"People clamor for Black Panther or Luke Cage, and the incredible response when the Static show was announced -- that wasn't just black fans going 'yay, about time.' That was fans going, 'yay, about time.' Everyone knows diversity is good. We want black superheroes, we want female superheroes, we want Latino superheroes. That makes things better. And they don't have to be sidekicks or buddies, they can be rock stars themselves."
-- Reginald Hudlin, in an interview with Comic Book Resources, discussing the Static Shock live-action digital series, and the desire for diversity in superhero-comics adaptations
