Hey, guys! It’s has been some time since the last post. Hope you have a wonderful New Year’s Eve and a fantastic 2018 start. I wanted to talk about one of the most significant successes in the seventh art: Black Panther. If you haven’t seen the movie, I’ll start giving you some idea about this Marvel story. The legacy of this comic is rich. Black Panther was the first-ever black superhero in comics, and it’s considered (by far) the most famous black hero of all time.
The Black Panther was created in 1966 and appeared in the pages of Marvel comics. His real name is T’Challa, and he rules as a king in Wakanda. The mantle that he possesses is hereditary, and he has to pass a series of trials to earn the title officially. The Black Panther own the throne after the death of his father, T’Chaka. He was murdered by a man who wants to take the resources of Wakanda and we can appreciate in the movie as Ulysses Klaue. On the contrary, in the movie world, T’Chaka was killed in “Captain America: Civil War”; apparently, never is the same as the original writing.
The Panther, only appeared once before this one and was in the Captain America. So, if you see that film, you may have a big idea about what how this history began. The director of the movie, Ryan Coogler’s has done an incredible job making a film that has something relevant to say, and it’s different from the others Marvel adaptations.
Now, let’s give you some idea about Black Panther’s powers. He got his superhuman skills due to a Wakandan plant that allowances improved abilities and linked him spiritually with the God Panther: Bast. These fantastic powers allowed him to fight on an equal level that others great soldiers like Captain America. Of course, his combat proficiency and intelligent are unique. He uses a suit that is made of vibranium weave which allows to absorbs the kinetic force of high impacts like bullets. Also, he can use that force and release it to attack back.
Another important advantage of the suit is that has cloaking technology that allows him to disappear and appear at will. The uniform has more powers, but I’ll not tell you all of them. The thing is, he’s a great hero with superhuman senses and a genius intellect that could be your favorite hero so far. I know, maybe I exaggerate, but it can be. You have to see it.
Every movie has diverse opinions, is up to you to see it and make your thoughts about it. I believe that is a great film and its different from the prior ones. Also, the film has great actors that recreate the characters outstandingly. Each new Marvel movie is a new chance for change the formula and creates something refreshing and extraordinary. Coogler, without any doubt, tried to do a better film with this one, bringing not only a “new” hero but also, more meaning and more profound messages.
