Tuesday, August 12, 2014— Inserting Native Nations into the Comics

Consider Hulk, Magneto, Spider-Man and Superman. What's missing from this lineup? A Native American. Sure there's Starhaven, Black Crow, Danielle Moonstar and Warpath but,
Native characters don't really get the role when it comes to saving the earth from total destruction in mainstream comics and graphic novels. That's one reason why Native graphic artists are starting to pen their own Indigenous characters with familiar Native features and backgrounds. Many Native comic masters believe it's Natives who have to step up to represent in the comic world for different reasons from portraying a positive image to inspiring Native generations. What are the powers of the comics? What's your favorite character? If you were a comic superhero, what powers would you have and for what reason?
