Revenge is a Dish Best Served Cold and British in Next Week’s Killmonger Finale

Next week’s final issue of Killmonger picks up one year after the events of the previous, with Knight having betrayed her teammates for S.H.I.E.L.D. and apparently earning a sweet London pad as a reward. But Killmonger has come looking for… though it took him enough time.

Well, revenge is a dish best server cold, after all. Like all the cold pheasant and porridge and whatever else Killmonger’s been eating to get super buff. What? He’s in England.

Now, Killmonger has turned the tables on Knight, and he wants her to steal data from S.H.I.E.L.D. about the Black Panther so he can go on to try to kill him and steal the throne of Wakanda. The tables have turned.

Through all of this, it’s hard not to root for Killmonger, ostensibly a villain, but like in the Black Panther film, he kind of has a point about all of this.

Hopefully, he’ll get what’s coming to him as the series wraps up next week. Killmonger #5 hits stores on Wednesday.

About Jude Terror

A prophecy says that in the comic book industry's darkest days, a hero will come to lead the people through a plague of overpriced floppies, incentive variant covers, #1 issue reboots, and super-mega-crossover events.

Scourge of Rich Johnston, maker of puns, and seeker of the Snyder Cut, Jude Terror, sadly, is not the hero comics needs right now... but he's the one the industry deserves.
