It is unfortunate that Marvel decided to do this.

I started getting into BlackPanther during the period when Geoff Johns was writing the Avengers and the Black Panther took out the Red Skull. I even enjoyed the political clashes bwt him and Iron Man.

When the new series came out in 2005, I was impressed by the back history and political intrigue. Further, the re-introduction of Storm into T'Challa's life and then the marriage was fantastic and changed the Marvel Universe.

However, the downfall of the current series began after Civil War when BP and Storm joined the FF. The series lost its luster, the political intrigue and a chance to focus on the new first couple of the Marvel Universe.

The Secret Invasion tie-ins were fantastic! A vast improvement since the stories in Civil War. Then I just picked up the Storm solo title X-Men: World's Apart which had an impressive first issue.

Unfortunately, Marvel has to fem a classic character. I'm not interested in the Black Pantheress. I am interested in Black Panther & Storm.

I don't know what is going to happen but it would be a shame to pull Storm back to her X-Men family.

I will not be getting the series.

That's my two bits.

Thanks for the link and news SOH, I logged in hoping to have some news, but this...what a bunch of Idiots...There is no enough liquor on earth to sink this news if it goes through...so much potential wasted, and now they give up on the character instead of upgrading the stories...

If they insist on having a pantheress, here is a suggestion: Explore the mutual mistrust between BP and Iron-man when it comes to the powered community. Have the clash rise to a level so dangerous that they have to find something to appease the tension. That thing being reintroducing Mr. Ross as a U.S emissary to Wakanda, and Introducing Shuri (T'Challa's sister who is begging for a larger role) as her brother's replacement among the avengers (initiative).

That way you'll have your pantheress and we will see how T'challa becomes that tactitian genius again by using Ross and Shuri behind doors (or watch how their allegiance would be tested). In the meantime, T'Challa and Storm can move to higher level of adventures, threats or conflicts that a true writer can explore with those fantastic characters.

Guess we'll all be wearing black for T'challa soon...

Peace out

I suspect Black Pantheress is T'Challa's sister.
But I would much prefer T'Challa in the lead role, and written well.

Marvel's reaching. I won't be buying it.

This is freaking crazy.

So, T'Challa is out for good and a meaningless character that was never part of the continuity is in?

Joe Quesada you are officially crazy.

Reginald Hudlin do everyone a favor and quit.

Why is everyone panicking?

Has T'Challa ever left the throne before? Has someone ever donned the vibranium weave, ceremonial garb of the Panther? Has T'Challa ever had to focus on other aspects of his life other than being the Champion of Wakanda?

Yes, yes, and yes.

You are crazy if you think T'Challa is retiring, he'll be more active than ever. That super mind of his will only allow him to sit still for so long. The Panther mythos is not only about T'Challa, but about all the Black Panthers through history. I believe Marvel knows what they have with T'Challa, a creation from Lee/Kirby that not only changed comics, but helped change american society. T'Challa will not be going away.

I think the fans have to compare this senario with T'Challa's best friend, Steve Rogers. Arguably, Mr. Brubaker has turned Captain America into one of Marvels finest comics, can Mr. Hudlin do the same? Let's give this new panther a try, and see what T'challa does with his time. This doesnt bode well for T'Challa and Storm for the ending of World's Apart series...

Humbly submitted,
MorteM

When Hudlin basically scrapped the whole Priest run, I stopped buying Black Panther.

I am not against this new direction as such; I will wait until I have a chance to evaluate the work on its own merits before I form an opinion. Its not a bad idea as such - what will make or break it is the actual setup and execution.

I see what you're saying, but first, Hudlin is not Brubaker, and second, with CA we had like 2 years of setup before any changes were made. Shuri sporadically showing up doesn't cut it. I feel like a lot of fans think this is going to be shoved down our throats.

Hopefully, T'Challa (minus Panther garb) will end up in the hands of a competent writer.

Priest said he's working on some new projects that are yet to be revealed. I hope T'Challa is included in Priest's new assignments.

This is Reginald Hudlin's last chance at Marvel. He started out strong, especially brining in Storm as his wife. However, since Civil War, the series has gone downhill with the exception of Jason Aaron's SI trilogy. The fight to keep T'Challa as Black Panther was not winnable at this time. I fear that the female Panther will tank cancelling the series all together. Hudlin's time with the Panther has ended long ago. A new writer is needed to tell the tales of the new first couple of the Marvel Universe, T'Challa and Ororo.
