will definitely cost you extra.
