Oh, and while we're at it, Emma's slut ass needs to be punished, too. She set the whole thing in motion.
And Colossus was completely unlike himself.
And Emma was completely unlike herself... if we're to accept her "hooker with a heart" makeover.
And Scott was completely unlike himself. And frankly, at the end there, he did much worse than Namor did in Wakanda.
Illyana was the closest to herself, but she didn't really have far to go.

I know Marvel and other companies had weird things happening but...don't mention the racial segregation on Vathlo Island.....Superman had some creppy offensive stuff in his books
She technically only pointed Namor in the right direction... she never actually TOLD him to do anything. And that's a sign of a good puppeteer... she got him to do what she wanted in a way where essentially was all his idea.
The ONLY person that knows enough about what happened to throw Emma under the bus is Emma. But I don't think his pride would allow him to even consider the possibility of her manipulating him. So in regards to Wakanda, I think Emma is gonna get away with it.
And in her defense, it's not like we actually know Emma wanted him to attack all of Wakanda. It's POSSIBLY she just wanted him to attack the Avengers, and Namor himself was the one that decided to take things as far as he did. Though in hindsight I suppose Emma probably should have saw that coming, even if that's not what she actually wanted.
This is going to sound really douche but Black Panther fans should be happy Walkanda got flooded by Namor.
It's the most interesting BP has been in years and it's simply because everyone is wondering how he will respond..... if he responds at all.

Unlike a lot of BP fans on these boards I liked Doom War. And I thought BP: Man Without Fear was the best BP book we've gotten since Priest. But I certainly agree that the current stuff creates a lot of potential as well. And it essentially uses the same rationale used since Doom War... stories stem from bad stuff happening. That's the fuel which feeds dramatic tension in stories.
So I do agree that storywise, I think Wakanda getting flooded will be good for the character. It gives writers something big to play with. And ultimately I think we'll walk away from this with a more uber Black Panther than we got going into it.
What if you are a fan of Wakanda itself as a concept?
Personally, I don't like the idea of Wakanda ending up like Haiti. It should still be the mysterious yet powerful nation it was made to be by Kirby and Lee.

Wakanda will be "magically" restored to what it was as soon as the writer wants it too. Hickman himself returned Wakanda to it's default setting after what happened with Doom War... and I'm sure Hickman himself or the next writer will do the same after Hickman is done with whatever is going to happen to Wakanda next.
That's just how it works. It's no different than Stark Industries going bankrupt every few years in Iron Man, or Asgard being Ragnorocked every few years in Thor.
