Black Panther apart of the Marvel Now New Avengers Team

#1 Posted by WildStyle (331 posts) - - Show Bio

Just giving you all a heads up, Marvel released the variant cover of New Avengers #1 yesterday. Since it wasn't accompanied with a proper reveal or info, it was probably done accidentally.

Since this is an Illuminati inspired team, I expect there to be a couple more characters not shown on the image above. Xavier and Namor's roster spots have to be filled obviously.

Awesome. I would have liked a solo, but if Hickman is behind the writing duties, it's all good.

Dammit. Wanted to avoid multiple Avengers titles but BP plus Hickman is a damn good reason for me to get this. I'm tempted.

best team ever but they need more members.

Thank goodness when I saw the line up covers I was p!ssed Black Panther wasn't there. Hickman writes an Epic Tchalla.

I'm still holding out for Storm and She Hulk, but I doubt either will be on his team oh well.

I wish Storm was also on this team.

I'm aboard this. Interested in how they round out the team I'm guessing Magneto and/or Storm, Susan Richards, Dr Strange and Agent Brand. Maybe Valkyrie and Moon Dragon.

Storm is already confirmed on uncanny X-force with Pyslocke.. I am very happy with this team so far... Hickman + Black Panther = outcold...

#13 Posted by moneyspider1 (113 posts) - - Show Bio

Well, here's hoping she can do double-duty on an X-Men team and an Avengers teams. Other characters can be on multiple teams AND have a solo title, so there should be no problem with Storm doing it. Plus, Storm was already on the Avengers team (written by Bendis) while she was still in the X-books.

I wish Storm was aboard but from what I hear from folks who pay closer attention to these things it doesn't seem likely to happen. But I'm still very much excited about it.

#15 Posted by moneyspider1 (113 posts) - - Show Bio

It might happen eventually...Marvel can't seriously expect us to be okay with her only Avengers appearances in the 616 to have been just her drooling on the floor. I'm sick of the double-standard that Marvel has regarding certain characters...Wolverine can be on every team in existence AND manage to lead his own separate life in his solo book, but Storm has to be locked away in the X-corner of the Marvel Universe. It's ridiculous and quite frankly quite insulting...not only to the Storm character but also to her fans. Marvel has to do better.

"Black Panther is the lynchpin character of New Avengers. The central character. He's very important to the Avengers franchise as a whole." - Tom Brevoort
"Black Panther is certainly the moral center of New Avengers." - Jonathan Hickman

"Avengers is the day book and New Avengers is night. Avengers is how we want the world to be, New Avengers is how it is. One book is about life, one is about death. The logos reflect all this." - Jonathan Hickman

"Do Black Panther and Namor get along? No. Do Namor and Beast get along? No. Do Iron Man and various characters have problems as things get revealed? Absolutely." - Jonathan Hickman

"I don't think people will be surprised to learn that even as these guys go about their job, some will grow to hate one another. This is not a cheery happy story. This is the 'Death Avengers.'" - Jonathan Hickman

Jonathan says he has been dropping New Avengers hints in Fantastic Four and FF with Black Panther, Black Bolt and Reed Richards stuff.

Captain America, Iron Man, Doctor Strange, Black Bolt, Namor, Black Panther, Mr. Fantastic and Beast so far, with more possibly.

It's not a science team, it's the new Illuminati.

Storm with Tchalla and Namor is to much drama in my opinion, Sue Is a F__k yes, Hope is a no. I personally want Agent Brand on this team.

I agree that is too much with those three. I'd rather have had Magneto than Namor.

Susan Richards, maybe I don't know...it's not a regular team it's the Illuminati. The omega sign is for the last, the end, death, etc...the last hope or defense? So I'm not sure Storm would fit, as she isn't even a leader with the X-men anymore. Same with Hope, she is a maybe but I don't know.

The team is filled with leaders (T'challa, Cap, Namor, Black Bolt) and super genius characters (T'challa, Beast, Stark, Reed, Strange) and the expert of magic Dr. Strange. I just not sure what Susan, Storm or Hope would bring to the table other then being female.

Now Quake (Daisy Johnson) the director of SHIELD and Agent Brand the Director of SWORD are another topic. They are both leaders of two powerful organizations that would fit the premise.

Plus he said that she would not be a part of the Avengers team (Storm), but he didn't say New Avengers and he is actually a fan of her and the marriage. But I don't think we will see her there. If she was still Queen and a leader of the X-men Storm would have been PERFECT.

Magneto maybe, but I love the tension that is going to rise between Namor and BP. I can just imagine Namor bringing up him and Storm's thing in Age if X lol

Come on it would be funny XD and Namor is enough of an ass to do it.

Namor- I destroyed your country and banged your wife when we had amnesia.

Black Panther- *Stabs Namor in the heart and walks away*

Agreed 100 % bro. This is pretty much the highest profile thing he has been a part of *ever*. I read some of the comments and pessimism on the other forums...very understandable, but I think it's off mark with this situation. Being the mega focus of NEW Avengers and the driving point of the story is pretty big and a huge step in the right direction in my opinion.

I understand the pessimism too, but I don't think it's pessimism anymore, especially on the CBR thread. It's gone way beyond that.

Apparently, besides leading the NEW AVENGERS, and T'challa's upgrade. The team will be based out of Wakanda also. Great news imho. Hickman said he will still build gadgets and the team will have several different suits they will wear.

This is a very powerful team.

So is the main Avengers team, with the addition of Hyperion, Captain Universe and a Imperial Guardsman.

No Storm, some folks at Marvel got what they wanted( and fans ) so let it go, didn't give a damn about them being married before so they don't need to act like they care now

This team doesn't make sense to me at all either BP or Namor has to go. And if BP is leading this team why wouldn't he just get someone else. Namor isn't a big science mind nor is he as strong as Thor or the Hulk.

And Namor's just leveled Wakanda killing hundreds. It would be like George Bush working with Bin Laden, Israel and Palestine getting along, the 1940's Nazi's teaming up with a group of Jewish people. That's how far apart these guys should be right now. Or at least that is how BP should see it Namor probably doesn't care. I get BP is trying to save the world or stop the dimensions form merging, but that still doesn't explain why he is working with Namor. Just feels forced
