Black Vulcan is a fictional superhero on the animated series Super Friends created by Hanna-Barbera. He was voiced by Buster Jones.

Unlike most of the Super Friends, Black Vulcan was not a pre-existing DC Comics character. This is particularly notable since DC Comics' roster did include an African American superhero with electricity-based powers, Black Lightning, who could not be used on the show due to disputes between DC and Black Lightning's creator Tony Isabella. He expected some royalties from the use of his character, go figure.

As originally depicted, Black Vulcan's costume had the super-hero equivalent of pants, but in later episodes his legs are bare. So I restored the pants as it bugged me when standing him next to my increasingly modern looking Justice League, only to find that the character looked way too similar looking to a Yellow Lantern. Also it was a fairly boring costume.

So with that in mind, and knowing he was created to be a standin for Black Lightning, added some blue into the costume. Also this fit with Juice from Justice League Unlimited.

Also can somebody explain what vulcan has to do with lightning or electricity?
