Spoilers!!!!!!!!!











Damn SI:

You are the man!  I am one who was very disappointed in this, in part because I also thought this was the last ish before the Skrull War arc.  I was also annoyed by Killmonger's constant 'You can't beat me' rant.  I won't harp on the "Over the Edge" encounter between the two, but T'Challa's knee smash did invoke a little deja vu.  And you're right, the groin punch knee combo is not desperation but an aggressive, deliberate tactical maneuver I've contemplated many times but thankfully have never needed to employ. I wish KM's line had been, "Mutha-f--."

Anyway, thank you.  I guess I was too distracted to consider that T'Challa was buying time which of course makes perfect sense seeing his responsibility to Shuri and his concern for Monica.  I was hoping to see more of a beat down by BP before using the armor and was again annoyed by KM's introduction of this stage of the battle.  You're insight allowed me to reconsider the ish and have better expectations for the next, which in my mind shows the value of this forum.

Interesting to me:

We now know w/o doubt that the BP "abbott," I like that, is reinforced with vibranium and that T'Challa was Ross' "Client."  Interested to see the relationship between Erik and Ross/the US play out.  Nice back plot.  Does the mention of "The Crew" suggest that Kasper et al might be in play?  Are they registered?  I liked seeing Zuri, not sure about the age.  Did not see the tie-in with the X-men cross over apes thing coming.  OK, but I hope KM is not the ape's puppet or some lesser version of his original self as employed by the Mandarin Iron Man Annual #5. I want a definitive beat down!   A thought occurred as Shuri warmed to her "friend," if out of harm's way Cannibal is able to absorb Shuri, could we be looking at Reg's version of Malice?

I met Tom Breevort in Philly at the Wizard and he gave Reg and Axel Alonzo all the credit for BP.  He said he thought I was going to like what's coming. I'm a RH fan and I don't know about these rumors?  But it is starting to feel a little like a circle being completed.  Here's hoping for that a$$ whupin'!   

Peace,

I agree with Jenn completely,  yet like Blue none of the points she raises came to my mind on the initial read which I enjoyed.  Instead, I came away from it with a sort of deja vu, noting comparisons to Priest's run, particularly the length of the run and parallels to the "The Once and future King."  It kinda of reinforced in me the feeling that this run is intended to replace the former and made me wonder what some of Reg's detractors would think of his take had it taken place right after McGregor's?  

I guess we'll never know the answer to that!?!

Peace,

I liked it too Blue.  The action did wane some but I was into the story as well.  I just met Jill Wagner who played Krista, at the Philly Car show and she told me that Blade cost about $1 million per episode.  Bottom line, that probably was too much with the show being broadcast on Spike TV.

"In BLACK PANTHER vol. 2, # 21, page 7, Priest recapped both the IM annual and OVER THE EDGE issues and the fact that those were cases where he was raised from the dead and animated via the Mandarin and Klaw, respectively.  So he wasn't quite himself I would say;-)
"

Hi all:

SPOILERS!!!

I went through my Priest era collection and sadly found that I didn't have v.II, #21.  Not that I doubt Bob, who I recognize as most knowlegeable on BP for everything up to and including the Priest era, (Bob knows I'm a big fan, especially of his run with Sal on BP).  However if you read the "Over the Hedge issue" (#6) Marvel clearly establishes Kilmonger as the real deal, he was very much himself, and sets this up as a definitive battle between T'challa and he.  In fact, on page 10 (there are no page numbers so I counted the pages w/o ads) Killmonger explains how BP's second encounter with him, referenced by an editor's note as having occurred in Iron Man Annual #5, was actually with a "Simalicrum" constructed by the Mandarin with whom he made a pact to see how T'challa would react to his return.  On page 9 Killmonger actully refers to the Wakandan boy Kantu that actually saved T'challa in their first encounter.

I don't think this is a case where Preist messed up, especially since he addressed it in v.II, #21.  I think he used dramatic license because he wanted to foster this notion of T'challa having a foe he'd never been able to truly beat.  I don't know if that's because of the flak he was getting for making BP, "too powerful" or if he simply had this McGregor-ish notion of T'challa as this ultimately, vulnerable superhero.  The whole aneurism plot and the fact that I never saw Preist as one to cave to pressure leads me to believe the latter.  While I did not like the aneurism idea, this is in no way a criticism of Preist or McGregor, I loved the majority of their work.  I do believe however, that Marvel set-up the "Over the Hedge" showdown between BP and Killmonger to resolve the first encounter between the two, over Warrior Falls in Wakanda (I think that's where it happened? Bob?)   

Anyway, it's a very satisfying story.  I highly recommend it!

Happy Holidays all!

Peace,

Mont

What up SI!  I picked the book up in a back issue bin after I got the "Head's up" from Catch 22's post.  If you can't find
it at your local LCS maybe they can run a search on it for you?

Good luck,

Kudos and utmost respect to RH.  I am not a zombie fan and did not
expect to buy let alone like the zombie issues but a funny thing
happened while I was at the LCS...I really liked it! 

If anyone ever doubted how engulfed Reg is into BP folklore......
recognize that he's toying with the idea of King Solomon's Frogs
being sentient beings who are playing possum.  That just tripped
me out!   :D

SI, I don't post often and lost my rank during the HEF re-launch but I remember that you also wanted this resolution.  The book was published in 1996 so to me it's like some unearthed treasure.  Though DD got the majority of the cover it's really much more a BP story than a DD story.

Black Panther / BP vs Killmonger
« on: July 02, 2007, 11:08:31 am »
Mad Props to Catch 22.  In the link provided under Panther Sightings I found a book from the late 90's called "Over the Edge."  Issue #6 has a story teaming BP and DD where BP squares off against Killmonger and...SPOILERS.....Pick it up if you can before going any further unless you want to be spoiled.











BP lays a smackdown on Killmonger, definitively defeating him in combat.  It's hard to imagine that Priest was not aware of this issue when stating that BP had never defeated Killmonger.  Perhaps he ignored it.  However it was the real Killmonger, unlike the referenced doppleganger from Iron Man Annual #5.

Black Panther / Re: Who Created Vibraxas?
« on: March 02, 2007, 12:07:42 pm »
I was just looking at my FForce copies recently and Tom Breevort was identified as writer/co-writer on the series initially.  I would think that he was the
one who created Vibraxas.

Big Sal & Bob fan!

Jim Lee

Who's the guy who did the French TPB cover that was included in
Secret War #1.  His painted style was awesome!

Liking Michael Turner's take also!

Black Panther / Panther's Past
« on: February 28, 2007, 03:13:47 pm »
Hello all!  It's been a while and I just realized that my "Hero Member" status didn't roll over so I'm a "newbie"
again!

Anyway, I wanted to draw your attention to an issue of Jungle Action (#11) from Don McGregor's run.  I just
picked it up from a back issue bin at one of my LCS's.  This was by far the best issue of JA that I've read/seen.
Beautifully written and illustrated and featuring T'Challa leading a raid on N'Jadaka territory and laying the smack-
down on Baron Macabre.  I always appreciated McGregor's work with BP but like many here, haven't particularly
cared for the long sufferring, frequently battered depiction of BP.  I'm still looking to complete "Panther's Rage"
but so far, this was the best of them all.  if you don't have it, run don't walk to your LCS and pick up JA #11.

Peace,

Mont
