Will Wakanda Be Overthrown Once Or Twice? (Captain America Spoilers)

Captain America: Symbol Of Truth is a beautiful comic thanks to R. B. Silva and in his opening issue, Sam Wilson, the new Cap, takes a tour of Harlem, courtesy of writer Tochi Onyebuchi who has written about Harlem plenty in his novels. But there's one scene that really stands out.

Auto Draft
Symbol Of Truth #1

Wakanda's place in the Marvel Universe is often a tricky one. Isolationist, a monarchy rather than a democracy, it doesn't provide the best example of how things should be done, and makes for a problematic fantasy. But why not? That's how tricky questions get asked. And here Wakanda is preaching results as a foreign power to a community that are less well-served in all these matters. It'd like the London Olympics opening ceremony focusing on the NHS. But might Wakanda's own flaws be revealed here? We knew that White Wolf would be returning, from Captain America #0…
