Mister Terrific(my personal favorite)
Firestrom (technically half black)
Monica Rambeau (she's an Avenger)
Steel (frick you he's a good character)
There are several of great black heroes...why bother making white heroes black? Is it because some audiences (black people included) won't support a lesser known commodity and prefer the brand label?
I get what you're saying, and I don't even necessarily disagree. I think making a white superhero black in a movie just for the sake of doing it is stupid. In this case though, I think it works. Elba is a big guy, smooth talker, distinguished. Except for the fact that he's black, he would fit perfectly imo.
Night Thrasher's parent's were killed in front of him when he was very young. He started to hate lawbreakers, and began to train in the martial arts in order to punish them. He forgot about how his parents died and the face of their killer. He later learned that his parents had been killed as part of a plan orchestrated by an elderly Asian women named Tai. During the day, he ran the Taylor Foundation. By night, he trained and began to patrol the streets. Dwayne met two other vigilantes, Silhouette and Midnight's fire, and the three began to try to lessen the gang population in New York. Both vigilantes were the children of Dwayne's guardian, Andrew Chord.
