Default Re: EVERYTHING Black Panther - Part 2

Sorry, but I can't co-sign any of that.

In my opinion, he applied the same lame "tactics" he used in "transforming" BET to Black Panther. His run had a very shallow, commercial feel to it--at least to me. And everything felt rushed. Especially the Storm marriage situation. It just came out of nowhere; very little development, hardly any background. It was, for all intents and purposes, an arranged marriage.

I remember rolling my eyes when he had T'Challa say something to the effect of "You've got me tripping boo." I was like, "tripping over what? You guys barely know eachother." Then came the rushed retcon story of their childhood which read like a "ready/mix--just add water" recipe.

He had an opportunity to take what could've one of the most iconic couplings/marriages--on par with Reed and Susan, Scott and Jean or Mary Jane and Peter--and handled it like a footnote. Perhaps he's not the "worst" writer of all time, but he was lazy as hell.

"Give The Rights Back To Marvel" is officially now a thing.
