💥Marvel has given Shuri (sister of T’Challa) her own comic series…and I [Nnedi Okorafor] am writing it. Yup! 🤓!! Shuri is an African young woman of genius level intelligence who is obsessed with technology and has traveled spiritually so far into the past that she's seen Wakanda before it was Wakanda. The Ancestors call her “Ancient Future”. And she's super ambitious. What do I love about her? Alllll that and more. #wakandaforever 🙅🏾♀️ #nnediokorafor #marvel #shuri
