First of all, I would completely erase Hudlin's Black Panther universe. I would dissolve everything Hudlin did with Black Panther. I might just have it that Ross heard some crazy story from somebody about Black Panther. This story encompasses the whole Hudlin run.
Ross of course, gets upset and punches this somebody for ruining Black Panther's name and then he tells the real story.

It starts off where Priest left off. T'Challa is back in Wakanda preparing for war and trying to reconsolidate power as several factions are preparing to split off from Wakanda. Erik Killmonger is back to his old tricks and is getting ready to take over Wakanda but through political manipulations not yet war. Meanwhile T'Challa is preparing to challenge Killmonger to a duel in order to fully reclaim the title of chieftain and to quell insurrection. This time around T'Challa will beat Killmonger.

While this is going on Everett K. Ross has been promoted to a new position and is going to meet the President of the US. When he meets the President he tells Ross that he needs Ross' help to get the vibranium from Wakanda. The vibranium is instrumental in the creation and deployment of new weapons with which to defend the US. The US military which is streched to the breaking point needs the vibranium to complete new weapons without which the US will lose several conflicts around the world. He also tells Ross that they have acquired someone to help them. He reveals this to be the Reverend Achebe.

At the same time the White Wolf who knows a little bit about what is going on is preparing a plan with which to destroy the infrastructure of the US.

The White Tiger has been training at the Wakandan Embassy for some time now, trying to figure out what to do with his life and attempting to lead a normal life when he receives a package that reveals that his father is Kibuka.

Lastly, Monica Lynne has become a famous jazz singer with her albums selling like crazy however she misses Wakanda and T'Challa.

From there on the Black Panther becomes an epic story unlike any other. Bring back Priest and company!

Hey!! some great ideas out there, I like the threat of several factions splitting off Wakanda, bringing back Killmonger, that's a must, the idea of U.S govmt lurking over Vibranium for weapons is sweet (plus it'll involve Iron man, which adds som').

For purpose of continuity, I would keep Hudlin's BP universe, just don't want to go over another Start, plus that's what great writers do, induce new element in a plot to redirect it into something great.

To add more to the political dimension, I wouldn't have T'challa fight Killmonger for the mantle, I find it kinda unfit of the advance civ', and too cliche.

What is sure is that there's enough ideas out there for Marvel to question Hudlin creative direction.

Last but not least, Storm is too hot to remove her form my man T'challa, I like her out there using lightning to cook a giant Turkey...

Happy Thanksgiving!!!
