    One of Man-Ape's pretexts for his coup against Black Panther was a promise to return the nation to its more primitive traditions.

    Wakanda as an advanced civilization in it's own right came later, and does indeed constitute a retcon. It's a good retcon, certainly more sensible than one guy transforming a whole culture, but it's not the way Wakanda was always portrayed.
    I was citing that as an example of a good retcon. So, Um. Yes.

    But congrats on "Well actually"-ing me for no reason. That was a super cool move.

    Marvel's Original Sin is a good example of a poorly done retcon, IMO.

    It's cool. I certainly didn't need to snap back either.
