Why is the image of a Black couple the greatest threat to the Marvel Universe?
Why are all the prominent Black hero’s at Marvel (Storm, Falcon, American Patriot. Blade, Miles Morales the Ultimate Spiderman ) in a relationship with person of another race? Even the gay couples.
Yet the marriage of Storm and Panther was a mistake.
What is it about Black sexuality that makes it easier to feature all white girls in a comic that features a Black teenage Spiderman as if no Black girls exist in New York?

It’s nothing like that, man. It was a mistake just because Storm and Black Panther had no relationship prior the editorial decision of make them marry, basically out of the blue.
Had them working together - if Black Panther was a regular on X-Men stories, or the opposite, where the X-Men (an not ONLY the bride-to-be) participated on BP stories - everything would be fine.
Just think how long took to Storm and Forge get to a relationship, in terms of running comics (not comics time, where you can make a year pass inbetween panels). Think how long took for Mary Jane and Peter Parker to marry, or Jean Grey and Scott Summers. Unless Storm and BP story was about rushed marriages that fail in long term, this coupling was a very poor construction from the very start.
