Black Panther

F°ŖṣÐŘØŴ Marley the Martian
For some reason (probably because he’s black), Marvel character Black Panther has never quite gotten his due. Since being created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby and debuting in a 1966 issue of Fantastic Four, he’s never achieved the marquee status of his peers, despite being the first major black superhero. Wesley Snipes tried for 15 years to turn the character into a movie, but all we got is three Blade movies instead.

Well now, BET executive Reginald Hudlin—who also started writing the Black Panther comic for Marvel in 2005—is bringing the icon to the small screen. In early 2009, a prime-time animated Black Panther series will debut on the BET network. And if the series is a success, you can bet the live-action movie (which John Singleton was recently rumored to be directing) won’t be far behind.
