Here's a recent posting on a thread in a Comic Book Resources message board forum by Jonathan Maberry:
Marvel made the decision to have Shuri wear the mantle of the Black Panther. It wasn't something Reggie Hudlin (who introduced the change) or I (as current) writer had a say in. That means that T'Challa and Storm are not the central characters in the book. Shuri is. Marvel has been shaking things up all across the MU, and there has been a strong focus on the power of female characters --many of who are being given a shot at leading a book.
That said, Marvel has some pretty interesting plans for T'Challa and Storm over the next year.
On the other hand, even though I've always been a huge fan of T'Challa, I'm enjoying writing Shuri. I have another mini-series starting later this year that explores Shuri's personality, her life as the new ruler/spiritual leader/hero of Wakanda.
As for Doom...well, let's face it...the book is called DoomWar. He will be sharing equal priority with the combined team of Shuri, T'Challa, Storm, the FF, Deadpool and the other guest (who will be revealed in #5).
