god i know it's hopeless and i am wasting my time. geez those 5 minutes i wasted making that post but i couldnt take it. im over at comic book resources reading those fanboys reaction to black panther #18 and i had to sound off (in really tame way magic wand and curtis would be proud). i could not take the double talk and hypocritical nature of those fanboys just flip and take out of context the work of reg. my post:
Help me understand.
Don't sweat those fanboys b-z.
Until I see any indication to the contrary, I will simply conclude that the majority opinion from that quarter is prejudiced and bigoted where Mr. Hudlin is concerned. I'm not saying the prejudice and bigotry is racial. I'm saying this. Now that Mr. Hudlin has given us a regal, confident, magnificent, independent and powerful black man who now dons the sacred Black Panther garb and rules mighty Wakanda, some of those fanboys long for the days of Priest's Panther even though some might admit to not being particularly interested in the Priest run on the book.
For too many fanboys and fangirls out there
there is evidence of a prejudgement where Mr. Hudlin's ability to effectively write the Black Panther is concerned, and now that Mr. Hudlin has proven to be successful at writing the character, those fanboys and fangirls out there are unwilling to accept the positive changes and/or adjustments made to the character. They are bigoted against Hudlin's T'Challa as they long for the days of the T'Challa of the immortal Jack Kirby's "Solomon's Frogs" and the T'Challa of the Avenger's writer Roy Thomas.
Those same fanboys and fangirls will rant on and on about how comics characters need to "get with the times". They criticize the costumes. They criticize the ideals and morals of today's characters as being rooted in the past. Still, they refuse to accept that the Panther has had a marvelous upgrade and is a Panther for today's comic fan. Those prejudiced and bigoted fanboys and fangirls want the Panther to remain rooted in the past.
I read one bit of sheer stupidity that claimed that Hudlin had turned Storm into a cold-blooded killer.
What about the Storm who stabbed Callisto through the heart? What about the Storm who stabbed Marrow throught he heart? What about the Storm that other white writers had traipsing through this or that "arena", scantily-clad and engaging in wild, lecherous, debauchery...and enjoying it? Those white writers had given us a Storm who appeared to enjoy a life of decadence and violence for violence sake....and might have even been willing to experiment with a little bi-sexual activity to boot.
Those fanboys and fangirls want the equivalent of a step-n-fetchit T'Challa and an Ororo that is nothing more than a sexual plaything who gets off on things like a more violent form of arena mud-wrestling with other female characters. Mr. Hudlin has elevated T'Challa and Ororo to regal status. They are the sparkling, powerful rulers of one of the mightiest nations on the face of Marvel Comic's planet Earth. They have the potential to become the most unique and exciting married couple the Marvel Universe and comics in general, has ever seen. They can be bigger than Superman and Lois. They can be bigger than Reed and Sue, Peter and Mary Jane. Unless Underdog marries Sweet Polly Purebred, I don't see another couple out there that can even begin to challenge them
If you must read the comments of those fanboys and fangirls brother b-z, do as I do. Laugh at them
