Really? With the exception of breaking out the annual Halloween costume, is an amateur web series the closest thing the black community will come to being able to experience being a superhero?
The Washington Post explains here how the lack of diversity on television is driving film makers to the internet to create a platform to showcase their talents in character roles that they will never get in Hollywood.
In the meantime, CHICK (chickspirit.com) is a comic drama that uses the superhero as a metaphor for exploring human potential. Hidden somewhere in the urban jungle of Los Angeles there is thought to be a secret academy where regular people can train to become superheroes. The web series follows the adventures of Lisa, a woman disillusioned with her life, as she sets out on a quest to realize what she believes is her destiny; to become a superhero.[mashshare]
