Month of Cool Avengers/X-Men Comic Book Moments – Black Panther Makes Good on a Promise

by  in Comic News Comment

All month long we will feature brand-new Cool Avengers and X-Men Comic Book Moments in celebration of their fiftieth anniversaries this month. Here is an archive of all the past cool comic moments that I’ve featured so far over the years.

Today we look at Black Panther making good on a promise to the Red Skull in Avengers Volume 3 #70 (by Geoff Johns, Olivier Coipel and Andy Lanning)…

Okay, to set the scene, the Red Skull has infiltrated the U.S. Government. Falcon of the Avengers and Henry Gyrich (the Avengers liaison) were investigating the Skull (before they realized that he was, in fact, the Skull and not just some mysterious bad guy infiltrating the government). They are captured and the Falcon is seriously wounded. The Skull unleashes his plan. He has launched a chemical weapon attack on Mount Rushmore and he plans to blame the attack on Wakanda and frame the Black Panther as a traitor. Captain America showed up to stop the Skull but the Skull has dosed Cap with the deadly chemical. So now you have Panther taking on the Skull while Iron Man tries to revive a dying Cap and Gyrich and Falcon lay nearby chained up (and in the Falcon’s case, terribly wounded)…



Awesome.

So they continue their fight while Iron Man deals with Cap…





They never do. Well done, Panther!
