    Shuri, though a character for 13 years in comics, was the breakout character of Black Panther, as portrayed by Letitia Wright. Co-created by Reginald Hudlin and John Romita Jr, Shuri is both a genius and a highly trained warrior and has, on more than one occasion, stood in for/replaced her brother as Black Panther.

    A Nigerian born author of prose (including Who Fears Death, which is being adapted as an HBO series), Okorafor is no stranger to writing Wakanadan tales, having penned “Black Panther: Long Live The King,” as well as the “Amazing Spider-Man: Wakanda Forever” one-shot. She is joined by Romero, most recently of “Captain America” and “Hawkeye.” The promotional image distributed by Bustle shows Shuri alongside some of the biggest heroes in Marvel’s stable: Captain America, Spider-Man, Thor, Iron Man, the Hulk, and Ant-Man. According to the Bustle piece, the series will deal, in part, with questions about Wakanda’s leadership while T’Challa is on a mission in space, as currently seen in “Black Panther.”
