To be honest with you I’m not really into comic book characters. I didn’t know who Black Panther was until earlier this year when a good friend hipped me to him. Apparently he’s one of the best out there and he’s got one of the baddest brides in the comic book world, Storm. Well I just found out yesterday that their 6 year marriage may be coming to an end. Why?….apparently folks had issues about their relationship. In any event, reading the below piece was a bit fascinating so I decided to post it on the site. I sho nuff didn’t know about their marriage…did yall?
Marvel’s Black Panther (aka T’Challa) and X-Men’s Storm (aka Ororo Munroe) have been married since 2006.

In a new issue of Avengers vs. X-Men, Black Panther dumps Storm in the coldest, most public way possible: during a battle she showed up (too late for his liking) to help him fight:
The writers may have decided on an “annulment” for the couple in response to fans’ disappointme
Black Panther and Storm’s marriage was not without its supporters.

But it would appear that there might be an off-page political reason for the sudden annulment.
