    I wish Seeley didn't delete his tweet. Less of a hassle proving that he created her to be Black Italian. Even if he changes his mind and decides that she's mixed or tan, people tend to shut up faster about the skin color if you say she's black.

    One country and one continent can only have one skin color and one race apparently.

    There is no such thing as a Black Italian. This is Europe, not the USA. We refer to black people simply as African or by their ethnicity. Yes, foreigners can get citizenship and enjoy the same rights as the native population. However etchnically they can't be part of the same ethnic group (in this case the Italian etchnic group). Europe is not multiracial or multicultural as the USA is. Africa and Asia are the most multiracial and multicultural continents in the world. Only 3 % of Europe's population is non-European and most of them don't have citizenship, just residency permits. Europe has over 90 European ethnic groups and over 50 countries. Each ethnic group has it's own tradition and culture. Europe is a homogeneous continent but we have ethnic diversity because there are many ethnic European groups here. In Europe, Asia and Africa the census of each country is based on ethnicity, not on race as is the case with the USA.

    "And her series wasn't "cancelled"; it was announced as a six-issue mini-series right from the beginning and ran for all six issues."


    Sorry. I didn't know that.

    After the six issues, Helena and Power Girl starred in Worlds' Finest, a companion title to the series Earth 2. Both of those titles were a part of what was referred to as the New52's "Second Wave".

    Worlds' Finest lasted until issue #32, though Huntress and Power Girl weren't featured after issue #26. (They had returned to Earth 2 by then and were a part of the ongoing Earth 2 series at that point.)

    Okay, difference in term then.

    Seeley call it Black Italian because he's using US term, and I don't know if he means she's African with Italian nationality, or a mixed of African race and Italian ethnicity.
