BLACK PANTHER #11 – A Nation Under Our Feet Pt.11

BLACK PANTHER #11 – A Nation Under Our Feet Pt.11

Published February 22, 2017 by Marvel Comics. Written by Ta-Nehisi Coates and illustrated by various artists.

The climatic end to “A Nation Under Our Feet” begins at Necropolis where T’Challa summons Wakandain spirits of the past to defend the throne.

Shuri in her new form leads the attack as she is now a Griot and Black Panther along with Manifold arrive to join the melee. However, the Hatu Zeraze are quickly defeated by the People under Zenzi’s control.

Just as T’Challa and the Hatu seem close to defeat one last gambit is played. Changamire begins to broadcast a speech meant to inspire peace and surrender of the People and break the hold Zenzi has upon their hearts and minds.

For some it wakes them up but there are still some among the People that remain under Zenzi’s control. The Hatu are able to regain the upper hand with the distraction. Zenzi plays one last attempt and the remaining People under her control are transformed and mutated to continue their assault on T’Challa and Hatu.

Tetu is finally defeated by T’Challa and Wakanda’s past heroes and captured while Zenzi has evaded his fate. Shuri begins a new chapter with the Dora Milaje.

So the end of this first epic tale has come and with it a new beginning. But where will Black Panther fit in with a Dora Milaje led by Shuri? Will his sister take the throne back or will he cede his throne to her? The fall-out from this will remain to be seen.
