Fear Itself is just getting started, but Marvel's already teasing what could be in store for T'Challa, the Black Panther with a classified dossier on an "American Panther." Francesco Francavilla's awesome art aside, this particular take on the character could prove polarizing. Transforming a proud African king (even if he's currently protecting Hell's Kitchen for Matt Murdock after essentially destroying Wakanda's most prominent natural resource) into a kind of Captain America supplement might not send the best message about forging one's own identity. Of course, there's every likelihood that this "American Panther" isn't even T'Challa! Fear Itself is reframing all kinds of heroes and villains with new looks and weapons, after all.
