Priest has many issues.. especially blaming Marvel for not supporting him despite his plots get hokey the longer his books run.. but in this case he's 100 % right

He's shown an ability to really do great work at times, especially political things (See the poor and retarded version as Judd Winick) and yet Marvelhas really never given him a shot. That Captain America and the Falcon book was not a shot due to no one expecting Cap's fanbse to be able to support two books.

I remember when the Avengers needed a new writer circa that UNstuff, and Priestwould have been perfect.. yet Marvel briefly went with Chuck Austin(a much worse writer)

So yeah if I were in Priest's shoes I'd hold out for a mainstream white character

I couldn't agree more. Yes Priest can provide African-American perspective more realistically than most marvel writers. It would be great if he introduced some Black characters or took care of ones needing a dusting off (like Hudlin is doing now). But why limit himself? He would be in a much better position to do all of those things AFTER a critically aclaimed, well selling run on a big name Marvel property. I would read a Priest written Thor, Cap, Iron Man or Wolverine book.

ZEEEEEEEEEE-Chief
