Just a thought I had, what if Crule had a secret or forgotten history with the Black Panthers?
In short Crule is old, older then Africa and the continent that formed it and I think it would be wild if he found the meteor of Vibranium before Bashenga. Like before Bashenga united the tribes Crule kinda ruled, just doing whatever he liked with everyone scared of him. That's how the Hyena Clan one day come to be. He found the Vibranium, claiming it as his own, had his clawed gauntlets made of it. After Bashenga took it and some of his people turned into Demon Spirits cause of it, he became the second Black Panther, united the tribes to stop the Demons and fight back against Crule. Unable to kill the ancient immortal they chained him, placed him on a makeshift boat and set him off to sea. Where he ended up among the Mayans for a number of centuries.
So when that External Gate is destroyed freeing him and the others, and after they make Apocalypse pay hard, I'd like to see him go after T'Challa and all that. Of course as the story unfolds T'Challa would learn of this secret or forgotten history Also I'd like if they'd return to his original style of talking, like he did in his first appearances.
