How many "unbelievables" are there?

Nice review Babs. I'm also curious as to Morlon's involvement in this series. However I don't believe the last panel is about bringing Morlon to Wakanda. I think its the Alter or Resurrection. It was used before to bring Killmonger (Black Panther's arch foe) back to life once before. It may be what Shuri's mother was referring to when she tells Storm there is one final hope to bring BP back. But that its so dangerous that she dare not speak of it in front of the others. She seemed really shady in this issue to me. I'd keep an eye on her.

Man...Babs will never get to touch my comics.....crazy bending the books chick. lol (Nice to tab it for the review though....your a thinker)

So is there a new BP?

Also like her doing Cat claws as she talks.

I have to say I disagree. The last panel talks about how weak Wakanda is. They refer to it as a "broken gazelle" and how they should "take advantage of this opportunity." By bringing Morlon into the equation, they would utilize him to further weaken the infrastructure of Wakanda. And what does Morlun have to do with her, anyway? Are you saying that she would kill her own son?

As for T'Challa's mother, I really think she's just concerned for the safety of her country and I don't think she agrees with Storm's decision.

That's a possibility. The symbol on the floor somewhat reminds me of Killmonger's battle helmet is why I was thinking its the Alter of Resurrection. Plus that would explain what BP's mother was talking about, something so dangerous she didnt want to mention it in front of the others. But that's speculation on my part. Morlon seems an odd fit for this story. It will be interesting to see how that plays out.

And I'm not saying she wants to kill her own son. I'm just saying she seemed a lil shady throughout the whole issue. Everthing Storm said she kinda balked at or questioned. I dont think she'd do anything to hurt her son. But hurting Storm on the other hand......

Not yet. The arc is leading up to that.

I'm loathe to admit it, but I'm reading BP and I don't hate it. I'm interested to see what's going on with the Lion Totem. Not sure if it's related to Killmonger (I don't think I'd like that because we recently saw Killmonger and I want something new, also, Killmonger's connection seems to be with leopards) or not. It would be cool to see if there was a Lion god/cult waiting for the opportunity to bring up its own servant (like BP is for the Panther god). Dunno where Morlun fits in other than he kills totems and could be a challenge for the new BP and or this hypothetical Lion.


As for whatever T'Challa's mom was talking about, it might be the resurrection alter like Gambler was saying, but if so, I don't think the thing on the last page was that. The Lion thing seems secret and unconnected, something she probably wouldn't know about.

To save Wakanda just find Josiah X and let him pretend to be the BP

Morlun is in this series? But spidy killed him!!!! (DAMN YOU OMD!!!) I'm so getting this series now cause Morlun is awesome.

#12 Posted by warlock360 (28050 posts) - - Show Bio

Loved it aswell, also love the fact that its booming now, and just a couple of months  ago they were gonna drop it completely.


Now, one scene kind of interested me, when "the incident" happened, there was a whole pannel with doom standing alone and making a face


why the face if he thought he reached his goal?
#13 Posted by TheDrifter (26555 posts) - - Show Bio

Morlun showing up is a BAD sign. Last he fought Spider-man (although this probably is'nt in continuity), he ate Spider-Man's eye.

#14 Posted by Midnightist (10858 posts) - - Show Bio

Ok T'challa dipped and didn't tell anyone not even Storm............ I know who the next Black Panther is T'challa havin an affair with some chick on the side and has a daughter and Namor found out and showed uo to try and black mail him with it LOL j/k although the unknown daughter thing may be possible


But as far as Morlun is concerned I'm not really liking how that going to be involved because I'm not even sure what his purpose is anymore cause after the recton in Spider-man he should maybe be alive but isn't I don't really like seeing him in anything other than Spider-man but he may want to hunt T'challa because he will be counted as a totum but looking back there where three types of totums. The first are fakes (guys like Dr. Ock who say they are like an animal but really aren't ) then there are those who steal the power guys like Scorpion who used science to gain powers but where not given willingly by the animal) and last there are the real deal people who are given animal powers by that animal (Spider-man because the spider after become radioactive bit him of its on free will). However Morlun prefers to only hunt the real deal because only the real deals extend his life span for thousands of year although he will eat the others but Black Panther to me seems more like either a fake or someone who stole the power but more like a fake since the heart herb had nothing to do with a Panther directly if I'm correct.

Great review Babs. You make me want to go pick up the issue even though I am a week behind.

The Panther god chose T'Challa to be the Black Panther. He couldn't be it without its approval so he definitely got the power of the panther totem willingly.

Ok then I was never that into Black Panther so I didn't know but then Morlun would really want to hunt him cause not only is he the real deal then he would also be pure (Spider-man wasn't pure cause of the radiation)

That's the problem is we don't know what has happened and what hasn't in OMD/BND.  Quesada has said that pretty much everything has happened but obviously it couldn't have.  Maybe they'll address it, maybe not.

Really good review Babsy :D it was Unbelievable, Unbelievable, Unbelievable XD :P


#25 Posted by King Hyperion (3715 posts) - - Show Bio

I bet Doom made a deal with that other tribe so they can resurrect Morlun, that way Morlun can go after T'Challa and eat him. Then with T'Challa out of the way and The Panther God having been consumed by Morlun there will be NOTHING to protect Wakanda from Doom (Wakandan Technology won't save them once T'Challa and The Panther God have gone bye-bye and Storm...even she can't hold a candle to DOOM!) and thus Wakanda becomes an extension of Latveria and all of its people are forced into eternal slavery...because that's just how it works with Doom. I would buy the title...but since I've already got so many others to follow I think I'll just keep enjoying more of Babs' reviews.

#26 Edited by Oluf_Von_Host_Museum (84678 posts) - - Show Bio

I'm not sure if Doom's behind Morlun's arrival or not. I kinda get the feeling that someone else is calling the shots. Someone who has yet to reveal themselves. Most likely Norman Osborn. But I think Buckshot is dead on as to why Morlun is appearing in the next issue. The whole "feeds of totems" aspect.

Thanks everyone.

Yeah like I mentioned before, Morlun feeds off of animal energy (totems). I don't think I was specific when I said the word totem, however....
that was what I meant. I'm thinking that the last page where we see the tribe discussing how weak the BP is and how they should strike will be responsible for bringing Morlun into the equation.

#28 Posted by Mariella Heron (192 posts) - - Show Bio

T'Challa is having an affair (what else can explain the leaving the country without telling his wife/anyone?). =]

<---Isn't reading the book so comes up with weird explanations for what she heard Babs say.

#29 Posted by No_Name_ (17403 posts) - - Show Bio

LMFAO

T'challa has concubines! And Storm knows about them.... >.>

No but seriously, I think that its strange. It would have most likely been deactivated before he even left the country! Then again we do have that scene of Doom stepping off the ship after he turned off the autopilot and the guns right before he blasts T'Challa...

Why is this book even running anymore? Why do they continue to give Hudlin rope to hang himself? This will fail, just like the one before it.

You clearly haven't read the title. Perhaps if you had, you wouldn't be so quick to be negative.

Why are you all even supporting this? This guy is a bigot.

I'm supporting the comic because so far it has been a great story. And I don't know what you mean by a bigot...BP or Hudlin?

You all should stop supporting him. It only encourages it. He should not have a chance to even try and redeem himself.
