Black superheroes in African comics
 
Eru is one of the superheroes created by a Nigerian start-up. Comic Republic

Have you ever heard of a black superman or a black Batman? Comic Republic, a Nigerian start up, is using African comics to show the world that superheroes like Superman and Batman do not necessarily have to be white. Using African characters with story lines based on African settings and culture the start-up is showing Africa’s version of superheroes. The African challenge of the white superhero comes at a time black actors in the United States were left out of the Academy Awards for Achievement in the film industry.
