And? That's no reason to toss the origin that's stood the test of time with one Hudlin's shoe horned in.

Really? That's news to me. Got a link?

Look, when you're doing it, when you're putting up the money, you get to do what you want.

And it's not like "Who Is The Black Panther" is some kind of polar opposite story in comparison to FF #52 and #53. The basics are still there: Klaw kills his father while T'Challa is a child, T'Challa as an adult takes his revenge.

Anyone who reads FF #53 and "Who Is The Black Panther" side by side can clearly see that.
(And if you haven't read both, sign up to Marvel Digital Comics for a month and read them and see for yourself.)

No, the blog entry is no longer there. I read it on Priest's blog though, where he said it himself. So feel free to ask him.

And how do you not know this, I thought this was common knowledge among us Black Panther geeks?

When Wesley Snipes had the rights Hudlin was trying to get Priest to write the movie. Priest isn't a big fan of Hollywood so he turned him down.
