Black Panther Pregaming, Part II

With four days until The Black Panther leaps into theatres, here’s a look at T’Challa’s first appearance, in Fastastic Four numbers 52 and 53, published in July and August, 1966. I was four at that time, so I didn’t experience this tale until way later (after discovering him in The Avengers numbers 57 and 58).

The clip is only a few minutes long but the celebration is sincere!
