We got the Reverend on Capitol Hill Tuesday and wanted to get his take on the legendary Marvel Universe creator’s death. TMZ broke the story … Stan died Monday morning after he was rushed to the hospital. He was 95.
Al says Stan wasn’t late to the game when it came to inclusion in Hollywood. Stan — no stranger to tackling politically sensitive issues in his comic books — created the Black Panther character in 1966, the first black superhero.
That, Al says, was highly impactful in shaping the mind of kids back in the day. He says it’s a hell of an accomplishment, and you’d be hard-pressed to disagree.
