Black Panther, Vol. 2 by Jack Kirby

Jack Kirbys Black Panther followed the cancellation of Jungle Action and the premature end to Don McGregor and Billy Grahams run on Black Panther in that Marvel comic book. Readers who followed the character from one book to the next must have suffered from whiplash.

Kirbys Black Panther is a super-scientific adventurer whose first multi-issue adventure involves a team-up with a diminuitive collector of weird antiquities named Mr. Little on a quest to find the second of two objects known as King Solomons Frogs. Theyve discovered one. It periodically pulls someone or something in from another time. Together, the two assume, the two frogs should form a controllable time machine. OK!

This is Jack Kirby in full-on lunacy mode. Its great lunacy, mile-a-second action, wild double-page spreads, and some of the oddest of Kirbys 1970s narratives. I mean, a time machine shaped like a frog (why?) is weird enough. But the time machine will eventually pull in a dangerous, hyper-evolved human from millions of years in the future. There will also be a hidden kingdom founded by seven samurai. There will be a half-brother of TChalla (that is, the Black Panther) who will seize control of the kingdom of Wakanda. There will be a Council of relatives of the Black Panther who will come together from across the world to battle that half-brother while TChalla is stuck in the samurai kingdom.

Oh, and a lost Black Panther will stumble across a science-fiction movie filming in the North African desert. It isnt Star Wars, but its clearly a nod to Star Wars. Kirbys work on a film adaptation of Roger Zelaznys Lord of Light would be used to help some of the American hostages out of Iran. remember Argo? They actually shot but didnt use a scene with Jack Kirby. Its true!

Whiplash, though, oh boy! This is rollicking science fantasy laced with absurdity. If you like more serious versions of Black Panther that address social and racial concerns, this is probably not your Black Panther. I love it. I love McGregors version too. I am entertained by multitudes!

Kirby, needless to say, had a boundless imagination. I actually read this not too long ago. He is easily one of the most interesting super heroes to ever come out of the Big Two. Little, the latter of whom is indeed a little person. Also, every time something surprises Mr.

Black Panther is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Black Panther's real name is T'Challa , king and protector of the fictional African nation of Wakanda. Along with possessing enhanced abilities achieved through ancient Wakandan rituals of drinking the essence of the heart-shaped herb, T'Challa also relies on his proficiency in science, rigorous physical training, hand-to-hand combat skills, and access to wealth and advanced Wakandan technology to combat his enemies. Beginning as an impersonator, Cole would later take on the moniker of White Tiger and become an ally to T'Challa. Black Panther has made numerous appearances in various television shows, animated films and video games.

The Panther has little interest in Little's endeavors until he mentions the fact that the Panther's grandfather Azzuri once possessed the item. Once inside, they discover that Queely lies dead in his chair, holding the Frog in his hand. Suddenly, an Aztec warrior jumps out and attacks them. The Black Panther fights him off and the warrior runs away from the house into the forests. Abner Little explains that King Solomon's Frog is a time machine. Queely apparently activated it to bring the Aztec warrior to this era.

Welcome to Comic Book Legends Revealed! This is the seven hundred and twenty-first installment where we examine comic book legends and whether they are true or false. Great deal, right? A bunch of people asked me to debunk it, but I saw a few articles back then that did the same and I didn't see the meme anymore after that, so I figured I'd leave it be. So okay, fair enough, if this can be of any help, I might as well get it out there as best as I can in case people search for this on Google hopefully they will find this post. Jack Kirby never had the Black Panther fight the Ku Klux Klan in either his appearances in Fantastic Four while Kirby was on the book or in his mids ongoing series that Kirby wrote and drew.
