    I take breaks often from this thread because no matter how long I'm away from it if I come back the same damn argument is going on with the same damn people. It's a pissing match under the guise of a debate/discussion. No ones mind has been changed and no greater truth has been found from the back and forths.

    Drop the personal business and attacks. This thread isn't about YOU!
    Wakanda, Black Panther....all good. That is what it's about, not other fans/posters. Period.
    Posts deleted, take your insinuations and personal shots to PM or better yet drop it altogether and get back to discussing comics.

    C'mon gents & ladies. We are all comic fans here. We come to this thread to talk BP and Wakanda. Quit fighting personal battles and looking for ulterior motives with one another. Stick to the comics. We have plenty to disagree about as is with those.

    If so. Yep, I think it lends itself nicely to a modern origin story. Introduces the nation itself and the Black Panther title as well as some worthy villains. Batroc in ze cinema!?! Magnifique!
    Actually no, it was referring to Priest's first arc, loosely based of course.

    Thanks, I did suggest they do that at the end of my defense posts.

    Unfortunately, you did erase some excellent points I made overall, but It's understandable.

    That might work too. I kinda like the idea of Hudlin's origin to set things up and then take the character in a Priestly direction from there.

    jabu called them "usual overplayed histrionics" in a recent post. I just about died laughing.

    On the other hand it reveals a lot about his personality (which is a good thing). And if I could get over SZ, I think I can get over Kieran. All is fair.

    Btw... Jabu, I responded to that one post you asked about... Sorry it came so late. It may have gotten swamped in all the traffic this thread's been getting lately, lol.

If you asked him that very question, that's the answer he would give you. His work was not always sophisticatedly written, but that was the point. It's like that Jay-Z ad that aired on BET during the Obama campaign... THERE WAS A PURPOSE. I'm not calling you racist, prejudiced, or anything of the sort. But I am letting you know that you may not have considered what you were actually saying. Maybe if you actually read the series, you'd understand a little better, lol.

    Look at it this way; there was no "LCD" for Priest's run... Nor McDuffie, Liss, or McGregor. But Hudlin attempts to appeal to a younger/more urban crowd and they get labelled as the "LCD"... that's a little off. The man wasn't writing porn.

    I know its not what you intended by saying that. But what it entails is the unfortunate truth.


    'Flo If I may comment, I totally get what you're saying and Hudlin actually said that was the case, but isn't the point of a successful comic and character to get the attention and appeal of all fans? By Hudlin doing that, he turned off a lot of non-black fans and turned away potential ones, and thus the polarized reaction to Panther and Storm that we have now. He definitely reached the black base more, (and why wouldn't he with his connections in the black community) but through the way it was handled largely turned off other fans. I remember a white guy working in a comic book store that felt with the way Hudlin was writing it was saying "this comic isn't for you", which Hudlin in some words has literally said. He was also told by some black comics customers that he can't judge the book cause he's not black. Do we really think Panther can become an A-list hero and actually get a movie that will do good like that?

    Even Obama did not get elected by black people alone.

    I do think Hickman and Marvel is on to the right track of getting back some of the character's prominence an possibly growing his fanbase more.

    Ha. I remember typing that. I kill myself. Kieran's alright though...

    No worries, I think I saw it in the midst of all the love and hug-filled posts that are gone now. I'll reply to it.

    I do enjoy your opinions though.

    Two sorta obvious candidates to me are Vincent Cassel (does capoeira as seen in the Oceans movies) and Jean Dujardin (his OSS 117 was priceless) and both can be charming, macho as well as sleazy, the best qualities of my preferred Batroc.

    How about Mads Mikkelsen for Klaw?

    No, most comics don't make it a point to cater to "all fans". Did it ever occur to that white guy working in the comic book shop that the way he felt reading Hudlin's Black Panther is how many non white comic book fans might feel reading other comics?

    Aw man, I really hate when my favs have to fight each other, both have special abilities, tech and stuff that would give them the upper hand, so ultimately I would give to BP, unlike spider man he is simply a better combatant and more likely to render serious bodily harm or kill to win. Funny thing is he told spiderman that he would beat him hand to hand(something along those lines, not the actual quote).
