So I was having a nice chat with someone and it hit me that a lot of newer black super heroes (male) have either been in the armed forces or been a cop. It was such an odd realization. To be honest I could probably scour the depths of that thought and pull forth all kinds of subtext but that'd be making it into more than it is to me. More than just a simple observation. So with that I leave off with a list of some of the heroes in question.
Jon Stewart (Green Lantern/DC)
James "Rhodey" Rhodes (War Machine/Marvel)
Michael Lane (Azrael/DC)
Mark Richards (Tattooed Man/DC)
