Marvel Reveals Iron Man Wasn't Trusted By Black Panther
Iron Man and Black Panther might have fought together in Captain America: Civil War, but when the Illuminati formed, T'Challa didn't trust Tony Stark.


Marvel Comics just took a deeper look into the first meeting of the Illuminati, revealing Black Panther didn't always trust Iron Man. In a brand new preview for The Death of Doctor Strange: The Avengers #1, the story flashes back to the formation of Marvel's most secret superhero group. When Black Panther arrives on the scene, Tony Stark admits he represents everything his fellow hero distrusts.

Iron Man and Black Panther have been both friendly and foes in the comics and the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In Captain America: Civil War, Black Panther joined team Iron Man alongside Vision, Black Widow, Spider-Man, and War-Machine, and fought for the Sokovian Accords after the death of his father T'Chaka. In the comics, Black Panther has often (understandably) wondered whether his fellow Avenger wants his precious Wakandan Vibranium metal for his own scientific and capitalistic use. In the preview for The Death of Doctor Strange: The Avengers #1, Iron Man straight-up admits that Black Panther doesn't trust him because he's protective of Vibranium.

In a brand new preview of The Death of Doctor Strange: Avengers #1 by  Alex Paknadel, Ryan Bodenheim, Rachelle Rosenberg, Darren Shan, and Kat Gregorowicz by Marvel Comics, readers are taken to Wakanda ahead of the first meeting of the Illuminati. Iron Man and Doctor Strange have a somewhat tense conversation before the meeting as Tony Stark tells the Sorcerer Supreme he can't trust him because he can never fully grasp his magic, saying, "I can't trust what I don't understand."

However, Iron Man welcomes Doctor Strange into the Illuminati for one reason: Black Panther trusts him. But, Tony Stark admits that T'Challa doesn't extend the same trust towards him. He tells Doctor Strange he embodies "everything King T'Challa mistrusts...", adding that since his country sits on a vast deposit of Vibranium - the world's most precious metal - he doesn't trust the Iron hero around it. Iron Man admits that Black Panther's lack of trust is earned.

Considering Iron Man's shady past and his love of fame and fortune, Black Panther is right not to trust him fully. If Vibanium fell into the wrong hands, it could have deadly repercussions for the Marvel Universe. Now, imagine if that person has a genius-level intellect like Tony Stark. Ultimately, it's unlikely Iron Man would ever use Vibranium for intentionally evil reasons, but it's understandable why Black Panther wouldn't want him anywhere near the powerful metal. Black Panther didn't trust Iron Man for a completely valid reason. The Death of Doctor Strange: Avengers #1 is in comic book stores this Wednesday.

Gessela Studios. Black Panther Fan Art. Cover mock up, white and royal purple background.


True indeed Supreme Illuminati, I remember your premise.

Here's another cover for BP's soon to be released new series.

T'Challa looks like he just landed a vibranium charged punch to the ground. The look on his face and his demeanor while looking at the cover of John Ridley's first issue says it all. Another author out to deconstruct the Black Panther then replace him with a subordinate character who the writer has always seen potential in.

Don't do it John... for Bas/Bast's sake don't do it.

Fans will be able to witness the beginning of this new hero’s journey before seeing him become a key player of Ridley’s run in future issues.

In addition, the main story in the 200th issue of BLACK PANTHER will see T’Challa face off against the X-Men!

And back home, Shuri discovers who is behind the attacks on Wakanda’s secret agents—a revelation that will change everything.

"Ridley will also introduce a new hero who rises up to protect the people of Wakanda while T’Challa finds his life and role as Black Panther thrown into turmoil!" Not again... Shaking my head. Am I to believe T'Challa is going to be a guest star in his own book just to prop up a new or Coates' established character? Who is it, the X-Men Gentle? A new hero rises, really? Why can't T'Challa the Black Panther rise... especially in his own book?

In addition we have T’Challa face off against the X-Men! Could be good, should be good if done correctly and respectful to T'Challa the Black Panther but reading this "Wakanda’s faith in him shaken, T’Challa goes to visit Storm on the newly terraformed Mars. But this will not be a happy reunion as T’Challa has ulterior motives for his visit." almost makes me think he's going to the planet formerly known as Mars with his cowl in hand asking for help? I hope not.

BP fans and enthusiasts have been through too much with the past several writers to be giving a new writer the unquestioned benefit of the doubt. To be fair I'll wait and read what develops. The covers are great and I really like the second one featuring him solo.


Disney Delays 6 MCU Release Dates, Removes 2 Marvel Movies From Slate
The drastic release date changes of 2020 are not over, as Disney has announced the delays of 6 different MCU movies planned for 2022 and 2023.


However, the MCU's 2022 and 2023 calendars just got a major shakeup. Disney has officially delayed 6 upcoming Marvel movies, starting with Doctor Strange in the Multiverse of Madness. Once planned for March 2022, it has now moved to May 6, 2022. That was the date for Thor: Love and Thunder, which will now be released on July 8, 2022, thus taking the spot of Black Panther: Wakanda Forever. That sequel is now scheduled for November 11, 2022. The Marvels, meanwhile, vacated 2022 entirely and will be released on February 17, 2023. Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania was also delayed and is now planned for July 28, 2023.

Black Panther & Storm Can Finally Have an Equal Relationship
The King of Wakanda and the Regent of Arakko have loved each other for years, and their new roles could be just what their relationship needs.


As one of Marvel Comics’ most iconic romantic pairings, the relationship between Black Panther and Storm is one for the ages, but their dynamic wasn’t always entirely equal - until now. The King of Wakanda and the newfound Regent of Arakko have always been a valuable part of each other's lives. And a reunion between T’Challa and Ororo Munroe is exactly what fans have been waiting years for.

Now that they’re both occupied with responsibilities on a cosmic scale, the pair have a better understanding of each other than ever before. And while Storm and Black Panther haven’t been an official item since way back before Avengers vs. X-Men, plenty of readers still see them as soulmates. And if recent developments in both characters’ lives are any indication, those readers just may be right.

S.W.O.R.D. #8 by Al Ewing and Guiu Vilanova cements Storm’s new reign as the leader of the planet Arakko. With an entire world of highly advanced mutants looking to her for leadership, she knows better than ever the weight of the crown T’Challa wears. Meanwhile, his crown has only gotten heavier as Black Panther #25 by Ta-Nehisi Coates and more cemented his rule as the leader of the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda.

But despite their fancy new titles, the duo is still very much in love. Throughout Black Panther #25, they still refer to each other as “beloved,” and in the King In Black: Black Panther one-shot by Geoffrey Thorne and Germán Peralta, the King of Wakanda finds himself torn between doing everything he can to protect his people from the Symbiote invasion and rushing to Storm’s aid. The pair’s feelings for each other are clearly still incredibly strong, and with their newfound roles, there’s never been a better time for them to reunite.

Storm has always been incredibly powerful on every level, and she was even treated as a goddess before her time with the X-Men, but her recent political upgrade has taken her to a whole new level. As an iconic X-Man, and even a member of the Avengers for a brief time, Storm had her fair share of responsibilities both as a hero and as Wakanda’s Queen. But despite all her duties and titles, Storm’s various influential roles still created a dynamic that was very different from the relationship between her husband and his people.

Now, T’Challa’s Wakandan expansion has forever changed the mantles of king and Black Panther. It was never a question that Black Panther and Storm’s relationship was one based on love, but their separation in Avengers vs. X-Men proved that the Black Panther's duty to Wakanda came first. And as the leader of the intergalactic Wakandan Empire, T’Challa’s responsibilities have only grown.

But with her new position as the Regent of Arakko, Storm’s responsibilities have grown as well. As the ruler of a planet of superpowered beings, she’s become the default voice for the Sol system in the cosmic corner of Marvel Universe, making her every bit as politically powerful as her beloved. And were they to finally reunite as recent events have hinted, they would both have incredible responsibilities to ground them and keep their love in perspective.

In the eyes of the fans, Storm and Black Panther belong together. And their recent promotions just further prove that point. With their new responsibilities occupying even more of their time, Marvel Comics would be smart to reunite these two separated lovers before they’re literally star-crossed.

It has never been a question of equality to me but one of respect. Even in this article there remains a slant towards Storm's new responsibilities while knowing full well that T'Challa's emperorship of an intergalactic empire literally dwarfs Ororo's regency of a planet or even the solar system. The Black Panther and Wakanda have always shown much (perhaps too much) respect for Storm, can the X-Men and mutantkind say the same?

Properly written T'Challa and Ororo would recognize their love and fidelity for one another and seek a union that would consummate in a new royal family and herald a new leadership throughout the cosmos. Ororo would petition for Arakko to become a member of the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda and together the Black Panther and Storm would face the challenges of the universe lightening charged hand in vibranium powered glove.


Black Panther's Brother Hunter Returns To Marvel Comics
A little-known character from the Black Panther franchise just reappeared in a new Marvel adventure: Hunter, T'Challa's white half-brother!


Marvel's Black Panther franchise is known for having plenty of supporting characters that are loved by fans, but one of T'Challa's lesser-known allies has reappeared in Marvel Comics: his white half brother Hunter. The character has an interesting history with the Marvel Cinematic Universe in that the hero's title - the White Wolf - made the transition from page to screen, but not necessarily the hero himself. But in Black Panther Legends #1, written by Tochi Onyebuchi with art by Paris Allleyne and colors by Setor Fiadzigbey, Marvel revisits T'Challa's relationship with Hunter.

In Black Panther history, Hunter was raised alongside T'Challa in the royal city in Wakanda after his parents perished in a plane crash in the neighboring Republic of Mohanda. As one of the very few Caucasian people even allowed to visit Wakanda, let alone live in it, Hunter wasn't always accepted by the citizens - but he was always welcomed by T'Challa and the royal family. However, he harbored a slight resentment toward the family, as he knew he would never be chosen to take the throne over T'Challa (much like Loki.

In Black Panther Legends, Marvel retells the story of a diplomatic trip to South Africa by King T'Chaka, who takes both T'Challa and Hunter along. The group see for themselves the divide between races - Hunter must stand isolated in a "Europeans Only" line while the rest of the delegation queue next to him. T'Challa learns that his grandmother was one of the many anti-apartheid revolutionaries in South Africa at the time, which inspires him to defend a child beset by bullies in the streets. Hunter fights with him - and the two are naturally scolded by their parents after - but Hunter immediately realizes the difference between himself and his brother.

"I was jealous of T'Challa," Hunter admits to the queen, his adoptive mother. When T'Challa rose to the challenge and defended the target of the bullies, Hunter felt like he was only defending T'Challa. While he fully admits that T'Challa deserves to be the Black Panther and the next King of Wakanda, he can't help feeling that as soon as T'Challa was born "...I lost the chance to prove myself." It's a surprisingly mature realization from someone as young as Hunter, who would go on to become the White Wolf much later in life.

Unfortunately, Hunter's desire to prove himself manifested in a desire to upstage T'Challa in any way, even after his brother became king. The White Wolf would later become a member of the Wakandan secret police, then a mercenary, and finally an enemy of T'Challa and an exile from Wakanda. Unfortunately, since Hunter and the Black Panther's bond went back years in the comics, the White Wolf is nearly impossible to adapt in the MCU (which is perhaps the reason why Bucky Barnes is the new holder of the title).

But superheroes and sci-fi have never been beyond Ridley’s grasp. He’s written episodes of shows like Justice League and Static Shock and was briefly working with Marvel on a series, which was shelved before ever being announced. In 2021, he wrote comics for both DC and Marvel. Currently, he is working within the Batman universe and will soon take over for Ta-Nehisi Coates on Marvel’s current run of Black Panther.

Needle in a Timestack offers a preview of ideas Ridley will explore on Black Panther. “It’s a story of the past,” Ridley says of the Marvel comics storyline he’ll pursue. “I want to do as much as I’ve done with Needle, which is to take this extraordinary character in this amazing space and say, ‘What makes him human?’ If heavy is the head that wears the crown, what makes T’Challa’s head heavy?”

As he spun a movie from Silverberg’s story, Ridley aims to build upon foundations laid by Black Panther writers Coates and Reginald Hudlin. “You say [their] names, and you know what they did with Black Panther,” he says, “I want to build on those stories. You can look forward to a very human, very grounded take on what it’s like to be Black Panther. It’s the story of regret, in many ways.”

Well this interview didn't give away much. What makes him human? It's a story of regret. So we might get another sad and broken, naval gazing T'Challa. While he did mention building on not just Coates but also Hudlin it remains to be seen how he will integrate the two very different approaches and iterations of the Black Panther.

The highlighted related link about what for Wakanda being the best part of a boring game is also a good read

They’d be stupid if they don’t spin off a Black Panther game out of this. Though as MOS said on CBR, I wouldn’t mind it if said game is set in the same world as Spider-Man so that the stink of the avengers game doesn’t scare off new players.

Indeed, not giving Black Panther a solo game would be a huge missed opportunity. While I can't say Marvel, Disney and company are not investing in the Black Panther, there appears to be a consistent hesitation, stutter, dismissal or out ignoring of his reaching and expanding much of his potential whether it be in comics, animation film, gaming or merchandising. Black Panther is game ready, been game ready and he can do it all with out being yoked to the Avengers or Spider-man.

Comixology... so that's your secret. Cool, I enjoy reading your early reviews CvilleWakandan. The standard trope is what house's my criticism. If taking a punch is impressive I think never getting touched by five attackers is even more impressive. We agree on the whole bracelet plot. Wakandan security is indeed a joke. No weapons scanning, nor identity confirmation via facial recognition software, no armor or proficient bodyguards or automated defense systems?!? C'mon, this is why T'Chaka's death needs to be updated and made far more interesting.

I'll say what I did before she. I saw that interview.

Guest characters showing up on other heroes titles by default, are designed to help the character development of the title character.
Do you punk them out to make the hero look good? No, you should really try not to do that, especially if in order to do that they have to be written wildly ooc.

This story is simple. When they meet have them help each other, Storm sees T'Challa fighting off 5 grown adults, she comes in to help, more show up, they take them down together and escape, which each of them "Saving" the other with a lean to T'Challa getting more feats (it's his book) and leave it at that.

Ultimately it's not Storm's book, so she doesn't need some deep dive into her as a character. Introduce her, have T'Challa interact with her, be respectful to both characters and move it along.

Quoted for truth Ezyo, simply quoted for truth.

Rest in Peace queen...

Rise in Power ancestress!

Black Panther Wakanda Forever is shaping up to be will a real tearjerker. I am trying to hold on to some faith that Coogler can pull this off but it is sad to say that at this point of information about production and plot I'm almost looking past BP:WF to a future film that ensures T'Challa the Black Panther's legacy.

From his introduction he stole or owned every scene.

Whether after the wars, during his homecoming or at the endgame, each time he appeared we rejoiced and wanted more.

And now we are told that we're supposed to accept that this was all the T'Challa, all the Black Pantherwe we will have.

Dorothy Steel 95-year-old actress who played tribal elder in ‘Black Panther’ dies
By News Staff

ATLANTA — A 95-year-old actress who appeared in Marvel blockbuster “Black Panther” has died. Dorothy Steel was 95. She died Friday morning at her home in Detroit. “She went out strong,” her publicist said. Prior to her death, she lived in Atlanta for many years.

Steel played a tribe leader in the fictional land of Wakanda in the film, which was shot in metro Atlanta. Her role in “Black Panther” was her biggest, but she had a handful of credits in other films, including “Jumanji: The Next Level.”

“It was just amazing, it truly was,” Steel told Channel 2 of the experience in 2018. “If anyone would have told me I would be an actor, I would’ve said you got to be out of your mind.”

Steel was born in Detroit in 1926 and didn’t land her first acting role until she was 88 years old. “Black Panther” was her first appearance on the big screen.

She was in the middle of filming “Black Panther 2” when she died, according to her publicist. The Marvel franchise flew her home to Detroit to spend her last moments with loved ones. “This was going to be my last role,” Steel said, according to her publicist. In 2018, Steel told Channel 2 that Marvel casting directors called her just one hour after she sent in her audition tape.

Steel ended up landing the part of the merchant tribal elder who advises the King of Wakanda played by lead actor Chadwick Boseman.

“Chadwick the King. Every day, he would make sure if I was on the set, he would come by and make sure he gave me a big old hug and kiss,” Steel said. Boseman died of colon cancer in 2020. Steel said she became the “grandmother” on the set of ‘Black Panther,’ which she said is not just a movie but a movement.

“We were one big melting pot of black people and we knew we were doing something that had never been done before. Ya know?” she said. Steel said the women of Wakanda ruled ‘Black Panther.’ “We have power and it’s time for us to step up and take over. That’s what we have to do and take over,” she said.
