    I have a lot of favourite black characters in DC who need much more exposure, or their own title.

    Green Lantern (John Stewart): I'm a longtime Hal fan, but I've always loved John Stewart. There should be more than one Green Lantern title, there should be a few in my opinion. (A John/Guy team up series would be awesome)
    Mr. Terrific: Micheal Holt, a notable improvement over the golden age one, and simply one of the coolest characters on the JSA today.
    Vixen: Of all the Detroit JLA characters, Vixen is the one that really took off, to being featured in the JLA cartoon, to being a member of the Birds of Prey, her popularity has really grown over the years.
    STEEL: aesthetically this guy looks so cool. I've always felt he had great potential to catch on if used correctly.
    Black Lightning: Has definitely surpassed Geo Force as the most popular member of the Outsiders (Batman aside)
    Bronze Tiger: You know your getting old when you can remember Bronze Tiger. Simply put, a really cool marital arts character, I would like to see him used a whole lot more.

    Wallace West & Jackson Hyde, great young characters, they should being pushing them now, so in 20 years their fanbase is strong enough to jump from the Titans into the role of Flash and Aquaman, like Wally did for Barry.

    I didn't see the excluding part of the thread so I botched my vote, thinking you left off John Stewart. On the current list I would have chosen Mr. Terrific.

    Don't know if you missed it but he's got his own team book now entitled "The Terrifics"

    Oh and I'll throw my vote to him as well.
    My priority is enjoying and supporting stories of timeless heroism and conflict.
    Everything else is irrelevant.

    Thank you, I was unaware of that. I'll definitely add it to my reading list.

    Take All New All Different Marvel-who gave shots to plenty of established characters-yet hatefest for certain ones of color and sexuality overshadowed them.

    Take Rocket or Wally or others-how many times have we heard writers wanted to use BLANK and was told by editorial NO. A few with claims of something being done with them or just flat out refusals.

    Take the last Black Lightning or Cyborg series-how much of editorial has gotten in the way of those books.

    These guys sit on the side lines while others find success.

    I can't understand the complete lack of push Vixen gets.
    She has potential to be a true icon if DC gave her enough focus.
    Maybe now that Naomi and to a lesser extent Jo have proved successful as black female leads, they'll turn their attention to Vixen too.
    She should have gotten a solo the moment her animated series or CW appearances were announced.

    Her name is... unlucky. Also her power set is strange (I don't like GL's either). Supermodels are divas.

    There isn't any problem with her name or her powerset. And what models are supposedly like in real life shouldn't matter.

    I liked her in Ostrander's SS run but nothing since has made me miss her. Sadly I can't think of a black DC heroine aside from Amanda Waller and Vixen. Amanda is great, Vixen unlucky
