The wedding in the middle of the war


There are some places you just don't mess with. Since the dawn of time, that African nation has been sending would-be conquerors home in body bags. While the rest of Africa got carved up like a Christmas turkey by the rest of the world, Wakanda's cultural evolution has gone unchecked for centuries, unfettered by the yoke of colonization. The result: a high-tech, resource-rich, ecologically-sound paradise that makes the rest of the world seem primitive by comparison.

Ruling over all of this is the Black Panther.

The Black Panther is more than just the embodiment of a warrior cult that's served as Wakanda's religious, political and military head since it's inception. The Black Panther is the embodiment of the ideals of a people. Anyone who'd dare to make a move on Wakanda must go through him.

Now, the Panther is on the verge of fulfilling one of his duties as a king: taking a queen. He has announced his engagement to Storm of the X-Men -- a woman whom he shares much love and history. The happy couple prepares for their union, unaware that conflict abroad and dark intentions at home may overshadow their joyous occasion...
Let's not talk about the War for a second, ok? So who are the guests on the wedding of the century? I'm really not familiar about some of them but here they are anyway. I hope I get all their names right.

The Invited Superheroes(in order of appearance):
  • Luke Cage
  • Spider-Man
  • Susan Storm
  • Mr. Fantastic
  • Thing
  • Oh no, where's Johnny? (He's still in the hospital you dummy)
  • Shadowcat
  • Cyclops
  • White Queen
  • Wolverine
  • Colossus
  • Cannibal (Psychic Parasite cooking something evil)
  • Goliath
  • Falcon
  • Professor X (and he can walk!)
  • Iron Man
  • Captain America
  • Doctor Strange
  • Blade (?)
  • The Watcher
  • Man-Ape
  • Dr. Doom (Well not physically)
  • I don't know the other's names. If you know the other ones, please leave a comment so I could add them to the list.
Other Guests:
  • Toure
  • Ananda
  • Isaiah Bradley - the editor of Truth: Red, White & Black
  • President Bush
  • Fidel Castro
  • Nelson Mandela
  • Oprah

I don't know all of their names. I think you better buy your own issue whether you like it or not because this one is an essential Civil War tie-in.
