I didn't read this book but the person who wrote it is clueless. I read the part about Supreme Magnetic the one this goofy guy calls "Supreme Magneto" and says Supreme called himself this because of comic books. Well if he had done research he would have known that Supreme Magnetic was a member of the 5% nation of Gods and Earths. Members take on attributes such as Supreme, Divine, True, Born etc. For example the rap group the supreme team were five percenters (as they are called). So was Supreme from the Jamaican Queens Supreme Team. The name Supreme in NYC back then was as common as Michael or Joe back then. The five percent nation had members in the thousands in those days. I should add that that group is not a gang nor do they promote breaking the law. However some of its members did involve themselves in illegal activities against the teachings of the Five Percent Nation of Gods and Earths.
