In 2005, I wrote what is, so far, my only magazine cover story.
The Weekly Reader publication Know Your World Extra ran it.
Hard-hitting, it was not. But it did have a good angle.
The article addressed the trend (still in effect) of comic book companies (particularly the one with which I’m most familiar, DC Comics) taking the name of an established white superhero and creating a new, nonwhite version.
Firestorm became black.
Blue Beetle became Hispanic.
The Atom became Asian.
The Crimson Avenger became (no, not crimson) black…and female. Now female in the New 52: the Atom (Hispanic, too), Shadow-Thief, Wotan...
Numerous other examples exist.
The Justice League of All of America.
