All Hail The Chief

One of my favorite highlights of 2017 was being invited by the wonderful Monique Jones to participate in a virtual roundtable discussion with other Native Black peers over on Just Add Color.

Gratitude to Monique for having me as well as the other lovely ladies who provided some most excellent insight to a wonderful discussion.

Why is this a cinematic milestone?

For the first time in history the Man of Steel, the Caped Crusader and the Amazon appeared together in a live action story. This is of monumental importance because not only are these iconic heroes the flagship franchises of D.C. Comics but they are also the cornerstones of western media and western culture.

BvS, and for that matter the D.C. Extended Universe in general, continue to be one of the most polarizing franchises for comic book fans and movie goers for reasons that range from legit critiques to absurd double standards.
