Trivia

In a last minute decision, the Juggernaut replaced the Rhino in the show. The Rhino was in the original comic book mini-series which made the scene of the Juggernaut vs a black rhino very strange in episode 5. See more »

Awesome...and too controversial for American TV?
10 February 2011 | by steven-222See all my reviews

This is the best superhero feature, animated or live-action, that I've seen in years. Though presented as six TV episodes, it's all one story...and what a story! A beautifully complex narrative of stories-within-stories ranges over vast time and space to convey the myth of Wakanda, the untouchable warrior kingdom of Africa, and its hereditary leader, the Black Panther, even as the present-day story steadily builds to a gripping final half, with Wakanda under attack by enemies on all sides. Along for this roller-coaster ride: Storm and the X-Men, Juggernaut, The Black Knight, Captain America, a scary Condoleezza-alike, and even President O himself.

The politics here will be controversial; this is an intelligent, funny, highly nuanced attack on imperialism of all stripes, from the White House to the Vatican. (So far as I can tell, although this was produced by BET/Viacom, it never seems to have actually aired on BET, and I'm betting the reason is the politics. I'd love to know the full story about this.)

The artwork is terrific, and the presentation is somewhere between regular animation and a highly evolved motion comic. I found the effect always interesting, sometimes awesome.

This movie kept me on the edge of my seat every minute. Superb!
