Black Panther is coming out as a premium format figure by Sideshow. T’Challa, his “human” name, must be happy to be turned into a premium.
Did you know Black Panther was the first black superhero in comics in all of the US? He was here first than the likes of Black Lightning, Falcon, Luke Cage, John Stewart and Tyroc just to name a few of the earlier black superheroes.
Black Panther is one of my favorite dudes in the Marvel universe, not because of his power, because he’s not really powerful or a really important character but because he looks cool. And actually, him not having a big role in the Avengers stories and being kind of the underdog sometimes makes me like him even more. Maybe it’s the whole looks like a ninja thing.
Black Panther was created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and he first showed up in the 52th edition of Fantastic Four in 1966. Now he’s turned into a premium figure (Sideshow calls it a figure, when it’s a statue but whatever): http://actionfiguresbuff-jon.com/sideshow/premiumformat/blackpanther
