Whatever happened to many of the MARVEL heroes fighting together against a common enemy?

That's act three (Secret Wars), like any other story.

TRO is act two.

Is it out Doom or just an alternate reality Doctor Doom?

It's a future 616 Doom.  Or more specifically, current Dr. Doom after having run through the events of the entire series all over again in another role.

In a previous New Avengers issue (during TRO), he and Molecule Man went back to the beginning of the Incursion issue.  So, essentially there have been two Dr. Dooms running around in New Avengers.  The Doom that would become Rabum Alal, and Rabum Alal.

Rabum Alal is Dr. Doom's Kang.

Admittedly, I've missed a few things here....DOOM!?!  Rabum Alal is Dr. Doom?  If this is so it further diminishes T'Challa's already pyrrhic DoomWar "victory" and confirms that all of this was really about Reed and Victor the whole time.  T'Challa's been Hickman's chump from jump!

My two cents.

Peace,

Uh no, if anyone, it further shows that Reed was always the biggest chump in this story.  Out-shined by his daughter (and future son), turned the whole hero community against him, the rest of the Illuminati's lives are ruined, they failed to stop the incursions, and now the guy who he outright told everyone to ignore, to withhold all knowledge of the incursion situation, could be the start of the entire problem. 

What happened with T'Challa, Black Bolt, and the Cabal is small potatoes compared to this screw up.

As for BP, it's no longer just a "will Hickman elevate Black Panther" question.

He has put far too much emotional investment in both T'Challa and Namor to have it all be resolved by Doom, or Reed, or Steve, or Tony.


The story fails if T'Challa and possibly Namor aren't prominent in the end of this story.  They have lost the most, and Reed has lost nothing.  Neither has Doom, neither has Steve.  And Tony will probably do more harm than good right now because he's inverted.

Good stories end with worthwhile payoff.  If Hickman wants this story to be remembered as anything other than a failure, the payoff must come with T'Challa in the spotlight.

I'm not sure that Mack is gone. Though I would have preferred losing him over Trip. Granted they didn't do much with Trip, but at least he does more than Mack to me.

Mack isn't gone, but Trip definitely is. And that ticked me off.

Black Panther / Re: Which writer diminished T'Challa the most?
« on: February 10, 2015, 05:17:45 pm »
I am not saying it will reward us for our patience.   Actually,  I doubt  most here will be happy,  but I just don't think you can know until it is over with.   Suspect it,  have confidence,  yes,  But for all we know T'challa is on the last page waking up from the surgery to remove the tumor Priest have him.  And everything been a dream.


I totally doubt that, but we do know that Bast's prophecy has to be completed. The whole thing, not just the agonizing parts.  Now, whether that will live up to the years of tragedy, beats me.  It's very possible, but more than anything else, I'm pretty sure Hickman will be known more for the fall than the return to status quo or more. That is, unless he performs some feats in Secret Wars that eclipses anything he's done before.

People focus on the negative, especially when the status quo of the character is usually meant to be positive, and there has been a whole lot of negative done on purpose in this run.

And I say that as someone who is liking it.

Plus,  I wonder if this is all Hickman or is he under orders to do some of these things?  Did he decide to destroy Atilla and release the gas creating more Inhumans or was he told to do that as Marvel movies change the importance of the Inhumans? Did he choose to kill Shuri or was he told to by the next BP writer?

That's a decent question.  I don't think so though; I think this was is on Hickman.

Hickman isn't the first person to "destroy" Wakanda And then bring out back at the end of the story.  Busiek,  Fabian N. bought write stores where the villain reshaped the entire world , including Wakanda, into the villain's play thing.   (Morgana Le Fey and Lady Sphinx). But when the story ended,  it was all back to normal.   Stalin enslaved the earth, including Wakanda then destroyed the universe in Marvel Universe: The End.  Then he put it all back. Until we see the end of this story,  we don't know if he intends Wakanda 's destruction or Shuri's death to be permanent.

Fraction outright killed T'Challa like a punk and I think destroyed Wakanda too.  As did Bendis.  Both of them reverted it.

Black Panther / Re: New Storm Ongoing Title

I meant they complained about the marriage.

Oh ok, then I agree.  However, I think a big question these failed X-titles, including Storm's, is asking is:

Should Marvel really be listening to that insular fanbase?

Storm is VERY interesting on her own. There is a lot about the character for a writer to play with. Pak should have explored the untapped aspects of the character rather than go the nostalgic route.

The reason for the title's poor sales has nothing to do with her marriage with the Black Panther being annulled. Most of her fanbase was upset about it, actually. She was a very popular before that marriage and many people viewed her as being interesting. Pak should have started out with big and exciting stories out of the gate with compelling villains readers would have found interesting rather than the "slow burn" start he took.

Fact is in the X-Men titles where Storm is written in a team dynamic, there simply is not space to explore every aspect of the character. She has the most potential of all the X-Men for unique storytelling which actually created a need to be a "Storm" solo title. Again, Pak needed to do that instead of retreading old ground from Storm-centric stories that have been told ad naseum in the x-books. All he needed to do was create a world for her outside of the X-Men much like Thor, Hulk, Captain America and Iron Man have a world in their own solo titles separate from the Avengers book they serve on. All he needed to do was create characters to fill the roles of friends and foes that would have been unique to her book and, again, expand on the untapped aspects of the character's history.

Every place discussing this article that has had Storm fans in it have proven the opposite.

I get why this is a big thing,

But Hickman also destroyed Atlantis, Attilan and turned Namor and Strange into arguable villains, so it's not like he solo'd out T'Challa/Wakanda. It was pretty much mess with everyone without a title.


Actually, that's not true.  He solo'd out T'Challa in one way: T'Challa was outright told, "hey, your job is to be Wakanda's salvation after the thing worse than AvX happens". And as shown numerous times before, Hickman doesn't forget his foreshadowing.

But alas, yeah, this is the first time Wakanda has truly lost. I'd rather it be a bunch of cosmic level tyrants than Doom.

Black Panther / Re: New Avengers, New Black Panther, New Black Power???

All of the points you guys raised are valid. But? Truth?

It's better than nothing, and TChalla is getting better and better showings.  We have to be willing to be patient but still demand quality depictions leavened with some realism

Honestly, I don't think patience is needed. For those not liking the story, find other stories that are more to your liking until it's over and the new direction begins. If there's a suitable payoff, then go ahead and do the back-reading. If not, then hey, congrats, you dodged a bullet.

Either way, the MCU and the build up towards Black Panther's appearances will go on with or without Hickman's input.

Eh don't expect things to get better for anyone in this story, BP included.

Hickman already said the next 10 issues is going to be nonstop misery for the MU.

If anything, it'd be the wrong time to think anyone is going to be noble or rise into prominence, not even Reed. Despite him "leading"

My problems with T'challa portrayal aside up to this point Avengers #40 was fye.

Also as much as I want it to be complete. I'm on "show me the body" right now..


You get banned yet I see the usual folks going wild with nothing happening to them

Yep. Only people banned were Moose and Trident. Really opaque move there by the mod; not going to do much at all.

Hundreds of police officers turned their backs on a screen showing New York City Mayor Bill de Blasio as he spoke at the funeral of one of two officers killed last week in what has been called an "assassination."

The funeral at the Christ Tabernacle Church, in the Glendale neighborhood of Queens, was broadcast to thousands of police who gathered outside.

The killing of Officers Rafael Ramos and Wenjian Liu came amid heightened tensions between the police and the mayor over what some police saw as a lack of support for the force.

The atmosphere was mostly respectful, but there were scattered signs of protest even before the police officers action when the mayor spoke.


In his speech, the mayor seemed to try to reach out to police, honoring not only Ramos, but the entire NYPD.

After directing his remarks to the Ramos family, he said he wanted to "extend my condolences to another family -- the family of the NYPD -- that is hurting so deeply right now."

The night after Ramos and Liu were shot, officers gathered at the hospital where they had been taken turned teir backs on de Blasio when he arrived.

De Blasio created controversy with his response to demonstrations about police relations with minorities, after a grand jury declined to indict an NYPD officer in the death of Eric Garner, a Staten Island man who died after he was put in a chokehold during an arrest for selling loose cigarettes.

The mayor, whose wife is black, said he has spoken to his mixed race teen son about how he should act if he is stopped by police.

In speaking about protesters who were arrested and charged with assaulting police during a demonstration in New York, de Blasio used the word "allegedly," which some in the NYPD seemed to take as a slight.

Patrolmens Benevolent Association president Patrick Lynch and de Blasio have been locked in a public battle over treatment of officers following the grand jury's decision.

The week before the shooting of Ramos and Liu, the PBA leader suggested police officers sign a petition demanding that the mayor not attend their funerals should they die on the job.

Vox Populi / Re: "WHAT DO WE WANT? DEAD COPS!"
« on: December 24, 2014, 02:52:15 pm »
Death sentence. 

That's what we are talking about.

It doesn't matter how minor the infraction, or if there is an infraction at all.  The cops can kill at will and if you dare try to investigate, you are branded a traitor.

What do you think of the view that the killing of the two NYPD cops was a valient act of revolutionary self-defense against an oppressive occupying force?

Non-existent outside of the fringes. A strawman built by those who don't want to see any change in how police treat black people.
