Real Name: Unknown
Group Affiliation: Justice League America
Power Set: Ability to manipulate lightning
from his hands.
Flight: transforms his lower body into pure energy, he becomes living lightning. Can travel at the speed of light, spot weld microelectronics. Vulcan can go where ever light and electricity goes and even operate proficiently underwater. Time travel is also within Vulcan's range of powers. He fluctuates his body into pure energy in such a way that it opens a rift in space and time.
Like his comrade's Apache Chief and Samurai, Black Vulcan first appeared on the Superfriends cartoon. for that era Vulcan set the standard and opened the doors for the Black Superheroes of the right now.
He's also been locked into comedic roles and a target for so many jokes and hilarious cameos. Surprisingly they've all been good for the most part.
And after all is said and done. Vulcan still comes across as a legitimate Superhero. At one time Alex Ross proposed to bring Black Vulcan into the Captain Marvel mythos. Update him as a hero connected to Shazam. DC rejected the idea. Imagine Black Vulcan painted by
Alex the Great One Ross. How can you not buy into that? OK, they didn't like the way Ross was going with it. So rework it! Suburban kid rescues little girl from collapsed drain enclosure; secret passageway...rock of eternity...seven deadly sins blah blah blah,
speaks the new magic words _________and is transformed into Vulcan! One of the champions of earth. Shazam is only one of the wizards so each wizard has a champion voila. Let's go fight some crime.
I also found out that DC alludes to Black Vulcan and Black Lightning being the same guy.
Retcon if you will.

A rework is definitely what's called for.
Because Super Volt needs some pants.
