As the FF journey to Wakanda there is reference to Raiders of the Lost Ark
So much for the Indiana Jones uniform.
The energy source is the Tower of M'Kumbe and the FF are given permission and help by by T'challa to investigate.
Only one thing is off in the panel above. T'Challa would never be a party to supporting the image of white explorers with black bearers. No Way. The Black Panther would most likely tell explorers in Wakanda to carry their own fucking baggage and dictate an extremely fair price for the service backed by a bearer bill of rights.
One other thing is off: this isn't T'Challa
Up close the Tower doesn't seem natural at all.
A previous Russian party did not fare well.
The FF allow themselves and their companions to be captured. Sue remaining conveniently invisible.
The inside of the Tower.
Once the FF step off the elevator things go a bit insane.
This "emperor" has changed the Thing back to Ben Grimm and neutralized Sue's invisiblity.
The FF and their companions powerfless before him, the armored one gives his orders.
In the dungeons, the Black Panther reveals himself.
A naked Sue finds herself in different circumstances.
They stripped Frankie too but everytime she's stripped this fancy bathing suit appears.
And a fat lot of good that fire's going to do.
Meanwhile Mr. Bastard reveals that he used to be a simple Roman soldier who chanced upon alien technology.
Mr. Fucker forces Ben and Johnny to fight in gladiatorial combat. In desperation Sue snatches his helmet and . . .
Just like Sauron, when Mr. Idiot goes, so does everything he created - including Sue's clothes.
The FF and the Panther escape the crumbling city (the bearers were robots).
What a strange adventure. Reed does the final explaining.
