    I'm not sure there is really anyone that could have gave the depth any weight simply because T'challa has no friends lol

    It is cool he is seemingly getting a new sidekick though! thta is actually wakandan and the suit looks cool. Too bad the love interest angle is completely shut down due to her banging his friend lol

    spoilers:
    I think Kantu could have worked too. He's probably in his early 20s by now, T'Challa knew him when he was kid. Just say that after his adventures with T'Challa in Jungle Action he was inspired to serve his country like the Black Panther. Would've been great to see a kid who lived through Killmonger's invasion and the Wakandan crack epidemic (lol) become one of his king's best agents and die protecting the woman he loved.

    T'Challa would've felt more personally responsible and it would've been a cool opportunity to do a panel or two in that 70s style to emphasize how far back the pair went. But I agree there was really no way to make the scene pop because T'Challa's supporting cast by and large lacks any personality or deep connections that would make their loss meaningful. So an OC isn't much worse that Kantu or Taku tbh.

    And who knows what they end up doing with that female agent lol. Since a big theme of this arc seems to be betrayal (both by T'Challa and those in his life) she could be working for the villain. But unless Ridley wants to play up T'Challa as James Bond I doubt they end up together. But it seems like Storm is out the question too given how she's being positioned as a rival/obstacle to T'Challa's plans. Might be awhile before a new BP LI and I'm ok with that lol.

    Maybe there was another one I am blanking on

    spoilers:
    But we just saw Kantu in Long Live The King #3 so it wouldn't make sense for him to become a spy so quickly and rise up the ranks.

    Are there two Kantu's or is that the guy you are talking about?

    If that MCU rumor about T’Challa and Nakia having a son is true, then maybe synergy kicks in, and Ridley revives NuNakia. Lmao.

    I assume you realize that the most likely candidate for the actual villain is

    spoilers:
    Omolola herself. If she was turned, then the easiest way for her to find the OTHER sleepers would be to get T'Challa to lead her to them.

    Overall I think this was a strong start to Ridley's run and so far I like his T'Challa. There were a few things that I didn't like but what bugged me the most was spoilers:
    Shuri calling him paranoid. Does she not remember what world that she lives in?

    spoilers:
    I think Kantu was the kid that saved him from Killmonger. He died in his teens from a crack overdose after returning from the US. In theory he could be one of the spies with the overdose being the cover story. Malaika, Sofija, Taku and any BP supporting character that has been in limbo could be the spies. Unless Ridley is using strictly OCs.

    This storyline can easily bring her back and I'll be for it. She has a good enough background and it would easily explain why she hasn't been since leaving for Wakanda with T'Challa.

    spoilers:
    Off the top of my head, he outlived his usefulness. She seduced him to get information out of him until she didn't need him and knew that his death would personally affect T'Challa. Also it meant that she and the main villain can track down the other spies because T'Challa will now be looking for them.

    Not really. I mean, it's a classic spoilers:
    femme fatale
    end of spoilers move.

    spoilers:
    "The deluded fool actually thought I loved him! As if I would ever fall for a man like him!
    end of spoilers

    That sort of thing.

    Hey everyone,

    Just finished reading the 1st issue. Like the characterization of T'Challa and looks like the plot will be interesting, but more action on T'Challa's part is required.

    I am excited to see what happens next.
