Black Panther is a comic book originally named Black Leopard because Stan Lee didn’t want to associate it too closely with the terrorist organization of the same name.
Or political freedom fighters. Whatever. I wasn’t alive then. Fuck you.
He’s an overcompensating deal, as he was the “first black superhero” and I think he is thus treated with kid gloves. He’s super smart, super rich, a generous king, super good at fighting – basically perfect. His nation all dress in traditional African garb while also being the most technologically advanced country on earth (though they’ve mostly been hidden from the outside world so no one ever knew). I think whitey is afraid to give him flaws for fear of racism.
(Which is fair given that the original story called for his three weaknesses to be watermelon, fried chicken, and big white asses.)
Marvel already used the character in movies but now he gets his own feature film. This is despite the fact that his comic has never really sold well but whatever. They needed a little color to be added to the MCU and Black is the best color on account of it not cracking.
We’ve put up trailers for his flick before and do so once again because … we like to look active. That’s all. I, personally, need the illusion of an active website so as to give my life purpose. I’m a complicated man, I know. This is one that aired during Hick Christmas. Bye.
