I recall that when Priest was writing Black Panther, Black Panther became a sensation. The comic was hailed as the best comic book out on the market. Although in sales it did well it did not do as good as it could have the comic received critical plaise.

Back then, Black Panther was even an integral part of the Avengers, even going as far as saving the team from Ultron. Black Panther even took down Iron Man. Now Civil War has come and passed with Black Panther doing absolutely nothing of significance before, during or even after Civil War. In fact, Black Panther has become so insignificant that his wife Storm now gets most of the attention and Black Panther has become nothing more than some background character. I even saw a graphic novel recently titled Storm with a huge picture of Storm and Black Panther a shadow in the back.

Regardless of sales numbers the reality is that when Priest was writing Black Panther those that read the comic book cared about the character of Black Panther and what happened to him, today those that read Black Panther in general could care less about what happens to Black Panther as nothing really happens at all.

And this is why I can't take anything you say seriously.

You don't like Hudlin... yes we know.

You don't like the current run.. got it.

You think Black Panther is currently being portrayed as "insignificant" ... huh?

In no way is Black PAnther being portrayed as "insignificant," in any sense of the word. He played a significant a role in the recent Civil War crossover and is currently joining (possibly leading) the Fantastic Four. That is insignificant?

Really?

I understand one's dislike can blind them to facts (as seen by everything you have ever written on this board). Maybe you need glasses. Black Panther is currently getting the biggest push in his entire existance. Could there be a better writer? sure. But let's not face pure facts. There is no question about the importance in the MArvel Universe that the Black PAnther is receiving today.

P.S. Priest's run was only good for about the first 2 years. Golden frogs, Luke Cage still in a tiara, Black Goliath with the open chest costume, Hulk in da club, Ross, brain aneurysm, Happy Pants Panther, T'Challa in the Wild Wild West... Nope sorry, FOH!
