Netflix’s ‘Supacell’ Channels Black Avenger-Like Energy in Exciting Sci-Fi Series! Wednesday 26 June, 2024

In the exciting new Netflix series “Supacell” by Rapman, we meet five regular Black South Londoners who find themselves with extraordinary superpowers. While the thrill of having supernatural abilities and the enchantment of science fiction are at the forefront, the show also touches on important issues that disproportionately impact the Black community, such as human trafficking, intense surveillance, widespread global anti-Blackness, and exploitative medical practices.

In December 2020, Black individuals came together on social media, playfully imagining what it would be like to have superpowers when the rare alignment of Saturn and Jupiter occurred. Black Twitter was buzzing with excitement, with many suggesting that the cosmic event might unlock incredible abilities for Black people. Although it was all in good fun, the memes, tweets, and TikTok videos brought joy to many. However, as “Supacell” hints, for a community that has faced continuous victimization and discrimination, the emergence of superhuman capabilities among Black individuals could bring about a host of complex challenges.

Written and directed by Rapman, the pilot episode of “Supacell” takes its time introducing us to the characters. We meet Michael (played by Tosin Cole), a parcel delivery driver deeply in love with Dionne (portrayed by Adelayo Adedayo) and facing the challenge of supporting his mother in her battle with sickle cell disease. The cast also includes nurse Sabrina (Nadine Mills), Rodney (Calvin Demba) trying to make ends meet as a low-level weed dealer, ex-con Andre (Eric Kofi-Abrefa) striving to rebuild his life and connect with his son, and Tazer (Josh Tedeku) navigating a dangerous gang rivalry.

During a moment of joy, Michael discovers a shocking ability: his eyes glow yellow, and he can teleport, among other powers.

At the core of “Supacell” lies the heartwarming relationship between Michael and Dionne. The rarity of showcasing the depth and beauty of Black love on screen makes witnessing a couple who have grown together from their teenage years into adulthood truly captivating. The representation of Black love, alongside Black superheroes in a superhero series, is a refreshing rarity.

The series hints that these superpowers may stem from a unique genetic trait typically found in Black individuals, turning a genetic characteristic into a superpower. This twist on genetic inheritance promises to set “Supacell” apart in the realm of sci-fi series.
