Title: HEF of BP - Voting for Recasting T'Challa the Black Panther Counts! VOTE!
Post by: Ture on April 17, 2017, 07:14:19 pm
As you are no doubt aware there has been an increase inactivity here at the HEF due to the migration of many of those who post at CBR's Black Panther thread. This process was spearheaded by our very own Ezyo. As you are one of the primary architects of the modern Black Panther era, heads would very much appreciate hearing from you.

Since you have made it clear that you are not at liberty to comment on the writers of the Black Panther who came after you, how about elaborating on any ideas you had with T'Challa and Doom post the ambush; the plans you may have had for the evolution of Shuri; your next story line post Deadliest of the Species; any more tales of Wakanda's past etc...

Let's have a meet and greet. Maybe a little Q&A. New and old posters are looking forward to hearing from you.

Cool thread! Mr. Hudlin, I'm interested in your thoughts on a follow up to Flags of Our Fathers.  Were there ever any ideas or prelim work done on that front?

I'd love to see Azzari team up with Invaders or perhaps have a run in with Orson Randall.

Mr Hudlin, what made you come up with the idea of Shuri?

I think she's a great addition to the Panther mythos and she now stands as a strong character in her own right.

If you'd known your book was going to be an ongoing from the beginning, would you have done anything differently?

Mr. Hudlin, it's an honor to have this platform to communicate with you.

My question:
If Storm hadn't been available, would you have moved forward with Monica Rambeau as T'Challa's love interest and eventual wife?

I had plans for a mini series with a teenage T'Challa meeting up with Logan, Tony Stark, The Winter Soldier and Janet Van Dyne.

Thank you!

I just thought it was ridiculous that T'Challa would be an only child.  Royalty usually has several kids...and heir and a spare, as they say.  And a strong sister would be the most interesting way to go.

Probably.  But not having the stress of planning out several years worth of stories made the opportunity less daunting.

I love Monica and think the way she's been written over the past couple of years by several writers has been encouraging. She's a very powerful character and I think she and Blue Marvel are a great match, just like T'Challa and Ororo. 

If Storm wasn't available, I would have created an original character.

Hey RH great to see you poking your head in the BP forum again, I guess I'll follow up Tures question,

If you were still on board with Marvel what was your idea for the encounter after T'Challa was ambushed by Doom? Alot of people as you are likely aware, were very dissatisfied with Mayberrys ending as it felt insulting to see T'Challa not only lose S'yan (a great character I thought) and Wakandans, but also he gets his ass kicked by Doom then thanks him for teaching him and Wakanda a lesson before destroying the Vibranium.

So again what was your idea for round two for T'Challa and Doom

Dear Mr Hudlin,

Having read your response as regards how things were supposed to have played out between T'Challa and Doom, why in the hell did Maberry go down the path he did by totally chomping T'Challa and the BP mythos out?

I really wish you hadn't left the BP book when you did because a succession of writers have more or less erased all of the tremendous work you did.

Ican't stand T'Challa as he's being portrayed now.

Mr Hudlin, thanks for popping in to answer a few questions.

What I liked about your run was that you had T'Challa interact with the greater MU instead of just isolating him away in a small corner.

One of the things I would like to see is T'Challa having a better and stronger rogues gallery. Other than Klaw and Killmonger, there aren't many that really stand out. I've always said that BP needed his own Sinister Six, a team that could challenge him on every level. Are there any Marvel villains that you would have added to his list of rogues and if so, who?

Oh man, I have no idea.  Depends on the story of the film.  I wrote WHO IS THE BLACK PANTHER so a fan who knew nothing could find out all they needed to know.  After the film, there will be a need for another trade that is a non-origin story that is accessible to the new fan.  Maybe one that involves high profile characters in the MCU.

We don't own these characters.  As writers, we each make our contribution to the greater mythos, and keep it moving. 

I remember all the Priest fans hating my run. 

Priest tells me about all the hate his run got. 

It's part of the job.

The real solution is to create more villains that have an organic relationship with the star of the book.  The truth is, most heroes don't have enough perfect opponents.  Batman has the most, and even his list gets weak three movies in.

It's easy to create those characters, but the major companies don't design fair compensation packages to justify giving them that much IP (intellectual property).  So you see the same characters from the pre-artists rights era.

The HEF is on fire due to the increased activity generated by true Black Panther enthusiasts, some of whom migrated from CBR. The exodus was led by HEF's own Ezyo and brought over some of the best posters and thread starters CBR had to offer. This flurry of posts caught the attention of one R to the H (trademark Supreme Illuminati, used with permission... we hope)  and we got the exclusive.

After years of coping with the disaster that was Doomwar and witnessing T'Challa's pathetically pyrrhic victory over Doom, Mr. Hudlin told us what he had in store for the Black Panther v Doom round three and we quote.

Mr. Hudlin's reply was one of unprecedented proportions and the wish fulfillment of all BP fans. He said.

The question we ask Mr. Hudlin...  is it still possible? Will World of Wakanda become World War Wakanda? Inquiring minds want to know.

Mr. Hudlin,

In light of the BP franchise's increasing popularity, have you considered bringing back the BP animated series?

Besides the series being great work overall, I felt it was a great way to introduce people to T'Challa and the BP-verse, while greatly contributing in increasing the BP-verse's profile.

Never say never, I love BP, but that's not really what Marvel does.  They move writers around to avoid burn out.  Personally, I'm focused more on creator owned properties.  Mark Millar is very inspiring to me.

Alot of people as you are likely aware, were very dissatisfied with Mayberrys ending as it felt insulting to see T'Challa not only lose S'yan (a great character I thought) and Wakandans, but also he gets his ass kicked by Doom then thanks him for teaching him and Wakanda a lesson before destroying the Vibranium.

So again what was your idea for round two for T'Challa and Doom



Mr. Hudlin's reply was one of unprecedented proportions and the wish fulfillment of all BP fans. He said.

Black Panther would beat the brakes off Doom to the point even the other super heroes are scared of Panther, leading to him against the world.  WWW.  World War Wakanda.


It was Mortal Man whom exemplified the feelings of us all the best.

Oh my god.  We actually were supposed to have nice things..  :'(

We just needed you in charge for a few more months


The question we ask Mr. Hudlin...  is it still possible? Will World of Wakanda become World War Wakanda? Inquiring minds want to know.

Shout to all those who made this thread grow. Special thanks to Ezyo for the follow up and extra special appreciation and gratitude to Reginald Hudlin for providing the forum and interacting with us.

First of all, I love everything about this post.  Hilarious.

Second of all, Doom is in a whole other direction now.  There are bigger plans afoot, plans I don't know about, and I'm focused on other things.  I just finished a script that Denys is illustrating now.

Mr. Hudlin,

In light of the BP franchise's increasing popularity, have you considered bringing back the BP animated series?

Besides the series being great work overall, I felt it was a great way to introduce people to T'Challa and the BP-verse, while greatly contributing in increasing the BP-verse's profile.
The animated series happened out of a unique set of circumstances.  As the executive of a network I could green light a book I was writing, then leave the network and produce it.  None of those things are true now, and Marvel's film and television plans are manifest much more concretely.  I don't see how a BP animated series fits into that.

Silly me, I totally forgot how much of a factor your time as a network exec was in green lighting the project. Had to facepalm myself on that one. *facepalms*

Nonetheless, thank you for answering my question.

Now that.. would of been an event. Seriously I would love to see a Wakanda vs the world go on. They just need to let you stay on for another year to tell that story.

Last question for me at the moment, of marvel gave you another 6 part mini (let's say after the huge movie debut) what story would you tell to get people fresh off the hype of the movie into Tchallas story

Oh man, I have no idea.  Depends on the story of the film.  I wrote WHO IS THE BLACK PANTHER so a fan who knew nothing could find out all they needed to know.  After the film, there will be a need for another trade that is a non-origin story that is accessible to the new fan.  Maybe one that involves high profile characters in the MCU.

Alright sorry let me change it up, if marvel greenlight whatever you wanted, (I'm talking Coates level promo and pushing)  and 2 seasons atleast of comics guaranteed with no fear of cancelation, and not Being able to finish your story, would you write BP for them again
Never say never, I love BP, but that's not really what Marvel does.  They move writers around to avoid burn out.  Personally, I'm focused more on creator owned properties.  Mark Millar is very inspiring to me.

Okay Fair enough, I could see how that could produce burn out, and also i can see the preference of going more on creator own properties rather then the Big 2 considering ones hard work can be turned on its head and changed, and retconned out over a span of a few short years.

Thanks again for answering I dont have any other questions at the moment i'll have to think of some more. But im not gonna Lie, I hope that One day you do come back and Marvel Lets you do something amazing again for BP, Be it another Solo, Or that Black Avengers book you mentioned before.

REGINALD HUDLIN BREAKS HIS SILENCE

The HEF is on fire due to the increased activity generated by true Black Panther enthusiasts, some of whom migrated from CBR. The exodus was led by HEF's own Ezyo and brought over some of the best posters and thread starters CBR had to offer. This flurry of posts caught the attention of one R to the H (trademark Supreme Illuminati, used with permission... we hope)  and we got the exclusive.

After years of coping with the disaster that was Doomwar and witnessing T'Challa's pathetically pyrrhic victory over Doom, Mr. Hudlin told us what he had in store for the Black Panther v Doom round three and we quote.

Wow, that question is harder than the previous one! 

Let me start on the other other....

....when it comes to classic Marvel story lines, the introduction of Galactus, the Watcher and the Silver Surfer were incredible. No one had ever written a comic book story on that scale.  The resolution with the use of the Ultimate Nullifier seems like the easy way out, but the overall power and scope of the story still stands. 

The subplot of Peter Parker ducking the blind date with Mary Jane Watson, culminating in him opening the door, seeing the hottie he never imagined she would be, and her saying one of the greatest lines in the history of comics:  "face it Tiger, you hit the jackpot".  That's everything you need to know about her.  She's confident, she totally knows what's been going on, and she's knows what's gonna happen next. 

Jumping way ahead....Civil War.  It was such an obvious, brilliant idea, and forever changed comics and comic book movies. 

That's three.  Two more to go.

Mr. Hudlin,

If we remove Static from consideration, which Milestone property do you think is most ready to hit the ground running as a feature film or prestige television series?  I discount Static since he's already a known and proven entity.  Personally, I'd love to see a premium network do something with Blood Syndicate. 

I've always felt that Blood Syndicate, as a concept and as an actualized series, "out X-Mens" the X-Men in terms of authenticity and spoke much more directly to the POC/Minority experience while tying in the fantastic.  X-Men just seems like a Hollywood bus tour of racism.

As for kids, see my Black Panther annual, Black To The Future, where they have a gang of kids.  Some with powers, some not.  So yes, that long into the run, kids are gonna be popping out.

There was a question about my five favorite Marvel stories of all time. That's super tough, but here goes:

The Coming of Galactus was amazing.  The only flaw in it was the use of the Ultimate Nullifier as the way to defeat him.  Feels too easy.  But the scope of the story was incredible. 

Mark Millar's Civil War was brilliant.  It was such an obvious idea, but it had never been done before.

Earth X, by Jim Krueger and Alex Ross, was flat out genius.  it made so many ideas in the Marvel Universe make sense, like the Celestials and Galactus and the Asgardians. 

The Dr. Strange Silver Dagger story. 

still thinking about the fifth entry.

It wouldn't be the station that it is now if it wasn't for the changes that you started.  That's fact!

Yo, Reg...have you ever specifically thought of TChalla's  skills and physical attributes like strength or speed levels under your pen?

A.  Is he slightly weaker, strong as or stronger than Captain America?

B. In terms of intelligences, is TChalla smarter than, smart as, not as smart as or possessed of a different combo of Intelligences than Reed Richards, Maximus, Thanos?

C. Whose senses are shaper insofar as smell touch taste and hearing is concerned: TChalla or Wolverine? [ I would give SIGHT a edge to TChalla ].

D. How rich was TChalla under your pen?

E. Did your Wakanda have mutants?

F. Were you going to revamp old villains or create whole new Rogue Galleries for TChalla, or both? Could you name one new and one old villain you were leaning towards making/using?

When I was given the opportunity to write the six issue mini-series that became the start of my run on the book, I wrote it as a way to introduce the character to someone who had no previous knowledge of comic books, let alone his history.  I didn't know if a movie would ever be made, so this would serve as a model for what one would be. 

Yes I had all kinds of ideas of how that could be adapted and expanded, but it's all irrelevant now.

When did you start reading comics?

If you were to do a monthly Black Panther buddy book, what hero would you make his partner(similar to Power Man & Iron Fist)?

What do you think is T'Challa's greatest technological accomplishment?

Thank you and have a great day.  8)

My older brothers read comics so I can't remember a time I didn't read comics.  I remember the first comic I bought.  We were at the spinner rack and my brothers were grabbing stuff so I asked mom if I could pick one out.  I bought a Gold Key Monkees comic.  My brothers were disgusted at the choice...they thought it was a waste of 12 cents that could have been spent buying a "real" comic beyond their budget.  But I stuck to my guns. 

Hmmmm, a Black Panther buddy book. Panther and Storm?  Panther and Cage?  Panther and Reed?

Yo, Reg...have you ever specifically thought of TChalla's  skills and physical attributes like strength or speed levels under your pen?

A.  Is he slightly weaker, strong as or stronger than Captain America?

B. In terms of intelligences, is TChalla smarter than, smart as, not as smart as or possessed of a different combo of Intelligences than Reed Richards, Maximus, Thanos?

C. Whose senses are shaper insofar as smell touch taste and hearing is concerned: TChalla or Wolverine? [ I would give SIGHT a edge to TChalla ].

D. How rich was TChalla under your pen?

E. Did your Wakanda have mutants?

F. Were you going to revamp old villains or create whole new Rogue Galleries for TChalla, or both? Could you name one new and one old villain you were leaning towards making/using?
I don't really get into the Marvel Guidebook approach to rankings.  But I will say Wakanda has mutants.  And so do other African nations.

Dear Reggie Reg,
  I just wanted to say thank you! Thank you for everything that you've done and what you continue to do. To this day, whenever anyone tries to bad mouth BET, I reference your tenure as President as the turning point of the station. It wouldn't be the station that it is now if it wasn't for the changes that you started.  That's fact!
  Most BET haters hate just to hate or haven't paid attention since the early 90s.
  That's all. I don't want or need to ask you anything.
  I just wanted to say thank you.
 
Thank you!  I appreciate your contributions on the site!

Ever since you responded to my Black Panther email, I've been down for HEF. It's my internet home.  I'll always rep for YOU and this site. Know that!  8)

Hey Mr Hudlin, hope you are doing well this fine day. A few questions for you.

When did you start reading comics?

If you were to do a monthly Black Panther buddy book, what hero would you make his partner(similar to Power Man & Iron Fist)?

Mr. Hudlin, what was your first Black Panther comic book? Was there a sequel in mind for Flags of Our Fathers? What are the specs (your ideas on the functioning) of the protection totem?

I know, you feel like William Shatner at a Star Trek convention. Speaking of Star Trek... Gold Key Monkees comic? How could you pass up a Gold Key live action still cover of their Star Trek line?  :o

I remember buying three comics with half covers or no covers in a plastic bag for 35 cents. My firsts were...


Werewolf by Night

Honestly, they were all fun to write.  Doing the first arc, actually writing the panther, was unbelievable.  Three the Hard Way, with all the heroes helping New Orleans post-Katrina, was a highlight. The marriage arc was history and satisfying, despite hateration.  The annual with Storm and T'Challa's family made me just want to write stories set in that time.  The story on the Skull gladiator planet was enjoyable because I loved that original story so much, plus I got to put MLK, Malcolm X and the Black Panthers all in one story.

I thought of that question immediately when it happened. But I thought:

1. R to the H was prolly handling some BET and multimedia stuff for BP and his other projects
2. Didn't R to the H have his wife pregnant or a baby roundabout that time?
3. Jason Aaron was hot as hell during that time and they wanted to keep pumping up TChalla's sales. The LCBRD was doing its full on racist hateration on R to the H and BP [ remember the Three Headed Monster? ], and Aaron most definitely would pump sales. And that's exactly what SEE WAKANDA AND DIE did, under Aaron
4. Also...if R to the H wrote SEE WAKANDA AND DIE? TChalla would really have ganxtafied flat blastd the Skrulls. He would have busted out tech that trumped Reed's tech, and flashed his SKRULLS BE TRIPPIN CONTINGENCY PLAN on them in the form of something like GASKIYA GANI FASAHAR...TRUE REFLECTION TECHNOLOGY.

That? Is a Wakandan Ultimate Nullifier for all disguises, ruses, possessions, dominations, etc.

And then? R to the H would have had other big brains like Bruce Banner, Kang the Conqueror, The Watcher, etc. take note and be impressed. And when Hank Pym...the same Skrullified Hank Pym who stood shoulder to shoulder with Reed Richards and Stark during Civil War...gets uncovered? Hank Pym Skrull says:"Impossible! You are not smart enough to do that!"
TChalla:"Clearly, I am."
Skrull Hank Pym: "Reed Richards is the smartest of your kind. His technology is the most advanced on your world."
TChalla: "Wrong. Who told you that?"
Skrull Hank Pym: "How did you DO that?"
TChalla: "I only have time to kill you, not explain how paltry your technology is when compared to mine. Perhaps your Skrull Gods can explain to your spirit where you erred, when you get there. If they're in a talkative mood."
*KILLS THE CRAP OUT OF SKRULL HANK PYM*


OTHER HEROES, AGHAST: You KILLED him, TChalla.
TChalla: *Silent. Not caring*
OTHER HEROES: Now we'll NEVER find Hank..!
T'Challa: W'Kabi, are you in position? [ Of course TChalla knew that The Skrulls captured the rest of The Illuminati, because TChalla gave them their first private room in Wakanda  for meetings and absolutely spied upon them as they hatched their plans. Which TChalla could easily see would backfire, leading to their capture or death or worse ].
W'KABI: As you commanded, sire.
SHURI: Returning to the RANA KISA [ RANA KISA MEANS "SUN KILLER", THE ULTIMATE  INTERDIMENSIONAL AND INTERSTELLAR CLASS BATTLE AND MULTIPURPOSE SHIP; YEARS LATER? TCHALLA INNOVATES FROM THIS CLASS OF SHIP TO CREATE THE ARC SAVING SELECTED HEROES DURING SECRET WARS UNDER HICKMAN ] "MAFI HATSARI NA JINSUNAN" [ Meaning DEADLIEST OF THE SPECIES ] with all packages in tow. No casualties. [ Pause; then Shuri adds with an intimidating chuckle sounding more like a she-panther's growl ]. On OUR side! [ The Midnight Angels greet this proclamation with a mighty shout of warrior passion ].

While the other heroes stand around with mouths agape, Shuri returns with THE ILLUMINATI and guides all of the Skrullified Heroes back.
 
Then? TChalla would not even stoop to handle the hell out of H.A.M.M.E.R. personally. He's already got them beat. He simply ensures that his homies don't catch the H.A.M.M.E.R. static, and provides safe havens for under the radar heroes like Night Thrasher , Patriot, etc.

During Necrosha? Hell. Equipped with an Anubis Class Neutralizer, Ororo leads a Wakandan detachment against Selene [ who's been trying to get TChalla in the sack for rigorous and plenty orgasming for years, which both Ororo and Selene mention as verbal daggers to get under the skin of others; Selene salaciously suggesting that she "had her way with TChalla many times prior to your return; shall I describe the Royal Bedchambers to you?" whereas Ororo permanently knows better, clowns Selene, beats her down, and adds: "...you got the description of The Royal Bedchambers wrong! There were no Royal Bed Chambers until I had them designed. TChalla, being an ascetic, and a warrior, preferred a simple unadorned warrior's rest and meditation chambers. And TChalla...being TChalla...would have had you executed summarily, Selene, had he condescended to lend an ear to your desperate pleas for his attention." ] whoops ass unlimited, reenforces her position as the ultimate incarnation of the Mutant-Human Harmony, Hope and Peace of the [ pre-trashed by later writers ] noble Charles Xavier, digs into Emma Frost with her comments about constant lovemaking with TChalla, flawless problem free relationship with TChalla, Ororo's Queen Status and Queenly infinite wealth, unending shopping, unfeigned, unlimited adoration of the masses and all of the people in the continent of Afrika, etc...

...and after ending the Event after Secret Invasion [ Necrosha ] by smashing the crap out of then killing the crap out of Selene, Ororo takes the Afrikan mutants with her back to Wakanda. Nobody who might have a problem is alive enough to protest the Queen's decisions in this matter. And to put the smash on the magic of Selene? Easy work. We see the long awaited return of Mendinao aided by janky but madd powerful Zawaviri, and we see that Ororo had another plan in mind when she went off to slap the fangs and the taste out of Selene's mouth: Queen Ororo returns with the youngest daughter of the current Modjadji...RAIN QUEEN...as this younger daughter is Afrikan, a mutant, a very powerful witch...

...and rocks blue eyes with signature silver and blood crimson hair. She is part of Ororo's lineage. The first to bear the mark and the blue eyes since Ororo herself.

R to the H would do something even crazier and flyer than allat I wrote above. That's why Marvel was like: HEEELLLL NOOOOO!! MR. R TO THE H AINT DOIN NO KINDA SECRET WARS WRITING OR ANY OTHER ACTUAL PENNING OF A MAJOR MARVEL EVENT.

The first Black Panther book I read was his debut in the Fantastic Four.  My brother Warrington's book.  That locked in who the Panther was to me.  When I wrote the book I wanted to get back to that feeling. 

The first Panther book I bought was the start of the Killmonger arc.  It ended with him being thrown off a cliff.

Yes, I had/have a sequel for Flags of Our Fathers in mind.  It is set during T'Challa's teenage years, and it involves Wolverine, Tony Stark, Janet Van Dyne and The Winter Soldier.

If the Gold Key Star Trek was on the spinner rack, they may have been a hard choice between that and the Monkees book.  But it wasn't so Monkees it was.

Mr. Hudlin, thanks for participating in this thread of Q&A. I really enjoy reading your answers as to what your ideas for BP would have been and they give joy and pain in that they confirm what many of us longtime hardcore as well as some new fans who are learning more about the history of this character believed you would have done had you not left the scene. I understand you won't talk about other writers, which is fair. But, whenever I run into someone who says they know the character because of what Coates wrote, I tend to roll my eyes and ask them if they've ever read yours or Christopher Priest's work with BP let alone anything from McGregor, Kirby or even some of the work by McDuffie. Because I feel more BP fans should be aware of how much of the current mythos you have a part in. Even watching the on-screen version of BP  by Chadwick Boseman, I see the merging of the Priest/Hudlin depictions of T'Challa and Wakanda (minus Ororo as wife, unfortunately) over anything else.  I really hope that more folks go back read some of the writers, like yourself, that actually made BP a bad ass and "A-list" hero in the MU well before he hit the movie screen. To take in the work of ALL writers to see how far the character has come.

Sorry if this isn't really a question as opposed to more of a statement and show of appreciation of your work with BP. But I felt I should speak on it.

Hey there Mr Hudlin. Hope you are in good spirits today.

Every writer gives T'Challa a different voice when I read their runs. During yours, who's voice did you hear in your head speaking as T'Challa?

Had your run lasted longer, would you have given T'Challa another sibling at some point?

The BP trailer has elements of many Panther runs, yours included  ;D. What were you most proud of seeing and what else would you like to see in the movie?

Mr. Hudlin, due to the inevitable crash and burn of the Coatesverse, the BP comic book is going to need a recognized name to revitalize it. Two names echo loudly...Priest and yourself. If offered, would you write a limited Black Panther series?

Speaking of follow ups... with your entry into the superhero film genre with Shadowman, would you be intersted in doing one of the cinematic Black Panther sequels?

In addition I will double up on Marvel2100's question and ask your thoughts on the BP teaser trailer.

If/when I heard T'Challa's voice in my head back when I wrote the series, I heard Sidney Poitier. I always felt he's who Jack was drawing when he first designed the character in Fantastic Four. I could be wrong, but that's who the template is to me. 

Very quietly, BP has another sibling, who died during Klaw's attack.  I had plans for him too.

Hey there Mr Hudlin. Hope you are in good spirits today.

Every writer gives T'Challa a different voice when I read their runs. During yours, who's voice did you hear in your head speaking as T'Challa?

Had your run lasted longer, would you have given T'Challa another sibling at some point?

The BP trailer has elements of many Panther runs, yours included  ;D. What were you most proud of seeing and what else would you like to see in the movie?

If/when I heard T'Challa's voice in my head back when I wrote the series, I heard Sidney Poitier. I always felt he's who Jack was drawing when he first designed the character in Fantastic Four. I could be wrong, but that's who the template is to me. 

Very quietly, BP has another sibling, who died during Klaw's attack.  I had plans for him too.



If you can/want to say, Whats the sibling name?

Holy game changing detail, Batman!!

You know, RH, I had a very strong feeling [ based upon your rendition of Ramonda, and in particular reading about the now deleted details of D'Cigswayo that used to be part of BP's regular biography ] that RH had a brother...twin of Shuri...named D'Cigsway. I included him in my fanfic. I had NO IDEA that you added in the game changer of Klaw killing D'Cigswayo.

I built a bio supposing that D'Cigswayo..."D'Ciggs" as Shuri used to call him as an infant, a nickname that stuck...survived, and was temperamentally a midpoint between Hunter and TChalla, but more rakish and roguish than either. He was loyal, but problematic. And he was Shuri's favorite brother. The static between Shuri and T'Challa was amplified by the exit under a cloud of "disgrace" of D'Ciggs after one of his more complicated roguish off-book actions [ as yet unspecified ] that resulted with his rash action exposing Wakanda to some form of unwanted and unnecessary risk, even though he felt then and felt now that taking his action was the right thing to do [ and Wakanda ultimately benefited from it ]. D'Ciggs is the leader of this generation's Kifalme Shujaa Heshima, The Royal Warriors of Honor...miscalled by the West "The Black Musketeers".

The questions that came to mind were; would you be willing to mentor or share expertise in detailing how to start and maintain an independent comic book? Details outlining how to start, team needed, how to acquire necessary funds to cover expenses, publishing and distribution. Would Milestone be interested in producing independent creators and their characters?

News On DC's MILESTONE Relaunch Coming Soon Says JIM LEE

By Chris Arrant, Editor

(https://img.purch.com/o/aHR0cDovL3d3dy5uZXdzYXJhbWEuY29tL2ltYWdlcy9pLzAwMC8xNDIvMDgyL2kwMi8yNTQxNTI3LW1pbGVzdG9uZV8yLmpwZw==)

DC Entertainment Co-Publisher Jim Lee said that the planned relaunch and reboot of the Milestone line announced two years ago is still alive, and would be moving forward with news possibly coming in the next few months. Touched upon briefly at the "Meet the DC Co-Publishers" panel at Comic-Con International: San Diego earlier this month, this comes alongside news of Milestone's N Steven Harris drawing a new Static/Hardware illustration for September 16's MECCACon in Detroit.

Milestone Media was reformed in January 2015 by Reginald Hudlin and two of its co-founders, Denys Cowan and Derek Dingle. Later that year at 2015's SDCC, DC announced it had reached a deal with the company to once again license the Milestone IP for usage as a comic book line and in other media. Originally founded back in 1992, Milestone began publishing comics in 1993 as an imprint of DC Comics. Although DC later integrated some of Milestone's characters into DC's core superhero line (including Static in the 2011 "New 52" relaunch), Milestone retained ownership of all its characters and had merely licensed usage of the characters and the content they produced in the 1990s to DC.

"We couldn't be more proud and excited about the opportunity to bring the 'Dakota' Universe back to DC," said Lee in 2015. "This is a huge step forward for us in bringing readers a more diversified lineup as part of the new DC Universe, and we're anxiously looking foward to telling new stories that are socially and culturally impactful and representative of the world in which we live."

At the time, DC's plans were for a seperate line co-existing in the broader DC Multiverse but in a seperate dimension, 'Earth-M' (which Lee reconfirmed this month). There was a plan for titles including Static Shock, Icon, Rocket, and Xombi, with creators including Hudlin, Cowan, Geoff Johns, Jim Lee, Bill Sienkiewicz, Ken Lashley, and Christopher Priest. In addition to reviving Milestone characters of the past, Milestone Media said they'll also be introducing new characters and including new creators in the mix.

In July 2016, Lee told CBR that the delays were due to Hudlin's work as a filmmaker. Hudlin refuted that, however, in March 2017, saying that DC was holding up the launch but Milestone was "fixing that challenge."

Warner Bros.'s has since re-released the Static Shock animated series in two DVD sets, and Static was included in the line-up for Warner Bros.'s Young Justice: The Outsiders which is scheduled to debut in 2018.


The questions that came to mind were; would you be willing to mentor or share expertise in detailing how to start and maintain an independent comic book? Details outlining how to start, team needed, how to acquire necessary funds to cover expenses, publishing and distribution. Would Milestone be interested in producing independent creators and their characters?

Hey Mr Hudlin, I hope your having a good day.

I've always sad that Black Panther needed his own version of a Sinister Six, a team of villains to challenge him at every level:

1. Moses Magnum
2. M'Baku
3. Armless Tiger-Man
4. Windeagle
5. Madam Slay
6. Malice

Those would be my picks for this team.

What team would you envision that could challenge Black Panther?

I must be tired. You can disregard this question Mr Hudlin. I asked about a Sinister Six over a month ago.

Hey Mr Hundlin. I just became aware of the Milestone issue. I hope things work out for the best for all concerned. On another note, what was your greatest contribution to the mythos and legacy of the Black Panther? I thought the concept of Wakanda being unconquered for 10,000 years, the creation of Shuri, the marriage of Black Panther and Storm and that T'challa's mother was never kidnapped and raped were standouts.

All day, I agree with the above. I found RH's adjustments to the BP mythos to be absolutely essential ,and deeply satisfying. I absolutely couldn't stand the whole idea of Wakanda being technologically backward, and equally heinous and repulsive the notion of Ramonda being kidnapped and raped. FOR A DECADE OR MORE. I just couldn't stomach that. I knew. Right away. That only a White guy would write that and only White folks and Negropeans...really "Negropee-ons"...would find that vomit even remotely acceptable.

However. I think that finding a plausible explanation for past events that makes BP look better and badder and more brilliant than ever, as opposed to erasing them entirely from the narrative, is a better tactic and requires better writing.

The last time I looked, Coates wasn't Caucasian and he's written actual Wakandan rape camps into the mythos which Don McGregor never did.

T'Challa was created by two Jewish men and has been written with respect by more than a few writers who happened to be Caucasian such as Geoff Johns and David Liss and even the unfortunately maligned Don McGregor himself.

After all it was Don McGregor who fought tooth and nail to keep T'Challa's supporting cast 99-100% African when Marvel editorial were putting mad pressure to throw some white faces in there just because.

I respect Don McGregor for his contribution to the BP mythos just off of the passion he had for the character in spite of the fact that I was overly enthused with the dragging T'Challa through the barbed wire aesthetic that informed some of his BP work.

He wasn't a hater which is more than can be said for Coates.

There is absolutely NO REDEEMING OF COATES. The sooner and faster and more thoroughly he is off the book? The better. I can't emphasize that enough. Also? I deem Coates to be both a Negropean and a Negro-pee on. I mentioned Negropeans and Negro-pee ons above. So, yeah. We agree TNC isn't White and he wrote the absolute worst rendition of BP that any person of color could ever write.

But I found a plausible write-around of his garbage almost immediately. I think finding a plausible write around is a hallmark of a superior writer, and simply wholesale erasing stuff [ while convenient and in TNC's case is absolutely a good idea; not the best idea imo but a good one ] is both easier and signals a less creative, maybe less intelligent, more complacent approach to the writing material on hand.

So. One way is to erase the whole vomitous pile of yukk from memory. The other ? Is to write around the bad stuff which is 99.999 percent of his garbage, and keep the good. That's what I would do. Because some of the stuff he introduced [ The Force Push, The Ancient Future, the reconnect with Storm, the exploration of Wakanda's Gods and a few other things ] have tremendous potential far beyond the weakness of his writing and T'Chumpaness of his whole getdown.

Take that. And add lots of good stuff. Like CJP did with a lot of the BP mythos [ if not all of it ] is a way that I would go. Whereas an erasure eliminates the potentially incredible stuff that can be done with an actually GOOD writer who REALLY IS A MAJOR FAN of T'Challa.

The Farce Push is an overused gimmick now.  Correct me if I'm wrong (I refuse to go back and look) but if I recall correctly, it's never even been named on panel.

The "Ancient Future" is a Dreamtime ripoff that's merely used as an excuse for information dumps.

And the Faux-rishas... are set dressing.  And make no sense from either a Marvel perspective (since that pantheon already exists there), a real-life perspective (since he invented most of those names, except the ones he cribbed from Egypt), or even a Wakandan perspective (we have a Panther God, but no White Gorilla God, Lion God, or Crocodile God?).  Hell, Ewing has done more work to justify the Progenitors (creators of the Kree, essentially their gods)... and they even LOOK the same.

I can understand the desire to expand the Wakandan world... but some ideas come with too much baggage to use.

And some writers are too crap to remember.  Better by far to let them fade away….

Bro, I already know that Coates is a crap writer.

What I took umbrage to was your assertion that only a "White man" could come up with, and appreciate negative/offensive stories set in the BP mythos.

Coates is an African-American author of political nonfiction books who on the surface appears to be "woke" but is anything but based on his BP book thus far.

I don't know whether that makes him "Negropean" or not but I do agree that his tenure as BP scribe has been really bad for the BP mythos as a whole.

I don't care what the ethnic background or gender of a writer is as long as they deliver solid work that elevates T'Challa and Wakanda.

Coates wholesale creation of unnecessary characters/deities reeks of desperation and a desire to be seen as a writer who's brought something "new" to a mythos that was fresh before he came into "wriring" comicbooks.

Mr. Hudlin I'd like to ask what are your thoughts on the rekindling of T'Challa and Ororo's relationship? In your opinion was enough ground work laid to get them back to where you left them? Do you think there's a chance that your vision can still work? If so, are there any things  that should be done to bring them closer? Have they hashed all their baggage and gripes out to your liking? Do you think genuine fans of your work and the foundation you laid are wrong to still advocate for them as a couple? Or are they living in a bubble of denial to believe Marvel won't come and smash it to bits all over again? Enquiring minds would love to read your response. Thank you for all you've done.

Mr Hudlin, have you heard any news about BET rebroadcasting your Black Panther the Animated Series especially post release of the new film early next year?

Hey Mr Hundlin. I just became aware of the Milestone issue. I hope things work out for the best for all concerned. On another note, what was your greatest contribution to the mythos and legacy of the Black Panther? I thought the concept of Wakanda being unconquered for 10,000 years, the creation of Shuri, the marriage of Black Panther and Storm and that T'challa's mother was never kidnapped and raped were standouts.
Everything posted gets two thumbs way up.

Mr. Hudlin I'd like to ask what are your thoughts on the rekindling of T'Challa and Ororo's relationship? In your opinion was enough ground work laid to get them back to where you left them? Do you think there's a chance that your vision can still work? If so, are there any things  that should be done to bring them closer? Have they hashed all their baggage and gripes out to your liking? Do you think genuine fans of your work and the foundation you laid are wrong to still advocate for them as a couple? Or are they living in a bubble of denial to believe Marvel won't come and smash it to bits all over again? Enquiring minds would love to read your response. Thank you for all you've done.

Mr Hudlin, we are having a most engaging discussion on qualifying T'Challa's strength as either peak or superhuman. I thought I remember reading during your run that the Black Panther did not use the herb or something to that effect. Was there a reference made about one of the Panthers fighting Cap and T'Challa remarking that it wasn't a fair fight as Cap was enhanced? Would you weigh in on this topic?.

You might be thinking of "Before the Storm" when Tchalla talks about the fight with some guy during his walk about. But after thinking about it, would Tchalla tell a non Wakandan that they have a herb that can enhance human abilities? I'd think he tell the cover story to keep the state secrets.

Not quite accurate. It WAS the " PRELUDE TO THE MARRIAGE OF THE CENTURY Storm" miniseries written by EJD but EJD had young T'Challa state that his father T'Chaka wasn't enhanced when he fought AND BEAT DOWN Captain America...whereas Cap WAS enhanced by his SSS. This very clearly indicated that T'Chaka WAS BORN PHYSICALLY SUPERIOR TO SSS CAP, which made all the sense in the world to me.  Neither T'Chaka nor T'Challa have had their strength enhanced via the HSH. I remember this so vividly because I had been very much of this opinion and had been waiting for an author to bald face state that which I wanted and believed in print for quite some time.

(https://images-na.ssl-images-amazon.com/images/I/518xVJyJPoL.jpg)


And even Don McGregor specified that the HSH gave T'Challa a spiritual strength and a unique connection to panthers the world over...and had Wakandan scientists opine that the HSH enhanced T'Challa's proprioceptive senses to the peak of human ability. It didn't seem to give him Peak Human Strength even then. I remember the lush painted scenes of that PANTHER'S PREY miniseries very well.

I mean...tell me that you ain't feelin T'Choro. I am and always will. This is the PERFECT matchup for T'Challa. I swear fo' Ginger Snaps, yall, that T'Choro is the straight up greatest thing in comics.

He probably wasn't enhanced under McGregor, but at the same time he got beat up by every villain he came across and had to struggle to win. I think a guy managed to pistol whip him in a grocery store. If he wasn't enhanced then, probably wished he was. lol

You're RIGHT. T'Challa could whip the butt of any acrobatic, leaping, grace, silent stealth, or whatever other noncombat feat not featuring a villain resisting him, but under Don's pen? T'CHALLA GOT BEAT UP BY A GANG OF REGULAR NONMUTANT WHITE TEENAGERS. AND THERE WASN'T EVEN A LOT OF THEM, EITHER.

T'Challa needed to be enhanced by someone who wrote stories of him ACTUALLY EFFORTLESSLY AND DECISIVELY WINNING FIGHTS. Lol.

Dear Mr Hudlin,

I was recently asked by someone newly introduced to Black Panther, after reading your entire run (via your iteration's three volume TPB collection) why T'Challa didn't have the armor available that he used the first time he confronted Doom? I attempted to explain to some degree but thought it might make more sense if you could do such?

We absolutely love BP! And I for one absolutely believe that T'Challa should be recast. What would be REALLY a good look? Is if they pay T'Chadwick's family some of the proceeds from BP 2. Give them 1% of the movie's proceeds...which is basically going to break a billion dollars. So that's what...$10 million? Give T'Chadwick's family THAT.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Tears streamed down Brooke Moreland’s face as she watched tens of thousands gather on the steps of the Lincoln Memorial to decry systemic racism and demand racial justice in the wake of several police killings of Black Americans.

But for the Indianapolis mother of three, the fiery speeches delivered Friday at the commemoration of the 1963 March on Washington for Jobs and Freedom also gave way to one central message: Vote and demand change at the ballot box in November.

“As Black people, a lot of the people who look like us died for us to be able to sit in public, to vote, to go to school and to be able to walk around freely and live our lives,” the 31-year-old Moreland said. “Every election is an opportunity, so how dare we not vote after our ancestors fought for us to be here?”

Read this in the YouTube comments section; the suggestion was so wild & imaginative felt I'd share here at HEF:

Before Killmonger “died”, his last words were “bury me in the OCEAN, with my ancestors”.

It could be that Killmonger did get buried in the ocean in accordance to his dying wish, and instead of dying he was found by Namor and the Atlanteans.

He was then saved and taken in so they could gather intelligence on Wakanda.

Perfect way to introduce Namor as well as keep Killmonger alive.





Edit: if you still think it doesn’t make sense for him to be alive, think again. Sure, there is no plausible explanation for a regular human to live that long after being stabbed in the chest, but the heart shaped herb is a supernatural thing that grants superhuman ability. Therefore it’s not unreasonable to make it so that he was able to live long enough to be saved.

By AUSAR! That could WORK!! It's a VERY PLAUSIBLE EXPLANATION FOR BRINGING KILLMONGER BACK AT A LATER DATE!! It's absolutely terrific, all the way around...

...but it trivializes his death scene. The payoff for bringing him back? Must be significantly greater and more impactful than his death was; and THAT, True Believers? Is a very hard thing to do.

POLL RESULTS: Should Marvel Recast Black Panther?
The results are in after ComingSoon.net asked our readers to weigh in on whether or not the late Chadwick Boseman’s Black Panther should be recast, if another character should take up the mantle, or if the studio should cancel any future Black Panther movies, with nearly 4,800 votes! Check out the results below and let us know in the comments if you have different thoughts!

Should Marvel Recast Black Panther?

Yes, but it should not be T’Challa, it should be another character taking the mantle like Shuri or S’Yan (2,444 votes)

YES! They have to recast T’Challa with a great performer like John David Washington or John Boyega because he’s too important to the MCU (1,768 votes)

No, Chadwick Boseman was too memorable in the role, they should not make more Black Panther films (578 votes)

BLACK PANTHER RECAST
By David Calderon

With a character like T’Challa, it would be a waste to lose such an important character people have come to love and respect. Of course, there are plenty of people out there who think to recast T’Challa would be a dishonor to Chadwick Boseman. I think they’re wrong.

Why We Think They Should Recast Black Panther
By Beautlin

We also stand with that and say, why not cast another dynamic actor who stands for everything Chadwick stood for. That will keep the Black Panther movie going forward and keep giving hopes to the millions of Africans worldwide. And come on, it’s not like we can or will ever forget Chadwick. Nothing will make us forget him.

3 Reasons Why Marvel Should Recast the Black Panther.
by CRAIG ARNOTT

However, keep in mind that if they recast T'Challa with a new actor, there are plus sides to this. It is also worth remembering that Marvel and the actor they choose will both be consciously aware of how much the character means to so many. With Marvel constantly nailing the actors they choose, it is worth keeping faith that if we get a new T'Challa it will be a continuation of Chadwick's legacy as a character and not out of disrespect. As Black Panther says, "Wakanda Forever" meaning Chadwick's memory will never die regardless of what happens.
