The universe of ‘Black Panther’ is growing and T’Challa’s sister Shuri is about to shine on her own. Marvel comics is in the works of releasing a comic book series about Shuri and all her genius. Shuri stole the show in Ran Coogler’s Black Panther movie.
As revealed at Bustle, “The series will focus on Shuri’s journey in the face of a tragic event; Black Panther is lost in a mission in space, leaving Wakandans asking questions about who should lead in his absence. As his little sister and the next in line for the throne, Shuri is pulled from her happy place (her lab full of impossibly genius, high-tech gadgets) and into a much heftier role.”
As we all seen in Black Panther Shuri is happy while in her lab surrounded by her gadgets. However, a nation without a leader in a vulnerable one – and according to Marvel synopsis, Shuri may have to choose between Wakanda’s welfare and her own.
Fans of Shuri will have a chance to spend more quality time with the strong-willed character in the comics. The series will be available in October 2018.
