Now a resident of the city of Los Angeles, Tinsley has certainly knocked a home run out of the park with his latest creation. The Urban Superhero DangerMan treads where no other superhero has dared to show his cape. From the East Coast to the West Coast, from Watts to Harlem, the Urban Superhero with the Heart of Gold carries a message of hope for the future for children in urban America. Tinsley has a dream that one day violence and ignorance will cease to stalk our communities. A dream that the drug man and the gun man will one day be a thing of the past.

The Urban Superhero franchise will include books, hip hop music, a clothing line, toys, animation, a national urban literacy tour, home-video releases, and much more.
