Dinner with Dr. Doom Is My Favorite Panel from This Week’s ComicsEvan Narcisse6/22/13 1:00pmFiled to: Panel DiscussionMarvel ComicsThought Bubble764EditPromoteShare to KinjaToggle Conversation toolsGo to permalinkNew Avengers #7: This series has been all about putting the best and brightest minds in the Marvel Universe down an incredibly slippery slope of good intentions. So far, the slide has been breakneck with a universe-threatening event—and just a little bit more moral erosion—happening just about every issue. Things quiet down a little bit here but the lack of fisticuffs makes the character tensions even more enjoyable. How good do good guys have to be to save the world? That’s debatable. But, they certainly don’t have to tell the world’s biggest tyrant what they’re up to. I’ve written before about how the Black Panther is one of my favorite superhero characters and this series has been shown off one of the reasons why. T’Challa and his unique place in the Marvel Universe serve as a window into a sort-of superpowered statecraft, which was a highlight of the Black Panther series written by Christopher Priest. In the same vein, the diplomacy that happens in New Avengers #7 juggles several world-ending situations, with the fate of each hinging on the personalities of the people having them.
