Bert Songprasit, 31, of Mays Landing, wrote and directed an 8-minute short film, which can be viewed on YouTube, about the first black superhero in mainstream American comics, the Black Panther. The character has not been portrayed on the big screen yet, and Songprasit, who also performs hip-hop under the name Corpus, thought it was time the hero got his due. Black Panther made his comic debut in 1966. His skill set includes superhuman senses, genius-level intellect and Olympic-level strength.
