Quote from: Priest
Actually, now that I think about it, Denys worked on Panther, Reginald Hudlin worked on Panther, and I worked on Panther. Marvel should create a Milestone Black Panther book. I'm quite sure, if it wouldn't blow up Milestone's deal with DC, we'd all be eager to see what could be done with the character in a creatively uncompromised environment. We all dearly love this character.

I was also introducing a paradigm shift to the way Panther was to be portrayed; somebody had to give voice to the expectation of a dull and colorless character who always got his butt kicked or who was overshadowed by Thor and Iron Man suddenly knocking out Mephisto with one punch. I mean, he runs into the room, Ross says, "Should we call the Avengers?!" Panther says, "Why?" and just decks the guy.

To me, that's Black Panther. It's not arrogance, it's competence.

Yeah.... I could get behind that. I would love to see a milestone Black Panther, with Priest, Hudlin, and Redjack all there able to flex without editorial oversight or worry. Also the second quote is one people need to remember

Black Panther: A New Wakandan Hero is Being Teased By Marvel
Marvel's new solicitations have revealed that Black Panther's Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda will be joining The Last Annihilation with a new hero.

BY KEVIN ERDMANN



In Marvel Comics' new September solicitations, a Black Panther hero is teased to be getting a bigger place in the spotlight, joining the fray in the publisher's next big cosmic event known as The Last Annihilation. The Dread Dormammu has returned, manifesting himself in the cosmos thanks to Ego the Living Planet and an ancient cult of Skrulls. Naturally, it's going to be all hands on deck to keep the galaxy safe, and that includes the newly reformed Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda, seeing the Maroons' M'Baku assisting T'Challa and the Guardians of the Galaxy in the epic fight to come.

In the recently concluded Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda storyline from Ta-Nehisi Coates, the empire had been corrupted into one built on oppression, taking prisoners from worlds they conquered and turning them into slaves without memory. These slaves were known as the Nameless. While T'Challa found himself becoming one of them in the run's beginning, he was rescued and subsequently joined the resistance movement known as the Maroons, led by its commanders M'Baku and Nakia. However, these versions of the characters took their names from the original characters, being inspired by their heroic acts of legend.


While Nakia gave her life in the resulting battle between Wakanda Prime and the Intergalactic Empire, M'Baku fought by T'Challa's side in the final battle when the evil Emperor N'Dajaka was defeated, leading to the Black Panther's rule becoming much bigger on a galactic scale. As a result, M'Baku has apparently been aiding T'Challa with reforming the Intergalactic Empire, and he'll be joining him in this new battle with The Last Annihilation.

Here's the cover art and solicit information for the upcoming tie-in issue from Evan Narcisse and German Peralta:




LASTANNIHWA2021001-Tan-COV
THE LAST ANNIHILATION: WAKANDA #1
EVAN NARCISSE (W) ē GERMŃN PERALTA (A)
Cover by PHILIP TAN

VARIANT COVER BY Ernanda Souza
With the universe itself at stake, Black Panther enlists the might of the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda to help stop the dreaded Dormammu! And leading the Wakandan forces is none other than the legendary MíBaku! Will TíChalla and MíBaku be able to defeat Dormammuís army of Mindless Ones? Donít miss this critical chapter of the LAST ANNIHILATION event as a new hero emerges!
40 PGS./ONE-SHOT/Rated T+ Ö$4.99


If the synopsis is any indication, it certainly looks like M'Baku is being set up to be the face of the reformed Intergalactic Empire as its brand new hero, which should be pretty exciting. Actor Winston Duke's take on the character in the MCU's Black Panther was a major hit, and M'Baku has become a fan-favorite character since the 2018 film. Seeing as how the Maroons based their uniforms off of the Black Panther himself, it would certainly be cool to see him evolve into a sort of Cosmic Panther while T'Challa remains the Black Panther of Wakanda Prime.

In any case, it certainly seems as though The Last Annihilation and the threat of Dormamu will be a trial by fire for M'Baku. While he's already proven himself to be quite the capable fighter and warrior leading the Maroons, this new event will be the first major crossover the Intergalactic Empire will be a part of. Here's hoping he and his forces are prepared to join the Black Panther and face the power of the Dread Dormammu when the time comes.


https://screenrant.com/black-panther-last-annihilation-marvel-tease-mbaku/


I don't like the wording "Black Panther enlists the might of the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda" almost as if he has to ask instead command and lead.

The question is will they show the correct expanse of Emperor T'Challa's five galaxy spanning empire? Nu M'Baku as regent of the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda makes sense and if T'Cahlla resurrects Nu Nakia as he did Shuri that would have great storytelling potential. Not only is she a great love interest but it helps play out the complications of a love triangle between Nu Nakia, T'Challa and Storm.

While I am doubtful we will get much I. E. of W in Ridley's new ongoing, this Last Annihilation story could be a good starting point to put the right spin on the empire. I wouldn't be the least surprised if this doesn't lead to a limited series or new ongoing entitled Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda with  Narcisse at the helm. If they really want to funk it up, bring in Redjack to write a third series Panther's Prey showing why T'Challa the Black Panther is the most dangerous man alive... with five galaxies under his influence.

THE VIBRANIUM TRUMPET



The Vibranium Trumpet   *** Sounding the alarm... ***    The Vibranium Trumpet   *** Sounding the alarm... ***

BREAKING NEWS...BREAKING NEWS...

The X-Men NEED a New Black Panther and Storm Marriage to Save Krakoa
In light of the X-Men's recent cosmic exploits, a reunion between Storm and Black Panther would be of great benefit to Wakanda and Krakoa.

BY NABEEL GABER



WARNING: The following contains spoilers for S.W.O.R.D. #6 by Al Ewing, Valerio Schiti, Marte Gracia & VC's Ariana Maher, on sale now.

While the X-Men and Marvel's mutants have been hated and feared by most of the Marvel Universe for decades, it seems like the world, along with the rest of the Solar System, has generally accepted their nation Krakoa's presence. However, some nations have blatantly rejected Krakoa, including Wakanda. While this might pose a serious issue for the mutants, it's a problem that could be solved by reuniting Storm and Black Panther to cement a political alliance between their two nations.

Wakanda's rejection of Krakoa has been prevalent since 2019's House of X #5, by Jonathan Hickman and Pepe Larraz. Among the few nations who rejected Krakoa's treaty, Wakanda stuck out, claiming they had no need for Krakoa's miracle drugs. Additionally, in the recent S.W.O.R.D. #6, the Intergalactic Empire of Wakanda rejected Krakoa's offer of mysterium to different galactic societies, claiming they did not need "mutant metal."

These claims are almost exactly the same, showing a sense of Wakandan pride and a hint of disdain for the mutant nation. These rejections are glaring, since they're both marked in red, emphasizing how Wakanda, especially, won't work with Krakoa. This could be a problem, considering Wakanda's immense power as a nation. Recent events, however, open up the possibility for cooperation between the two nations. When Storm is declared the Regent of Mars, for example, she refers to herself as Hadari Yao, a Wakandan goddess.

The name itself means "Walker of the Clouds," a goddess who preserves the balance of all natural things. Storm was dubbed Hadari Yao by the Wakandans in 2017's Black Panther #17, by Ta Nehisi-Coates and Chris Sprouse. This specific name serves as a reminder of Storm's connection with Wakanda. Even after her marriage to T'Challa dissolved, Ororo maintained a strong bond with the Wakandans, seen as a goddess and a queen among the nation's people.

Due to this history as the former Queen of Wakanda, Storm has an advantage that other mutants simply don't. In using her name of Hadari Yao, Storm demonstrates that she hasn't forgotten her link with Wakanda. With this reminder, it's possible that Storm could reunite with T'Challa, resurrecting a relationship that never truly died to bring Wakanda and Krakoa together as natural political allies. Ororo and T'Challa clearly miss each other as well, making this a personal and political opportunity.

It's true that things have been strained with Storm and Black Panther, especially after Ororo stole Skybreaker, a Wakandan sword, in 2020's Marauders #13, by Vita Ayala and Matteo Lolli. Even so, T'Challa showed then that he was willing to work with Storm, and he would do anything for her. Now that Storm has such an important position, she has the ability to reach out and reconcile with T'Challa, uniting Krakoa and Wakanda.

Whether their reunion is romantic or merely political, Storm and Black Panther would be the only two people who could connect their two nations. This union would be perfect, as Krakoa would gain a powerful new ally, while Wakanda would regain their former queen and goddess.




Storm's use of her Wakandan goddess name, juxtaposed with Wakanda's rejection of Krakoa's mysterium, could hint at a reunion between Ororo and T'Challa in the near future. The two rulers might not remarry, but there could at least be a conversation surrounding their personal and political relationship.

Even if they don't get back together, it's still possible that Storm and Black Panther will form an official treaty between Krakoa and Wakanda, restoring peace between the two nations. This kind of peace is sorely needed between Krakoa and Wakanda, considering the immense power of both nations.

Any union, even a political one, would be deeply impactful for lasting peace. The recent Black Panther run is a great example, as Storm has often appeared, not just to briefly reconcile with T'Challa, but also to help the nation of Wakanda.

Similarly, if Storm and Black Panther were to remarry, it might serve a higher purpose, uniting Krakoa and Wakanda in a way that cements Krakoa's place in the world. This political alliance would prove helpful, considering the looming danger of "Inferno" in the coming months.

Again with Using T'Challas popularity to raise Storm up with no benefit at all to T'Challa... No thanks, if they want to elevate storms do It within the x books and stop using T'Challas mythos to develop storm because x office is too lazy to invest in actually fleshing out her history on its own

Ohhhh, I don't know Ezyo, they seem to have a lot in common. (Expressed with levity and mirth.)

Both are newly crowned monarchs...





Both have intimate relationships with Eternity...





They both share a deep spiritual connection with Bast...





And great power at hand...





Poor writing and lack of of vision remain at fault for the discontinuance of the marriage between Black Panther and Storm. Like it or not there is much that can be done with the two of them given the dimensions and proximity of their current circumstances. Black Panther and Storm haven't even been seen interacting at the Hellfire Gala. Ororo needs to update T'Challa on her current status and what possible political and economical impact their new metal mysterium could have in relationship to vibranium.

Hickman, himself, is in an excellent position to flesh out much of the details surrounding, what must certainly be at the very least, a cosmic discourse between the two of them.

What If... T'Challa and Ororo only pretended  to annul their nuptials as part of a master plan (probably his after they were given a vision of the future by Bast) to orchestrate a brighter future for both human and mutant kind. Maybe this is the real reason the Watcher was at their wedding. Something to think about.

Seriously though, all things considered, this would be a major waste of an opportunity if in the very near future the Black Panther and Storm did not communicate.

And they shouldn't, there's  no way this was so massive plan, too much shade throwing and simping on T'Challas part.

It's time to move on. As Kylo Ren said "Let the past die, kill it if you have to"

Same for T'Challa and Storm. It ain't worth it. Not unless Storm was annexed to the BP mythos.

Black Panther Thinks Captain America's Shield Is A Waste Of Vibranium
The King of Wakanda, Black Panther, reveals his true feelings about Captain America's trusty Vibranium shield in Fantastic Four: Life Story #2
.
BY BRYCE MORRIS



Warning: Spoilers for Fantastic Four: Life Story #2 ahead!

Captain America's famous shield may be a product of Wakandan Vibranium, but that doesn't mean the African nation's king and protector Black Panther is particularly a fan. T'Challa shares his true feelings about Steve Rogers' signature weapon in the pages of Fantastic Four: Life Story.

The four-issue miniseries Fantastic Four: Life Story by writer Mark Russell (Marvels Snapshots) and artist Sean Izaakse (Champions) spans the lives of Marvel's First Family beginning from their 1960s space race origins moving forward in time as they age and explore the cosmos over the decades. This series additionally highlights the team's roster of supporting characters and heroes, which includes the Black Panther and his technologically advanced African nation, Wakanda. In the ever-evolving world of Marvel Comics, there are few known substances that can measure up to the sheer might of Vibranium. Hailing from an alien species of unknown origin, Vibranium has served as the epicenter of Wakanda for generations. As Wakanda inches ever closer to the world stage, the powerful metal has found itself in the hands of several American outlets including the United States government, which used Vibrauiunm to create the iconic shield of WWII hero and Avengers leader Captain America.

In Fantastic Four: Life Story #2, the team struggles to acclimate to the cultural movements of the 1970s while a new villainous force is introduced in the form of Ulysses Klaw. Representing the World Bank, Klaw visits Ghana, seeking payment for a rising debt owed to him by the West African country. A representative for Ghana calls for insight from his friend, Wakandan royal T'Challa a.k.a. the Black Panther. Seeing through Klaw's deception and avarice, Black Panther quickly brings an end to the exchange by handing him an encased cube constructed from Vibranium itself. The Vibranium exchange not only acts as a fair trade for the debt Ghana owes, but as payment for all of Africa's debts. Though putting Vibranium in the hands of Klaw may prove to be a catastrophic decision in the long run, Black Panther is confident that the United States will "waste it all on some foolish shield."



Though Fantastic Four: Life Story may stray from the main 616 Marvel timeline, the new issue raises an ever-persistent question about the expansion of Vibranium as a natural resource. While the Marvel Cinematic Universe has only begun to scratch the surface of the metal on the big screen, the beloved film series has even poked fun at Vibranium's usefulness through the 2015 film Avengers: Age of Ultron. With its ability to absorb and amplify vibrations, prove impervious to bullets, enhance magical powers and abilities, and bypass most metals, Vibranium can be equipped to potentially improve aspects of life beyond fighting superheroes. And as Ultron points out in that film, the United States used it "to make a Frisbee."

Vibranium is not always a benefit to the human race, but the opportunities that Wakanda's prized possession presents for the medical field, armed forces, and construction work are limitless. Several key factions in the Marvel Universe have begun to produce their own viable metals in an attempt to reap the technological benefits that Vibranium holds. Former Immortal Hulk writer Al Ewing and Empyre artist Valerio Schiti's S.W.O.R.D. #6 introduces readers to an intergalactic metal known as Mysterium. Unlike Vibranium, Mysterium is manufactured by mutants and can withstand radiation and heat while being extremely durable when cooled, initiating the new substance up to par with Marvel Comics' other familiar metal substance,  Adamantium.


While Marvel writers have made continued efforts to build upon Vibranium in the modern-day, the metal has a long road ahead in defining itself beyond the world of Black Panther's Wakanda and Captain America's signature weapon. Marvel Comics' Fantastic Four Life Story #2 is now available.


https://screenrant.com/black-panther-captain-america-shield-vibranium-waste/

"Hailing from an alien species of unknown origin...?!?" Really? When did this retcon occur?

"Defining itself beyond  the world of Black Panther's Wakanda... ?!?" You see ,that's what not knowing will do for you. It would be a gross tactical and economic error for the Black Panther to widely disperse vibranium especially with the mutants on the horizon with their new exotic metal mysterium.

Speaking of retcons it was refreshing to read an example of Black Panther using his vast resources to help all of Afraka. Just goes to show that it is morally reprehensible for Wakanda not to intercede on the behalf of continental Afraka and the Afrakan diaspora.

Why would T'Challa ever give klaw vibranium??? That was the dumbest thing I have ever seen. He would of killed him on the spot. Or are writer's forgetting that klaw tried to forcefully take vibranium in the past and killed T'Chaka over it. That's just an Insult to T'Challa and his mythos

I don't think this story is based on Marvel History. Klaw is a banker and not a geologist. It must be like that Spiderman story that JJ Abrams wrote.

I thought this was some other non 616 reality in which Klaw did not kill T'Chaka. I will have to read the comic book to get the full details.

This story does pose an interesting situation for the Black Panther and Wakanda. I have always championed Wakanda helping Afraka and the Afrakan diaspora and I believed they would have done so from the very onset. Reginald Hudlin gave us a very good segue into historical Wakanda during one of the most horrific events in human history in his potent BP tale Black to the Future. I would like to see more stories done with the Black Panther and Wakanda out strategizing and over powering the colonial nations and thus frustrating and disrupting their efforts in human trafficking.

While I could give some credence to BP paying off Afraka's supposed debt, the fact remains that Afraka should never have any debt to begin with. A real tale would tell of a small Afrakan nation lead by a great leader and his spiritual connection to one of the oldest Afrakan deities and his efforts to reclaim that which was stolen; right the wrongs of the past and bring to to justice all guilty persons and nations. These stories are just waiting to be told and I think there is a very large audience ready to receive such.
