    A book with black characters I'd get

    Storm
    Windshear
    Bishop
    Jesse Bedlam
    Tyke Alikar-The Anarchist
    Frenzy

    some of those characters are dead or depowered (Windshear is depowered and also has leukemia). this would imply healings-resurrections-repowerings

    I am Latin American and I don't like the idea of a book with only black characters just because btw. There has to be a reason apart from their race for that specific team to exist. Otherwise it sounds like they met in some private club only for black people.

    I would get a book with Storm and Bishop. Having just re-read some early X-Factor I would be interested in seeing where Frenzy is now. Whether I stayed with the book depends greatly on the writing / art and whether they can keep a Wolverine out of the book.

    Also most of those predominantly white book (lots of Jewish and gays tough) have casts with prior histories and established relationships so it makes sense for them to work together

    The all white teams haven't faired any better but we still have books that are all white, if not predominantly white. Just look to the current xbooks as evidence for that.

    The original Avengers and Defenders members had no prior histories of working together before forming a team. Or non team.

    The original X-Men and the relaunched team had no prior history. They were just random mutants that Prof X brought together.

    The all New all different X-Men weren't all black but had a very different races and they were particularly powerful mutants. Also the avengers didn't became a cohesive unit out of the blue but had to learn to work together and tolerate each other, and the defenders may had not histories as a team but the heroes knew each other and may had some team ups in the past.

    I've never seen Bishop or frenzy interact, NEVER

    I already said it could be done.

    Why do they need a reason to justify them being together? Why cant they just be a team and race not be addressed? If I recall correctly, the all female team never addressed by there were only woman on the lineup. They were just treated as another team of X-men.
    Obviously if we had an all black team, it would be a gimmick, but so what? A big deal doesnt need to be made of it

    I think you are referring to Captain America and the Mighty Avengers. That was Peter in the book, not Miles

    I've never seen Thor and Hank Pym interact before Avengers. I've never seen Scott and Bobby interact before X-Men.

    None of the heroes on these teams interacted prior to being a their team.

    Actually Cyke rescued Bobby from prison prior to x-men #1 and they became pals and trained together, they were already a team before they even met, it's in their back story from back up comics in early issues . Just read X-Men children of the atom to learn how the team formed

    As for thor and Pym they defeated Loki together before becoming avengers, Jan had to convince them to work together because they weren't sold on the idea

    And any of those as well as many others can be the premise for a team comprised of black mutants.

    There's no reason why they can't form a team.
