I miss Dad and Dan.

and now they are moving him away from that role.

For a while there T'Challa was pretty much a textbook version of this: http://tvtropes.org/pmwiki/pmwiki.php/Main/MagicalNegro

He was wiser than everyone around him, but ultimately passive and irrelevant. A far cry from Priest's version, who could be immensely skilled but also make arrogant mistakes, and generally had both the strengths and warts of an active character.

Bendis, though, Bendis wrote him as THAT GUY, you know that guy, the one who says something immensely wise, then vanishes from the story while the main characters get both to screw up and to save the day.
