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.
