Anyway in the real world space exploration and funding has been slashed in many countries around the world. I don't know why this is the case in the MU since they've got super space ships that can actually go FTL and they were attacked by the Skrulls not that long ago (and the Shiar, brood, kree, etc. at one point or another). I guess it just another case of where trying to match real world progress in books causes some minor plot holes.
Any1 else catch dat by mentioning dat Wakanda as d leading space program JH has basically re-confirmd Priest's Nyami-class Battlecruisers?
After many posts, questions and letter and email campaigns, I honestly couldn't say whether Marvel listened to us or not but I'd like to think they saw that Black Panther fans weren't going to accept anything less than the best for BP. And while things appear to be heading in the right direction, I don't think we can let up for one minute with our drive to push Panther to the levels that we expect him to be. Mr Hickman took one step forward. Let's see if he can keep going and make that giant leap.

Still it is my opinion. As far as you having to deal with you do or just ignore me. My intend was not to dismiss anyones view. Also pertaining to the contingency plans, one would think he would have ways to deal with an opponent. Be it Cap, Iron man, Wolvie or who ever. I wrote the statement " I think (once again my opinion) that he is the best. He has a plan to beat everyone from Franklin to Galactus. And just because people are to limited in there thinking to figure out a weakness that can be exploited then screw them. Shang Chi is good Black Panther is better deal with it." <=opinion
Sorry you took it to assumed that I was insulting you or dismissing you. (This is an apology for you and anyone else that assumed I was rudely dismissing them)
If you would like to discuss hand to hand combat with me go for it. We can use BP and who ever else as character models and we can come to a conclusion.
In the real world NASA and similar agencies haven't done manned missions to the Moon(or anywhere else for that matter) since the 70's.
On Marvel Earth it must be much the same deal. World outside your window and all that. Even though individuals like Reed and Doom go to outer space for the heck of it-there isn't any organized space exploring done in the MU(maverick mad scientists and thier organizations don't count). Even SWORD is only about just protecting Earth from aliens and not truly exploring space.
So the winner of the Panther's challege are gonna becaome space explorers to the star system they were shown.
There may be a little meta commentary there on Hickman's part ...I don't know...but I DO know that there are plenty of Space Buffs out there that wish NASA was going back to the Moon or Mars.
I just bought Klaws of the Panther 1-3 for 75 cents, and I want my money back....:). But really the story wasnt too bad, but the art was absolutely horrible.After reading this Shuri must be a member of the Defenders. Its picture perfect for that take on the character.
