I heard that Actor,Wesley Snipes stole the idea to make Cartoonist, Marv Wolfeman, comic book "Blade" into a motion picture from African American Cartoonist, Ken Willis, the same guy who originally hand-picked him to play the leading role as "Blade" in the motion picture version. The sad part is Wesley Snipes never paid Ken Willis one thin dime or movie credits that he owed Mr. Willis, for bringing the "Blade" project to his production company Armen Ra'. So that Wesley Snipes, could aquired the property rights to "Blade" project before the major studio got wind of buying the movie rights themselves. Now the IRS is going to make him pay everything that he should have paid Ken Willis on the movid "Blade." What goes around;comes around. Boy, "God" works in mysterious ways!!! Pay the piper Dr. Wesley Snipes.

1973-Marv Wolfman & Gene Colan created the comic book superhero "Blade."

1976-African American, Cartoonist, Ken Willis created the idea to make Marv Wolfman & Gene Colan comic book "Blade," into a full length motion picture.

1984-African American, Cartoonist & Producer, Ken Willis arrive in Hollywood in order to make his childhood comic book superhero "Blade," into a big screen motion picture, with Actor, Karate Champion, Jim ("Enter The Dragon") Kelly, or Actor, Ex-football Player, Jim Brown portraying the leading Marvel superhero character "Blade" in his of movie version of the "Blade," comic book.

1994-Write & Actor, Stan Lee wanted Actor, Wesley Snipes to portray his original superhero character "Black Panther." Sorry, but it did not happen?

1994-Writer & Director, John Singleton wanted Actor, Wesley Snipes to portray "Shaft" instead of Actor, Samuel Jackson. Sorry, but, it didn't happen?

1994-African American, Cartoonist, Ken Willis, wanted Actor, Wesley Snipes to portray
the Marvel superhero character "Blade," in his version of the "Blade" comic book character. Surpise! The "Blade" movie was produced in 1998.

1994-1998-Actor, Wesley Snipes, Circumvented African American, Cartoonist Ken Willis out of his own "Blade" movie project, when Wesley Snipes, produce the "Blade" movie without Cartoonist, Ken Willis through his production company called "Armen Ra'with the aid of New Line Cinema.

1998-2004-The Blade Triology made well over $200,000,000 dollars. Where Actor, Wesley Snipes, did not give African American, Cartoonist, Ken Willis one red cent for casting,pitching, consulting, and personally hand-picking him for the greatest film role of his acting career.

2007-Cartoonist & Producer, Ken Willis, who brought you "Blade" indirectly through Actor, Wesley Snipes and New Line Cinema. Will now bring you his original superhero comic book and movie called "MASK MEN".

So, next time you are watching a "Blade" movie triology. Please, be advised to remember that African American, Cartoonist, Ken Willis, brought you the movie "Blade," because of his childhood dreams of one day coming to Hollywood to see his childhood superhero "Blade" on the Hollywood theatres around the world.

Moral Of The Story: Be careful of what you ask for; you just might get it. At least in Hollywood.
