    Oh God, Cyborg isn't even Cyborg there! He's that goddamn Omegadrome Cyborg! I hated the 90s Titans comics although I do appreciate trying to get rid of Cyborg's outdated disco look. Couldn't they have RoboCop'd him?

    Some very interesting developments, Vixen was making a comeback but John has pulled further ahead, Vic has secured the third spot by a comfortable margin, Black Lighting has received a nice little bump (still pulling for ya buddy! top 4, you can do it!), and while Wallace is still in last place he has finally gotten a vote.

    Interesting developments indeed. I like that John and Vixen are the top two. I figured Static would have been more popular. I am surprised to see that less people have voted for Static than for the Steel I or II.

    Has anyone made a similar thread for the Marvel forums? I'm sure it would get plenty of attention/votes.

    I think Static's standing is reflective of Milestone's fading presence in the public consciousness. People remember Static and Milestone but the lack of new content from them due to the legal nonsense has allowed other character to become more prominently in people's minds nowadays. It's sad but hey, DC's the one leaving money on the table, it's a big enough company that DC could fix this if it really wanted to.

    I'm sure there have been, and I'm sure that Storm (and, to a lesser extent, Black Panther, Luke Cage, Blade, etc.) has blown them away. I'm all about the Monica Rambeau or people who wouldn't even make the list, like Sun Girl.

    It's kind of fun that my absolute favorites are either right near the top, like Vixen, or swirling the drain at the bottom, like Bumblebee and Bronze Tiger.

    Speaking of not making the list, I've recently developed a soft spot for Tyroc (with the new sonic powers and cool red costume not the 'random screams that do stuff' and pixie-booted disco ensemble...), and always been a fan of Kid Quantum 2 (from the Reboot Legion). Skyrocket, from the Power Company, was also neat, although I liked Isaiah Power (who was more of a supporting character) even more.

    I love the idea of Tyroc, he's really the closest thing DC has to Black Panther and I don't think they noticed or intended for that to be the case. If there were any character I would want to get a crack at if I worked at DC, it would 1000% be Tyroc.

    Im also surprised at Static's ranking. Thought he'd be higher. Same with Bumblebee, but I guess that's more on DC's neglect of the characters rather than based on how well liked they are.

    There's the old Marvel version. Black Panther and Storm blew everyone out the water. A distant 3rd place was a close race between Spectrum, Blue Marvel, Luke Cage, Miles and Falcon, with Spectrum coming out on top.

    https://community.cbr.com/showthread...reciation-2019

    Here's the recent one. Same results, just no Blue Marvel included for some reason.
    Done with DC. Can't handle the constant whiplash! Time to go on a hiatus!

    Going from my experience, it seems to me John Stewart is easily the most popular black superhero at DC, and he has the most passionate fanbase, by far. Thing is, he's also one of the more disliked as well, because he contends with other versions of Green Lantern. Thus, people who probably really don't have much of an interest in any of these characters will vote against him on those grounds alone, though that doesn't mean they're especially passionate for whoever else they vote for.

    aside from both being African superheroes, what really do David and Black Panther have in common? not much. Tyroc and T'Challa are both superpowered protectors of highly advanced isolated African nations. David is a Congolese former-child soldier who was given tech by batman to fight crime in Africa, not exactly a close parallel.

    Yeah, Tyroc is much closer, thematically, to Black Panther, than Batwing. More about his role as super-powered protector of Marzal would be interesting to read about, actually.

    Marzal is sorely in need of updating and development, to come anywhere close to being 'DC's Wakanda.'
