Movie Info

A brilliant African-American scientist transforms a black militant into a super human hero with incredible strength and fantastic mental abilities after moving into an affluent white neighborhood and becoming the victim of racism. All Dr. Kenneth Kincade wanted was to live in a nice neighborhood where his children would be safe and his family could be happy. Unfortunately his bigoted neighbors had other plans. When Dr. Kincade's family is greeted with threats and vandalism, Black Front or Unity leader John Abar (Toblar Mayo) steps in to protect them from the swelling tide of intolerance. Thanks to Abar, Dr. Kincade is able to resume his research into a serum designed to make ordinary men invincible. Later, when racial tensions turn deadly, Dr. Kincade uses the serum on Abar and creates a black superman whose might and mental abilities strike fear into the hearts of intolerant racists everywhere.

Audience Reviews for Abar, the First Black Superman

An awesomely bad movie. Bad, and awesome, a Bad-Awesome sandwich. It might be one of the great fun-bad movies except that they take way too long to get to Abar getting his powers. Once it does it almost turns into a micro-budget blaxploitation version of El Topo!
