[Image: Four panels of a comic featuring Ororo (Storm), a Black woman, Zanda, another Black woman, and a white woman in the background speaking.
Panel one: Zanda (to Storm): Impesonating you? You flatter yourself. Storm: I just heard you say you’re marrying The Black Panther.
Panel two: Zanda: I am. You don’t honestly bleieve he wants to be with anyone but me, do you? Once I tell T’Challa he doesn’t need to settle, that I won’t reject him, he’ll be with his true love.
Panel Three: White woman (behind Storm): What is this — an episode of “Flavor of Love”. Storm (to Zanda): “If your country spent as much on education as you do on handbags, they could produce a psychiatrist who could treat your psychosis.
Panel Four: Zanda (walking away): Don’t hate me because I’m beautiful, street urchin.”]
Needless to say, Ororo’s not impressed by Zanda, and the feeling’s more than mutual.
Mind you, I have a very vague idea of the issue at hand (and have never read any Marvel Comics), but the shade is strong in these panels.
This is my sideeye of Marvel. It was already sketchy when they first decided “the Black characters go together” default (Where was Forge during all of this?), then the “Black Panther’s declared divorce BS” which was not ok, and now royalty is shit talking on some crude insults AND you’re going to lampshade it with “Flavor of Love” reference?
And the whole “Black women just hate each other” trope?
GUHGHGHGHGHGHG. You know Marvel, it’s great you DO include POC, then you pull shit like this.
Nice of the White friend to compare their disagreement to Flavor of Love
Yeah. I think in a more proper world, that panel would end with both Storm and Zanda slapping whoever that person is (it’s a redheaded skinny white woman in the Marvelverse, there’s like FIFTY BAJILLION of them, I can’t even tell them apart) and then walking off arm and arm.
Oh god, Marvel, this is why I quit you and will not un-quit you in this century, probably.
