@nerevarine_11: I'm Jamaican American mixed. Nothing in this story shows Anti-African. To be honest this is KINDA cool they are basically the Black Avengers. This is a good book so far.

That dude is trying to start something that doesn't need to be started. He is wrong and I bet he hasn't even read all the issues.

@regulatorjoe: Yes this is Main Continuity. Shuri is KINDA but not really. She's dead, but she's not dead.......*How can I explain this* Um she's on a spiritual Journey. Her soul isn't in her body so yes she's dead, but kinda in Wakandan Limbo sort to speak.

I kind of wish they were bringing back the all-old all-traditional Crew. But a superhero team up should bring a lot of fun to this book regardless.

This is a tricky one and confusing. They hated each other then they randomly made up then they ignored each other.

BUT since the NEW Universe being remade they both don't have an issue with each other. Their relationship now is this:

You know how after a break up you go to a party and you just so happen to see your Ex there. And your Ex does NOTHING, but stare at you and when you look there way they act like YOUR not important to them............that's T'challa.

I like what I've seen so far, but it is strange that Black Panthers back up was all black characters....

Imagine if DC did something like this? Cyborg, Vixen and John Stewart?

That still doesn't explain why she would come help. Me and my Ex may be cool but she not going to give me a ride to work

I wouldn't consider them friends, but in this NEW Universe they still are close friends. And they both are protective of Wakanda.

Coates is trying too hard to be phylosophical and interesting with his stories and so far it's not working one bit. The book is boring and as much as I want to read about Black Panther I was forced to drop this book because of it;s mediocrity.

The preview isn't promissing enough to make me buy it. I especially hate how much Marvel are trying to force Luke Cage and Misty Knight on us lately. They should just get it that neither character is as interesting as they think they are.

As much as I HATE this idea........Storm might as well. If it gets her more character development and power exploration then so be it.

When Storm was with T'challa, she was written more well than she is now. I agree it could give her more character development.

By the way, why do you hate the idea?

@tdk_1997: Luke cage and misty knight are in one series each. That's not forcing. Then you have a Luke cage mini series. He just had a Netflix series. He's just now become popular. Marvel hasn't done anything serious with him yet. I consider forcing on the level of deadpool titles. That's forcing

I am not saying that the push for Luke began recently. Marvel, and especially Bendis, have been pushing him down our throats since 2005.

Yeah. LOL. How is that not the corniest line people have ever seen.

And this isn't even a case of "middle aged Jewish writer thinks he knows how urban black people talk", T'aneeshi Coates is a black afro-centrist from Baltimore. That's pretty sad.

@tdk_1997: How exactly is giving Luke Cage & Misty Knight some shine "forcing" them down your throats? One could say that about Deadpool or DC with Kyle Rayner or even Hal Jordan for sure but I don't follow you. Explain, please good sir.

@scbetton: Well said. Marvel needs to stop with all the Deadpool BS.. dude sucks to me.

@nerevarine_11: Whoever said that to you is dumb. This book is excellent & one of the last Marvel books I actually pay for. I'm loving the story so far.

Looks great. I'm excited to see if "The Crew" because a legit super team or if it's just something they're putting together in this book. I love me some Misty Knight & I'm glad they're putting Storm near Black Panther again. I hate whoever broke up the greatest black couple in comics. If Reed & Sue can make it thru all the bs they've put up with I don't understand how something like Civil War 1 can split up the powerhouse of Black Panther & Storm. Although if they do get back togetehr I hope their relationship is developed and worked out in depth.

...to be fair...Misty Knight is a thug tho lol

@inglewoodian: Misty Knight not in particular but Cage has been a force like that since Bendis started handling him. Each one of his appearances since 2004-2005 has to be somehow an indication that he's a bad ass character that we should all love. But when you look at things with an onjective eye you see that he might be a character with potential but the writer should do more than just write him like a bad ass, he should change his rogues gallery and give him some more personal development, something more than the baby. That's why I have a problem with Luke.

For Deadpool I agree, same goes for Harley Quinn, but why Kyle?

@tdk_1997: I can see what you're saying I just don't fully agree. Hell yes he needs an updated rogues gallery for sure. He needs to face a serious threat & deal with some real live drama for sure. Have his baby kidnapped or something lol I personally like Cage though perhaps its because of the potential there but idk I think he's cool just like you said a writer hasn't fully fleshed him out just yet. When it comes to Kyle Rayner I just don't like him at all. He's annoying & everything they do with him at DC seems like they are just trying to make him cool & attractive when he's even less entertaining then Guy Gardner. I feel like John Stewart deserved to be where he is but is overlooked and just made to be "racial diversity" in the comics. John Stewart is used as the Affirmative Action member of the GL Core but he could be so much more.

I agree. Cage has the potential to be a good character but the right writer should pick him up and upgrade his rogues gallery and his stories a little bit. Because it seems Marvel are trying to stick way too hard with the 70's vision they have of the character and that doesn't leave him any room to improve, to become modern in a sense.

Everyone's entitles to their own opinion I guess.The period right after the creation of Kyle people weren't really happy with him appearing in all of those books but in my opinion he grew a lot. He became a well developed character with good history and at times I even wonder who's my favorite Lantern, is it him or Hal.
