We return to enjoy the 2000 stage of Black Panther in comics thanks to the new volume edited by Panini Comics under the name of 100% Marvel HC. Black Panther 4: Behold Wakanda and Die
Must to be able to know all the possible scenarios for our characters favorites, since they move forward in time and have to be recycled so that readers continue to maintain interest in them. Every stage of comics has been going by some places or others for the charactersalthough its essence has always been just as present, regardless of the scriptwriter or the cartoonist who took the reins.
the nation of Wakanda has always stood out for being incredibly hermetic and evolved with respect to the rest of the Marvel universe. This makes it something tremendously mysterious and thanks to the series where Black Panther is the protagonist, we have been able to see the ins and outs of his reign. From the beginning of the character, going to the most classic moments with its initial stagethe key to his story was the unity of Wakanda and his role as king, which was very political.
Thanks to the arrival of the most explicit trailer of the next installment of Black Panther in the UCM we have been able to see the kingdom of Wakanda more united than ever. Unfortunately, Chadwick Boseman will not be reprising his role and this has been reflected in the Marvel universe in the cinema and are looking for a successor. Through the new comic published by Panini we can see some elements that could be key for this film and, although are not represented the sameit is possible that they take certain details.
Three stories about Wakanda as a nation and T’Challa as a leader
One thing that happens when you start reading this character is that it seems that you are going to have political and social issues everywhere. You have to keep in mind that this is one of the first references in terms of African superheroes, so there will always be a tinge of social criticism out there. This it looked great in the first adventuresslowly changing this and focusing on T’Challa’s second focus: his reign in Wakanda.
There may be to who likes more or who likes less, but this character is still a king who has a super suit. The differences between him and Batman is the color of his skin and his royal rank, but otherwise it can be said that shares a lot with the hero of Gotham, since he is a born strategist and has many tools that help him in his fight against crime. in this volume we will see the importance of the position he occupies and how, all going together, they are able to make Wakanda shine.
In the first of the stories we will get see the rivalry that exists between Wakanda and its neighboring country, reaching such a magnitude that issues such as the submission of a town or coercion by Killmonger are touched upon. Undoubtedly, a story that could serve as perfect preamble for the first installment in the UCMsince the other clashes were somewhat further back in time.
Maybe it is the best of the three stories, but in the intermission of this volume we can see T’Challa’s participation in the Secret Invasion event. Carried out by Jason Aaron, these few numbers show us the bloody battle that took place in Wakanda and how Black Panther and his wife, Storm, managed to stop the advance of the Skrulls and demonstrate, once again, all the technological and strategic power they have. have watch out Namor and his atlanteans for the second installment.
End the volume with a story that comes in handy for the premiere of the second movie, as it deals with the issue of succeeding T’Challa as the bearer of Black Panther in the comics. It begins with an accident that prevents our hero from continuing to wear the suit and Wakanda needs someone to lead their army. It would be the first time we see Shuri fight for her position and be Black Panther, although we will see that not everything is what it seems.
Spectacular drawing full of action and very consistent with the character
It can be verified, throughout the entire volume, that the drawing is changing, since they are three stories with quite different backgrounds. Although they are superheroic adventures for our king of Wakanda, all of them have somewhat different tints from each other, since the first tries to show us a man of action above all that goes to war when necessary, while in the second we are faced with a strategy and the use of silences and pauses or darker drawings they help.
let’s find an incredibly frantic drawing for the first and third stories, although both with their unique touch, while for the Secret Invasion story something tremendous will be observed. For my taste, it is one of the best that this volume has, since This is a story that will have you hooked.despite being few numbers, and that you will want to continue advancing and devouring.
The mere fact of doing everything with some dark touches and put us from the point of view of the Skrull It makes us see the brutality and fear that the inhabitants of Wakanda can instill. true that no complaints regarding the other drawings but it is a story that is in the middle, pausing everything on all levels and eclipsing the last story, which should be the most relevant because it is the one that can be seen on the new tape.
A very striking edition to get into the character
From the moment that Panini decided to collect the stage of the 2000s of the character we have received, with this, 4 deliveries. The truth is that it is a good way to read everything and if you like movies you will enjoy it a lot. There wouldn’t be much left for collect everything up to the most current partas Black Panther doesn’t have as many American volumes as other heroes.
Thanks to the initiative that began with the Marvel Collection and that it seems that it is now under the name of 100% Marvel HC We are opening the range more with all the heroes in these stages. From here we send a message to the publisher to continue doing so because the truth is that it is looking very good in Black Panther and we want to continue to see T’Challa leading Wakanda as a nation or whatever it takes.
