Great-grandson.

That still leaves seven other great-grandparents of Bishop who could be black. Why assume they're all Aborigine?

You're right it is an assumption on my part, but it's a pretty damn logical one at that in my opinion. Can't we give the aborginee one superhero lol..

no but in all seriousness, the Bishop thing is a minor issue. The bigger issue is Hudlin's inability to properly characterize up to and especiall not being able to get general emotions across(would you belive Storm and T'Challa loved each other if they didn't say it every 3 pages?) ... as a side note he even failed to put any emotion into a wedding. Even Lobdell pulled that off with Scott and Jean's wedding..

The dialogue is hokey.. "that man loves your dirty drawers" and he somehow has turned BP, Storm and the Wakandan's from a proud people into some bizarre version of BET's comic view

It stings a bit because BlackPanther is one of my favorite characters, but I won't pretend the writing on the book isn't painful anymore.

Sorry I'm venting, but my expectations were super high for the issue after seeing the cover and it was just flat-out bad in my opinion.
