    It's not just teenagers. They didn't marry Sam and Dianne or Ross and Rachel mid-way through the first season of their shows either. They weren't even really dating by the end of the first season of those shows.

    Yeah, you can rush characters to the alter with no build up, but often you get a more epic pay off when you take the time to build something up. Often marriage is the pay off, not the starting point.

    And it's not even just marriage ... that can apply to anything in fiction. Again, sometimes it's just as much about the journey as it is the destination.

    Yeah, he didn't want the Panther to marry Storm. He wanted him to marry whomever happened to be the most powerful black heroine. He did not care about any characters not named Black Panther.

    Not true. We asked him about it a few months ago. He wanted Storm, but if she wasn't available he would have moved on to someone else.

    Besides, Monica is more powerful than Storm.

    "ducking". lol

    Exactly. So we can't fault T'Challa for the proposal either.

    The characters had a brief history that happened long before Hudlin arrived on the scene.

    One of the biggest things working against the marriage was the backlash of some Storm fans who didn't want her to leave the X-verse.

    The X-Offices failing to acknowledge the marriage didn't help either.

    Except Hudlin has said if Storm wasn't available he would of created a Wakandan LI for Tchalla, but given their history he wanted Storm so..

    All that tells me that Hudlin's prime concern was getting T'challa hitched, and whom he was getting hitched to was secondary.

    actually it says that he wanted Tchalla married to Storm, but if that wasn't an option, like any other writer would do, they would go a different route if he had to

    you know, look, if you’re a king, one of the most important parts of your job is to have a queen and have heirs. I mean, that’s kind of the number one part of the job, I would think. Like, continuation of the blood line. So when they asked me if I wanted to continue doing the series, and I said, “Yes,” and they asked what I would do, I said, “The Black Panther has to get married. You know, he’s a king, he can’t put that off and go around putting his life in danger.” So we talked about it, and the thing I’m most grateful for was when Marvel said, “Yeah, you can have Storm. He can marry Storm.”

    So it sounds more like Hudlin wanted to have Panther get married first.

    Also, the "You can have Storm" bit gives more credence to the argument that Storm was taken from the x-books so Hudlin could use her.

    If marrying Storm was what he wanted then he would have not have a marriage unless/until Storm became available.
    But no, he wanted to marry the Panther. To Storm if possible, but somebody else'd do in a pinch.
