Black Panther And The Agents Of Wakanda #1

    Cover by JORGE MOLINA
    Variant cover by LEINIL FRANCIS YU
    Hidden Gem variant cover by TBA
    From the pages of Jason Aaron’s AVENGERS! Vampires. Aliens. Angry fish kings. Black Panther’s hand-picked Agents of Wakanda can handle it all. And who better to lead them than the king of the world’s most technologically evolved country? Wakanda is making waves on the world’s map – and not everyone’s a fan. With General Okoye’s help, T’Challa will take Gorilla-Man, Ka-Zar and Wasp on a global fight for survival – to handle threats S.H.I.E.L.D. could only dream of!
    32 PGS./Rated T …$3.99

Please comment on this premiere! \:\)

"... to deal with immediate hazards the Avengers cannot."

To sum up, the new series is yet another generic Avengers spin-off with a name that mirrors Agents of Atlas (or Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. ?) and nearly the same goal than Secret Avengers (except that they don't have the same modus operandi at all. They react like an emergency unit instead).

I don't even understand why they are called Agents of Wakanda (= a country) if they are supposed to be the intelligence unit and backup team of the Avengers.

Also, if the Agents of Wakanda are supposed to be more discreet than the main Avengers team, why did T'Challa recruit the Wasp who is said to be, in the picture, a "frequent target of the paparazzi" ? Does the Wasp realize that she has officially become a foreign government agent working for Okoye, the field commander of the Wakandan special forces ? Do Roz Solomon & American Eagle realize it ?

Why does T'Challa say "my agents" if Okoye is the director of the Agents of Wakanda ?

With the same title, I would have imagined an entirely different concept and, in my view, much more original. I would have focused the book on the actual Wakandan agencies : Dora Milaje, Hatut Zeraze, the acolytes of the Panther Cult, the Musketeers of the royal family ... The series would have focused on political power games.
