Mantis, the 5th Floor Guardian
Villain Name: Kareem Abdul-Jabbar
Movie: Game of Death, 1972
Villain Info: Armed with a cool name and a 7’2” frame, Abdul-Jabbar does battle with Lee in one of the more odd screen pairings you’ll ever see. Even though he was of course known for his basketball career, Abdul-Jabbar is fluid and practiced with his martial arts skill, and the fight choreography perfectly plays up the sheer physical contrast between the legendary Laker and the 5’7″ Lee.
