there is your insanely unrealistic company crossover pitch
a green lantern/black panther story by johns
Yes, if you really want to help BP for a solo run, then you have to build up his rogues. Killmonger trying to kill Storm. White Wolf seeking revenge against Atlantis and Namor. What has happened to Wakanda should be the launching point for somke great villians. Like many have said, BP cant kill Namor, but White Wolf,Killmonger, and Shuri(I see more potential of her as a ruthless dictator). ou build these up in FF,Avenger, and Xmen books, ou then set the stage for a solid BP series.

Killmonger honestly should be in many ways T'Challa's Dark shadow...he is ruthless and has been shown to be many ways as intelligent and masterful with plans as Panther, with a huge amount of charm to persuade others to follow him. Achebe is an unpredictable madman that can throw T'challa off guard since he is crazy and can be every bit as sick and deranged and ruthless as the Joker.
I've always thought Solomon Prey should be resurrected as a vampire born of science, and he was an intelligent thinker as well. Plus his monstrous wings were very cool. the white wolf and those who choose to still follow him in the hatut zeraze could be like Wakanda's renegade version of the hand, who try to take BP out due to hunter's obsession with wanting to be T'Challa. here's a lot to work with in his rogues...
The thing is controversial is my opinion on and what I disagree about with--not killing Namor. Hickman can't repeat (and *won't* repeat) the story from Priest ["That Business With the Avengers" #6-8]. Where he beats Kraven within a inch of his life but was stopped by the Avengers with Iron Man demanding that he stops. After Doomwar, there was something similar were he gave noble speech-- we are headed down a slipper path were Panther is all talk, speeches and phrriyc victories. He want lay his nation and kill his people and he will give a speech about it. At the end of NA--the message should be not to cross him or Wakanda. If he says he going to do something--then he is going to do it.
Yes controversial, but a talk and walk would tarnish the run a lot for me, personally.
