Black Panther #168 (solicit)

BLACK PANTHER #168

KLAW STANDS SUPREME Part 3

ALL THE DOORS ARE OPEN.

And for the Black Panther, that's bad news. As monsters pour through strange gateways, T'Challa must defend his country from within.

But with Klaw stealing the lifeblood of Wakanda, the king will have to turn to unlikely allies to staunch the tide!

Who will join the king's ill-fated crusade?

solicits don't usually mean much but...


1. The portal business is still going on. Somehow, Coates made a story about the Wakanda mythology boring AF. Monkey paw

2. "Defend his country from within." Didn't we get a whole 12 issue story about that?

3. Life Blood? Im assuming thats Vibranium

4. Oh hey look. T'challa needs more help from allies.... This books should be "Black Panther and..."

Unlikely Allies.... So the MA that Coates is still trying to push as interesting characters?

Funy thing is that Coates is so bad at this that he basically has 3 different plots going at the same time and it looks horrible. Unless he gave up on the faustus thing because Spencer basically pissed in his cheerios by using faustus. But he had Faustus with stane and co, originators (Whatever they are supposed to be) and now Klaw coming. All of this just reeks of slow pacing, boring dialogue, subpar action with a castrated Title character who needs his hand held for everything and has to turn to allies while Wakanda gets brought to its knees by literally everything.

Remember the Days when T'Challa and Wakanda were actually formidable? People would think twice before trying to f*ck with them? Now everyone is a threat that can bring the entire nation to its knees

Monkey Paw for sure.

Yeah IDK why he tried to mix the two plots.

Should have been a 6 issue Orisha arc followed by the 6 issue whatever faustus/klaw/stane thing is.

There was absolutely no reason to mix the two. they aren't compatible at all.

I don't know what's going on in this book.

Is he fighting those egyptian silhouette people yet?  Didn't they kidnap Bast or something?

Is Klaw an editorial decision?  Why is he here now?

Where's Queen Justice Divine?  Yall were talking about her months ago.

How come T'Challa always gotta team up with some unlikely allies?
How many leaders you said you needed then left em for dead?
Is it Moses, is it Huey Newton or Detroit Red?
Is it Martin Luther, JFK, shooter you assassin
Is it Jackie, is it Jesse, oh I know, its King T'Challa, oh!

When ish hit the fan, is you still a fan?

We don't know what is going on either. lol.

Still fighting portal monsters. Klaw may be here for the renumbering event.

 He is attempting to build converging story lines but got lost because he has a Storm fetish similar to Claremont.

QDJ got kidnapped by Stane and company, but because Coates doesent know how to put subplots in each issue its easy to forget. He writes for the TPB where someone can read it all at once. He has no month to month skills.

I don't know what's going on in this book.

Plot Line 1: Gods are gone, portals keep opening allowing monster things into Wakanda. Why any of this is happenign is a mystery... still.

Plot Line 2: Faustus/Stane/Zenzi/Fenris kidnapped QDJ for... reasons. Why that happened is a mystery... still.

Plot Line 3: T'challa and Storm reconciling of sorts.

No. Just fighting monster minions. No idea what happened to BAst. I don't even think she has been mentioned since T'challa met with his ancestors.

Here is how ever "orisha" story goes

- someone calls for help
- find portal
- fight monsters at portal. usually a T'challa + team up (shuri, eden, Zavari, MA, Storm, HZ, ect)
- somehow close portal (usually people die here)
- vague philosophy and history lessons on portal stuff

and then throw in some african names that only serve to confuse and make it hard to read

he hasn't been mentioned in the book yet. Obviously editorial edition. Coates should have just had Klaw kidnap QDJ or something but yeah

????

We had an issue where he busted in a club to try and find out where she is. I think that was 2 issues ago. It was completely random. We didn't even see how T'challa knew she was kidnapped.

Because Coates is an idiot who didn't learn anything from season 1 except that now that the supporting cast is back, plus his new no one man banner soaring, it must mean T'Challa must bow have his hand held by every supporting cast member Coates decides to throw in. All the while having two very different stories that are really two separate stories that should of been broken down into 6 parts and wrapped up. ( Or cancelled really)

Lol @ Spidey randomly having a sister named Teresa

I was going to comment on the more relevant aspects of the solicits (Twilight Protocol?  Black Panther randomly involved?) but really, a sibling?  and not just a sibling but a sibling named Teresa?

So we're cloning again?  or alternate reality?

I just don't know whether Spider-Teresa is going to catch on as well as Spider-Gwen did.  But if anyone can spin off a name for Spider-legacy character #9,344,338, it's the spider mythos
