> ...since a good majority of Hudlin's detractors, especially on this board, do so while asking for the return of Priest (another black writer), it seems even less of a "racial" issue.

It has little to do with the race of the writer as much as it does the portrayal of the black character. A large number of fans of most characters praise writers for making the character more unbeatable, except for Panther fans. Apparently, as Priest did, Panther should always be a tad below top tier ground level characters, or at most even with them. No one on this board has complained about T'Challa taking a beating in the recent EMH2. Any other board would have shown complaints. I only saw complaints on Hudlin's board.

Panther fans hardly ever argue his case on the Battle Board. It seems that T'Challa is fine as long as doesn't rise to a certain level of formidability. I realize that formidability is not everything when it comes to characterization and is probably not the most important thing, but I question the double standard.

Buddy, I argueed for T'Challa against Batman at the original Battleboard. So screw you.
