If Apollo fought the Panther while wearing his All-American, "Mom's Apple Pie" red, white, and blue huggies, then it would be no contest. Clad in those togs, Creed would be the next best thing to Captain America. The larger comic book-buying demographic would DEMAND an Apollo Creed victory over the African king from a racist, xenophobic nation who has a name reminiscent of a black American "hate group".

Of course, it's fine with the larger comic book-buying demographic when the patriotically-clad Apollo Creed can beat Rocky Balboa nearly to death and still wind up losing the fight in the end.

The Italian Stallion always trumps the Black Panther AND Apollo Creed where the larger comic book-buying demographic is concerned.

And then of course good ole Apollo corners Rocky in his fight with Clubber,wherein Rocky out-THINKS Apollo during the fight by proving that Rocky is a BETTER copy of the fighter whom Apollo is modeled after--ALI--because Rocky uses a version of the rope-a-dope to outwit Foreman/Liston---errrr,CLUBBER LANG--and beats Clubber.Exactly how ALI beat FOREMAN.Then Apollo commits the unforgivable sin of showing he's Rocky's EQUAL at the end of the movie (the double knock out they inflicted upon each other,thus officially splitting their record at 1-1-1) so that means that APOLLO gotta die for that,and here comes IVAN DRAGO.

Don't buy the hype that Carl Weathers would've OPTED OUT OF A GUARANTEED HIGH PROFILE with the Rocky franchise if the option was there.He would've tried to hang onto the guaranteed ROCKY check,while simultaneously trying to establish his own rising profile.Too bad it really didn't work out for him...

Now supreme, we must remember what many members of the larger comic book-buying demographic and other non-comic book-buying members of their racial grouping think when considering what you've just discussed.

Of course the "Italian Stallion" is going to be able to absorb massive punishment deep into the latter rounds of a brutal championship boxing match with the split-image of Muhammad Ali - Apollo Creed - and have the physical and mental where-with-all to outfox and surpise Creed by suddenly "digging deep inside of himself", switching to "southpaw" and unleashing a withering body attack on Creed that exposes Creed's critical physical weakness which would lead to his ultimate defeat in their ill-fated rematch. Why? Because Elvis is the "King". Larry Bird is "Simply The Best" and eminem is the "savior" of Hip Hop kulture and rap music.

Anything black folks can somehow manage to do well, there is always a white person who is able to do it even better.

Ali beat Supes ass.

Hahaha,REALLY?  I coulda sworn I remember a picture showing (the cover) where the two of them are charging one another,and then a panel (from the inside) where SUPES just laid a hella shot on Ali and sent Ali literally FLYING.Hahaha.woulda loved to have seen and read the whole thing,because I remember thinking even as a small child that ALI would get murdered by the Man of Steel...

Yep.  Well, Ali really did whip Supes ass, but beyond that, yeah, that's what happened.

I'm just going to assume the posts on how ROCKY was in part about proving black inferiority are joking.

-------------------------------
Naw I think Stallone had to show just how bad a** rocky was by beating arc types of the baddest men on the planet at the time. One was the muhammad ali type and the second was the mike tyson type although rocky III was before tyson went pro and the fight against the russion was just propaganda. So yea the guys are reaching. Instead of hate stallone was giving us props by making us shown as the ultimate to have the itallion stallion come out on top.
