    If only there was someone writing a BP solo who could incorporate this into a story line.

    That would give a big boost to a comic losing sales.

    F Namor... Boltagon is T'challa new monarch buddy.

    Anyone that rides with you on a surprise murder mission is bro for life.
    Ha ha yeah for sure. Boltagon T'Challas ride or die Monarch. It's too late for Doom and namor, they gotta catch claws to the face before anything close to that happens. Otherwise BP BB and namor would of been a fun Team up with a reluctant alliance. But I'm down for the BP BB tag team

    Given the treatment Black mutants get, especially males... It IS a huge difference

    Yes, he and the Wrecking Crew curb stomped Dr. Doom when he was being Ironman.

    Point. Besides the constant, unrelenting misery that gets heaped upon mutants in the Marvel Universe, there is also a certain level of hypocrisy to a franchise that employs (or for the more cynical, exploits) a metaphor for the ongoing struggles of persecuted and marginalized groups in real life while mistreating, mishandling, or misusing characters that are from said groups.

    Or like the time that kitty pryde called a fictional Black character the N word and said the made up term mutie was just as bad.. and she saideit twice in the issue and what was worse is that then another Black character essentially excuses it. That isht was ballsy.. and not in a good way

    Thank you.

    In the meantime, given that Nightshade did try heroics of a sort with the Supreme Power Nighthawk when he was in the 616 universe, anyone ever think of what might happen if she got press-ganged into Wakanda's service like Thunderball did?

    Considering she took up the Nighthawk mantle, I don't think she'd need to be press-ganged, she probably help if Tchalla was doing a mission in Chicago. If the new brainwashed Nighthawk wasn't around, I'd say she'd make a good candidate for Agents of Wakanda.

    She could join Agents of Wakanda for certain missions.

    You got their before me. I'd like to see Diamondback on AoW at some point.

    Another potential part-time member? Sue Storm. Based on her solo/mini, she'd fit in well.

    Yeah, that's a good one to bring up, too. And then there's the sympathy heaped upon Magneto because of his childhood set in the real-life Holocaust, never mind that at least some of the same people willing to let him off the hook wouldn't do the same for a character whose backstory and rationale revolved around the horrors of the Transatlantic Slave Trade.

    Of course, Nazism was presumed dead and buried at the time and the harm committed in its name was thus relegated to the dustbin of history, whereas the aftereffects of Transatlantic Slave Trade could not be brushed off so easily because the same decade in which so many of the foundational Marvel heroes (Black Panther and X-Men included) debuted also saw violent, sometimes lethal backlash to the Civil Rights Movement's attempt to redress that lasting legacy, which was still relatively recent at the time Chris Claremont gave us Magneto's backstory. Either that, or it could be that everyone reading a comic book back then could at least agree that the Nazis were evil and bad and wrong for what they did, but many of the same people couldn't agree on whether or not black Americans, to say nothing of others of African descent around the world, had any right to be angry about the conditions they'd endured and whose responsibility said conditions were. One fit into a simple "good vs. evil" narrative beloved in and essential to superhero comics, but the other would've forced some serious examination, if not deconstruction, of the American sociocultural narrative, which people back then (and to some extent even now) weren't ready to handle, so creating an antagonist or villain who would have done that likely would have been a much harder sell.

    That's actually better, come to think of it. Thanks.

    I'm not sure if this was discussed here yet, but, going by the most recent issues ending, do any of you think it is possible that the symbiote itself may have absorbed some of Bast's powers?
    We are the Dora Milaje. We are the daughters of the 18 tribes of Wakanda. We are the teeth of the Panther God. Out of 10,000 years of sweat and bloodshed and battle are we born. We are the women of this ancient land. Deadliest of the species. And our time has come!
