    people just want to see good movies. Currently, one company knows how to make them in this genre. on a regular basis. The other is, at best, hit or miss. this is because of their completely different philosophies on how to make the product, not because of one helping or tearing down the other. The public will get bored of super-heroes when MOST of the movies start to suck. So far, Marvel is holding it down for everyone. If Warner's stopped making super-hero movies altogether, nothing would happen to the public or the MCU.

    MOST people who see these films don't care at all about the source material. like 90% they just want good movies.
    Except there's nothing wrong with what I said. I said, it's in the best interest for all involved. I'm not talking about adhering 100% to the source material. A good, well written, acted and directed movie is priority. That much is obvious but when that's compromised for the large portion of movies there becomes an adverse effect. Look at what happened in the mid 90s. DC killed the genre with their poor output and studios didn't want anything to do with comic book properties. Hell, the Blade films weren't wasn't even marketed as comic book movies until ironically the last one came along and although Xmen and spider-man came out in the early 2000s it wasn't until the mid 2000s that studios felt more comfortable to really try and pursue creating output in the genre and the rest is history.
    Marvel are clearly doing well irrespective of what DC is doing but that doesn't change the principle fact that, yes, people do want to see good movies but it's better for the genre if everyone is doing well which I'm sure you can understand why.

    Burbank.

    Conference call between Warner and Disney.

    What really goes on behind the scenes.

    Mickey "Money" Mouse: "Yeah, we're still on lockdown over here... BTW congrats on your Joker movie."

    Bugs "Big Dollars" Bunny: "Thanks doc, we trying over here to keep up with the Joneses and Thanoses."

    Mickey "Money" Mouse: "Feel free to borrow some of our actors if you like."

    Bugs "Big Dollars" Bunny: "Ha ha, so what's up doc with the New Warriors over there... I'm hearing things on the low."

    Mickey "Money" Mouse: "You know how it is we trying this diversity angle and seeing what sticks. Safespace and Snowflake were up in my office complaining about not getting the Wakanda Forever treatment."

    (chomps loudly on a carrot)

    Bugs "Big Dollars" Bunny: "Pssst I hear ya gotta maintain them quotas one way or another... Speaking of Wakanda isn't it way past time whatshisface manufactured a cure by now."

    Mickey "Money" Mouse: "Diss N!&&@ was in the office right after the New Warriors left talking bout' how he lost his swagger because the current writer is not depicting him up to par can you believe that... I told him we are rebooting in June with a brand new writer."

    Bugs "Big Dollars" Bunny: "You know me I don't want to tell you how to run yo business BUT... Black Panther is a potential cash cow and you are sleeping on his potential as a franchise trying to appease a base that doesn't exercise it's purchasing power."

    Mickey "Money" Mouse: "You aint said nuthin' but a word I have to deal with the inner politics and all that blazay blazay B.S. day in and day out."

    Bugs "Big Dollars" Bunny: "We should do a Black Panther and Vxen crossover and get those jet black dollars rolling."

    Mickey "Money" Mouse: "Who do you have in mind for a creative team?"

    Bugs "Big Dollars" Bunny: "I don't want to sound like a spy or anything but that writer you had on the cartoon comes to mind."

    Mickey "Money" Mouse: "Oh I know who you are talking about that dude tried to push up on Minnie behind my back thinking she ran things around here."

    Bugs "Big Dollars" Bunny: "There you go letting the women come between you and the money... Doc, remember why we came to Hollywood and that's to make money PERIOD."

    (chomps carrot again)

    Mickey "Money" Mouse: "You right... get the paper work ready my people will talk to your people and your people will talk to my people and let's go get this paper."

    Bugs "Big Dollars" Bunny: "For legal purposes is Redjack his real name?"

    Mickey "Money" Mouse: "Naw, that's like his Hip Hop name or something you know how them people be on social media and whatnot with all types of aliases!"
    Ah man, I'm telling you, someone should take all of these and out them into a comic strip

    There hasn''t been a decade since the 1930s where "Hollywood" wasn't making superhero movies. not one.

    the genre will "die" when the movies start to suck, over and over again. just like westerns, musicals and period pieces with casts of thousands.

    all those movies still get made and never really stopped being made but each was the dominant box office draw until the theaters were flooded with EVERYBODY trying to drill that same oil at once.

    DC making good super-hero movies has zero bearing on the life or death of super-hero movies provide MARVEL continues to draw in the crowds. and the same would be true if the positions were reversed.

    these companies are in competition with each other. they do not shake hands and try to make each other better because that's not how commerce works.

    These are from Priest run:

    Black Panther Vol. 3 #26-29 "Sturm und Drang" (this is the story Storm shows up in, it's my favorite Black panther story)

    Black Panther Vol. 3 #41-45 "Enemy of the State II" (this story can be confusing if you just jump in,but it's my 2nd favorite Black panther story)


    These are not from Priest, but are before Hudlin:

    Avengers,vol 3, #19-22 (this story is fun)

    Fantastic Four #52-53

    Tales of Suspense #97-99,Captain American #100
