Storm before Thunder.

Why are DC’s black heroines so dull and incompetent? I don’t understand this. Their black heroes are great. Their black villainesses are tremendous. Could it be that I’m just not judging these characters fairly? Do I have a Marvel bias? Are there recent issues I’m not aware of where Vixen and Thunder are simply amazing? Are there other black heroines aside from Thunder and Vixen that I should know about?

Some of my favorite artists and writers have been snatched up by DC, which has piqued my interest in the DC universe. But then I compare Vixen and Thunder to Storm and Misty and I change my mind about taking the plunge. I really like Tommy though! However, I suppose Wildstorm doesn’t count as part of the DC universe.
