Famed editor and writer JIM SHOOTER talks with Geoff about Ferro Lad, a character he created for DC's Legion of Superheroes as a teenage writer in the mid-60s. Ferro Lad, the boy hero whose sacrifice changed comics in the 1967 "Death of Ferro Lad," appeared on DC's pages as white -- but he wasn't supposed to be. Jim Shooter discusses why he originally wrote Ferro Lad as Black, the political and social causes that inspired him, and why DC suppressed the idea. Learn more about your ad choices.
