"2 Women in 50 Years" Appreciation/Unappreciation Thread
« on: April 22, 2017, 01:22:04 pm »
or "50 Shades of Black (Panther)" :P

Terminal Objective: Make a case for why a marvel female of your choice would be a great love interest for T'Challa.  Then make a case for why she wouldn't be. 

Optional Objective: Express your appreciation/unappreciation for the abundance of love interests T'Challa has had in his publication history.

I'll start it off:



Monica Rambeau

Pros: Down to earth, Louisiana (I think) black woman.  Super powerful.  Former Leader of the Avengers in the 80s (i think).  Had a short but cute flirtatious history with T'Challa.  MCU available :)  Can't claim she's a downgrade from Storm. ;)

Cons: T'Challa already has someone named Monica, could be confusing for him.  She's with Blue Marvel.  She's treated as the red headed step child of Captain Marvels.  She may be too powerful to be a regular (speed of light can be a bitch to plot around... gotta start reading Flash to see how they do it with Boomerang and Captain Cold ass villains).  Carol Danvers will need her as her token black friend in her MCU solo, can they share her?

Spectrum was my first thought too, though I do like her with blue Marvel; together they are definitely a Marvel Power Couple.

Spectrum may actually be my favorite.  Outside of making an original character that is.

I like the idea of Adam and Monica, but the selfish part of me kinda wants BM to kick rocks so BP can slide in her dms

Spectrum was mentioned so I'm going to go faaaaaar left field.

She-Hulk

Pros: Helpful in a fight, has an legal mind, nobody cares enough about her to kick up a fuss.

Cons: Hulks tend to attract hulk problems. Destruction won't be far behind.

Hmmmmm....

Deadly Nightshade:

Pros: She's Black, a genius, super fine and can relate to T'Challa on a genius level. Loves leather.

Cons: She is/was a villain so that could be a problem should she stay in the crime life. But she is fine.
Black Panther. Bane of the Unfans.

Another con is that she's already smashed the homies:  Cage and Stark

Kwai Far


Pros:
She has money, comes from generational wealth.  Not a gold digger.  She's a BP fangirl.  Her brother is pretty good at kung fu.   She's apparently extremely attractive, and looks like she at least does pilates and some zumba.

Cons:
I don't think she's existed outside of that one issue Hudlin wrote with her :(
Also her father is an evil immortal wizard drug lord set on corrupting his would-be-wakandan-royal-blasian grandchildren to take over Wakandan and then rule the world under his influence. But i mean, that's father-in-laws for you

Because I'm in a weird mood, I'm going to give you three possibilities, all somewhat frivolous.

I.  Princess Zanda of Narobia.

Pros:  Politically savvy.  Resources of her country. Experience selling fast food.
Cons:  Poor fashion sense. Nucking futs.

II.  Elizabeth "Talisman" Twoyoungmen

Pros: Potent magician.  Connections to the mystical & mutant communities.
Cons:  Tends to get temporarily killed off during events.  May be annoyed that the name Alpha Flight has been co-opted by the Wakandan Space Program.

III. Gamora Zen Whoberi Ben Titan

Pros:  Deadliest woman in the galaxy.  Contacts in the interstellar community.
Cons: Green.  Is technically Thanos' daughter (and he'd probably show up at the wedding).

Wakandans are a wee bit uptight about that sort of thing.  ;D

But considering that she could kill them all before breakfast, no one is going to say anything to her face. :) However, she likes Nova and he just came back from the dead.

That's rather the problem... any existing Marvel heroine is almost certainly in a relationship with somebody (unless she's underage, of course, but I doubt we want to go there). Anyone know how old QDJ and Magik are?

(Say, what about Namora?  She's still around, and it would drive Sub-Mariner nuts8) )

Alright I got it I got it.

Zenzi:

Pros: Poc,  Dat Booty, Tchalla and her will have heart to hearts Because she will reveal to him what his true feelings are,
if need be she can hulk people out.

Cons: Changey can will her power with a simple speech.

Storm:

Pros: already had a taste of the good life so she still thirsty, they make up the power couple (greater then BM and Monica imo) they have history, Dat Booty.

Cons: x office would likely rip them apart, with claims of great use for Storm, just to put her on that premium wallpaper.

I'm in a troll mood   8)

She is a character with great potential.  Then again, so is Shang Chi.
