Marvel Comics will officially launch a brand new comic book which focuses on the Princess of Wakanda, Shuri.
The upcoming series will see the amazing, technical, genius character written by award-winning writer, Nnedi Okorafor. Okorafor experience and skill is tremendous she co-wrote the digital series Black Panther: Long Live the King, alongside screenwriter and comic book writer Aaron Covington.
Bustle via the original source stated that, Okorafor said, “[Shuri is] an African young woman of genius level intelligence who is obsessed with technology and has traveled spiritually so far into the past that she’s seen Wakanda before it was Wakanda. The Ancestors call her Ancient Future. And she’s super ambitious. What do I love about her? Alllll that and more. She’s a character in the Marvel Universe who really sings to me.”
The official synopsis for the series from Marvel is: “Shuri is happiest in a lab, surrounded by gadgets of her own creation. She’d rather be testing gauntlets than throwing them. But a nation without a leader is a vulnerable one — and Shuri may have to choose between Wakanda’s welfare and her own.”
Will you be picking up Shuri when it hits stores? Be sure to let us know in the comment section below. This Shuri comic will be relased this October.
In the era of modern American superheroes, Marvel are branching out and diversifying their comic book lineage
Chinese internet conglomerate NetEase has debuted the first two Marvel superhero comics aimed at the Chinese market. According to a report from Technode, the two comics, Warriors of Three Sovereigns by artist Gunji and Cyclone by artist Keng, were developed under the supervision of Marvel.
“The editor of Marvel Comics participated in the creation of the two heroes, so it’s fair to say they are Marvel’s first two official Chinese superheroes,” said a NetEase spokesperson, presumably referring to Marvel Editor-in-Chief C.B. Cebulski, though they may know him by his Chinese name, 吉田明. “These characters will have various connections with the Marvel Universe, including the infrastructure of cities they live in, like Stark Industries advertisements.”
The comics, geared toward modern Chinese culture, star young protagonists. In Warriors of Three Sovereigns, a college student faces off against an ancient tyrant, while in Cyclone stars a female architect with wind-based powers.
So British actress Letitia Wright, posted on Twitter, agreeing to work with director Ryan Coogler to potentially become the first female Black Panther for a Black Panther sequel, in the comics Shuri has her own Black Panther suit.
This blog is my outlet for my interests, I value and one of my main passions is American comic books. To me fictional stories are a deep message that are an expression of the writers, illustrator’s and everyone involved in the whole process of creating a comic book. Comic book writers and illustrators such as Stan Lee and Jack Kirby who work for Marvel Comics have created amazing characters and stories such as Spider-Man, Iron-Man, Thor, Daredevil, Doctor Strange, Hulk and many more have led a legacy in all forms of entertainment and now their iconic characters that were once on paper are now in all types of media such as cartoons, television shows, anime and of course movies. The Marvel Cinematic Universe is amazing and this is just the start. (Iron-Man)
Also on the DC Comics side amazing Jim Lee a Korean-American comic book artist, writer, editor and publisher who has collaborated with a number of amazing people in the comic book industry to write and draw about the iconic superheroes and super villains such as: Batman, Robin, Bat Girl, Bat Wing, Superman, Supergirl, The Joker, Sinestro and Nightwing. (Nightwing is my favourite hero of all time)

Black Panther (2018) has become one of the highest grossing films, the movie has made approximately $704,000,422 Shuri created this version of the Panther Habit along with the one later used by her brother. While T’Challa opted not to use this suit, deeming its gold color and design as being too conspicuous for his taste, Erik Killmonger would come to claim it after his duel with T’Challa, for his reign as the new Black Panther, believing T’Challa to have perished in their fight. Upon his second fight with T’Challa, the two combatants would utilize their respective suits.
The suit is used by the main antagonising character Erik Killmonger, he obtained his suit from Shuri the Princess of Wakanda who initially created the suit for T’Challa but he didn’t want to use it. Erik Killmonger obtained this Golden Jaguar Habit which was based on the comic book’s character’s connection to leopards in the comics. The suit is known as The Golden Jaguar and has similar powers to Black Panther’s Vibranium suit such as Wakandan technology, suit manifestation, suit regeneration, energy absorption and kinetic energy plus.
