" Hydra. Al-Qaeda. AIM. "

Dammit, Tony- the pattern for implicitly establishing legitimacy is " real, real, fictional ", not " fictional, real, fictional ".

(Though it is a neat way of grounding the story.)

That would explain the whole 'snatching the important fragile vial with metal gauntlets' thing.

Dell Rusk. Dell fucking Rusk. Because nobody good with anagrams and curious that this guy's fucking name is a) a computer brand and b) a baby's biscuit sat there and went "Hey, this guy we've never heard of before and has this suddenly incredible amount of political power? His name can be rearranged to 'Red Skull'."

Clearly, he was vetted by the same people who Trump uses.

It worked for Superman wearing glasses.

Yeah, but Clark works at his disguise. There's a bit later on in this story where the Red Skull is wearing full Nazi regalia in the SoD's office. And he also has a gas chamber installed. In his office. For killing people.

Who doesn't't have a secret room with a gas chamber besides everyone needs a hobby.

Honestly, I think this is just one of those "comics" things. It's just build into the nature of the universes that obvious anagrams just work.

Guess it again bears repeating how the Wakandans don't seem to be inclined to help their fellow man. Cures for cancer just lying around, probably invented the cure for polio in 1912 and invented penicillin in 1778 but hey, who needs things like that, right?

Now, I do realize that the Wakandans withholding certain things makes sense but cures for diseases?

Then theres that little thing where they don't bother to help out the rest of Africa throw out the colonial powers or even the Arab slave traders because it didn't involve them... and yet Wakanda is supposed to be more enlightened?

All they have to do is ask.

The key is recognizing that there is something to ask for, because Wakanda is so great and everyone should already know that by now. So if you're too dumb to ask for an impossible cure, well, that's on you.

I do enjoy collecting the tears of butthurt fans. Wakanda has better things to do than address your complaints.

Yup. Like have it's leader indulge in pointless dickwaving with the asshole from Atlantis while the universe is literally ending.

Oh let Atlantis burn, DC has that covered with Aquaman. Now Marvel just needs to kill off its Superman knockoffs.
