X-Men: Wakanda Forever #1 [PART 2 of 3]
> Former Dora Milaje member and eternal troublemaker Nakia, A.K.A. Malice, has set a trap to lure the Black Panther into her obsessive clutches! Step One: Take out the Panther’s one true love, Storm of the X-Men! But Nakia didn’t count on the interference of her former warriors-in-arms, the fierce Dora Milaje — and they’re hot on her trail. Can Okoye, Ayo and Aneka capture Malice before she wreaks havoc on their king’s life — again? The talented Ray-Anthony Height joins best-selling author Nnedi Okorafor for the second installment of WAKANDA FOREVER!

Pretty average run-of-the-mill adventure in a sadly gimmicky numbered package. It feels like the wrong way to market this Event and the "2nd Part" on the cover doesn't help, imo. Then again, Marvel has done this multi #1 crossovers before and probably has sales evidence to support the decision. Still don't like that about it, though.

Supervillainess Malice(Nakia) launches a pretty standard power upgrade scheme that goes awry and 3 X-men and 3 Dora Milaje make efforts to stop her. The only story element that really got a rise out of me was this page:

where the she wrongly assumes the math answer could also be "1" which is WRONG, afaik, and that answer can ONLY be "9". The art was okay; Storm's hairdo dujour was okay too. What did you think of the story - or the math?
