> Well I agree that an X-man can appear in other titles, I guess I just have an attachment to him as a mysterious loner, with a vast array of women who he has been involved with, that appear from time to time to shake things up, including Storm.And of course the possible Queenship of Wakanda was always an interesting bauble to swing in front of a female character. But I suppose there has to be a queen eventually. I preferred monica lynn the most. I liked how she was a total outsider, much like T'challa himself. But I think she somehow developed superpowers as well. It is also possible that I have been inundated by mutants for the past 25 years and am looking for a breather. Black Panther was always a refreshing break from everything else.

I never had any faith in Hudlin from the start. Priest worked hard in the comics industry for decades just to get a shot at a big brand superhero and he got shafted with Black Panther. However he turned it into the most interesting superhero in the Marvel Universe at the time. Did Black Panther sell well under Priest? It sold well enough to stay selling with great stories and was even hailed as the best comic of Marvel Comics at the time despite little to no publicity and support from Marvel Comics. 8\-\)

Hudlin on the other hand despite having no experience in the comics industry, got a free shot with virtually unlimited support from Marvel Comics at writing Black Panther who had become a very important character in the Marvel Universe under Priest. Then what does Hudlin do? He screws it up big time! He not only screws it up once, but over and over and over again. I mean damn, you would expect after the first story arc, the guy would figure out that he knows squat about comics, but no, instead the guy acts like he is the greatest comic book writer ever and he can do no wrong all the time. Under, Hudlin Black Panther has become a laughing stock. A character that just appears in crossovers with no significance whatsoever, leaving Wakanda behind to going around the world to do nothing, having a useless wife that takes up most of the attention, and fighting zombies again and again. \:'\(

Seriously, when I was first reading Priest's Black Panther I never would have thought that someone could screw up Black Panther in the future as badly as Hudlin has done.

Hudlin needs to get the shaft from Marvel, bring back the guy with the experience, and get red of the rookie with no talent. \:\-\)


Amen Brother! The reason Hudlin probably got carte blanche is because he is in the MOVIE/TV INDUSTRY! Marvel comics used to be in the comic publishing industry and now they are in the WANNABE MOVIE INDUSTRY! Unfortunately Marvel comics are kind of whores now. Sigh. And I agree with you about Storm as well! Someone should beg Priest to come back. Or maybe give some of the heart shaped herb to Grant Morrison. He could definately combine the facets of Priest, Kirby, and Mcgregor into one giant Shamanistic,Super Science,Geo-political mind blower! I'm sure many people will be aghast at that suggestion.
