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).

I agree with this.
I think this whole thing of shunning his wife to "find himself" is pretty forced and weak if you ask me. I'm just not buying it.
It seems more in character for both to find the strength in their vows and what it means to be married and be that rock for each other.

I know old school Panther fans really wanna see the gritty, inner-city grass-roots Panther of old, but things would really have to devolve for the character in order to make it seem legitimate. I know we've seen it a hundred times with comic characters (for the millionth time with DD--that's why we're even reading BP right now), but it would just seem a more plausible direction for royalty like T-Challa. I would rather have Storm disappear unexpectedly, die (like those X-Men tend to do for a while), or be trapped somewhere to explain this solo trek, rather than put the "real" Panther life on hold.
