m: impala

Impala had never appeared before this scene from 1991’s Captain America #389, and neither had Coal Tiger (although that name–‘60s shorthand for post-colonial African nations–was Stan Lee and Jack Kirby’s original name for the character who would become Black Panther, and would go on to appear in a few Black Panther-related contexts); Voortrekker had appeared once, in a Black Panther miniseries a few years earlier. I really love scenes like this that imply that there is vastly more superheroic action going on on Marvel’s world than we ever get to see, and probably scores of major players we’ve never seen on panel.
