    I’m glad people are talking about black Vulcan . I just wish black Vulcan had his own action live tv series like arrow and flash tv series. I think channel 6 cw should take this in consideration.or have black Vulcan in a movie. Like shaquille as steel and Halle berry as catwoman.

    That’s why I’m wearing my black Vulcan costume. Cause I want to be the black Vulcan. But no one could ever replace buster Jones aka the real black Vulcan.people seen my pictures of me as black Vulcan and say that I look like him. If you look up JarrietFair on Facebook. You will see my black Vulcan costume.. and judge for yourself. Women say that they love my costume and that black Vulcan has cute legs for a super hero.. I think I will win a prize for best costume I can honestly hope.

    I TOO WOULD LIKE TO SEE A REBOOT OF BLACK VULCAN(SHOULD BE VULTAN) AND ALTHOUGH HIS POWERS ARE SIMILAR TO BLACK LIGHTNING, HE CAN TRANSFORM TO PURE ENERGY,(AT LEAST PART OF HIMSELF), WHICH MAKES HIM MORE POWERFUL THAN BLACK LIGHTNING. IT WOULD BE INDEED AWESOME IF HE WERE BROUGHT BACK…………ALL WE NEED IS AN ARTIST ANA DREAM.
