The Avengers: Black Panther

Updated on May 11, 2012

The Black Panther has similarites to that of DC Comics' Batman, but in terms of the Marvel Universe he is the foreign Captain America. He is to his people what Captain America means to America. The two have a tremendous amount of respect for each other, and it made Black Panther a valued member of the Avengers roster. His identity is known to the public as he stands up for his Panther Clan and he goes by the name of T'Challa, while in the states he goes under the cover name of Luke Charles. His powers are similar to Captain America as he has heightened senses, and his physical attributes have been enhanced to superhuman levels by a heart-shaped herb (to which I'm sure stoners love to hear.) He is also a master at unarmed combat and a great leader in the battlefield. He is a skilled scientist, strategist, tactician. Due to being a member of the Panther Clan, he is also a skilled combatant while armed with weapons but due to his other abilities he much rather prefers to be unarmed. In battle he has a tendency to always think several steps ahead to be able to react quicker in the time of need and no one will doubt that he goes to extreme measures to protect the kingdom of Wakanda.

T'Challa was the heir to the throne of the African kingdom known as Wakanda while also being the ritual leader of its Panther Clan. His adopted elder brother, Hunter, hated him for coming supplanted him as the rightful heir when he was born. T'Challa's mother died giving birth to him and his father, T'Chaka was murdered by a man named Klaw who visited Wakanda solely searching for the rare Vibranium metal that was unique to Wakanda. T'Challa used Klaw's own weapon against him to drive him out of Wakanda. Hunter went on to become the White Wolf, leader of the Wakanda secret police known as the Hatut Zeraze. He became the Black Panther by defeating his uncle, S'yan, the existing Black Panther, and when he won the fight he was rewarded with a heart-shaped herb that granted him super human abilities. Not only did it grant him great power, but it also linked him to the God that his people looked up to, the Panther God Bast. As the new Black Panther and leader of Wakanda, he slowly transformed it into a more technologically advanced city. He also disbanded the Hatut Zeraze and acted from that moment on as a peacekeeper in Wakanda.

Before his father passed away he was always taught to stay two steps ahead of his enemies, and another three steps ahead of his allies. Upon seeing the other heroes in America, he decided to look into them a bit closer. The first group he watched closely was the Fantastic Four. They consisted of a group of heroes that were a pseudo-family lead by Reed Richards (Mr. Fantastic) and his other members included Sue Storm (Invisible Woman), Johnny Storm (Human Torch) and Ben Grimm (The Thing). He viewed these super beings as potential threats to his home Wakanda, and decided to invite them to get a closer look at them. He ran them through a series of a tests but when his old enemy Klaw returned, the Fantastic Four lent him a helping hand. With their support, his worry of the Fantastic Four being a threat disappeared quickly. However, his fear of the other super powered individuals still existed.

T'Challa joined the American based group of Avengers to spy on them and learn of their allegiances. The group quickly won over his affection however as they all became close allies and true friends. He took on the identity of a man named Luke Charles while in America and began to teach, furthermore, in his time in America he began to develop romantic feelings for a beautiful singer named Monica Lynne. The two would eventually get married. He even began to work with Tony Stark to better the environment in Wakanda as he helped make the economic situation better. He wasn't always a part of the Avengers as he would occasionally go back to Wakanda to take care of personal matters. When he did return eventually, he helped them take down villains like Scorpio and Red Skull when the two tried to take down the United States government from the inside. The team however disbanded once again when Scarlet Witch lost her sanity.
