At this point in time, the roster of Avengers is hardly Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. 50% of the team is Black Knight and Hawkeye.
Nice splash page, though.
Anyway, this is basically a Black Panther solo story, where he battles for the kingdom of Wakanda against Man-Ape.
Because every time we see Black Panther in Wakanda, someone is trying to steal his throne. He’s really not a good leader if he’s always in jeopardy from his own people.
Some nice sequences taking place in Wakanda.
Before the big battle…
In the end, Man-Ape dies from a bunch of stuff landing on him when The Avengers bust in to save T’Challa. So, The Avengers do cause a death here.
