Previously in Black Panther And The Agents Of Wakanda: In a world that’s post-S.H.I.E.L.D, T’Challa has formed a team of his own to fill the agencies void. One of their first assignments has taken them to Oklahoma to a town that is being tormented by monsters that are not only a physical threat but a mental one as well. On top of that, it seems that one of these beasts’ victims is none other than The Sentry, who has finally merged with his evil alter-ego The Void.
CALLING IN THE BIG GUNS
Black Panther and The Agents of Wakanda #1 kicks off with Okoyo and The Wasp, neck deep in their own respective troubles. The former is being attacked by none other than The Black Panther, and the latter is having her vacation ruined by a Hank Pym/Ultron amalgamation. They each manage to suss out that they’re in hallucinations and fight their way out. They regroup with T’Challa and they prepare to attack The Sentry. Elsewhere Fat Cobra is dealing with his own hallucination which he banishes quickly using his chi. The Agents as a unit confront The Sentry. Fat Cobra has a plan but needs time. T’Challa calls for backup which arrives in the form of Thor. While Fat Cobra preps, the others attack The Sentry. Then, using an ancient Kung Fu technique, Fat Cobra hits The Sentry and the monsters inside him are banished. He then deals with them in a way that is very on point. The team then retires to their headquarters, where they receive a call from their away team who’s on the moon, claiming they all need to come because “The moon is hungry”.
CLUMSY DIALOG, DECENT WRAP-UP, GREAT CAMEO
The issue is riddled with awkward dialog. From beginning to end there are moments when characters describe things out loud, to themselves, which always comes off as awkward. I was also surprised to see this particular story arc come to a close after only two issues. In a time when most plots take a minimum of 5 issues to conclude, it was nice to see a concise, straightforward tale. The shining moment of this issue though, has to be the arrival of Thor. The whole sequence comes off like those moments in wrestling when mid-match, another wrestlers music kicks in and they come storming the ring to help someone out.
BOTTOM LINE: MIDDLE OF THE ROAD BASIC COMIC BOOK
There’s certainly some flaws here and there are certainly better examples of this out there, but if you’re in the market for a simple good guys vs. bad guys, punch them until you win, type of book, this should satisfy. I definitely wasn’t blown away by anything here, but I was entertained. 3 out of 5
