Inspired by a Tik Tok user, I read Black Panther Shuri-Deadliest of the Species on Comixology.
I posted a short review of the 'Wakanda Forever film on Tik Tok. A viewer tagged user @kingandqueenlion in the comments section of that video. @kingandqueenlion responded to other fan reviews by going into Shuri's backstory and mentioning this book.
In this story, T'challa is mortally wounded while going against Doctor Doom. As a result, his soul goes into limbo and combats Death itself. However, unbeknownst to his wife, Ororo(X-Men's Storm), she refuses to give up and tries to bring him back to life by making a deal with a sorcerer who can't seem to be trusted.
All the while, a powerful ancient enemy Morlun (the central villain from Marvel Comics 2014 Spider-Verse storyline), is resurrected and invades Wakanda. Shuri has trained to become the Black Panther all her life but is conflicted between her older brother's current state, her mother's(Ramonda) expectations, and taking up the mantle of the new Black Panther.
Shuri is fantastic in this comic and portrayed differently than in the movies. In the MCU, she's an uber-intelligent scientist warrior. Here Shuri's an elite warrior princess.
Also, the men in this book are not emasculated as in Wakanda Forever(find more of my review here).
Reginald Hudlin wrote this story. A filmmaker who's made several cult hits I've watched over the years, like Eddie Murphy's 'Boomerang,' 'House Party,' and 'The Ladies Man.' In 2020, I watched and found fascinating 'The Black Godfather' documentary on Netflix, and after researching, Mr. Hudlin discovered that he directed that too!
Thrilling, fulfilling story not to be missed.
