> So what did everyone think of the first issue?

I thought it was a nice little first issue, I loved the part when she forcefully removed the air from the soldier’s lung.

The art was slight above average to me.

Nothing really negative to say about this issue, hopefully this will be a great series.

I have been tossing and turning in my coffin wondering how this mini-series would affect the marriage of the King and Queen. Reading the info for the coming months of BP on Marvel's website, it's billed as...Storm must decide between being an x-man and being queen, to save the life of a mutant.

Seems like we know early on, that this is not true, she's not fighting her husband, she's fighting Farouk, the Shadow King.

Now that we know, I've breathed a sigh of relief for the marriage, but wonder, if that takes the tension out of the story for me? Hasn't Storm fought Farouk before? (I love the John Byrne artwork when Xavier and Farouk meet for the first time!) I'm pretty sure this is not the second time they've met, but i guess thats what having 'arch-nemesis' is all about. Not being able to rid yourself of a threat completely. Ah, so this is the first time the Queen's baggage, not the King's, will affect Wakanda.

For me? I'm now looking forward to C. Yost telling a Wakanda story, not just a BP/Storm story. Mr. Hudlin has not given us nearly enough Wakandan politics compared to Mr. Priest. I'm sure the prejudeces we've seen glimpses of in WA#1 will spill over into the culture of the little African nation. Will the Xenophobia/Fear of Outsiders overtake the culture and produce a Skrull/McCarthy effect?

I loved the Panther/Storm political tour after their honeymoon, and Kirby's King Solomon Frogs was a nice tour to give T'Challa some great Skrull/Zombie knowledge for the future, but it's time for some good ole' Wakandan conspiracies and challenges to the throne. With the Queen by his side, our King will stand tall.

Mr. Yost, the gauntlet is thrown! I demand a good Wakandan story!
Power to the People!
