When Marvel writer and proofreader Don McGregor first came onto the publisher’s Jungle Action , a series set primarily in Africa, he noted that a majority of its stories featured white heroes. McGregor was responsible for turning the series into a vehicle for the Black Panther, and in issue #19 McGregor made a bold statement by having the African hero do battle with the American Ku Klux Klan. In Panther vs. The Klan, the Black Panther journeys to Georgia to investigate the mysterious death of Angela Lynne. Angela was the sister of his then-girlfriend Monica, a black woman who was in the process of investigating a local branch of what seemed to be the Ku Klux Klan.
