The First Black Lantern

You probably think it's Black Hand, don't you? Well you're wrong. Don't believe me? See for yourself:

Green Lantern #87 (1972)


  1. I love how it's stereotypical racist black guy in the first bubble of dialogue, then it's right back to proper English as he claims his name...

    ...which has black in it, because obviously any black character has to be named "Black Something".

  2. Yeah it's weird because the theme of the comic is actually fighting against racism, but in 2012, the comic itself seems racist.
