In this fast-paced series (pun intended), Absalon White Jr. is a 19 year old from Chandler, AZ who obtains the power of super speed, in a tragic accident. Not wanting the powers imposed upon him, Absalon White Jr. seeks to find the person responsible for giving him super speed, while trying to come to terms with what he can’t change…for now.
“The reason why I created a superhero universe centered around black superheroes is simply because there aren’t enough black superheroes in the world. If I asked your average Joe who knows nothing about superheroes, to name 5 white superheroes, he could do it in a pinch, but if I asked that same person to name 5 black superheroes, he would have had to hard to name 2, let alone 5. And so I wanted to create a black led comic book universe that other kids and adults who look like me, can have superheroes who look like them, to look up to. being said, i don’t want there to be any confusion, my comics are not just for the black community, my comics are for the world and for every ethnicity to enjoy and identify with. you are black, white, hispanic, asian, etc. my comics are for everyone and i hope anyone who reads my comics comics, regardless of ethnicity, is able to connect with my superheroes on a personal level and see themselves in my heroes.”
