    Marvel screwed up. They had the eyes of the WORLD looking at T'Challa, thanks to the movie, and instead of striking while the iron was hot, they gave control of the franchise to a political...

    A mythos created by the same writer 4 years ago, let's not forget. This isn't a deep cut like the Celestial Madonna thing, this is just Ewing taking Chekov's gun off the mantle.

    Not a big fan of King. His stuff comes across as ponderous and "literary", and T'Challa doesn't need that.

    Frankly, I think it's part of a deeper issue... comics have lost a sense of scale.
