Who told you Superman wasn’t Black???

Uh, the comic. Have you ever picked one up?

…the idea of Superman was taken from old stories of African Gods like Horus so yea you mothafuckas never been original.

GET ‘EMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM

Do you have a source from DC comics that Superman was taken from that idea? Because I haven’t found a single one anywhere stating that.

From DC comics??? Lmao Do you think a white company like DC comics would say they stole the idea???? Did Elvis say he stole ideas from black musicians??? Did Thomas Edison say he stole ideas from Black inventors????? Did Columbus say he was really lost and the Black Moors on his boat actually led him to “America” so that he could trade with the Native Americans (not take their land)?????
Please think before you speak.
But those African stories of Horus have been around for a very long time. And its very funny how superman just happens to have similar abilities.

You are like speaking to a wall. I read up on Horus and there are no similarities. 1. Superman (Kahl-El) was born on an entire different made up planet. 2. Horus was a God of war who caught semen in his hand and threw it in a river (which superman never did) 3. Horus had his left eye gouged out (superman did not) 4. Horus also spread his semen on a piece of lettuce and fed it to someone (Again, superman did not do that or anything similar to that). 5. Horus liked to settle things with boat races (Nope can’t remember an issue where Superman did that) 6. Horus was often seen as a Falcon where one eye was the sun and the other the moon. 7. Superman was an alien to this planet raised by humans, Horus was raised by his mother who conceived him by creating a golden penis from her dead husband.
Again, you should source and stop blaming it on race and blame it on the fact you literally made it up. Why don’t you actually do research instead of trying to create a situation based on race.

Smh lets see the similarities
Being as though I said African Gods like Horus….lets go with Heru
1. Heru’s powers emanate from the sun because he is an aspect of the sun (Ra), the Supreme God. Superman as a Kryptonian gets his power from the earth’s yellow sun.
2. Heru comes from an advanced civilization of deities. As an infant, he came from Egypt to the earth with his mother Auset, to escape destruction. Superman, as an infant, comes from the advanced civilization of Krypton to escape destruction.
3. Heru lost his father. Superman lost his parents.
4. Heru possesses the divine strength, power, might, courage and endurance of a solar god. Superman possesses the superhuman strength, power, courage and stamina of a Kryptonian energized by the sun.
5. Heru, the Golden Falcon/Solar Hawk-the Winged Solar Disc can fly anywhere at supernatural speeds. Superman can fly faster than the speed of light.
6. Heru dies and was resurrected twice as Asar (Osiris) and as an infant. Superman died and was resurrected.
7. Heru fights the never-ending battle for Maat, which is Truth, Justice and Righteousness. Maat is his mother Auset (Isis). Superman fights for Truth, Justice and the American Way.
8. Heru is an Angel of God or Amon -Ra called a neter in Egyptian theology. Superman’s real name is Kal- El.
9. Heru possesses the All-Seeing Eye of Atum -Ra, God which is an aspect of his mother Auset, thereby giving him omniscience and solar heat vision. Superman has X-ray vision, telescopic vision and heat vision.
10. Heru is of the House of God, Atum-Ra. Superman is of the House of EL, God.
So what were you saying??????

DRAG HAAAAAAAA !!!!!!!!

African stories are lost in the fact that people don’ acknowledge where their ideas come from. Thank you for this. 

^^^^^

did she ever respond because… it’s always interesting once the facts are presented. they nearly always go silent.

She did with some “Heru isn’t Horus, I’ll look it up after work. I need sources blah blah typo blah…” bullshit

as if he didn’t make it clear (and it wasn’t available for her to read) that he said “like Horus” as an example of an African god and not “Superman was copied from Horus”. and she’s had the time to research. i’m guessing she realized how wrong she was and decided to pretend she didn’t see it.

You mean like this?

I feel like the Wonder Woman movie is a challenge to the fans. For years we all cried out for it and promised it would be a success. So know it has to make as much money as batman and superman do. I don't care if it's a shot for shot remake of the room done in WW cosplay this must make ass loads of money. Or else you prove them right and wondy is too tricky for film. This is the challenge support this movie put your money where your mouth is people

This is true to a degree.

I think it takes zero effort to complain that something doesn’t exist and should exist. It takes no commitment of any kind. “I want more films with female leads” can either be a call to arms or just a thing someone says in passing with no conviction whatsoever behind it.

At the same time, I hate the notion that people are OBLIGATED to support things simply because of the ideology. I want people to support things because they are awesome. I don’t think people should buy Ms. Marvel because they feel obligated, I want them to buy it because it’s one of the freshest books in ages.

Also, I think presenting the film as an obligation makes supporting it a chore. I would rather focus on why a Wonder Woman film could be amazing.

That’s my feeling on it. It’s true that supporting this movie could mean MORE movies featuring female leads, but again, if it’s terrible like Catwoman or Elektra, I don’t feel people should feel obligated to support it. Crap movies help no one.

I am hopeful, I get the skepticism, but I am hoping for the best because WONDER WOMAN.

Earlier this year Zora Ball was your average 1st grader until she decided to create and develop a mobile video game app, making her the youngest person to ever do so. At just 7-years old Zora managed to learn a programming language called “Bootstrap” that is normally used to teach kids ages 12 through 16 the different concepts of Algebra by using video games. Her teachers and family were astonished by her accomplishment. 

She was invited to an expo at the University of Penn where she was put on the spot and asked to reconfigure the app in front of everyone to prove that it was her that developed the mobile app in the first place and not her older brother who is a scholar student. Zora successfully did so and got rid of any doubt that anyone had. 
Zora Ball is now referred to a young prodigy with an extremely bright future in technology and computer science. Young Zora is an example of Black Excellence not having an age requirement.
