On this episode of Super. Black. Joining the show today, by my good buddy and fellow Berd Daniel O’Brien. We sat down to discuss the Blackification of popular characters. The overall question being, do these changes feel forced? Sam Wilson (Captain America, former Falcon), Riri Williams(Ironheart / Iron Man) and the yet-to-be-named new version of The Rocketeer take center stage as we dissect these characters for what seems like forever. All while trying to contain our nerd love for these classic characters.
With this All-New crop of black characters, would they be better served divorced from these iconic mantles? Do we come to a consensus? Rule of threes third question? Find out all of this and more in this edition of Super. Black.!

Berd: A Black Nerd. I don’t adhere to the term “Blerd”. It reminds me of the onomatopoeia “Blah” which is dismissive and negative. Also, regular birds can fly, so I’m a Berd.
Onomatopoeia: And overly long word overcompensation for its admittedly mundane meaning
Blackification: It’s basically race-swapping but that sounds both racist and like an early 2000’s reality show title, so Blackification it is.
