More thought-provoking stuff. I really like how T’Challa is thinking and second-guessing himself here. He’s often been accused of being too perfect, but nothing could be further from the truth here. But he’s still a bad-ass, the way he took down those cops was hardcore, and very well-drawn by Francavilla. Hate-Monger and American Panther are strong villains, and I’m glad that some of the on-the-noseness of last issue was toned down a bit. The scene where Hate-Monger forces American Panther to lick his boots was messed up.

The on-the-nose stuff was purely intentional, though, and I felt it worked for the issue and what the creators were going for. Just the whole aspect and basis was ridiculous and makes you think just how absurd and stupid a lot of hate can actually be. So it was played for very on-the-nose and funny purposes.

One thing I dig with the writer, though, is him poking fun and issues with the base of the story regarding T'Challa. Storm previously was questioning and making fun of T'Challa wanting to challenge himself and now this issue T'Challa finally deciding to stop trying to do Daredevil's job and do it his way. A lot of critique fans were having are being addressed in a pretty logical way with the story purposes.

I'm really beginning to like American Panther as a villain. The single origin page was really strong and fully explained everything you need to know about why he has taken the actions he has. It should be interesting to see what happens with him when he gets out from under the influence of the Hate-Monger.
