According to Saturday Night Live alum Tracy Morgan, Stan Lee and Jack Kirby owe him one big apology. Appearing on The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon to promote his new TV series The Last O.G., the Emmy nominee "accused" the hugely successful Black Panther film of stealing an oh-so-similar creation of his own: The Black Bobcat.
After making the claim, Morgan promptly pulled out a cardboard standee of The Black Bobcat (which shockingly resembles Batman, albeit with Morgan's face overtop the cowl). Morgan even went on to describe his original creation's powers. “Oh he can pounce," Morgan said, "drinks a hell of a lot of milk, he can hear really good, and he sleeps twenty hours a day.”
Some of Black Bobcat's powers are a little more...specific. “He can hear things on porno that you can’t hear," Morgan said.
Take a look at Morgan's revelatory interview with Fallon below.
In theaters now, director Ryan Coogler’s Black Panther stars Chadwick Boseman as T’Challa/Black Panther, Michael B. Jordan as N’Jadaka/Erik “Killmonger” Stevens, Lupita Nyong’o as Nakia, Danai Gurira as Okoye, Forest Whitaker as Zuri and Andy Serkis as Ulysses Klaue.
