Agreed!

Iím still in disbelief that Marvel could be so stupid and insensitive as to pursue a path that overreacts by killing off TíChalla!?!

No peace,

Exceptional, Brother Ture!

The CJP cover was like a miracle to me, resurrecting this beloved character, unexpectedly after being more or less dormant, certainly bereft of any limelight. His run brought me back into comics.

Peace,

I think it was CJP who opined the more popular TíChalla were to become, the more likely writers would be to screw around with him.

Totally agree Ezyo and love the idea of embedding a tribute to Chadwick!

I still maintain they could do this in keeping with what has already been established. Keep BP2 World of Wakanda largely as is, removing any inference to TíChallaís death and reintroduce him in mid a post credit scenes a la CJPís ďThe ClientĒ first shaking down thugs/informants and then in the post credit reveal intro Luke Charles. I guess this all just makes too much sense though!?!

Ugh!

I am hopeful for Ridleyís rendition, but then I gave Coates about 4 issues before disinvesting, so Iím cautiously optimistic. I struggle though with the reduction of TíChallaís monarchy. Part of his power was that he could have 10 NíYami class warships secretly parked in the Hudson River or wherever he felt necessary and authorize a full-fledged war at his sole discretion. It is a significant power-down for him to be limited by parliamentary approval, not that thatís a bad thing, necessarily!?! Perhaps Ridley overplayed the sleeper spies as assassins to balance out TíChallaís loss of absolute power. Truth be told, I prefer exploring a loss of executive power in a comic book rather than the loss of superhuman power TíChalla experienced in Lissí surprisingly decent run. TíChalla should need to rely on his Black Panther powers and innate abilities more than ever, even more than he did in South Africa (Pantherís Quest) during his search for Ramonda. Iím here for the possibilities. Hopefully Ridley doesnít disappoint!?!

Wow, the throwback, floating head cover for Avengers #750 is fire!

Black Panther / Re: NEW BLACK PANTHER COMIC BOOK #1 Finally, it's here!!!

There was an article I posted on CBR that I think is... Interesting


On a side note, I found this article funny, particularly the part about how the person writing it doesn't like T'Challa being written well... In character

"Marvelís new Black Panther series reveals a new TíChalla with new challenges - Polygon" https://www.polygon.com/platform/amp/reviews/22801291/black-panther-comic-series-new-avengers

Quote
Coatesí TíChalla, far from a swaggering swashbuckler, was guilt-ridden, pensive, cerebral Ö scared. He deferred to those wiser than him, many of whom were female (Romonda, Shuri, Storm, even the manifestation of the goddess Bast).


So to see TíChalla so disrespectfully dismissive to a woman in power; to see him embrace a militarist ideology that flies in the face of the democracy he willingly created; to watch him act unilaterally, recklessly, when weíve seen him accomplish so much more with others ó itís galling and frustrating. Yet for some, maybe for many, what I call frustration might be preferable.

TíChalla here is more inline with previous characterizations from Christopher Priest and Reginald Hudlin, a return to character for a man who annulled a marriage in the middle of a fight and who willingly joined a group called the Illuminati. Still, to see Coatesí characterization rolled back so unceremoniously gave me pause

These tears shall be delicious, getting back to the REAL T'Challa. Plus you know, the fact this person clearly doesn't know much about T'Challa save for Coates era. I hope Ridley continues to revert to more of Priest panther, who doesn't need advice on how to wipe his own ass


Thanks Ezyo! Such an uniformed, Coates-centric take by this author exhibiting the damage Coates and Marvel did to TíChallaís characterization. Long known as the most unshakably noble of Marvel characters, well before Coates, clearly this author didnít dig into who pre-Coates TíChalla was and flat out wrongly states that he willingly joined the Illuminati. ĎLaughableí is an apt characterization of this writerís understanding of TíChallaís character.

óó-óó-S P O I L E R Sóóóóó-

So Ridley appears to be taking TíChalla down the path CJP felt was the next logical step for his iteration of BP before it was cancelled, a Doom-path of sorts toward 616 villainy? Did not agree with CJP at the time, but perhaps itís something to explore in a calculated way now? Strategically placed sleeper agents is not the worst idea, but TíChalla would not give them assassination authority, thatís Hatute Zeraze stuff, overplayed as TíChalla sanctioned protocol should an agent deem warranted by a threat to Wakanda.

I can see a Wakandan parliamentary government as a TíChalla approved, Wakanda embraced, development though Ridleyís TíChalla hardly seems to ďapproveĒ and may likely have a coup contingency given the extent he felt he needed to go to, establishing an international sleeper agent network, to protect Wakanda?

It will be interesting to see how far down the rabbit hole Ridley takes TíChalla? All in all, an intriguing debut, competent and visually compelling if not immediately encouraging (lot of previous trauma) yet, as with any fresh start thereís hope not immediately dashed by the first issue.

My Two CentsÖ

Seems fine to start with. Has more of a EMH or Avengers Assemble feel to it.

Coates started with him on one knee bleeding, I'll take this as a good sign. Lol

Also good to see he's 'leading' an Avengers team. When Aaron writes it he usually defers to Cap. Lol

I agree, it was interesting to see Cap taking field direction from TíChalla. Might have missed it, but I donít recall seeing that before?

Never ďNeverĒ having TíChalla appear in the MCU again is wrong and Iíd sooner see the MCU replaced with another iteration that could include a new TíChalla.

BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER Rumored To Introduce


How would I feel, the writer asks? Betrayed! Betrayed by the creatives we entrusted TíChalla to. Angry that they are empowered to hijack this 55 year old character, more my contemporary that theirs, and consign him to oblivion in an emotional overreaction that doubles down on an already unbearable tragedy.

My Two Cents!

Peace,

Mont
