OK, pop quiz.  How will Marvel react to Coates' continual slide into irrelevancy?

1) Double-down on him, and insist that it's the readers fault.
2) Artificially inflate sales with special variant covers, retail incentives, and crossovers.
3) Relaunch, baby! But still with Coates writing.
4) Make T'Challa an Inhuman, and the HSH some sort of Terrigen variant.
5) Cancel the book, and blame the fans.
6) Actually get someone who can write a comic on the title.

You forgot option 7

Tgeyvput the MA, government, chang, stuff in background. Wakanda isnt o fire. BP isnt getting lectured.

Less blsck dysfunctiom, less sells


Time to double down on lesbiabs, man hating, and wakanda burning forvsales!

All the woke reviewers are already bored with this "boring generic comic book "

Relaunch tge book with a black trans writer next, find out tchalla actually wants to be tchallina

Don't give marvel any ideas..

I would want then to crack down on him and tell him to write T'Challa write or get out while simultaneously getting a new creative team to write a second ongoing

O'm praying for option 6 because Coates wack a$$ needs to be gone from the BP mythos sooner rather than later.

How any self respecting so-called BP mythos enthusiast can actually buy his rubbish iteration of T'Challa and Wakanda defies logic.

And to make matters worse, he's totally ruined Shuri as a character with this bargain basement Crow rip off Grio nonsense.

Phuck Coates and his false narrative laden agenda idiocy.

During Priest's run, his outfit could take all those bullets, now, it seems to be failing.   He needs to go back to his original tailer.

Hudlin's version could take those rounds AND then T'Challa would blow up their gun's too.. Why is coatesverse trying to chump T'Challa every chance they get?

Clearly, he can't "farce push" bullets, and hence is helpless.

How did bullets tear his suit, if it withstood a rocket blast IN Coates' own book?

I don't know about any of those, but this is the inevitable outcome:

8.) Coates quits, Marvel relaunches and puts a new writer to steer the ship.

Soon as issue 12's sales were revealed, i stated our goal for season 2 should be to have sales drop to 20k by the halfway mark of season 2 (issue 18).  Ideally you want it sub-20k by then.

That happens and that's a f*ck you to Coates (and his supporters) that we aren't supporting his sh*t, with still 6 months to go.  If he knows no one wants to read his sh*t nor his satellite books, the writing will be on the wall.

Ultimately, we'll have to make him quit.

Because Coates will contradict himself without any care. He claims he wants to use continuity or whatever and then will just inject whatever bullsh*t into his run regardless of how illogical it is.

I thought we were going full Orisha, god mythology for this arc...


Re: Future of the Book

Movie is coming out in a handful of months and we have seen with the dedication to Carol (for more dedication than BP... carol gets an immediate entry in MvC but BP is DLC? da f*ck?) that they are not going to give up on an important (minority) character with ties to MCU.

I imagine we finish out this season, get to #24, and I imagine Coates simply goes "this was an exciting experience and i am glad I have done it but it is time I move on" type of thing. He is currently writing a book and didn't he get a university job?

Then Marvel relaunches with original numbering.

The telling thing is... Marvel knows BP CAN sell. It was selling at Wolverine numbers for awhile (something soemone like Carol never did). Selling better than Bendis books. There is a sizable audience out there.

Do they go with one of their tried and true A/B list writers for the book, regardless of race politics? The Bendis, Aarons, Waids, Soules of the world? And show us they actually think the character has a chance to make that sales leap?

Do they go lazy and put a "name" on the book like Ewing or Walker? and guarantee 20K sales for 12 issues? Show us that they don't really care and are just giving lip service to the character?

Or do they get "fancy" and chase another black literary name? That is what they keep doing with Carol (and failing). And what htey love to do with their C list white woman properties. Do we get more Coates, Yonas, Gays of the world? And get the big spike and quick fall again with sh*t writing?
