Actually, they stole ALL of Doom's money according to Walter DeClun, who was the guy who was managing it for Doom. And even if he could remake it easily, who's to say Wakanda can't do the same. Their knowledge of technology can enable them to rebuild their economy just as easily as Doom can.

Its curious that so many are distressed over the troubles Wakanda has endured in this storyline. If you look at virtually every single fictional kingdom in the Marvel Universe, whether its Asgard, Attilan, Atlantis or fill in the blank, they all eventually suffer some sort of devastating event -- and they all eventually comeback. Similiarly, almost every iconic hero eventually gets replaced by someone else temporarily. Whether its Spider-Man (Ben Reilly), Captain America (John Walker), Iron Man (Jim Rhodes), Thor (Eric Masterson), etc, someone will take over the role for awhile, and the original will always return. And T'Challa will eventually return to the role of the Black Panther. Anyone remember Kaspar Cole?

I know from a lot of Black Panther fans on Comic Book Resources that, although a lot of heroes do get temporarily replaced, this scenario seems to KEEP happening to T'Challa in almost every Black Panther volume. I don't think there would be so much displeasure if it didn't keep happening to the character.

First T'Challa was replaced by Killmonger (Priest's run), than T'Challa was replaced by Kasper Cole (Priest's run), and now T'Challa has been replaced by Shuri (Hudlin's run).

For other heroes who have around 600 comic book issues under his or her belt, the above wouldn't seem like much...but since T'Challa does not have as many comic book issues under his belt, being replaced three different times in the span of 7 years is a bit much.

Also, right now we have no idea what T'Challa and Storm are doing, but Marvel didn't waste any time in telling us what Shuri is going to be doing. I find the fact that T'Challa fans have to wait for news from Marvel on his and Storm's whereabouts after DoomWar to be downright disrespectful on the company's part.

I think someone on Comic Book Resources asked Tom Brevoort when we would receive news about T'Challa and Storm or something, and I think Brevoort was quoted as having said "In the future!"

If Brevoort really did say that, I find that to be a rather unprofessional response.

Sometimes I get the impression that Marvel thinks it can jerks fans around whenever the company sees fit...almost as if the company knows it will get our money, no matter what they decide to tell us.
