Panther, by a longshot. Comic's first and best black character.

How can you say that though? Both are so similar.

Similar on the outside because they are both black geniuses who design a lot of tech. I think once you get past that, they start becoming quite different.

One's a king who has had his life defined by being responsible for his kingdom while the other was more or less a good Samaritan who wanted to help those he could. And one's African, and the other is an African American :)

Black Panther, but I do like Steel so it's close! Really hate when he doesn't have a mask/goggles on both eyes in the New 52, otherwise his redesign is pretty cool

Anyone who voted Steel needs a slap on the head and a copy of Priest's Black Panther run.

Though Steel is pretty fly - I liked him in JLA.

I like Steel but BP is way more interesting

Steel seems like the underdog here. Sweet. Always loved the underdogs.

arrrrgggggh can't decide! I guess I would have to say BP.

does anyone know if old steel comics are worth anything because I have 2 of them and there just as steel started out as a character

Well Black Panther isn't as overlooked as Steel, he pretty is the star of a current team ongoing and has several more ongoings than Steel.

this is almost spite...its clearly black panther

hes not that overlooked, hes popular in his own right witrhout a (of underrated) disclaimer.

basically said, Black Panther p;lays with the big boys (the popular characters) and Steel doesn't really, he's always second banana.

I disagree. He may not always have been a prominent figure, but that's hardly the same thing as overlooked.
