    So Marvel is celebrating Black History Month by canceling the Black Panther's monthly and possibly assassinating him? I must be misreading this.

    "Over the course of 40 issues [over three years], we … really defined the character in a way that hadn't been done before. … Having done that, you go: "How do we up the stakes?"By getting rid of the character and replacing him with someone new. Good plan. Also, let's get some mainstream exposure for a character, and as soon as it happens, change the comic so it's not remotely similar to the character people just saw on TV. Egad, Brain, brilliant!This is, alas, change for change's sake. There's two possibilities who could be under tha mask; Storm, or T'Challa's sister (right?) that's been in the book recently. Good character and might be interesting, but it just screams of publicity event.I've been enjoying the book as it was, shame they feel the need to dick with it.

      Bummer. I'm getting very bored of this "established male character with new female twist" mumbo jumbo. Lady Bullseye, Lady Kraven, Miss Sinister, Loki… and now Black Pantheress. As Vinnie says, it's weird timing considering the upcoming TV show. Also a letdown because "See Wakanda and Die!" was so awesome, it really reinvigorated my enjoyment of the character. It's bad enough that Aaron can't continue on the book, but now they're getting rid of T'Challa? Weaksauce.

    My guess is that they are not getting rid of Black Panther. Instead, they are building a Black Panther Corps. A super-team of Wakandan Royalty! Just a guess.

    Question if in the latest marvel movie Black panther was givern a succecer Azari son of him and Storm and he has some awsome powers and already has a connectionto T'Challa, then why the sex change and why the randomness of her very presence? Azari would be a kick ass hero and sence his backstory has already been established, it just seems like a better story plus it would give marvel a chance to try something totaly different. You put together natures electric fury and the african panther prince and you have one of the most Influential and Powerful heros in marvel history.

    I love T'Challa but I will hold off any judgment until I see how this all flushes out. For me, if T'Challa is killed off then I would like to see Storm under that mask. It would love to see her take on the BP identity as Queen and to honor her husband. Storm is my favorite character and I have been waiting for an important storyline to come her way, plus I love seeing Storm kick ass. I like Russ Rogers thought of a Black Panther royal army. That would be cool too! Well I hope T'Challa doesn’t die cause I want to see who their kids will be in the Marvel U.

    I don't think it's going to be Storm, which is sad. The biggest role she's had in a long time was getting married. Big deal. I know it was a political thing for her and that's why it made it such a big thing – that and now she really is a queen, but I just don't see them giving it over to her. Besides, isn't the new BP actually a white woman? Which I'm so confused over because I've now seen two images of the new female BP – one with obvious white hair & another with her mask off and she's obviously white with dark brown hair. Besides, it's freaking April now, why haven't they just said who she is yet?! I can't find the answer anywhere.
