> I've read most BP issues, and i dont remember Democracy coming up. "Modernizing" Wakanda might not be the best term, since it is commonly known as one of the most technologically, advanced societies in the Marvel Universe. Even Reed Richards has been impressed w/ the way T'Challa is running his country.
> Would be a great story line, I've loved the Wakanda political stories of the past (Khyber Island, the Atlantis/Lemuria/Wakanda triangle).

i think it would be a great storyline too but i cant imagine any writer having the courage to do it. its an almost untouchable topic in the BP series. Either BP steps down and is no longer the hereditary king admitting that he wasnt what was best for his country. or BP fights against democracy and basically makes the unthinkable point that a total monarchy might be better than a democracy in some cases. i cant imagine any writer being good enough to pull that off.

i doubt its a topic that will ever be addressed (too bad, great potential)

> > has there ever been a story about an attempt to Democratize Wakanda? It would be interesting. I mean the Panther is basically a monarch, a good one apparently, but an outdated concept. it would be interesting to see if the panther would fight against it. hed be opposing democracy basically if he tried to keep himself as ruler. I mean if hes interested in modernizing his country this would be an obvious step.
