Representation and Health 101: SHANA of the Holograms

It’s time to feel the groove in a new Representation and Health Black History Spectacular column! Today’s focus is a character who existed long before her comic. However, upon her return with her famous friends, many people, including myself were excited. She exemplifies Black people as dynamic individuals and helps to dash some stereotypical notions

Representation and Health 101: CAPTAIN AMERICA Isaiah Bradley

In this installment of the Representation and Health Black History Spectacular, we are going to focus more intently on… well, history. There’s someone who’s vital to Marvel history, even if he made his first appearance in 2003. He reveals the tragic, racist, and violent past of America, but also how the achievements of White people

Representation and Health 101: PRODIGY David Alleyne

Here it is, yet another installment of the Representation and Health Black History Spectacular! This time, I’m going to shine light on a character whose importance I didn’t realize until very recently. Within the pages of the latest volume of Young Avengers, Prodigy, aka David Alleyne, proved that he has value for more than just

Representation and Health 101: THUNDER Anissa Pierce

It’s time again for another Representation and Health Black History Spectacular! Today, I’m talking about someone who’s had my attention since I first discovered her.

Representation and Health 101: GREEN LANTERN John Stewart

It’s time for another Representation and Health Black History Spectacular article and I’m particularly ready to jump into this one. With each new column, I realize how much more complex these characters are and today’s character very much fits that description. Whether you first encountered him on the page or in the cartoons, he is

Representation and Health 101: BUMBLEBEE Karen Beecher-Duncan

Hello and welcome to another chapter of the Representation and Health Black History Spectacular! As I was planning this project, I consulted with our awesome Editor-in-Chief Aaron and Senior Editor Matt about who to include. They both agreed on Bumblebee, which made me happy because she is one of my favorite Titans. From the first

Representation and Health 101: BLACK PANTHER T’Challa

Welcome to the next installment of the Representation and Health Black History Spectacular! Today’s focus is someone I don’t think I could’ve left off the list, though I honestly came close. Yet, my awesome friend Ty (@TyDugganWrites) encouraged me to write from my personal relationship with Black Panther and what he represents but also what

Representation and Health 101: FRENZY Joanna Cargill

In continuation of the Representation and Health Black History Spectacular, today’s article is going to focus on a mutant I find very intriguing. My first contact with Frenzy was around the time of Utopia, as she and another mutant, Nekra, were attacked by then-Ms. Marvel Karla Sofen, aka Moonstone. What I liked about Frenzy was
