Black Mantis is a Real Life SuperHero in Sacramento, CA.
A six-foot-two bug with a grudge against Nazis and people who abuse power.
Born in the Bay Area and raised in south Sac, poverty and injustice among America’s underrepresented was an everyday part of life. Several years of sitting frustrated on the notion of doing something to make a change combined with years of cosplay experience to create the Black Mantis persona.
