John Ridley had better come strong. Tochi Onyebuchi's Legends Black Panther #2 reads very well. It is concise and well paced. The changes he made may be missed by the casual or new BP reader but they still come off as more a nuance than unnecessary or a deconstruction. All characters voices rang true and there was a good dynamic between T'Challa and Ororo that distinguishes Onyebuchi from predecessors Claremont and Dickey. With only two issues in, I like this telling of Black Panther enough to read it as a 12 issue maxi series. If this series continues to read well to its conclusion, I could see inviting Tochi Onyebuchi back to scribe other historical BP adventures and/or creating some new ones. I hope John Ridley's first two issue read as well.





SPOILERS!







As an enthusiast of the super hero aesthetic I would like to see young T'Challa in some cool looking, high tech Afrakan futurist attire.



Note how they refer to "the Wolf" and not the "bull" as in DeRuyter the Bull as the person they answer to. Apparently he has been retconned out of the story.

T'Challa is smooth, confident in his abilities, with a no compromise attitude.



Cool intro. Storm shines as she usual in a BP comic. What Tochi Onyebuchi got right was neither was compromised by having one save the other. Very smart on his part.



I like Storm describing the rumors and mystique of Wakanda and the Black Panther.



Age appropriate young teens, no sex scenes and yet you can feel their romance burgeoning.



I don't like the insistence and constant stating going back to Aaron's Avengers that Wakanda ignores and does not help other Afrakan countries. It makes them look petty, immature, unsophisticated and cowardly. As a narrative it just doesn't make sense.





I purposefully left out the new and juicer parts of the story and just showed how well Tochi Onyebuchi handled the Black Panther and Storm's romance. He remained much closer to Claremont's version.

This was the kind of storytelling I was expecting from Kyle Baker.

This was a good read, the artwork was nice and I am looking forward to issue number three.

This was a really good read. Everybody got respect, nobody looked weak. Good pacing, the art for the story and he is setting up some good conflict for later.

If we needed a definitive Tchalla meet Storm as kids, this is it.

Its not a bad book. It's just... Why though? We literally had a origin story told in Rise. No one looked particularly bad but nothing really happened either. Well there was hints of Storm trash talking with the "Typical Wakandan" line, though I guess T'Challa countered that. Still it was a fine issue. Nothing groundbreaking or new

Black Panther's New Marvel Origin May Depend on The Fantastic Four
Black Panther first appeared in a Fantastic Four comic, but now T'Challa's new origin means he needs the help of Marvel's First Family once again.
BY JOSHUA ISAAK



Marvel's Black Panther has a long history with the Fantastic Four, beginning in Fantastic Four #52 back in 1961. The characters have interacted quite a lot since then, helping each other solve their problems and fight world-threatening villains. But in Black Panther: Legends #4, the King of Wakanda's very origin story may well be rewritten to incorporate Marvel's First Family.

The Black Panther Legends series rewrites T'Challa's entire origin by examining the young prince during his early days, before he ever ruled a country. The first issue chronicled a little-known story: that of the relationship between T'Challa and his adoptive brother Hunter. Hunter, who was white, was an anomaly in Wakanda and one of the very few people of non-African descent. Hunter knew he would never seat the throne of Wakanda - he knew he wasn't even in the line of succession - and he eventually became envious of his brother. Nevertheless, he vowed to be the greatest Wakandan of all time.



Per Marvel's March solicitations, Black Panther Legends #4 will include the Fantastic Four once he ascends the throne. He's faced with the same choice that haunted his father: should he "...keep Wakanda closed off and safe, or open up and offer aid to the rest of the world? As a test case, he invites the Fantastic Four to Wakanda, and ends up needing their help to battle a now-super-powered Klaw as he tries again to infiltrate the country and steal the precious vibranium for himself." The Fantastic Four may be able to help him defeat Klaw - but they can also help T'Challa find a. balance between a warrior and a king.

The Fantastic Four and the Black Panther franchises are intertwined in comics history, and Marvel is thus using the opportunity to retell T'Challa's origin in a new and interesting manner. One can only wonder exactly how they'll fit into the new continuity, but readers will discover Black Panther and the Fantastic Four's fates for themselves when Black Panther Legends #4 releases in March 2022.

I'm sure they mean well, but this seems entirely unnecessary and worse still? A complete insult to T'Challa as a character...much less Wakanda as a "character".

Somebody get Redjack right away to write away on this stuff the right way.

All Hail Redjack.

And where da heck is Evan Narcisse? He'd smash this stuff.

This team might be ready for the top spot. Because this is a good issue. The dialogue feels natural and the art while obtuse, makes Wakanda feel loved in like a nice living room. I don't think there is a wasted panel. One more issue to go.

While I must admit to preferring this variant cover over the original as I find it more conducive to the narrative being told, this issue was a good read.

Fran Galan's art stylized Wakanda and its inhabitants in very grounded Afrakan aesthetic. This is one of my favorite iterations of Shuri. Young and enthusiastic; smart and introspective; insightful and observant; warm and loving to her brother whom she looks up to. This was also a very nice Hunter. He came off as furtive and menacing. A commanding man with a purpose.

Tochi Onyebuchi's T'Challa was what one expects to see in a young Black Panther. Stealthy and combat ready as his fight with the Hatute Zeraze clearly demonstrated. His battle with the Lion tribe champion showed us a T'Challa so skilled that a proven fighter couldn't even touch him. His final fight with his uncle was a master's class in strategy and tactic. Onyebuchi's T'Challa wins every time and that was refreshing to see.

I did like the the showing of the different tribes and the crocodile man. Wakanda should show off more original and exotic inhabitants unrelated to vibranium and mutation. However, at some point a creative is going to have restructure this "battle for the crown" event because as it stands and has stood, it makes very little sense.

This was an enjoyable read and I look forward to the next issue. I would like to see Tochi Onyebuchi and this team write some more adventures of young T'Challa the Black Panther.

I'm going to sound like the pessimist here but...

Meh it was fine, but Rise did challenge day 1000% better and made T'Challa way more badass for what he accomplished. This was mediocre. They focused on some random Wakandan who's beating through the competition and then T'Challa comes in at the last minute. Very lame imo. The additions were sensible, bit o find just like the rest of the book, unnecessary. We have been told this story so many times already, hell rose came out just a few years ago and we are having this telling so soon after that. The only thing I am looking forward to that rise didn't cover was the FF meeting. I have Hopes got that.

It's a good (albeit unnecessary) issue

Exactly. Exactly.

REDJACK should be writing the flagship BLACK PANTHER book

RIDLEY should be writing THE WORLD OF WAKANDA

NARCISSE should be writing THE ROYALS

BLACK PANTHER #7

JOHN RIDLEY (W) • STEFANO LANDINI (A) • Cover by ALEX ROSS

The Hatut Zeraze have taken control of Wakanda, and with the Black Panther branded a traitor, the future of the nation is at a crossroads. To clear his name and protect his people from his own mistakes, T’Challa must reckon with his legacy — starting with the acknowledgement that leadership is only as strong as the faith of its following.

courtesy of CBR's Mind of Shadow

Cool cover. The Hatut Zeraze have taken control of Wakanda... ok, smells like Hunter but I wouldn't be the least bit surprised if Ridley makes it Akili. All the women of Wakanda, huh? Are we to guess that the next Wakandan civil war will be a continuation of Coates' battle of the sexes? Coates' version of T'Challa the Black Panther is so dead and his ghost is killing Ridley's iteration.

This too is a courtesy of the Shadow.

To keep the thread honest, we have this coming soon.
