This comment was left on Cracked.com's list of "The 6 Worst Marvel Cartoons", but first, let's look at why they put the Black Panther cartoon on the list: "Black Panther" (2009)In 2004, Reginald Hudlin wrote the greatest, toughest, most action-packed Black Panther story of all time. This seemed nuts since his previous writing credits were the movie House Party. Five years later, the comic was adapted into a cartoon by BET and everything fell apart. Instead of animation, they made it a "motion comic" like the old '60s Marvel Superheroes show. In this style, the characters shift an arm or a leg for a few frames rather than "move." It might have still been okay with good voiceover, but every voice actor was so concerned with thickening up their fake "African" accent that they forgot to do things like "inflect" or "act." The final result was like a sleepy exchange student wiggling a comic book while they read it out loud. And I don't want to sound racist, but that's really annoying.
They barely move and they all talk like voice actors trying to passive aggressively get revenge on their agents, but other than that the characters are great!
Theme Song: The Black Panther music is awesome. Every time Black does anything, anything at all, an African choir goes crazy chanting his name. "T'Challa! T'Challa! T'Challa!" As an experiment, I named my dong T'Challa while I was watching this show, and I've been hard for almost two years.
Okay, I know all that didn't transfer over, but, here is the comment:
LOL, I just watched some Black Panther....Its actually that kind of BET well meaning racism. Like how the only people/ culture from Africa that has anything to offer....is a made up one. The Wakandans talk of every other nation in Africa as savages, let alone the Europeans who they spit on. Oh, and they have a cure for cancer, but screw telling anyone outside their kingdom.
The Wakandons are jerks, lol.
LOL, and their utopian society is xenophobic isolationist hereditary Absolute monarchy, which is at times decided by wrestling matches.
BET....more racist towards black people than the Klan
So what do you guys think? Does any of this hold any merit, or is this guy just being a whiny closet-bigot douche? He might have a point.
