One questioner asked which character the panelists would like to see dead. "Tom Brevoort," joked Lowe.
However, Alonso said he wanted Namor dead, while Lowe finally settled on Thor.
Quoting this, because I want Namor/X-fans answer to this, too. If Wakanda demolished Atlantis or Utopia, they'd be screaming for revenge (not justice, but revenge).
And the reason I included X-fans is because they made some of the most hateful statements towards Panther/Wakanda. All because T'Challa married their token black alpha female.

However, I don't _expect_ Marvel to compromise Iron Man as a character to give Namor any, much less every satisfaction. I don't believe Marvel NOT doing that is some sort of insult to Namor fans and bi-racial people. I don't believe Marvel NOT doing that is some sort of conspiracy to make sure Namor never wins.
As much as we fans think of the characters as people who should react to everything that happens to / around them on panel, the truth of the matter is that isn't going to happen. They are only going to used to further some story that a writer wants to tell. Stuff that we think is pertinent is just going to get ignored, if it has nothing to do with that story. So, it basically gets reduced to fans talking smack at each other -- which can be fun ... or not.
There was more to that little fracas, than just _marrying_ Black Panther, but it's beyond rational discussion and there's no use talking about it.
More to the point, are you saying that BP fans want justice? Or revenge?
"That's not just "one man"! That's TONY FREAKING STARK. You're intel should've warned us that he was James Bond and "Q" wrapped in the same guy!" Cobra
I'm not really big on fantastic four, but what is Reed's relationship with Namor. Given that Reed and T'Challa are sworn brothers now would Reed jump into that fight? Would he simply mediate it? I'm sure someone will take Namor's side, but is there any reason Reed may be upset?
I honestly had no idea that Didio wanted Nightwing dead, as I don't keep up with DC.
Reed and Namor's relationship is a bit complicated, and over the decades has been written across the spectrum from 'kill each other' to 'friends you can count on.' Myself, I don't see them as friends, in the commonly used sense of the word. There's always going to be Susan between them -- but that's both a good thing and a bad.
I don't think Reed particularly wants to go home and tell Sue he did anything to Namor.
We've no idea of the parameters and meaning of Reed and T'challa's bond.
Generally speaking, Reed tends to make his decisions on what he thinks is the most logical action, even with his friends. I often wonder if he actually has a calculation for a friendship quotient, that he factors into his decisions.
I'm sure boy scout Captain America isn't going to let T'Challa kill him and weren't Dr. Strange and Namor somewhat friends?
