  5. I’m personally excited about the new capt. Universe because this is the first super powered cosmic celestial black hero,at least that I can remember. I guess that’s one step forward now we just have to wait for the two steps back.

  6. Capt. Universe is straight outta the 60’s so maybe a name change is in order but I would love to see her and Photon do a team up. Now that’s some serious black power!
