In the new series Batwing DC Comics is bringing one of the world’s most popular super heroes to the cradle of civilization. “Batwing #1” will feature the first black character to don the Batman suit. Editor Mike Marts told IGN that this wasn’t a flight of fancy on their part. This is a legitimate story line from the Batman universe and that he will be African, not a Black American.
“Batwing #1 is a series that spins right out of Grant Morrison’s Batman Incorporated storyline. This is the first time that we have an in-continuity black character wearing the Batman costume.”
