> We've already talked about Priest ad infinitum. Who else would be a good writer for this book?

Geoff Johns. He'd do a great job boosting sales and building Black Panther's character. He's also talented at portraying villains in interesting ways which T'Challa could use with his enemies. I'd love to see what Johns does with Klaw or Man-Ape.

Warren Ellis. I know probably just as many people hate him as love him, but I would definitely read a Black Panther title written by him. I would just have to see the things he does with Wakandan science and society.

Greg Pak. With Planet Hulk, he proved he can write characters and cultures so far different from what we know and keep it interesting. That's the kind of skill a Black Panther write would need what with Wakanda and all that.

Ed Brubaker. ...Why not? It's Ed Brubaker. Sure, I didn't care much at all for his Uncanny X-Men space opera, but he rocks on Cap, DD and Iron Fist. If he took a shot at writing Black Panther, I'd be there for it.

Greg Rucka, possibly. He obviously likes his political thrillers and Black Panther is probably the best book to tackle international politics in the MU. I think a Rucka run could be cool to see how Wakanda sits in the international scene.

If he did with Panther's foes what he did with Flash's Rogues, then T'Challa could end up with the most interesting opponents in the Marvel U.

I like Ellis on certain projects, but I'm not sure if I'd dig him on Panther.

Planet Hulk has convinced me Pak is a master. I think he could do really well on this book.

The single-character, more down-to-Earth books he has done, he's knocked out of the park. His X-Men work hasn't worked for me (including Deadly Genesis), and I think it's because it's too far from what he excels at. I really think he could give us a cool take on Panther if he keeps within his comfort zone.

I haven't read as much Rucka as I've been meaning to, but I know enough about the guy's work that I'd be totally up for a Panther run by him.


I'd also throw in Brian K. Vaughan (Ex Machina + Runaways + The Hood + Pride of Baghdad + Y The Last Man = total brilliance fit for BP).
