Black Panther, real name T'Challa, is the King of Wakanda and the leader of the New Avengers.

Biography[]

T'Challa is the monarch of the secluded but technologically advanced African nation of Wakanda and the current Black Panther, a sacred title that must be both inherited and earned by the current Wakandan ruler. Granted superhuman powers by ceremonially consuming a mystical heart-shaped herb, the Black Panther is responsible for defending his people and the world from any threats.

Black Panther and Captain America

As T'Challa spoke before the United Nations, Captain America protected the assembly from Crossbones, who had been hired to take out T'Challa. After helping Cap take out Crossbones, T'Challa made off with Cap's shield, claiming that it was stolen property. Cap brought in the Avengers for help, and they traveled to Wakanda in order to reclaim it. During the confrontation, Black Panther claimed that Howard Stark stole Vibranium in order to make Cap's shield. To make matters worse, a reassembled Klaw appeared and made off with Cap's shield upon using a sound attack on the group. Both sides worked to find Klaw Cap told Black Panther that T'Chaka gave the Vibranium to Howard to make into Cap's shield. Tracking him to a hideout in the Himalayas, the Avengers and Black Panther engaged Klaw in an armor made out of Vibranium. With a special tactic, the Avengers and Black Panther were able to knock Klaw out of the armor, as Black Panther planned to make Klaw answer for his crimes. With Klaw's Vibranium armor in Wakandan custody, Black Panther changes his opinion of the Avengers and is offered reserve membership in the group.

The Mighty Avengers[]

Later, the Avengers disassembled and cut their ties to the United States government after learning that the government intended to register Inhumans. The team's government liaison, Truman Marsh (secretly Ultron), recruited a new group of heroes to form the government-sanctioned Mighty Avengers in their place, including T'Challa, Captain Marvel, the VisionAnt-ManRed HulkSongbird, and the young Ms. Marvel. The Panther recognized that a world without the Avengers was a problem but was unsure if such a plan was the best solution. Before it could be discussed any further, Marsh sent them to stop Baron Strucker. They did so, but not without help from the Black Widow and Iron Man. T'Challa criticized the original team, accusing them of wasting their talents and abandoning their responsibilities to maintain peace and order. Later, Marsh sent them to intercept three runaway Inhumans. They were met by the Avengers, who had come to warn the runaways of the raid. Neither side would give in, and a brawl broke out between the two Avengers factions. Black Panther went toe-to-toe with Iron Man. The battle eventually ended in favor of the Mighty Avengers. While Black Widow managed to escape, the rest of the renegade Avengers were taken into custody.

Soon after, it became apparent that the Inhuman registry had never been intended to protect people; in fact, any registered Inhuman became the target of mind control and was compelled to attack innocent humans. When Marsh attempted to force Ms. Marvel to register, the older heroes on the Mighty Avengers were shocked and decided this was the last straw. While the girl went into hiding, Black Panther and the team quit working for Marsh and sought out the other Avengers team, now also joined by Medusa and Black Bolt. Unfortunately, by the time Black Panther, Captain Marvel, Vision, and Red Hulk found the girl, it was too late, and Ms. Marvel had already succumbed to mind control. She proved to be a capable fighter, but Ms. Marvel was eventually freed when Vision removed the registration device. All the Avengers returned to Avengers Tower, only to find Marsh there, waiting. T'Challa was shocked to watch Truman Marsh morph into Ultron, who had been manipulating everyone all along, and declared he was finally ready to take over the world with his army of sentries and mind-controlled Inhumans.[1].

The Mighty Avengers and the Avengers worked together against Ultron and his army, but the sentries regenerated as fast as they were getting destroyed. Iron Man developed a plan and took Falcon, Ant-ManHawkeye, Captain Marvel, the Hulk, and Black Panther to his father's lab. The Panther worked with Captain Marvel and the Hulk to protect the lab from the Inhumans Karnak, Gorgon, and Inferno, while Ant-Man, Falcon, and Iron Man successfully broke Ultron's control over the Inhumans. However, while Ultron had the heroes distracted, he stole a new body for himself--the same armor that had been used by Klaw from Wakanda's armory. In doing so, the villain also gained power over the Vibranium and bested the top agents of the Dora Milaje and nearly T'Challa himself before fleeing to the final phase of the plan; by using the Vibranium body as a catalyst, Ultron would gather enough radiation to superheat the planet and end all life on earth. All the Avengers pursued, and the villain was seemingly defeated. Unfortunately, Ultron managed to transfer himself into a new body at the last second: Iron Man's. The Avengers were horrified to realize that Ultron had successfully hacked Iron Man's very mind. However, Doctor Strange arrived and cast a spell to keep Tony Stark alive and stop Ultron, but it kept Stark trapped in limbo halfway between the Dark Dimension and the natural world. The Avengers vowed to honor their friend's sacrifice and find a way to bring him back. In the meantime, T'Challa formally accepted to join the Avengers and put the Vibranium body back under top security, hopefully for good.[2].

Secret Wars[]

After the Avengers go missing, Black Panther forms the New Avengers to take their place and find out where they have disappeared.[3] In the 'Most Dangerous Hunt', he is taken to an Asgardian-like forest where he finds Hulk, and both encounter Skurge The Executioner. Skurge's axe has a magical crystal given to him by Amora The Enchantress, during the fight, the Crystal absorbs Hulk's rage and Skurge strikes T'Challa with the axe, bestowing the Hulk's rage and turning him into a wild and crazy Catman. Eventually, with a strike at their chains, the spell is broken free, and Hulk defeats Skurge.

To be added

Appearance[]

Personality[]

On the outside, T'Challa is noble, serious, and has a slightly sour and no-nonsense attitude since he is the King of Wakanda, he has many responsibilities such as Wakanda's safety and his duties towards the Avengers. When he crowned the new Black Panther, he made Wakanda have zero contact with the outside world, fearing that evil forces from outside might bring destruction and chaos to Wakanda as proven when his father, T'Chaka, nearly died from a foiled invasion organized by Hydra.

Black Panther also doesn't trust anyone easily, as proven when he fought Captain America just for his Shield, to his belief that it is a weapon of protection needed since it is made from Vibranium. He even said to Cap 'You are in Wakanda. You do not give the orders here!" indicating that he still doesn't think he should work with outsiders. But after Iron Man, Captain America, Thor, and Hawkeye helped him and fellow Dora Milaje member, Aneka defeat Klaw and retrieve Steve's shield, T'Challa began to grow a companionship with the Avengers, even becoming one.
