Let me just get this out of the way: Under optimum circumstances, Wolverine would be totally outclassed fighting the Black Panther. T'challa could beat Captain America and Iron Man at the same time if he saw them coming. And in this case, Wolverine's most important super-power is either gone, or at least waning. For those taking score, that's not optimum conditions. Wolverine is not nearly as formidable without the ability to shrug off otherwise fatal injuries. Unless Storm is backing Wolverine up, Logan would not know what hit him. That said, this is Wolverine's book, and right now, the Marvel U is treating T'challa like a punching bag, so I expect the writer to dumb him down big time.

But I hope Wolverine #8 sells well, just so the fine folks at the Mickey Marvel Mouse Club will know the Panther has fans. Wolverine #8, which I'm sure will feature at least one page of snarky ex banter between Storm and T'challa, arrives in stores August 14th.
