Contrary to the belief of some idiots on social media, Marvel’s Black Panther has nothing to do with the Black Panther Party. The first appearance of the Black Panther character in a comic book was in July of 1966, roughly five months before Bobby Seale and Huey Newton founded the Black Panther Party for Self Defense.

Still, let’s get this straight: what Ryan Coogler and company are bringing to the silver screen with Black Panther isn’t a reimagining of the Black Panther Party.
