James chose to draw Black Panther after seeing the Disney Lion King FDC. When I asked him which character he preferred to draw James responded the Beast. The closest FDC I had featured a hamster stamp, to which James asked to look at the available covers to choose from. I like the choice of Black Panther and Lion King....  Black panther  first appeared in Marvel Comics Fantastic Four #52 (1966), created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby, as the first black superhero. Black Panther would eventually join the Avengers in 1968. Black Panther would gain his own title in 1977 and would continue with various  series...
