Once upon a time, it was 1989. A character named Rocket Racer, a former super criminal, had reformed, and was reappearing in the pages of Spider-Man. At the same time, in Thor, a new super team, the New Warriors, had debuted, and among their number was the character Night Thrasher.

There was something disturbingly similar about these two characters. Three somethings:

1) They were teenagers.
2) They were black (in fact, they comprised a full quarter of the black superheroes in Marvel Comics at the time.)
3) They had skateboards. (well, it was the 80s)

Dwayne MacDuffie realized something was amiss here, and decided to do something about it.

Namely, shame Marvel.
