Breakfast with supervillains

This is from Heroes for Hire v2 #7. It's written by Justin Gray, Jimmy Palmiotti, and Zeb Wells, and illustrated by Al Rio.

And in these scans, wearing a bathrobe over that.

Which is AWESOME.

that's a bit creepy isn't it. And just think of all the care that must go into keeping a dead skin looking supple and alive, especially one with all that fur.

I am going to take your word for it. Thanks for the link but that article is a bit tealdeer and I didn't find the word "skin" in a search. :\

Oh, man, this slays me. So he kills--or happens upon (yeah right)--a *sacred* white gorilla, I am assuming he guts it next, and then he saves the skin to wear at all times, even early in the morning while cooking egg hats and wearing fuzzy slippers.

I can't decide if this is why I *should* be reading Marvel, or why I do not, but it is sweetly perverse all the same.

Well yeah, of course, I mean I think it goes without saying that he would bathe in the gorilla's blood and, er, eat its flesh.

Man, PETA would be all over this guy.

(thank you for your research tho :p~~ )

It's a religious thing.

The Black Panther is the sacred animal of most of the people in Wakanda, who are all part of the "Panther Cult".

There's another, much smaller and very persecuted cult that worships the White Gorilla. It's basically equivalent to being a devil-worshipper.

He sought out one of the white gorillas his people find sacred, killed it, ate its flesh, wore its skin, and in so doing gained superpowers and became the religious leader of the cult.

Which seriously puts him at odds with the Black Panther, who's basically the Pope of the Panther Cult, along with being King of Wakanda.

(Hudlin, being a hack of the highest order, took one look at the character, deemed him "stupid" and never bothered to learn more)
