    Too baby they made him bland as Hell in the movie, yet they improved Blade in the movie vs the comic version.

    Yeah, I remember that Black Panther story when he took on a sorta KKK copy. It was quite 'out there' at the time I thought.

    Alex Ross...I dont get it... This gentleman is such a Genius! His words,
    his wisdom, his view over these Characters, his knowledge, his
    experience!!! WHY are People not giving him the chance of being the Head
    of the creative team on the DC Universe!! He would put so much Magic on
    any (Comic)Story, Movie or Game! His mixture of the Past History of
    Comics and the Modern times is unique! He is such a talent! Such an
    inspiration to Me! The Love and importance he gives these Characters is
    simply Magical! His symbolic elements in his Paintings are frighteningly
    beautiful! PLEASE anyone! Give this Man more Power over Creative
    processes on DC!!!

    Great commentary on Black Panther. I didn't know anything about the character before the movie came out. Always was a Batman guy. Very cool talk on the character. Thanks for sharing!

    I agree that Black Panther is a terrific character. But if Spider Man can be black (and yes of course I know about Miles Morales, and he's not a bad character), then can Black Panther be East Asian? :\ I think the race and gender bending of recent years among Marvel Comics mainstays has been putting politics and social progress ahead of telling a great story. And it's sad. This isn't how you fix racism and sexism in the real world. That's how you alienate your audience with smarmy self-righteousness. If you think there should be more representation, make more great black characters like BP, like Bishop, like Storm, like Falcon, like Blade, like Sunspot, like Power Man (Luke Cage), etc. etc. etc., or use the ones you already have to make terrific stories.

      HetLedie If you just used a fraction of a brain cell and stop being such a jackass you would realize he was using a “East Asian black panther” as an example to back up his point. He’s not literally saying black panther should be East Asian.

      HetLedie Did you actually read the comment?

    • Mike Noir
      Mike Noir 9 bulan yang lalu

      Dan D He can be an East Asian IF he's a legacy character with an entirely different origin and unconnected to BP. Obviously Asians aren't born in Wakanda because only indigenous Africans from the various Wakandan tribes are born there

      Which OP? And also not one of these hashtags lead me to a video that was even close to funny. Just take the L dude.

    • Dan D
      Dan D 9 bulan yang lalu

      I wasn't actually arguing for a non-Wakandan Panther, Ledie, but I suggested it in the service of a serious point. Do they teach reading comprehension where you're from? I'm really asking. Look up the OP, read the last sentences again and again. And then, there could be some irony in them thar _hashtags._ The ":P" _might_ have been a clue.

    Alex Ross is a legend when it comes to art, I first discovered him when I saw his take on the Sam Raimi Spiderman suit. The man has a godly imagination and art skills to bring them to life.

    If DC was savvy they would have him hired for costume design and theatrical posters for the DC Movies. No cut and paste copy of MCU.

    • Lawrence Rinehart
      Lawrence Rinehart 10 bulan yang lalu +1

      Not knocking Marvel, but DC characters are more classical hero archetypes that should have that distinction.

    I know this phrase is constantly used but he is the Norman Rockwell of Comics. He makes the characters and their worlds live and breathe. A great reverence of the collective history and has added a lot himself.

    He's right about comics teaching you something. My first introduction to Panther was FF # 119... Panther trapped in apartheid South Africa and Ben & Johnny going to kick ass and free him ! This was about 1976, I'm 8yrs old. I knew NOTHING about shit like that at the time. Mind blowing!!

      The creation of the Black Panther is how you create diversity in comics! Not the BS Marvel has been doing the last 10 years by messing with already established characters like Thor (gender change), Captain America (race). Create new characters and DEVELOPE them!! #my2cents

    The arrogance of whites to automatically assume any and all characters, masked or otherwise are white, too. White privilege. I'd be interested to know how his mother "knew" the Spiderman was black.

      Omni Viewer Well, as a Black man, i agree. Yeah, sure i got a kick out of a mostly Black cast (it WASN'T an all black cast) but, as a comic reader of 40 yrs i enjoyed it for what it really was. A great comic movie. And you're absolutely correct. The amount of bullshit i saw on ALL SORTS if sites... the Black Christian point of view... conservative... muslim... it was ----- BIZARRE. just freakin bizarre. And stomach turning. It reeked, snd was, bandwagoners trying to latch on for whatever their fancy was.
