Subj: black Villains at Marvel
Posted: Sat Jun 21, 2008 at 06:39:24 pm EDT


Are there any A-list black or African villains at marvel? There are obviously a lot of white and asian (Mandarin, Yellow claw, fu manchu, etc.) evil world beaters. but i realized i couldnt think of any major black villains, you know ones that can threaten the world or part of it. or have some ambition beyond just stealing money.

the black ones i think of tend to be on the less powered side and often become semi-heroes (rocket racer, prowler, equinox, etc) almost like the writers feel guilty about writing black villains and have to make them "misunderstood". others are just part of a larger group, like thunderball or man-ape

anyway, im sure there are some major league black villains out there. I just cant think of any at the moment. can anyone help me out?
