The original series was concerned with the ongoing adventures of a descendent of J.E.B. Stuart and his tank crew, guided and protected by the ghost of the Confederate calvary general from a hundred years earlier. The 2009 version from DC Comics' instead addresses the obvious possibility: what if Stuart had black descendents and the spectre of the Confederate was obligated to protect and nurture him (and much to the chagrin of the recipient)? Set during the Iraq War, the story is an interesting overview of racial politics typically left alone in DC Comics' books.
