Marvel is bringing the Black Panther to TVs near you, directly ported from the popular comic book series. The primetime animated series will begin airing on BET early next year. The Black Panther has previously appeared in the direct-to-DVD animated feature Ultimate Avengers 2 back in 2006. The title character also appears in the Next Avengers: Heroes of Tomorrow as Azari, the son of Black Panther and Queen Storm. This time, however, BET is giving the popular hero his own series. It’s about time!
