Watch: We honor Spectrum for Black History Month's 28 Days of Heroes

Today we're honoring Spectrum as part of Black History Month's 28 Days of Heroes.

Spectrum was created by writer Roger Stern and artist John Romita Jr. Over the years, she's been known as everything from Captain Marvel to Photon to Pulsar -- but no matter the moniker, Monica Rambeau always been a hero. She even led the Avengers for a while, and (don't forget!) revolutionized sleeve wear back in the 1980s. Nowadays, she's kicking around as a key member of the Ultimates in the comic realm.
