Marvel Legends Vintage 6" Black Panther Figure Video Review & Image Gallery

Recommended Posts

I have no real understanding of that quote without reading a few issues before to get some perspective. As others have said before Panther wasnt  hiding his identity from fellow heroes.. as both the Avengers and FF are in Wakanda and hanging out unmasked.. must have been an arc that reflected the times.. but again I didn’t have the time to reread a years worth of comics to get the full story..that quote just gives me reason to believe he was hiding his identity as a black guyfrom the general public

No, I had not heard of the Black Marvel story until you wrote your response.

after yourself and Atlantis responded I checked my EpicCollection. In Avengers #74 Panther is captured by the Sons of The Serpent. Their plan is to reveal that Panther is a black guy to destabilize race relations in America. A direct quote from T’Challa : “ The Serpents want to cause a civil war.. to set black against white! And what better way to reveal that the Panther..who is also an Avenger.. is both black and a marauder”

so he must have been hiding his identity for some reason other than a one off story. 

And in a real Scooby Doo moment the Serpents unmask a fake Panther who is black but isn’t Tchalla, Who later in this issue gets unmasked again by the real Panther to reveal a white guy under a black guy mask under a Panther mask... as I said strange times haha

Wow. That almost makes the Spider-Man thing make sense.

And actually @watanabefans article explains the whole hiding his race thing. It’s a quick read if anyone is curious and it is also from the Avengers comic I was talking about..haha now ask me when my wife’s birthdate is...  my useless knowledge knows no bounds

All this talk about Black heroes hiding their identity, reminds me that we still need a Blue Marvel figure

I don't know if we exactly NEED it, other than NEEDING any character that's not a Spider or Deadpool variant, but I'd sure love them to make one.

I'd really like a Blue Marvel figure, too.

That would be a great buy. If its possible for a retcon character to have a "classic" look, I prefer his first one over the "modern" flak vest thing he's been wearing.

I think this outfit looks just so generic superhero though, the newer incarnation of his suit gives him some personality, I doubt Hasbro would do this version (at all), and the Flack vest BM is what we will get, and I'd be happy with it, but it could be a possibility we get this

which I'd way rather have the flack vest version, but I mean seriously if we do get a Blue Marvel (we will this year I bet), we really need Anti-Man as well.

Right, but he was supposed to have a "retro", generic superhero look, because that was the era he initially came from. Even the name is a call back to older generations. But either way, they should include different heads.

Yes Indeed, but I just like his newer costume with the vest better, and I think when Hasbro does him they will give us that version, I mean I'd buy any Blue Marvel they gave us, I wouldn't complain, generic or not I couldn't pretend I wouldn;t.
