“The Feminists of Wakanda”

At The Atlantic, Ta-Nehisi Coates writes about his current run on Black Panther, the prominence of female characters, feminism and the role of criticism. “The feminist critique is in the air now. If my rendition of Black Panther wasn’t created by that critique, it breathed the same air. I can’t really kill off or depower women characters without grappling with Gail Simone. I can’t really think about how women characters are drawn anymore without thinking about the women in Bitch Planet, and how they seem drawn beyond the male gaze.”
