    My brother's dkrook and Blind Wedjat stay dropping positive truth bombs on the regular up in here.
    Enjoying the camraderie of friends and family is all that matters in the world.

    Mr MajestiK took a short hiatus and the Chaos Bringer was reborn.

    Lightbulb Exactly Blind Wedjat.

Or taking the X-Men (an albeit weird symbol of oppressed minority groups) and saying that humans actually liked and didn't fear them at first but then mutants suddenly started killing them. Or taking Superman and turning the character into a brooding, Randian, 'benevolent' god-like figure that doesn't believe he's a symbol of hope (look at how that turned out).

    If that's how you see the character in your own head or if that's how you wish the character should be for various reasons, sure. Go ahead and write your fan fiction. But understand that if you're writing comics--especially mainline comics that are usually accepted as canon unless explicitly stated otherwise--expect people to have their complaints about it.
    Very well said Blind Wedjat.

    It is like Marvel Editorial itself doesn't want the Black Panther to be what he was created as by Stan and Jack.
    Priest talked about trying to distance Black Panther from being a "black" book to assuage white anxiety.
    Coates just doesn't believe in what Black Panther and Wakanda stand for as a super intelligent king or righteous and powerful utopia respectively.

    I've said before that giving Coates Black Panther was like giving someone who thinks super powers are unrealistic and any one who did have x-ray vision would be looking through women's clothes, the Superman franchise.
    He thinks he is being smart but really it is just sad.

    The good thing, as shown by T'Challa's portrayal in other comics, is that the current showing of Black Panther and Wakanda in the main title is not one other writers want to write.


    Excelsior!

    So says the Yoda of all things Wakanda! It's a challenge and a pleasure to strive to meet the high standards you and the other OG's set up in here!

    I'm a little late as far as forum time but I love the writing in Black Panther these past few issues man. Coates is concise and brings valid points while keeping T'Challa a full character. T'challa got shot to basically another dimension and still rose to the top as that guy and proved it astoundingly while enjoying it. He also still had flaws that come when you're somewhere you're not home too. This was really great man. Alot of African immigrants come to America and look down on Black Americans. They don't know about black wall street or redlining or fred hampton getting murdered by the US government only because he wanted to help poor people. They also shoot to the top because of their hard work but they don't *know* America until they themselves have to deal with shady police themselves or have someone harass them for being in the wrong neighborhood. It's human and an excellent message about how we have to be vigilant about not putting blinders on because it can happen to the best of us, really especially to the best of us.

    Watching Coates really get better writing comics over time has been a joy for me. I hope he can keep his positive momentum going.
    I'm loving this post and glad to see others are enjoying his run just as much as I am.

    If you mean IDW, its already been cancelled and you can find it in a dumpster fire. But that is from an adults perspective. An elementary school child might think differently
