One of the most interesting episodes shared on the Facebook page of Marvel Becoming is a video where Taboo of Black Eyed Peas wears Red Wolf costume.

Red Wolf is Marvel's first Native American superhero. The William Talltrees version of Red Wolf first appeared in the story “The Coming of Red Wolf!” published in Avengers #80 (cover-dated Sept. 1970), and was created by Roy Thomas and John Buscema.  – Wikipedia

With the help of Costume Designer-Castle Corsetry Lauren Matesic, the singer got his chance to turn himself into one of the Marvel’s superhero characters.

Lauren said, “It’s always really fun to introduce new people to the hobby and the craft, and the kind of bring out the wonder of… dressing up, and kind of releasing your inner child again.” “It’s kind of fun to be part of the process for somebody who’s never done it before,” she added.

When Taboo learned about Red Wolf, he embraced the character without hesitation.

The singer said, “Growing up, my direct link to the culture was my grandmother. She was the person that told me to go after my dreams, believe you can achieve.” And she always spoke about our culture, being something that we hold really high, and we’re very proud of,” he added.

Taboo is a proud Native American, representing the Shoshone Nation. According to him, he always wanted a superhero to gravitate to.

The recording artist wants to find the right Cosplay. For him, Red Wolf means more.

It’s not just a costume. It represents not just his heritage, but also his grandmother.
