    black heroes and diversity: beyond the mask and under the cape

    Ralph Ellison once said, “When I discover who I am I'll be free.” Identity is crucial in both the development of marginalized populations as well as superheroes. How does one want to be a superhero when a hero can’t be themselves? How does one want to be another when that denies themselves? This panel will explore race, gender, and otherness in comics. The panelists will discuss beyond the mask and the cape looking at Black nerd culture and marginalized heroes. To be super is to be EXCEPTIONAL, and to be Black is to be anything and everything EXCEPT Black. However, if being Black is also invisible as Ralph Ellison writes, then we could ultimately be the greatest heroes ever.
