The death of Stan Lee hit many Marvel fans from all over the world. He was revolutionary in writing and exploring topics that many Americans weren’t interested in discussing, like racism and bigotry. The creation of X-Men was an allegory to the civil rights movement and Lee created the first black superheroes as activism against racism. While Lee’s passing was the ending of a great man, his creations live on, especially the (still!) mega-successful Black Panther.
Last week, POP by Footlocker launched a brand new Black Panther collab collection courtesy of Marvel Comics and 2Pac’s estate.
The collection is affordably priced, with short and long-sleeved tees and hoodies ranging from $25-$50. The clothing has a mix of iconic Wakanda and Tupac imagery.
“The intersection of music and Black Panther is such a vital part of that property,” Paul Gitter, SVP of Marvel Licensing, told Complex. “so it is fantastic to co-brand with an influential artist like 2Pac on a new collection of Marvel apparel.”
