Which major male superheroes have been portrayed by persons of color?

I can only think of Dean Cain as Superman.

Jason Momoa would like a word with you, OP.

I’m not a comic book fan, but are Black Panther, Blade and War Machine major super heroes?

Stirm is a major super hero. Catwoman is a major superheroine AND villainess.

Skeletor, as a supervillain, because he's the color of a skeleton? Geez I don't know. Many superheroes were written in the 40s, 50s and 60s. What do you expect?

Oh my, a superhero I'm not familiar with.

What color is Dean Cain, anyway? Warm ivory? Creamy sunset?

Catwoman was black way back in the 60s.

I would say ivory is a good descriptor.

Yes, actually.

He had his own Saturday morning TV series in the 60s, and he was one of the five original Super Friends (with Superman, Batman, Robin, and Wonder Woman).

Spawn was a major male superhero. He was played by Michael Jai White.

Blade? Spawn? Stirm? War Machine? These are major superheroes?

Black Panther and Blade? Yes.

War Machine, kinda but not really?

You can add Spawn & Luke Cage to that list though. Ghost Rider has been in the past.

I'd consider them major heroes since they were popular enough to have their own films or in Luke Cage's case, a TV series.

It seems like there is more diversity in superheroes than there is on the genres..

You were [italic]explicitly[/italic] told Spawn was a major superhero when he was mentioned. Did you have trouble reading?

And it's Storm, not Stirm, and she's a member (and has frequently been the leader) of the most popular of all superhero teams, the X-Men.

Also, if we are going to mention major superheroines as well as male superheroes: Lynda Carter, who played Wonder Woman, is Hispanic.

Tyler Hoechlin, who currently plays Superman in the Arrowverse, is very proud of his Native American heritage.

Luke Cage is the best Marvel product they've made. Genuinely an excellent show, could stand on it's own apart from any franchise.
