I've just posted my review of ABAR: The First Black Superman (1977). This blaxploitation film is unlike any other you've seen as it puts its main character in the role of Superman, more or less  BounceGiggle

Have any of you seen this one?

I have.  The first half of the movie is more of a call to action film.  An African-American family moves into a new neighborhood and immediately encounters discrimination from many of the other (Caucasian) neighbors.  Abar is the principled man who, along with a group of friends, comes to support the family and defend them if needed.  If I remember correctly, he is wounded and the doctor/scientist who is the father in the family gives him an experimental drug that gives him powers.  Not just super strength either, he gains the ability to change reality.  It's all done on a small budget, so it's a bit hard to follow exactly how and what Abar is doing.  The last ten minutes or so are strange, almost as if the writer was wishing he could give someone the power to cure certain ills of society.

    Earth is visited by a GIANT ANTIMATTER SPACE BUZZARD! Gawk at the amazingly bad bird puppet, or chuckle over the silly dialog. This is one of the greatest b-movies ever made.

    Lesson Learned:
    • Osmosis: os·mo·sis (oz-mo'sis, os-) n., 1. When a bird eats something.
