Black Panther’s comic book storyline “The Man Without Fear” was published in 2011 — but it couldn’t be more relevant to today’s political climate. In the comics, T’Challa acquires forged immigration papers and assumes a new identity, “Mr. Okonkwo,” an immigrant from the Democratic Republic of Congo who owns a small diner in New York City. He does this to supplant Daredevil’s role as the protector of the neighborhood known as Hell’s Kitchen.
So an undocumented Black immigrant superhero really breaks the mold, in 2011 — a year before the DACA program was announced.
