Ed's Notes:  So now I'm going to wallow in an incredible amount of hypocrisy here, after decrying the use of racial stereotypes by DC to flesh out previous characters, and ask if it was an intentional aversion of an otherwise racist trope to have the only Black Guy on the team (or at least his clone) be the one that's always wearing Scuba Gear?! (Yes, "Blacks can't swim" is an utterly racist stereotype, born directly from past policies of racial discrimination: They weren't allowed into public pool and beaches where whites kids got to swim.) THAT SAID... What's DC's motivation here? Or am I reading to much into it? (I'm sorry... MacGuire and Gabrielli are just.... bad. So I HAVE to ask.) And in case anyone reading this wants to suggest I'm just being too much the SJW here... Of all five people cloned for the Newsboy Legion, they spotted the Black Guy 5 fewer Hero Points. Yeah, Really.

Dr. Johnson served as the DNA source for "Flip," his clone and a member of the Newsboy Legion.
