Anyone trying out this Killmonger origin comic? Thoughts?
- Spoiler: show
Obviously they are going to make it somewhat resemble the movie, but as of yet unlike the Captain Marvel origin I don't think there has been any significant retconning here (though I am far from an expert on Black Panther comics history). The movie does actually help this comic though in that you can see this character as interpreted by Michael Jordan's excellent portrayal. The Moby Dick scene was great and you can really get a strong sense of this guy's anger, recklessness, and obsession. Linking him further into the MU through the Kingpin is a nice idea but Hill has done it loosely through these other characters that quite frankly can end up as expendable. I am looking forward to see Killmonger's journey from his mission of vengeance against Klaw turning into his mission to triumphantly return home. Ferreyra's art is not my favorite but it isn't bad either.
