This week was always going to be a big one for DC Comics, particularly Superman, because Tuesday night was when The CW debuted their new series Superman & Lois, which is currently rated Fresh at 85%, and HBO Max announced that Zack Snyder’s Justice League, which prominently features the character, will debut online on March 18, 2021. The biggest Superman reveal of the week, however, is that J.J. Abrams will produce a Superman reboot to be adapted by award-winning novelist and Black Panther comic book writer Ta-Nehisi Coates. Speaking about his new assignment, Coates remarked, “I look forward to meaningfully adding to the legacy of America’s most iconic mythic hero.” As reported by The Hollywood Reporter, this reboot is “being set up as a Black Superman story” that has roots in previous efforts, including one with Michael B. Jordan in 2019.

Remaking white superheroes is just dumb.
