Black Panther #22

The Black Panther and his wife, the mutant Storm, come to the United States to try to mediate between the two factions involved in a super hero civil war. But as soon as they get off their jet, trouble starts. Unwillingly, they have to fight Iron Man and the Sentinel mechas who want to stop Storm, an American citizen, from moving around freely where she wishes. Will this misunderstanding turn into a big ugly fight?

Well, the answer to this is yes. It turned ugly but was very entertaining! Much of the story focuses on Jim Rhodes, Iron Man’s right-hand man, who has feelings of guilt over having to arrest the Black Panther. He seems to consider him as an example to follow and is not very sure about his feelings on the Civil War. Iron Man continues to act like a jerk, which I enjoy very much. It’s so rare to see a super hero, with noble intentions but skewered means and the will to carry out his vision. Iron Man is closer to a super hero would look alike in real life than most I have read about.

Rounding up the conflict is Garcia’s whose work is fine and concentrates on telling the story as effectively as possible. His inker, Parsons, is as competent. Storm’s face looks a bit bony in a few frames, but It’s still good work.

Rating: 8 /10
