Black Panther / Batwings
« on: June 11, 2011, 10:18:59 am »
  Unless you have been under a rock ya'll know DC is doing a 52 book reboot. One of the book is a DC book called Batwing or Batwings. He is going to be an African based superhero dealing with both fictional and real problems in his country of Tenesha. Judd Winick is writing the book and for the stuff that I read is everything that we wish the Black Panther was. I tell you DC HAS IT PROBLEMS WITH A 52 BOOK REBOOT but a solid story with a black superhero protecting black folks in a black city what more can you ask fo. I encourage everybody to buy this book. If you want to read more try Batman Inc.

Black Panther / Black Panther on the Avengers
« on: January 08, 2011, 06:52:22 pm »
      i have been so disappointed by the recent comic book offerings that I have looked everywhere for satisfaction. Black Panther on the Avengers is well done. T'Challa is confident, smart, resourceful and could step to lead at any moment. The episode Panther's Quest in which T'Challa get his spotlight was exceptionally good. All your basic elements are there T'Chaka, Man-Ape, Klaw, in Wakanda. I loved it. Hopefully T'Challa will get more screen time but the episodes are great watch while waiting for the highly anticipated DVD.

Black Panther / Wakanda in X-Men Forever
« on: January 08, 2011, 06:45:59 pm »
Chris Claremont has been writing some of the best stories concerning Wakanda in the past few months. Those of you that have had X-Men Forever 1 AND 2 off your radar..go get these books. Claremont is a writer who understands the Black Panther and his relationship with Storm. Although STORM screws over T'Challa the best elements are still there.

Some good idea dere some I agree with other not so much..

Here is my two cents about how to make the Black Panther from a B-lister to an A-list hero.

1) Get rid of Jonathan Mayberry bring in Dwayne McDuffie.
No disrespect to him but with T'Challa..sometimes the writer and character are not a good fit. I am not saying it has to with him personally but if it was Cap or Wolverine he would probably do fine but with a character with a small but loyal fan base he needs more. McDuffie is a seasoned COMIC book writer who knows the complexities of a character esp. when dealing with black characters. He knows what lines to cross and ones to step back from. Doomwar...I don't mind what happened to Wakanda but how it happen I have a HUGE problem with. Doom and T'Challa were ALLIES. Look at Black Panther 2099.. the Black Panther still became a puppet of Doom.

I agree

2)Give T'Challa back the mantle
Yea, Yea Dick Grayson was Batman too but Bruce is getting his suit back. Nuff Said.

I agree.

3)Give the Black Panther a strong supporting cast
I would love to see Monica Lynne return as a US Ambassador to Wakanda. Shuri as the WHITE WOLF. Kasper Cole as the head of security at Wakandan Design Group. The return of Queen Divine Justice and Vabraxis. The return of his cousins the Black Musketeers or as the Fantastic Force. Last but not least the return of Jakarra as the military dictator of Azania.

I agree on strong supporting cast, but I disagree with a few of your picks..

Jakarra - I'd keep him dead, He's one of the 1st ppl T'Challa had to kill & his brother.
I'd have T'Challa reflected on his death for issue or 2 (maybe talk to Shuri & O about it.)
I'd have H'unter & Killmonger bring up to piss T'Challa off
& I'd introduced/create Jakarra  mother who would hate much hate every one (T'Challa, QM, Shuri, O, Syan, Zuri, T'Chaka, & etc).. That How'd I keep his name/memory alive     

Monica Lynne return as a US Ambassador to Wakanda... No please, guess star when T'Challa & O have storyline in the US. But no Ambassador to Wakanda. I'd prefer Ross & I hate Ross.. I don't hate her I just don't thinks fits & really never did fit.  As for US Ambassador to Wakanda, I'd say Steve R or Sam W or Monica R would make better fits imo.

Black Musketeers-I personally never cared for them (I liked Khanata hair in JK run & Dr.Joshua Itobo, was ok he come make a ok villain..) & if brought back you mite have explain how there his cousins & etc (which mean making the 2 older members T'Chaka & S'Yan sibling or giving Nanali or Azzuri a brother or sister & making them dere kids).  I'd just make J.Kirby Khanata & Fred Van Lente Derek Khanata on in the same.

He's alot easier to work & bring back into the myths imo.  He's around T'Challa age or maybe a lil older.
If you put those 2 characters together you go have half you work & just fill in a few details.
I'd say he's T'Challa cousin by way of N’Yami (little has been do with her so be some development for her as well & we know very lil about her side of the fam.). I'd make him  N’Yami kid brother or nephew.

From JK run he know he had little interested in being Panther/being a super hero & prefer driving his race car. Also that was that brave atleast up till Kibers issues of JK run & after those issues the character wasn't used again. I'd revel that change his out look on life & made him deice he didn't want what happen to him (being kidnapped) to happen to another Wakandan. So to become stronger he join the Hatut Zeraze & became a high ranking member. Also I'd reveal he's was T'Challa inside man in the Hatut Zeraze & told him all the things H'unter was up to & etc. After that HZ were disbaned, He, his wife & kids  went he want to traveling, later decide he wanted to be a SHIELD agent a little before Secret Wars (after he T'Challa started hearing rumors SHIELD was planing to invade a foreign powerhouse nation  ). Also I'd reveal that he was giving T'Challa inside info on SHIELD.


Kasper Cole as the head of security at Wakandan Design Group.
- T'Challa seemed didn't to like him or trust him all that much. I think Okoye would be better for that role with Kasper member of her security team. That way you you some what bring back/bring up their feeling for each other..

The return of Queen Divine Justice -  I agree

Its time Queen Divine Justice/Ce'Athauna be brought back & take her rightful place a leader of Jabari tribe/ White Gorilla Cult. I'd personally have her White Gorilla Cult work very M'Baku.  Something similar to how Chiro from Super Robot Monkey Team HyperForce Go! & Vixens of DC comics work. Meaning she wouldn't be walking around in a Gorilla suit

 
4) Make February Black Panther month and have T’Challa and his supporting cast make an appearance in every Marvel Comic book in publication. This would raise the profile of the Black Panther and make other readers aware of who he was.

This both hurt & help.  Because they'd get JOBBED in many of those guest appearances & you'd here ppl complain about having BP force down there throats & etc.

5)Give T’Challa a quest or a new sense of purpose of who he is.

I think that kind of what they'll doing with him now & I really havit been enjoying it so far

6)Give T’Challa a Prime Minister to carry out his affairs ala the Queen of England.

Petty much already has this in the Regent role.(which W'Kabi, Ross, N'Gassi & S'yan have all done). I'd keep Shuri as Regent/Princess-Regent have her take over W'kabi role aka have running the War Room, running things when T'Challa & O are not in nation & etc.

7)Bring back the Order of the Panther and The Dogs of War…Hatut Zeraze.

I agree

I'd make Derek Khanata/Khanata  leader of the Hatut Zeraze.
I'd make Malaika the leader Order of the Panther .

8)Make and license Black Panther merch. Nothing builds a character like wearing the clothes like caps and T-shirts.

9) Posters, Posters, Posters.

10) The Black Panther animated series.

I agree..

To your list I'd added BP needs more villains. Moses Magnum, Deadly Doctor Nightshade, H'unter & Kiber The Cruel should joined Klaw & Killmonger as top Panther villains.

I'd like to see Malice/Nakia & Princess Zanda returned as some.

I'd also added Red Ghost (Ivan Kragoff), the Purifiers, Carnivore, & Deluge as villains who be used in BP books.

iGood point I agree it ghave me something to think about. I would love to see Kiber the Cruel comeback.

White Wolf is suppose to be the reverse of the Black Panther. Why would Shuri become a White Wolf? Besides that's Hunter. Shuri should become something of her own, not talking on another characters name.

How about Shuri because her own identity instead of taking on another male identity?  ???

I think Shuri should become the White Wolf because like the Black Panther it is a royal title. The White Wolf shows status and Wakandans are all about traditions.

        I have always been intrigued by Priest's run of the Black Panther. One of the best parts of the book is the Hatut Zeraze..The Dogs of War. Although their methods was harsh, I don't think DoomWar would happened if the Dogs were still around. What I think what would be really cool because of Wakandan's vulnerabilty because of DoomWar I think the Dogs should return. However I would like to see Shuri in charge as the New White Wolf or better yet the White Panther. Shuri new found skills would not go to waste and she would have an even more important role as the virtual Sec of State. In that same manner T'Challa needs to have his suit back. He is the Black Panther. He has alot to answer to because he virutally lost what has been protected since the days of the 1st Black Panther Bashenga. He needs a quest to find all the Vibranium still out there and bring it back to Wakanda. HEY why not blow up Castle Doom in the process.

Black Panther / Re: Doomwar: The End
« on: August 04, 2010, 09:57:16 pm »
             This whole series was about depowering the Black Panther.  Give me a break Panther being lectured by Doom? You hold a gun to my mother's head, nearly destable my country, and disrespect my wife and all you get is a lecture. Vibranium did not define Wakanda..the warrior reputation did. The fierceness that the Wakandans did to protect this precious metal that define them..that what made them special. Without the Vibranium the Wakandans are nothing but a minor superpower. I really hope this writer proves me wrong or when he leaves this book and believe he will another meteorite hits Wakanda and we can do this all over again.

  I just wanted everybody to know before I tear into the book "Doomwar" that i designed that flag at comi-con based on a Kirby/Almond design from years ago. Do not believe me here is the link with Bob Almond holding my creation.

Black Panther / Re: Priest Created the Black Avengers?
« on: July 20, 2010, 10:17:54 pm »
                 I also hated the name of the crew. I would have loved Champions, Guardians, the original (Dark) Avengers.

Black Panther / Re: Zawadi

           Zawadi is a great character that was around during World War I so techncially she would be an older relative...maybe a mother?

Black Panther / T'Challa and the X-Men
« on: July 19, 2010, 04:02:29 pm »
               I feel that since Shuri is the new Black Panther the logical way to go for him to do is join the X-Men with his wife Storm. Storm is an X-Man and will always be. T'cHALLA gets the chance to affiliated with another major group and the X-Man has a new source of financing. SHURI can keep her title without the influence of her big brother in the book. Any guy that can get along with his younger sister deserves a medal.

             Hero X everybody kept telling me about you at Heroescon and I could have have shot myself not getting a picture with you. Hopefully I can get up with you next year. Great Suit!

   What more is it to say that the Midnight Angels look great. I love the arm patches and the sheer design of them. Wetworks? I would have preferred to see the Order of the Panther esp Martikia but it has def got my eye.
