The first black superhero to appear in a mainstream comic book was the Black Panther, making his debut in 1966. Marvel then brought the Falcon to Captain America in 1969 and others gradually followed. The very first black hero, however, was a character named Voodah who was created by Matt Baker, the first person of African descent to rise to fame in the comic book industry. Voodah was soon “white-washed”, however, returning as a Caucasian in subsequent issues. Baker contributed to dozens of graphic publications during the Golden Age of comic books and was inducted into the Comic Book Hall of Fame in 2009.
