Interesting Post on The Lack of Black Super Villains

Recently a discussion on a comics list serve talked about how minorities were often villains in the early super-hero comics, and someone even mentioned that African Americans were frequently villains. I then spent quite a bit of time trying to think of black super baddies and could think of none.

Funny how things come up: The link embedded in the title of this post will take you to a blogger's thoughts on why there are so few black super villains.

Actually, I lied. I did think if DC's Vixen and her boss. Maybe his name was Ox? Or maybe he was more an evil business man rather than a super villain. As for Vixen, she later became a member of the Justice League of America.
