White Tiger and Bronze Tiger


These are two characters that deserve wider recognition, and I'd love to see them branch out into live action.  Bronze Tiger did show up on a couple of episodes of Arrow a few years back, but I'd really like to see the character added to the roster of the Suicide Squad sequel (if that film still ends up getting made).  White Tiger would be prefect to show up as a supporting character on any of the Netflix Marvel shows.

Dues anyone else remember Tigerman from the short lived Atlas Comics of the 70s?

"Does anyone else remember"

Yes would be cool to see him and tigra or thundercats

Gerry Davila said...

I believe she was name-dropped on ‘Jessica Jones’.

@Sonofjack: remember him? I kept hoping for him and Man-Monster to tangle with The Brute!

That would've been the greatest three-for-all of the Seventies since Spidey vs. Morbius vs. the Man-Wolf.

I've been a fan of the White Tiger since the character first appeared back in one of Marvel's B&W Kung Fu mag's back in the 70's. I digged the all white costume and the concept of combining the three tiger amulets of the Sons of the Tiger, who I also liked.

As a matter of fact I have a fondness for most of the Kung Fu characters of that time, Iron Fist, Shang Chi, the Daughters of the Dragon...hey it was the 70's and Everybody was Kung Fu Fighting. ;-)

I didn't get introduced to the Bronze Tiger until he appeared in the Wall's Suicide Squad but found him to be an intriguing character as well. Kinda miss the funky tiger mask he used to wear.

I'd also like to see him in SS sequel and was surprised that he wasn't in the first one. Any thoughts for who they should get to portray him?

You should have a new team called The Color Wheel. You could have: Blue Marvel, Red Hulk, Yellowjacket, Green Arrow, Shrinking Violet, and Larfleeze the Orange Lantern.

Wesley Snipes should play Bronze Tiger. He has the martial arts experience. He's old enough to believe he's spent enough years training to be the best. Plus he has experience as a convict.

I actually liked those Atlas/Seaboard comics.Too bad they only lasted 3 or 4 issues. Hey, how about the Atlas Taratula vs Spider-Man?

Cary Comic said...

Just one question: is this the White Tiger from Iron Fist's Heroes For Hire back in the Nineties? The one who really was an albino tigress genetically accelerated by the High Evolutionary?

Oh, right! Hector's hermana! Thanks, Ross. :-)

P.S.---have you ever thought of pitting Kato against Shang-Chi or Iron Fist?

Re: Kato vs. whoever -- might as well go all the way and have the Grandmaster (Goldbulm version) decide to run the Ultimate Bloodsport tournament: all of the DC and Marvel martial artists, Kato, Bruce Lee & Kareem from 'Enter the Dragon', Van Damme, etc. etc. Only need to feature Grandmaster and one pairing on the cover, with a backdrop of the bracket chart with the rest of the combatants.
