"Black Panther" (aka T'Challa) was the first black superhero in mainstream comic-book history and remains one of the most prolific. He has long been one of the more popular members of Marvel's "Mightiest Heroes," the Avengers. But Marvel's various attempts to give the character his own title have ultimately failed - and one of the major reasons is that the character has never seemed integral to the Marvel Universe the way characters like Captain America and Spider-Man are. Until now. Thanks to writer Reggie Hudlin (director and writer of the movie "House Party")

At the press event a few weeks ago heralding Civil War , Marvel Studios exec Kevin Feige talked Black Panther. "(Directors) Joe and Anthony Russo and our screenwriters thought it would be very valuable to have somebody that was (new) and wasn't quite as invested (in the conflict)," Feige said. "We wanted somebody who, perhaps, was invested, but didn't have allegiance to any one side-who was essentially in it for very personal reasons, himself. "We knew we wanted to make a 'Black Panther' movie at some point, but at that time we weren't exactly sure when it would be," Feige continued.

It was a blood bath that, through a quirk in timing, is often forgotten when prison riots are recalled. Aug. 21, 1971. Six killed at San Quentin Prison in Northern California. Dead were three guards and three prisoners, including the nation's best-known inmate at the time, Black Panther and prison revolutionary George Jackson. But three weeks later, at a prison in a small town in New York State, the death toll was much higher - 32 prisoners and 11 hostages. A four-day siege by inmates ended when state troopers and police stormed the Attica State Correctional Facility.

Are Black Panthers roaming the woods of Pennsylvania? Although many law enforcement agencies apparently didn't take the thought seriously, the state Game Commission did. A memo dated May 1 that the commission faxed to its wildlife conservation officers warned them of possible clashes with members of the long-defunct black militant organization in the aftermath of the Rodney King jury verdict that sparked the Los Angeles riots. While it might be hard to picture followers of the late Huey P. Newton confronting game wardens in rural Forest County, state game officials said they felt it was better to be safe than sorry.

Though it didn't even happen on Friday the 13th, landscaper Thomas Wall is still spooked by the black cat that crossed his path the other day. The 24-year-old resident of Holland in Bucks County is not superstitious and wouldn't have blinked an eye except for the size of what he says he saw. "It was all black, three feet high and five feet long. " What was it? In a telephone interview two days after the unsettling incident, Wall insisted that he saw a "black panther" in Pennypack Park.

On the eve of the 50th anniversary of the Black Panther Party, founded in 1966, comes a new documentary to recount the movement's lively history. While children of the '60s and '70s may find much that is familiar in Black Panthers: Vanguard of the Revolution , most will also find something to discover in the film, assembled by veteran PBS documentarian Stanley Nelson. He uses vintage photos and music to place the movie in time, and finds insiders and eyewitnesses to explain the unique excitement created by the Panther "brand" - from the outset, so much more ferocious than the mainstream Civil Rights movement.

THERE'S NOTHING I would like better than for cop-killer Mumia Abu-Jamal to shut his lying, mellifluous mouth. Infuriatingly, he won't. But is passing a so-called "Muzzle Mumia Law" the right remedy? Coming in response to France's favorite inmate addressing-on-tape some 20 dimwits getting degrees from Mumia's alma mater, Vermont's Goddard College, the Pennsylvania Legislature passed a bill allowing crime victims to sue to prevent inmates from making public statements causing "mental anguish.

She said the rapper kicked open the bedroom door and kicked her, causing injury.
