The Black Panther: Ta-Nehisi Coates New Marvel Comic
By Hunter Wallace
“Ta-Nehisi Coates can be identified in many ways: as a national correspondent for The Atlantic, as an author and, as of this month, as a nominee for the National Book Award’s nonfiction prize. But Mr. Coates also has a not-so-secret identity, as evidenced by some of his Atlantic blog posts and his Twitter feed: Marvel Comics superfan.
So it seems only natural that Marvel has asked Mr. Coates to take on a new Black Panther series set to begin next spring. Writing for that comics publisher is a childhood dream that, despite the seeming incongruity, came about thanks to his day job. “The Atlantic is a pretty diverse place in terms of interest, but there are no comics nerds,” besides himself, Mr. Coates said in an interview. …”
So, the “Black Panther.”
I mean … at this point, why not? Captain America is black. The Incredible Hulk is Korean. Thor is a woman. Ms. Marvel is a teenage Muslim. Oh, and the Green Lantern is gay. SJWs have taken over the comic book world and recreated it in their own image. This has been going for a few years now.
Rest assured, we will never see Matvel unveil “The Klansman” to great applause from The New York Times. In the inverted world of Ta-Nehisi Coates, blacks are perpetually held down by systemic/institutional racism, and “white privilege,” and yet he is simultaneously celebrated by the cultural establishment and is given his own comic book as a platform to indulge his racial fantasies.
Isn’t it amazing how that works?
