    Franklin creates a pocket universe for his parents and others after their battle with Onslaught. The books were done by post Image creation Lee & Liefield. It did not go well and everyone came back.

    Also this was around the time Marvel money issues and buying (destroying) Ultraverse universe was also happening.

    I suspect this is more allowing testing of new creative teams and filling in the summer to allow time to catch up on stuff. Along with plan whatever event for FF since November 2021 is their 60th anniversary.

    Thank God for reason, I can't stomach the consistent inability of writers to create new and interesting concepts that can make sense, while still aligning with his own world and mythology. It's like the first thing they think is ....Let's remove the African part and just slap anything in its place! Lol.

    I'm interested in the Wakandan/Japanese fusion cuisine. They ought to have some cool ramen combo bowls.


    but seriously. who knows? In this world, we don't know how Wakanda evolved, especially whether or not they got conquered or decided to fully open their society at some point in the distant past.. we'll see..

    IIRC pre-colonial West Africa (Mali and Songhai Empire) was known to employ different types of warriors, many of whom were from distinct warrior clans armed with spears, swords, and armor passed down through the generations. I think they were called farima or something like that, but when they rebelled against the mansa, lost favor with their noble family, or simply fell into banditry (all of which happened often in the 15th and 16th century) they’d probably have held a similar status to a ronin.

    Scorned warriors of elite background and/or training without the backing of traditional authorities. They’d often serve as mercenaries and bandits. I doubt Aaron’s trying to channel that with this story though lol.

    Well, if Wakanda IS still a secret in this universe, and T'Challa wanted to preserve some anonymity, taking a codename from a completely different culture WOULD be an excellent smokescreen.

    Of course, there has never been a Japanese bearer of the Ronin mantle in the MU. We had a First Nations assassin, a white circus performer, an android copy of a Russian pilot, an African-American vampire hunter, and another white guy with some major psychoses. Having a Japanese Ronin would be refreshing.

    Pacheco drew an epic Old King T'Challa.

    The closest you'll get is Spylocke from Valiant comics.

    I think White Vision should change his name into Vishawn and assume a new personality (and start wearing durags). Go to Wakanda to look into his vibranium roots, embrace swag, and give up on superheroing (LOL):
