Summary: “Cousin,” Prince T’Challa says, the sincerity radiating off him like sunlight, as Erik stares in disbelief. “Welcome home. I’m glad that you have been found at last.” He’s practically disoriented, that’s the only excuse Erik has got for letting himself slip and say, still staring at T’Challa, “I go by Erik, actually.”
Recommendation: Nah! This was so great! They get to Erik before he becomes Killmonger, but that doesn’t mean he’s not still full of bitterness and anger it just means T’Challa, and others, have a chance to draw it out of him before it poisons his soul.
