If you wanna do it, do it right..

Let's talk about Black Panther.
The Reginald Hudlin-New Marvel's Trying Too Hard To Make Him Important By Constantly Shoving His Total Badass-ness Down Our Throats-Black Panther as featured in Marvel Comics' Black Panther Volume 4 Number 24.

(This "down our throats" strategy is also working out great for DC with Supergirl, btw.)
I hate this comic, and I hate how it makes me hate Black Panther.

Gee, thanks for the vote of confidence, Carlton. Now do that stupid dance.
You can have him be a "badass" without writing every other character he runs into like a sycophantic fanboy/girl.

You know what else this comic taught me about Black Panther?
So he's into old ladies (Storm's grandma in this instance) and dirty underpants?
So what does he do with dirty underpants?


But it's just girl's underpants, at least... right?


So he's using his incredible flexibility and agility to flip face first into Captain America's ass?

Bravo, Marvel. That's certainly a more surprising character revelation than the phony affair with Photon you tried to fake us out with in this issue.
