Also funny how he is commenting that African heads of state go nuts but fails to mention that many of them are in the pocket of European government and financial institutions. A bit of a revisionist history from the ol Canuck.
The weirdest, most wrong part? The Torch goes to Africa and warns the Golden Age Ka-Zar (not Kevin Plunder) that a tidal wave is coming. Torch tells Ka-Zar to build an arc to carry all the animals. Ka-Zar does, and the jungle animals are saved. No mention is made of any of the people who live in the Congo and are presumably washed out to sea.
The whole point of the story is that the X-Men, like well-meaning Americans and Europeans, are basically tourists. They see a problem, rush in to fix it, leave, then forget all about it. Dr. Crocodile and his people have to live with the consequences of those actions and don't have the luxury of returning to a secret headquarters when the fighting is done.

There has been some conversation about who would be Tchalla's love interest in the movie, if there ever was one.
If they were doing a Black Panther movie, I would make Nikki, Ross' boss/girlfriend in the Priest series the love interest. I'd just make her Asian.
Use Monica Lynn, or any other African American character and the movie risks being labed as a "black product". It also occurs to me that heroes usually only get ONE sidekick/helper(Batman/Robin, Lone Ranger/Tonto and Green Hornet/Kato). So Tchalla having two Dora's assisting him is overkill by movie logic.
If you are giving him a helper/sidekick, it should be Shuri (possibly pretending to be simply his driver).
I see most of the movie taking place in NYC, as Tchalla hunts his father's killer who has gone to ground there.
Which would explain Shuri's motivation for being there as well.
I find the Namor thing funny.
Death of Xavier - Cyclop's fault. Acknowledged by the world at large, specifically Magneto.
Betraying Emma - Cyclop's fault. Acknowledged by Emma.
Emma's Betrayal - Emma's fault. Acknowledged by Scott.
Magik's special prison (Hell) - Magik's fault, hence her considering herself a fugitive.
Namor's attacking Wakanda - The Black Panthers' faults? Or Storm's fault for not helping?
Neither option makes sense. Not even in universe. But I can see why the annulment was done. After the P5, I'm sure Wakanda trusts no mutants, former queen or not.

But the idea that he would just walk for stuff like this didnt even fly in the golden age.

It's foolish to hate characters for actions that are controlled by writers.
If you don't like a character's behavior, blame the writer.

Yeah seems out of character for wolverine. He is the guy u expect to hate all governments as a rule. Now frost saying that I can see.
