    If Marvel passed on the Black panther mantle to a Caucasian, would it be accepted?

    If Marvel passed on the Black panther mantle to a Caucasian, would it be accepted, in terms of society?

    I ask myself if that would be accepted and would it be cancelled, would it be revered.


    What do you think?

    What would happen, being key here, I think people would flip out, I also think the same exact sort of racist would pop of the woodwork as those that would flip out of Superman were Asian.

    I think change can be good, personally as burnt out and having low expectation for these films I would actually applaud it. People have the right to their expectations, they do not have the the right to have them fulfilled.

    If the story makes sense and it's done well it shouldn't matter. The Black Panther isn't fucking real, it's a character, therefor the only thing that matters is the story and the production over all.

    I mean it could be good like maybe he picks up the mantle an does the same thing with it, progresses the story further in a deeper and also meaningful way.

    The old regime in this place pretty much gave the opening to turn this place into Stormfront 2.0 Those that came over never went away and still attempting it.

    Captain America's identity isn't intrinsically linked to his race or ethnicity. A white Caucasian male is not synonymous with America. Nor is America a representation of the "last bastion" of a continent ruined by colonialism.

    Wakanda and the Black Panther fill a different mythological role in the Marvel universe than America and Captain America do, so while the race of Black Panther matters, the race of Captain America doesn't.


    Nevertheless, Bucky is being set up in the MCU as White Wolf. In the comics White Wolf was the white adopted son of King Tchalla and a protector of Wakanda. Later he became villain. It's unlikely Bucky will become a villain, but he will fill the role of a white citizen in Wakanda, defending Wakanda.

    Given that black panther is tied directly into culture and blood line it wouldn’t work unless there started to be some mixed baby’s but then they would still be black.

    Have other people noticed these are TheramoreIsTheBomb threads?
    • The phrasing is the same.
    • The structure of the dumb questions are the same.
    • Ghosting their own polls, also the same.

    Wouldn't make sense since it's an African fictional country of... you know, Africans, that BP hails from.

    Plus I ain't a fan of altering the ethnicity of well established characters for 'reasons'.

    Which highlights the fundamental issue with racism. We never say that mix raced children are "half white".

    If you ain't white enough to pass white, you ain't white. Sometimes even passing white is not enough.

    I can't see them making that work story-wise. The person would have to be Wakandian, they would have to jump through hoops to somehow make that happen.

    Pretty much ya. The only way to actually pull off a white black panther wouldn’t even work as you’d have people on both sides saying there just black if they weren’t white passing and likely even if they were.

    Story-wise, it wouldn't make sense. The rule of the Black Panther belongs to Wakanda and its people. Tied to a bloodline of people. The closest chance for that is in the far future, a caucasian mix happens.

    There is a far-fetched chance that an alternate earth could have one, though.

    If they can bend the gender, race and even species of a North European God like Tor, which has deep roots in belief and Nordic culture then why not a African? Besides, there are white people living in Africa too.
