Not So Marvellous

One problem I have with "Black Panther" is that it is set in an undemocratic, tribal society where military prowess is valued above everything else. There is a huge dollop of the noble savage about it. It differs completely from the modern high-tech world of Iron Man or the gentile, mannered world of the X-Men's country house retreat. The stereotypes are all still there even if they are tarted up a bit with a young, black woman who can do science.
