Black Panther and the Agents of Wakanda #5 (Comic): Editor’s Choice

REVIEW

This was a fun issue that took a lighter tone due to Zub’s inclusion of Deadpool. At the same time, Zub manages to put a question out that Marvel readers are asking about T’Challa seeming to be everywhere but leading his country. Having Okoye breach the subject is the perfect way to position her as a leader as well as address the problem itself in a manner that would make Black Panther listen. The writing nails the character of Deadpool and the tension between the two characters is both measurable and fun to witness. We really enjoyed the twist at the end of this issue as well and what it could mean going forward.
