A cool way to celebrate MLK Day

An artist, Alijah Villian (find him on twitter) celebrated MLK day by “…taking well-known white superheroes…and racebending them to look like they were played by actors of color…This is a commentary on the dearth of non-white heroes being portrayed in Hollywood movies.”
I think this is fantastic. Non white races are grossly under represented in the media, especially in super hero films. I really hope that will change.
