T’Challa is the King of the fictional African nation of Wakanda and he is the Black Panther, a Marvel superhero. We’ve been fans of Black Panther since he debuted in Fantastic Four issue No. 52 in July 1966.
The Black Panther movie opened Friday and is already the top-grossing film in History. At the Strangest Adventures we welcome this news.
He originally was going to be named Coal Tiger and the name Coal Tiger, as it turned out, was more relevant to Africa in the 1960’s than the name Black Panther!
Yes that is what Coal Tiger looks like
By 1977 Black Panther had his own comic book title. It’s worth noting that in issue 5 Panther fights the racist menace the White Rhino.
By the end of the issue he teams up with Luke Cage, Falcon, and even the Black Musketeers to stop the White Rhino from taking over New York City; the earth shattering conclusion was in issue 6.
At the Strangest Adventures we wish Black Panther well and hope to view his documented adventures as soon as the lines get shorter!
