The current arc of Ta-Nehisi Coates, Daniel Acuña and Joe Sabino's space-bound Black Panther comic has thrust readers into the far future, where a wildly different group of Wakandans who have colonised the cosmos are in a, well... star war. A group of rebels are fighting the Wakandan space empire, and they have just recruited a mysterious new character who happens to be named T'Challa.


I've spent most of my professional career writing about comics (and video games), putting forth what I understand about the art form's mechanics and creators in essays, reviews, and interviews. I thought I got comics, at the very least the superhero genre aspect of the medium. They have always been part of my life.

This week, every movie studio is likely scrambling to figure out how to replicate Black Panther's success. As Marvel's main rival in the realms of comics and movies, all eyes are on Warner Bros, home of the live-action DC superhero movies, in particular. Here's a pro tip: The answer is not Cyborg.
