some of Spider-Man villains fit more The Black Panther

#1 Posted by funckygarcon (266 posts) - - Show Bio

Africa is home to scorpions, rhinos and vultures. Don't u think those 3 Spider-Man villains would serve better as The Black Panther's enemies rather than Spidey's? After all, those animals don't even live in cities and would fit better in Africa where Black Panther rules. And now that i think about it, why not add Kraven the hunter too? Do u know any spider hunters? I don't, panthers however are hunted for their fur. I would even think about making him Black Panther's archenemy as he would seek to hunt him all the time. don't u think it all makes sense?

Kraven could fit as a Black Panther villain. As for Scorpion, Rhino, and Vulture, no.

Scorpion, Rhino, and Vulture are all SILLY, and also get their powers from city tech rather than animal spirits or any fancy Wakandan anything. I do agree that Kraven would be a good fit though.

Just because Rhino, Gargan, and Vulture are all based on animals that reside in Africa, doesn't mean they would make a good villain for BP. Spider-Man and Black Panther are two different characters. The way Spider-Man goes about dealing with his villains, would be different from how BP would deal with them.

Read JMS' run on the Amazing Spider-Man and it will all make sense

@Joygirl: u're right, but the BP uses high tech gadgets too. so they're pretty much even.

#11 Posted by funckygarcon (266 posts) - - Show Bio

@_slim_: the issue is not dealing with them. it's about how i see that they fit more in their original countries. leave it to BP

@funckygarcon: They don't fit. Kraven is the only that would make sense.

in that case Batman should hang out in the woods because bat usually don't hang out in cities, Sandman should only fight beach and dessert related heroes,and Unicorn shouldn't exist(Actually I support that one cause that guy is ridiculous)

BP has battled many of Spider-Man's villains. They actually fit each other quite well. I don't think they should be exclusively BP villains. But, the interaction between T'Challa and SM's rogue's has fit well.

I think Kraven is a good fit for a lot of heroes. I think he's always been limited and underrated. But then again, it's hard to be successful when you're fighting Spider-Man next to guys like Venom or Morlun. Personally, I'd love to see him as a Black Panther villain, as well as a villain for Gambit, Daredevil, or Luke Cage. 
 
As for the others, I'd like to see them try to take on BP. He really doesn't have many great villains outside of Klaw or Man-Ape.  (unless there are new villains that I'm unaware of)
 
Spider-Man villains in general should branch out and fight other characters. I feel like they've always been under-utilized.

T'Challa has fought (and defeated) both Kravens (Alyosha and Sergei).

@Mega_spidey01: Actually Sabertooth started out as an Ironfist villain so that's not too much of a stretch

Scorpions live in cities. Maybe not NYC, but certainly in the southwest cities.

On topic, all three of them could make decent Black Panther villains. See no reason why any villain should be exclusively the antagonist of one hero. As long as the villain is powerful/dangerous enough to pose a legitimate threat, but not so much of one that they would stomp on the hero, then they could work. Most of Spider-Man's rogues would fall within that range for Black Panther.

@Gambit1024: i've always thought that Kraven doesn't fit Spidey and he isn't a a heavy or serious adversary. in brief, he's not in Spider-man's league. he would fit better as a Black Panther Villain.

#24 Posted by funckygarcon (266 posts) - - Show Bio

@Moonchilde: yes, i think Spidey's villains should tangle with various super heroes, and Black Panther would be just perfect for them

I'd like to see Morbius as a Black Panther villian.

Well Morlun briefly was a BP villain.
