Through interviews with prominent artists, scholars, and cultural critics along with images from the comic books themselves, this film examines the degree to which early black superheroes generally adhered to common stereotypes about Black men. From the humorous to the offensive, early black superheroes are critically considered. Participating panelists include Jonathan Gayles (Georgia State University, writer/producer/director), Julian Chambliss (Rollins College, co-editor: Ages of Heroes, Eras of Men), and Adilifu Nama (Loyola Marymonut, author ofSuper Black: American Pop Culture and Black Superheroes).
