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 too stopped buying the Panther regularly about the time of the marriage, with a purchase every-now-and-again, but finally gave up completely at the zombie arc.

Panther, as a character, came across more regally and assured in earlier incarnations. Now, he just seems like any other character who has access to near-absurd deus ex machinas, with stories that are sometimes ok, stories that are many times "meh", and stories that are sometimes weak. That's not enough to get me to buy it again.

I am not so in-love with past continuity that I refuse to accept any changes in it. But the direction of this incarnation of the Panther just doesn't provide me the character appeal, and the intricacies of a well-plotted, complex (but engaging) story.

I really do think Marvel should move Hudlin off this book. I think Christos Gage would do a much better job, frankly pick anyone who might be able to give T'Challa back the majesty he had as a ruler, friend, lover, and combatant from earlier incarnations.
