Batman & Ice-T Collaboration—and no one recognizes the greatness?!

In season 2, episode 1 of Batman Beyond, hip hop icon and Law & Order: SVU veteran Ice-T lends his unmistakable gravely voice to one of the villainously spliced bad guys—a human and ram hybrid—and it’s not even mentioned in the episode description. Come on y’all—there is a serious underrepresentation of people of color in the super hero genre—both in terms of characters and the people behind those characters—and Batman Beyond as a series is one of the few series that actually addresses this disparity. But to not even give Ice-T a shout out on this page, when Ice T is definitely way more famous than Batman Beyond ever was, is just, well, to borrow one of Ice’s favorite words, “corny.”
