Growing up, I remember black superheroes from Marvel Comics. The Falcon was one of them. He was created by Stan Lee and Gene Colan. He was first introduced in the Captain America comic #117 (Sept. 1969) according to Wikipedia. It was exciting to me to see the Falcon because of his wings, and I didn’t see African Americans in cartoons and comics that much. The Falcon was the first African American Superhero.
