I'm not all BP fans, I tend to believe that fans no matter what character can all think for themselves. Besides, i'm a fan of many different characters. Axel Alonso is lambasted by "BP Fans," Really? Again, it's no different then the books I just mentioned. In this case, Black Panther is no different then Val, Jubilee, Psylocke, Scott Lang or any character with central focus.
And it would seem that the reverse is occurring--whether or not they have done in that past means nothing, the first issue focused on him and some people with the same beliefs as yourself were all upset. Yet, had you just paid attention to what was being said--I don't think the first issue would have been a problem.
Axel Alonso Former Black Panther editor and now EIC of Marvel. He knows the story; that's the difference between us and them.
Hmmmm. I guess Axel is interpreting things too?That said, we've found the best way to elevate a character is to make them important to the Marvel Universe -- especially right now, when fans want to know that what they're reading counts. For example: Given the role Jonathan has Black Panther playing in the Avengers, I'd expect him to be a breakout character next year, and a prime candidate for a new solo series.
*I'm excited about Black Panther's role in "New Avengers," and what that team will mean to the Marvel Universe.
And about "the Big plans" Brevoort was pretty straight up about that and explained that things came up and they put those big plans off until now. Stuff happens-- So like you said--believe what you want, but remember that Marvel is being upfront about it and his role. The question is are you listening? I don't think Axel has said anything about Panther since his transition to E.I.C--until now that is.
It seems you are the one parsing "maybe considered" totally ignoring " what Lynchpin character means--i will tell you, vital character. But believe what you want, I think Axel knows more then you about his role--after all he's the EIC.
