|Only Batman is cold enough to use a super gun.|
Now the title of this article is mentions Batman is now black......Gotta say BATMAN IS STILL WHITE, but he started a little something upon his return called Batman Incorporated. This is a way to make a the symbol of Batman into an international Army, with it's soldiers stomping all over the world using "Batman" as an idea as opposed to just a person.

Issue #2: This was a continuation of the shocking events in issue one. We find David critically injured after seeing just about all of his fellow officers decapitated. He awakes in his batcave (called HAVEN) and Matu, his assistant has been taking care of him, meanwhile Massacre is on a rampage killing all of Africa's former Super Heroes. This book does a great job of grabbing the reader in. The series is masterfully written by Real World San Francisco alum, Judd Winick and drawn with the beautiful art of Ben Oliver. Not to familiar with Ben's work but I am a fan now and i have always enjoyed Judd's Storytelling style.

Got to tip the hat to DC for actually giving a number of their brand new books Black Superheroes. But Comics in general are cool with showcasing black heroes and the fans are good about picking up the books. Unlike Hollywood where there is tons of discrimination in film. Not saying there isn't a large amount of it in Comics, but your black character can survive easier in print than on film.
If you haven't checked it out yet issues one and two are available. What do you think of these changes and using black people in the place of popular characters? Do you think you will be picking up Batwing? Peace!!!
