> 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.

It hasn't been Priest limiting himself, it's been Marvel. He WANTS (or at least did for a while after his BP run) to work on a book that does not feature black protagonists, to prove that he can be more than just Marvel's "black writer." But Marvel never gave him the chance.

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.

Check it out: Shu and I teamed up!

It's really sad to hear that.
I have always been a BPanther fan...and I love what Priest did on the title.
I think he has some amazing talent...I would give almsot anything he wrote at least a shot. I don't care what the color of your skin is...if you can write well...you can write well. \:\)
