    I would say the Black Panther is Marvel's Aquaman. I look beyond the surface stuff like being aquatic. T'Challa is king of a mighty nation that is usually at peace with other nations and he is also an Avenger and often there is tension between these two roles. Arthur is king of a mighty nation that is usually at peace with the surface world and he is also a member of the Justice League and often there is tension between these two roles.


If you say so. After thinking it over for a day or so, I have come to the conclusion that the Panther isn't Marvels Batman, but that's just because Marvel doesn't have a Batman.


I'm thinking of this comparison as more of a "men behind the curtain" thing. To the outside world, Batman and Iron Man operate in completely different ways. Batman uses mystery and stealth more than most others; Iron Man uses cutting edge high tech five or ten times as much as Batman.

But behind the curtain, within and amoung their respective teams, Bruce Wayne and Tony Stark operate in very similar ways. This, and the fact that when Tony began his own heroic journey, the fact that he was very close to what Bruce pretended to the world at large the sort of person "Bruce Wayne" was, is why I call Tony Marvel's Bruce Wayne
