LD,

This is a good face-off poll suggestion. I recommend keeping this as a face-off suggestion and (if you are interested) expanding this poll per urbane' suggestion as a separate poll.

I wasn't necessarily suggesting expanding it. But, do think some voters may think of  the well seen Tarzan (1999), who becomes King of the Apes, when posed the question. Which story about a king in Africa was your favorite adaptation from Disney?
Maybe alternatively ask, Which of these two stories about a king in Africa is your favorite Disney movie adaptation? If asking an open-ended question it is nice if the answer you think of is an option, when its multiple choice.

Nice suggestion.  I forgot about Tarzan.  But I want this face-off to focus on Black Panther and The Lion King. I updated question with your suggestion.  Thank you!

Dan Dassow -That's a great poll idea from urbanemovies.  I may be interested in the near future if urbanemovies or another poll maker is not interested in making it.

I haven't seen 'Black Panther' yet but I will be soon - largely due to you, LD - seriously. One of your polls made me want to see 'Logan,' which I did. I liked that a lot so that made me want to see a good superhero film again. 

May I suggest one small edit? (below in bold)

'The Lion King' and 'Black Panther' have a lot of similarities.  

Oh, and the question is phrased really well and mentions one of the biggest similarities so maybe put it in bold? It's up to you, of course. I just think this is a great question phrased perfectly:  Which of these two stories about a king in Africa is your favorite Disney movie adaptation?

Oh really?  Which poll?  Awesome, that's great!  Glad you enjoyed 'Logan'.  

I updated the description with you suggestions.  I made the question in bold text too.

Thanks again. :)

LD, it was "Professor X Words of Wisdom." It made me give superhero movies another chance. I had really like the first two Spiderman movies with Toby McGuire and a few of the Batman movies I saw but, at some point, I guess I got "superhero fatigue." So many seemed to spring up so quickly and I couldn't even keep them straight, like "who are the Avengers?" Lol. Even when 'Wonder Woman,' which I had been hoping would be made into a movie since I was about ten, was released, I didn't see it. A few of your polls made me reconsider and the Professor X poll definitely made me want to see 'Logan,' which I did and now want to see more, so you have a convert, lol.

Thats great!  Professor X is probably the best comic book character adapted to films. 

More and more comic book movies come out every year.  It can be confusing-overwhelming.  But I'm glad Logan caught some of your attention with this poll.  X-Men comics theme is bigotry, so there have been a ton of great positive and intellectual quotes from writers over the years.  If you liked Logan, then you may like X-Men: Dark Phoenix (2018).  Its another tragedy type of story.  The creator Dark Phoenix, Chris Claremont, is one of the best writers in X-Men and Marvel comics history.   I'm planning on making an X-Men villain quote poll soon. Hoping for more good quotes from Dark Phoenix so I can add later on. Thanks for your kind words.  :)

And yet with all the acclaimed comic book adaptations... Flaming Carrot is still not on the screen in any shape or form. He was scrapped from the adaptation of his own title which become a cult film Mystery Men (1999) and then his appearance on "Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles" (2012) was axed as well. :(
