New Marvel Cosmic Villain The Colonialist Debuts in Black Panther #9

A new storyline called Range Wars is kicking off in Black Panther #9, as revealed in Marvel Comics' full August solicitations that just dropped a few minutes ago. Written by John Ridley with art by Germán Peralta and a cover by Alex Ross, Black Panther #9 will introduce a brand new threat to Marvel's growing cosmic universe: The Colonialist. Described as a "dangerous new galactic interloper," The Colonialist has plans to — you guessed it — colonize The Earth. You would think this would be a job for The Avengers and every other superteam on the planet, but apparently Captain American is just going to leave it all to T'Challa because he feels he isn't putting in 100% lately. Well, we're sure he's up to the job of taking care of this pink elephant riding, Teddy Roosevelt looking sunuvabitch.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy claims that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero would come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events. Unfortunately, nobody can tell when the comics industry has reached its "darkest days" because it somehow keeps finding new lows to sink to. No matter! Jude Terror stands vigilant, bringing the snarkiest of comic book and pro wrestling clickbait to the undeserving readers of Bleeding Cool.
