Title: Agents of Atlas #1. Panther related. [SPOILERS]
Post by: Hulkster on August 03, 2006, 08:51:52 pm
In this issue, there is a SHIELD agent from Wakanda named Derek Khanata.  Commando agent "Gorilla Man" identifies him by his tribal markings which appear on each cheek as swirls.  Have their ever been any references to Wakandan tribal markings before?

"Derek Khanata". "Derek".

He's Wakandan and his name is "Derek"?

The name looks suspiciously European to me.

How is it that a Wakandan - a citizen of an African nation that was never conquered by Europeans - has a European-looking (sounding) name?

While I'm in an inquisitive mood (sinjection's enquiring mind wants to know  :)  .... Why was "Hunter" named Hunter? Hunter's biological parents were dead and Hunter himself was little more than an infant. Neither Hunter's deceased parents nor little baby Hunter could have told T'Chaka his name was Hunter. Why wouldn't T'Chaka and N'Yami have given the baby a Wakandan name?

 I think he was created by that dude who did that Scropion mini-series. I think that he got into a fight with White Wolf or something. The dude who the scorpion mini-series really loved Priest's Panther.
