  • Many sites claim this character is a re-colored version of Red Panther taken from the story in Jungle Comics #2 however, although the basic plot element of both characters' debuts are very similar... There is nothing to indicate that one is a re-print of the other (the art is different, there are no identical panels, etc.).
