The success of Marvel's Black Panther and Luke Cage show that when Black creators are given full creative control over Black superhero properties, they produce works that highlight the best elements of the source material (Wakanda!) and transcend the worst elements of it (Man-Ape transformed into M'Baku). Let's examine how movies, TV shows and comics featuring Black characters originally created by non-Black writers and artists change when writers from the African diaspora get a chance at the helm, and which characters are in desperate need of similar treatment.
