Finally !!!

A Black superhero who wasn't a thief, convict, gang member or son of a prostitute.

Blade - Born in a whorehouse to a prostitute.

Luke Cage - Imprisoned for a crime he did not commit.

Bishop - Street urchin who resorted to theft to survive.

Cyborg - Rebellious youth and former gang member.

Spawn - Sold his soul to the devil.

Storm - Orphaned thief.

Misty Knight - (Nothing bad in her bio, I just liked this rendering of her)

It's odd - even with the great Stan Lee at the helm many Black superheroes have to have some type of ghetto background.

(Stan's thoughts on racism.)

Deep Space Nine - Captain Sisko had to be half alien to be an epic hero.
