While this isn’t a comic title nor a creator nor a Black character, just something I felt needed to point out something to future creators out there regarding Africa:
Africa has over 60 countries and regions within it and over 2100 languages.
Africa is huge. Seriously, really, extremely big. How big? Well, imagine walking from New York to Los Angeles. After you’re done with that, you enter this door that leads you to all of Europe up to Russia, and then you enter another door that leads to all of China and another door that leads to all of India.  A whole lot of series of doors connecting a lot of countries. That’s the size of Africa. It’s huge. 
Just felt like pointing that out tonight because when I see stuff like, say, the hero of Africa, people have no idea how big the continent really is. I blame good ol’ fashioned book-learnin’(or a lack of real education about the subject courtesy of Eurocentric and US-centric curriculums)  for that mentality.
