While King T'Challa -- the long-standing Marvel Comics superhero better known as the Black Panther -- is primed to join the ranks of Marvel moviedom very soon, it appears he'll get another chance at four-color glory first.

This week in his regular Axel-in-Charge column on CBR, Marvel Editor-in-Chief Axel Alonso promised a new series for the Stan Lee/Jack Kirby creation as part of the ongoing All-New, All-Different lineup of series arriving in the wake of the publisher's "Secret Wars" event.

Discussing the question of greater diversity in comics both on and off the page, Alonso had this to say, "The entire comic book industry benefits from greater diversity, my editors -- who are very racially diverse, by the way -- know that, and you'll see that throughout the 'All-New, All-Different Marvel' [initiative] that continues through February. I am very excited about the stuff we have planned -- especially 'The Totally Awesome Hulk' and 'Black Panther.' Yes, Black Panther."

Of course, that announcement carries with it no creative team as of yet. The Black Panther's previous series from 2011 and 2009 both ended after 12 issues. A previous iteration made it to 41 issues with the majority of the run being written by movie producer Reggie Hudlin.

The character was a part of the All-New, All-Different Marvel teaser that appeared earlier this year, and with his taking over a new solo series, the only player on that image to not yet get a post-"Secret Wars" announcement is Red Wolf -- the hero of the current event tie-in "1872." Earlier this year, Alonso had this to say about the Native American hero: " read '1872' by Gerry Duggan and Nik Virella. Red Wolf is a key character in that series, and the fact that he's included in the teaser means he's pretty darn important to us. If you are at all curious to see your favorite Marvel super heroes and villains -- Cap, Iron Man, Hulk, Dr. Strange -- through the lens of the classic Old West paradigm, that series is for you. It is so much fun. This is not a straight Western."

"Black Panther"

"Red Wolf"

Is Marvel being racist???

What's the next superhero?

"Yellow Panda"

Why not call Spider-Man, "White Spider"

It actually reminds me of the Power Rangers.

Before that, Shuri banned him from entering Wakanda after she was made aware of T'Challa's association with Namor. So, yeah. The nation kinda disowned him in a way.

I don't know if "lost" is the right word to use. LOL. He kinda sent her packing, so it was Storm that lost her husband.
