I wouldn't quite say those terms were applicable to Ororo. T'Challa asked her to trust him, and she's giving him the benefit of the doubt like any trusting, loving spouse would. And she surely loves him. We're talking about someone who was willing to give up her own life in Death's realm in order to save that of her husband. Now, its debated as to whether that trust was misplaced, but I wouldn't fault her just yet for giving T'Challa the opportunity he asked her for. After all, Luke Cage has done the same thing, for the moment anyway.

The thing I'm beginning to hate about all of this so far is that T'Challa's behavior (and Ororo's) are all tied up with a particular writer's whims...if T'Challa does NOT change his behavior, the blame for such a move can only be blamed on the writer...but unfortunately a lot of comic fans who already have a problem with Black Panther might see that as a further excuse to bash the character, versus bashing the wroter's particular take on a character.

Although I should add that *some* comic fans do blame certain writers for how they choose to portray Ororo and T'Challa...

I think a lot of us would like to see T'Challa, after his mission in Hell's Kitchen is over, learn to accept more help from time to time and realize that he does not always have to carry burdens alone, and that he should open up to Ororo a LOT more. However, if writers choose to not show T'Challa doing that, it could be detrimental to the character(s).
