I think it was CJP who opined the more popular T’Challa were to become, the more likely writers would be to screw around with him.

Happy Holidays fellow Wakandans!

Here’s hoping Marvel/Feige comes to their senses, heeds the wishes of the people and does the right thing…#RecastTChalla

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 T’Challa’s death and reintroduce him in mid a post credit scenes a la CJP’s “The Client” 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 Ridley’s rendition, but then I gave Coates about 4 issues before disinvesting, so I’m cautiously optimistic. I struggle though with the reduction of T’Challa’s monarchy. Part of his power was that he could have 10 N’Yami 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 that’s a bad thing, necessarily!?! Perhaps Ridley overplayed the sleeper spies as assassins to balance out T’Challa’s 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 T’Challa experienced in Liss’ surprisingly decent run. T’Challa should need to rely on his Black Panther powers and innate abilities more than ever, even more than he did in South Africa (Panther’s Quest) during his search for Ramonda. I’m here for the possibilities. Hopefully Ridley doesn’t disappoint!?!

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

"Marvel’s new Black Panther series reveals a new T’Challa with new challenges - Polygon" https://www.polygon.com/platform/amp/reviews/22801291/black-panther-comic-series-new-avengers

Quote
Coates’ T’Challa, far from a swaggering swashbuckler, was guilt-ridden, pensive, cerebral … 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 T’Challa 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 we’ve seen him accomplish so much more with others — it’s galling and frustrating. Yet for some, maybe for many, what I call frustration might be preferable.

T’Challa 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 Coates’ 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 T’Challa’s characterization. Long known as the most unshakably noble of Marvel characters, well before Coates, clearly this author didn’t dig into who pre-Coates T’Challa was and flat out wrongly states that he willingly joined the Illuminati. ‘Laughable’ is an apt characterization of this writer’s understanding of T’Challa’s character.

——-——-S P O I L E R S—————-

So Ridley appears to be taking T’Challa 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 it’s something to explore in a calculated way now? Strategically placed sleeper agents is not the worst idea, but T’Challa would not give them assassination authority, that’s Hatute Zeraze stuff, overplayed as T’Challa sanctioned protocol should an agent deem warranted by a threat to Wakanda.

I can see a Wakandan parliamentary government as a T’Challa approved, Wakanda embraced, development though Ridley’s T’Challa hardly seems to “approve” 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 T’Challa? All in all, an intriguing debut, competent and visually compelling if not immediately encouraging (lot of previous trauma) yet, as with any fresh start there’s hope not immediately dashed by the first issue.

My Two Cents…

Black Panther / Re: NEW BLACK PANTHER COMIC BOOK #1 Preview

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 T’Challa. Might have missed it, but I don’t recall seeing that before?

Never “Never” having T’Challa appear in the MCU again is wrong and I’d sooner see the MCU replaced with another iteration that could include a new T’Challa.

BLACK PANTHER: WAKANDA FOREVER Rumored To Introduce


How would I feel, the writer asks? Betrayed! Betrayed by the creatives we entrusted T’Challa 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,

Supa Dupa creative as usual brother SI. You’re most likely right in saying Marvel would not pursue anything we would dream up for BP2 or recasting T’Challa, but there’s bad karma around the production and they really need to rethink the direction if indeed they plan on killing off T’Challa. There’s a thin line between bold and foolish!

My Two Cents.

Peace,

Praying Letitia has a speedy and full recovery.

As for the production, there seems to be a negative karma around it that warrants attention?

Do right by T’Challa and his long suffering fans! Go ahead with the World of Wakanda take for BP 2, but drop any indication of T’Challa’s death. My recommendation remains…The King is on sabbatical, a critical fact-finding mission abroad…

Mid-credit sequence:

Montage with a mysteriously garbed male figure (T’Challa BP) delivering no less than three beat downs;

Voice over…

- “We will have an understanding between us!“
- “You have been marked by Kimoyo, there is no escape for you.”
- “We have much work to do here!”

After credit sequence:

- Medium long shot from behind, interior, tracking male figure walking down school hallway
- Medium close up of male hand, opens door and enters classroom to non-distinct student chatter
- Medium shot of back, male places valise on desk writes name high on blackboard…
- Zoom in on name ”Luke Charles” cut to black.

C’mon Marvel, do right by T’Challa and his long suffering fans!

Peace,

This sounds like a premise for a short arc where T’Challa’s motives are quickly revealed to be cunning, brilliant and necessary for the protection of Wakanda and ultimately the world. Unfortunately, I’m afraid Ridley may try to drag this storyline out over 12 or 24 issues, a la Coates whose two big ideas were to deconstruct Wakanda as an enlightened society, instead having it appear as misogynistic and intolerant as everywhere else; while subsequently presenting Wakandans as intergalactic colonists and slavers. I really hope Ridley has more than two ideas for Black Panther and limits this first one to a four issue arc.

Introducing a new, Wakandan hero over a 4 issue arc that still features the titular hero is fine by me, but enough of T’Challa being a guest in his own book. Re-establishing T’Challa as The Black Panther, a warrior-king, national icon, international emissary and kick-ass superhero is what’s called for and with some strong storylines to that end who knows, they might even sell a few books?

My Two Cents!

Peace,
