Agents was decent. Pretty basic, but I have no complaints.

Best of T'Challa









The rest of this comic book was needless filler comprised of busywork for unnecessary team members. Art work was nice and did the Black Panther justice but this episodic adventuring will get old real fast. What we should be reading is how the Black Panther accompanied by Nakia, Okoye, specialists, field operatives and a handful of Wakandan redshirts show off T'challa's abilities, skills and tech instead of some non sequitur multi purpose team of non-listers engaged in mediocre adventures and pedantic conversation. Transposing these generic Agents to fully fleshed out Wakndans changes everything especially if they are not written as characters who just happened to be another shade of white. #BLACK PANTHER DESERVES BETTER.

More so, ib the Avengers book, T'Challa days the team is going to be surveillance and espionage for the Avengers, yivrnusnsone soy Characters and add in kasper and another Wakandan such as Akili. Or show T'Challa being two steps ahead making thrbbof plays and having the team question why they were chosen snf and what T'Challas intentions are. And let Okoye be his ride or die chick and handle business and not be getting captured sll the time

Absolutely spot on Kip. I've said and I say again. These stories would work so much better if it were Wakandans doing the action. or better yet the Black Panther soloing it. This way the writer would have to be imaginative enough to create some feats that haven't been done by either of the forementioned.

Ok, let's just skip the next two pages while maintaining chronological order and get to what in my opinion is the best part of the story.











Good opening; nice tech; purposeful introspection; meaningful dialogue, all which may incline one to think that some of Marvels comic book staff are indeed paying attention to the criticisms lobbed by BP enthusiast. None the less, while T'Challa does in fact give a palatable response to Okoye there is still no real reason for this not being a Wakandan team of skilled operatives.

The next couple of Deadpool pages were seen in the preview... as for the following pages of Wasp and Roz doing a generic fight scene we can skip that too, after all we're for the Black Panther.






BP asking DP for help?!? These are the times when you know the writer is taking a jab at us.



Not to mention it doesn't look as if Black Panther needs any assistance. Jab much?




Uh oh, spoke too soon.



Ok, everyone has to get some game time.



Oh no. Not the old knock every team member out at ounce play.



Wouldn't this have worked much better if T'Challa was solo and deftly handled the hand to hand; wasn't overpowered, thus rendered unconscious and instead absorbed the power and simply walked in and met with Fury and his new LMDs. IJS.

Overall it was a readable comic.

AoW was fine. I mean this a team book not a BP Solo so whereas I would love to see T'Challa Solo them, you can't expect that to happen. Abd I don't think T'Challa actually needed help from wade or Janet, but rather he was telling Wade to stop talking.

As fir the scene with T'Challa and Okoye at the start. His reason is sound and reinforces why we the fans would theorize why he is using seemingly random people. Wakanda isn't going to risk it's people and these people are expendable,  which plays on Priest panther.

No doubt BP-AoW was readable. The point being T'Challa not needing to be in team books where the action and feats have to be distributed among other heroes and heroines. The Black Panther has suffered enough from writers not fully investing in him and his world to have to bear having his potential truncated, squandered or redistributed.

I don't think it was necessary under the given circumstances for the Black Panther to have those words written for him to utter.




T'Challa in-story explanation works due to it plausibility. In reality the writer could have created half a dozen plausible reasons for using Wakndans and given the title character, supporting characters and his country more shine. Also this could have negative in-story repercussions if word of this reached the ears of agents, especially those like the Wasp.
