Anthony Mackie being the first black superhero (and making Bill O’Reilly uncomfortable) on Jimmy Fallon (x)
I am so happy that Anthony Mackie is a person that exists.
For anyone who’s going: “But what about Storm/Hancock/Frozone/War Machine etc etc?”: they’re referring to the fact that the character Falcon was the first African-American superhero* created (debuted in Captain America #177 in 1969). If you’ve watched the clip, you’ll notice that Mackie corrects Jimmy Fallon when he says first black superhero. This is because the first black superhero was Black Panther - debuted in Fantastic Four #52 in 1966 - whom lives in the fictive African country Wakanda, and is thus not a citizen of the USA.
(* = the word “superhero” is usually not used for hero characters that pre-date Superman, nor actually very often used outside the mainstream comic book companies aka DC Comics and Marvel Comics. This is why such characters as The Phantom, created in 1936 aka 2 years before Superman, and whom wears spandex and a mask and punches evil guys in the face, is not generally dubbed a super hero. Anyway, the point of this asterisk is that I have no idea how many fictional, non-“super” hero characters there were of African decent before 1966)
i know gifsets lack a significant amount of context. but these gifsets of anthony mackie in press interviews lead me to believe that anthony mackie is perfect.
i mean for fuck’s sake. he’s taunting bill o’reilly.
that’s pretty perfect in my book.

Fun Fact of the Day: The “L,I,G” letters on those wooden blocks stand for “Let It Go” and were borrowed from Jimmy’s daughter, Winnie! - Marina
Duh? Did anybody think it stood for something else? lol
Maybe some people didn’t realize it stood for anything at all, seeing as they’re toy blocks spelling out something that (I’m fairly certain) isn’t a word.
