Black Panther / Re: Shuri gets her own series

When you don't have a writer on the book because the main writer has walked off AND you don't have a replacement? That book IS CANCELLED. Period.



Unless Marvel decides it is, Iíll take a Shuri solo over the mutant folks want pushed as the premier black woman at Marvel.

Black Panther / Re: Agents of Wakanda series
« on: June 24, 2019, 12:23:22 am »
I have to disagree with the sentiment that Wakanda gets reduced. Why? Because Wakanda is so powerful it doesn't need to bother with the small stuff. If it requires Wakanda then they will do so. But it's literally in the same vein as when you have mentioned before cases or villains that should not even be on BPs blimp and the DM would handle said villains. Same thing with this team. I simply agree that Agent's of Wakanda need to have more Wakandans because while it's okay to have non Wakandans, there needs to be actual Wakandans as well and it's very important that it happens 


Zub is a deep cut kind of guy and when he gets on a title he does his research on all characters involved so it wouldnít surprise me if heís aware of even wakandans that have been all but forgotten. This does include also having conversations with writers of charters solo titles such as he has mentioned keeping in contact with Ahmed for Miles/Kamala and Ewing for Riri so that sadly now includes Coates BUT unlike Coates Zub knows wtf heís doing

Iím cool with it as Ririís comic has been really good and imo Eve Ewing has done a whooooooooooole more for that character than Bendis, thatís not a knock against him but imo during his final Marvel years I think he was burned out especially on writing Miles because whooooooooboi was that last run rough.

Shuri is in this odd place of the Coates stuff was a thing( Iíll be nice and leave it at that ) while MCU Shuri is the embodiment of ďblack girls rockĒ and Iím all for that as theyíre basically trying to find a happy medium for her character. Iíve been buying this series since the start but Iíve only read the recent team up issues with Miles & Kamala( there ainít enough hours in a day ) but I plan to binge the previous issues to see if Iíll keep it or just come back for the Riri team up, I did finally drop Coates run as I havenít read a issue since.........issue whatever Chris Sprouse was drawing
Ironheart comes to Wakanda in August. Meeting of the female big brains.

Idk that IRONHEART still had her own book. It's very good to see. I haven't read the book since Bendis penned it. My last ish was the ish after Riri met Pepper. Reading that Eve Ewing...is she Al Ewing's wife?...pens it and the positive reviews from the hard to please fans here? I'm definitely going back and getting as much of the whole run as I can. I haven't been into collecting comics for the better part of...too long.


They just happen to have the same last name, just like with Miles and Saladin Riri has been far better served under Eveís pen

I got everything because a local shop was taking donations to support a charity my wife supports( Parents helping Parents ) and for $20 you can get the entire selection. The Avengers issue was my fav as Iíve been enjoying the summer blockbuster route Aaron has been going ala Ellis/Hitch from back in the day.

Sadly my hopes of finding anything in the bargain bins was dashed as it was slim pickings and mainly nu52 stuff

Seems I finally got half of what I wanted which is a complete scrubbing of the X-Men and moving past this minority analog starring pretty what people even though so far itís now just pretty white people doing something. Thank heavens he also mentioned that the franchise has been in a faux Clearmonte kick for over two decades

Ahmedís run is the only comic I subscribe too that Iím consistently reading the day it drops, I heart that comic

Next comes the big screen destruction of Wakanda. Much to the delight of a lot of "fine people". No surprise after after disney showed dead black kids in Avengers : Civil War.

Idk if that will happen, brutha. Wakanda seems to have survived Thanos, even though both Shuri and T'Challa were killed by The Snap. And? BP 2 is coming prolly in 2021. Soooo. I really don't think that Wakanda is or will be destroyed. Let's see how it goes.



Besides, they already destroyed Asgard.  And moved the remnant to a "shanty fishing village." (A friend's quote.)  They didn't destroy the city until they were done with new Thor movies.  Destruction of Wakanda probably wouldn't happen until we reach the final BP movie, and it might not happen then either--especially if the same creative crew that put it together writes that final story.

Though, I wouldn't be surprised if they have another "big battle."  Marvel movies do like those big battle scenes.

COSIGN.

We're definitely going to have some big battle scenes ahead, and we're looking at monsta throwdowns in the near future. We mess around and get us THE ULTIMATES in name and mostly in roster onscreen. With the F4 and X-Men coming to Disney? Don'tbe surprised if we see AVX or even more unexpected...AVFX: Avengers vs Fantastic 4 and X-Men. Or some kind of massive multifranchise mashup combining the teams.

You wanna see a big fight? Imagine Silver Surfer and THE GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY scrappin vs some major intergalactic menace...like the Skrull Empire.

Mess around and see Doom, Malekith and The Grandmaster team up...especially with The Eternals on the horizon. Wouldn't it be absolutely nuts to introduce THE STRANGER in a SILVER SURFER franchise or this here ETERNALS joint to set THE STRANGER up to be a major foe?

You know what's likely to beat all of the team vs team mashups, though? Yep. a multifranchise SECRET INVASION type storyline. That would also give us another humongous Wakanda war scene...essentially SEE WAKANDA AND DIE in the MCU.

And wouldn't it be absolutely friggin crazy to get the first Battleworld with THE BEYONDER or some such coming? And that could herald the return of Steve Rogers as Captain America or The Captain.

And we haven't even touched the kinda fun that Doctor Strange could have. Maybe reintroduce BLADE and DOCTOR VOODOO via a pair of Doctor Strange movies. And Shang Chi movies? Sounds like a good way to bring in Iron Fist, The Punisher ,and pretty much the whole DEFENDERS too.

If Shang-Chi can't do it? Remember the much overlooked and very fun ANT-MAN AND THE WASP team ups aren't going away, and they can bring in good people, too. Maybe Lunella.

If War Machine is on deck, then both Pepper Potts and ReRe Williams have a real opening here. I mean, there's lots of things that even my sleepy brain on a Sunday midafternoon can throw around. And I'm not getting paid millions todream this stuff up. The MCU heads ARE getting millions and even billions to do so. Therefore, I think we can rest assured that the future is in good hands, and we won't see Wakanda butt filleted by the movie variant of the LCBRD.

I wonder about Silver Surfer, because they seemed to have placed Captain Marvel into that role.  Thinking about Endgame; practically every scene she was in, I could see the Silver Surfer in each spot.


I donít but thatís because Iíve always found Surfer boring except for Slott/Allredís Surfer as played by Doctor Who.

Whassup Mad coco G! I don't think I've ever seen you post here before, even though you have 470+ posts. You clearly have good taste, because you got your laugh on like the rest of us. Post more often?


I should be back to posting more since life has calmed down for a bit, the wife is a grade school teacher and changed schools, in-laws lost their house in a fire, I got promoted and debating on going to grad school.

Adulting is for the birds

CG can piss right off

With Bitter Root taking off and David Walker starting a company hereís to hoping something happens there

I enjoyed the movie.

I was just about to ask the HEF's opinion of the movie. I suspected from the outset...and the post above pretty much confirms...that this will be yet another blockbuster for Marvel. I hope Hawkeye, War Machine, and the other largely underused characters get to shine here. I'm not thrilled that our Wakandans didn't get to wreck shop. Imo they got shorter shrift than they should have, in the last two movies. I mean...CAPTAIN AMERICA LEADING THE CHARGE IN WAKANDA? Hell naw.

Cap didnít lead the charge in that battle, that was TíChalla who also was with Cap when both of them outran all the other heroes by miles to get at the children of Thanos.

I loved Endgame and itís in my top 10 Marvel movies, was I expecting TíChalla to take over the narrative nope as itís not his movie and going in you have to know this movie is mainly a send off for the ones who got this ball rolling. Going forward itís pretty much a lock that TíChalla and Carol are now the foundations of the MCU based on fan reactions and $$$$.

Shout out to Okoye as well

This is as uninspiring as it gets.



Should have left well enough alone.



Hell, even he of whom we no longer speak got that much right.





I fail to see how that is uninspired since itís far better than the horrid Coates costume
