The Black Panther is a fictional superhero appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. Created by writer-editor Stan Lee and penciller and co-plotter Jack Kirby, he first appeared in Fantastic Four #52.

This is utterly pitiful

It was a virtually textless, action packed issue...

Of Aneka taking out the whole base, taking out Faustus, Zenzi, stopping the "mind transfer" thing, stopped Klaw resurrection of his sister, rescuing Ayo
The rest of the Doras then invade while the Azania army calls out for reinforcement


Like, I am literally not joking at all There is one panel of T'challa figthing the monsters that was in the preview. The rest of it is Aneka kicking ass and taking names.

Was the action good at least?

I mean, it is no Iron Fist but its solid.

"Yall know season 2 wouldn't be any better right?"

-MM quizzically interjected a season ago, a snarky dismissive tone ever present in his e-disposition
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?

I just read it. So the machine caused a sound dead zone?

The action was solid, just used the wrong character. lol

instead of sh*tting on T'challa every other page, he simply pushed him to the background

so... that's better... i think?

By season three, he might be the 3rd most important character! progress!

So just to be clear,  the best action in the series,
comes from Ayo.. and Ayo is able to take out both Zenzi AND Faustus AND stop klaws resurrection of his sister.. but nah man Coates IS a fan of T'Challa, shoot he got him delegating his work and going on Spirit journeys to learn about the horror of his people, all the while not able to have a single issue in this entire series that let's HIM kick ass and take names without prose  and garbage

and we know 172 is going to have Storm save the day

Coates does realize Klaw KILLED TCHALLA AND SHURIS DAD RIGHT?

shouldn't they at least get the focus here?

Can we at least have Shuri be the de factor 2nd character? I'd allow a Shuri issue

Marvel does realize a Black Panther movie featuring T'challa with secondary Okoye, Nakia, and Shuri is coming out in 24 day sright?

You know what would have been fun?

If the MA were coming to invade, T'challa contacts whoever is leading that group and tells them where to go because "I have an asset on the ground there"

We see a shadowy chick systematically take out guard after guard (like aneka did her but more spy like) and frees aneka, qdj.. each time they see who rescued them they have a shocked look on their face.

she stops t e process, frees, Ayo

We finally see her face on the final splash page

BOOM... Its Nakia, minds blown


but aneka is cool too though
