without even thinking. Americans have issued an all white superhero rule. however mantis didn't abide by that rule. i think it's great. mantis was one of those show that had the hypnotic trance in it .it should come back and believe you me .it will get the audience it needs for mantis is a miraculous turn around for Hollywood producers or networks. beautifully orchestrated.one of the things that made mantis a masterpiece is that the cover up of the identities.think about all the superheroes you know. all of them no doubt has a startling resemblance to their normal counterpart but mantis however Dr. miles was on a wheel chair with a critical disease that prohibits him to walk. the mantis however walks and runs just like any other person. the mantis secret hideout is far away from Dr. miles public house so no one guessed that the two exist in the same body
