The Black Panther (T'Challa) is a fictional character appearing in publications by Marvel Comics. Created by writer-editor Stan Lee and penciller-co-plotter Jack Kirby, he first appeared in Fantastic Four #52 (July 1966). He is the first black superhero in mainstream American comics, debuting several years before such early African-American superheroes as Marvel Comics' the Falcon and Luke Cage, and DC ComicsTyrocBlack Lightning and Green Lantern John Stewart.

 

The Black Panther is the ceremonial title given to the chief of the Panther Tribe of the advanced African nation of Wakanda. In addition to ruling the country, he is also chief of its various tribes (collectively referred to as the Wakandas). The Panther habit is a symbol of office (head of state) and is used even during diplomatic missions. The Panther is a hereditary title, but one still must earn it.

 

In the distant past, a meteorite made of the (fictional) vibration-absorbing mineral vibranium crashed in Wakanda, and was unearthed. Reasoning that outsiders would exploit Wakanda for this valuable resource, the ruler at the time, King T'Chaka, like his father and other Panthers before him, concealed his country from the outside world. T'Chaka's first wife, T'Challa's birth mother N'Yami, died while in labor with T'Challa, so T'Challa would be raised by his father and his father's second wife Ramonda, at least until T'Chaka was murdered by the adventurer Ulysses Klaw. With his people still in danger, a young T'Challa used Klaw's sound weapon on him, gravely injuring him and forcing him to flee. Around the same time, his stepmother Ramonda visited her old home in South Africa. While on this trip she was kidnapped and taken prisoner by Anton Pretorius (T'Challa would not learn of this until years later).

 

T'Challa was next in line to be the king of Wakanda and Black Panther, but until he was ready to become the leader of the nation, his uncle S'yan, T'Chaka's younger brother, successfully passed the trials to become the Black Panther. While on his Wakandan walkabout rite of passage, T'Challa met and fell in love with apparent orphaned teen Ororo Munroe, who would grow up to become the X-Men member Storm. The two broke off their relationship due to his desire to avenge his father's death and to become the type of man who could suitably lead Wakanda, but they would see each other over the years when they could.

 

T'Challa earned the title and attributes of the Black Panther by defeating the various champions of the Wakandan tribes. One of his first acts was to disband and exile the Hatut Zeraze—the Wakandan secret police—and its leader, his adopted brother Hunter the White Wolf. Later, to keep peace, he picked dora milaje ("adored ones") from rival tribes to serve as his personal guard and ceremonial wives-in-training. He then studied abroad for a time before returning to his kingship. T'Challa next invited the American superhero team the Fantastic Four to Wakanda, then attacked and neutralized them individually in order to prove himself worthy as his people's defender and to test the team to see if it could be an effective ally against Klaw, who had become a supervillain made of living sound. After the ruler made proper amends to the superhero team, the four befriended and helped T'Challa, and he in turn aided the heroes against the supervillain the Psycho-Man.

 

T'Challa later joined the Avengers, beginning a long association with that superhero team. He first battled the Man-Ape while with the group, and then met the American singer Monica Lynne, with whom he became romantically involved. He helped the Avengers defeat the second Sons of the Serpent, and then revealed his true identity on American television. He encountered Daredevil, and revealed to him that he had deduced Daredevil's secret identity.

Marvel is simply killing it with these announcements.  a\Absolutely burying any DC/Warner announcements made.

 

Aaaaa!  Black Panther is gonna be so damn fun!

 

The way Disney has nailed the Marvel universe gets me even more hyped for the new run of Star Wars flicks.

LOL no. If anything DC made the smart move releasing theirs first because marvels looks identical to theirs

DC still has a few bullets in it's barrel. It's a great slate, and it gives you and idea how civil war won't be the huge story it was in the comics because it's being put into one movie.

You're just excited about black panther lol.

Not excited about the entire slate actually.  Releasing your movie plans first doesn't mean jack if they can't compete in the long run.  I'm actually a fan of laying back and letting others say what they will then coming in usurping that, which is what Marvel has done here.  I just think that DC has really been trying to play fast forward catch-up right now, and them throwing all of this stuff together quickly without establishing a universe first is a massive mistake. 

 

And of course I'm excited about Black Panther - who wouldn't be?

It's genius. Again marvel was required to do it first. Iron man grossed under 600 million.

If they released avengers without any buildup it would have made 800million

If they released justice league it would make a billion easy just by having batman and superman in it

DC is capable of things marvel never was. It's genius to use batman and superman (look at the name of the movie) to create that universe and introduce other characters

Also DC smartly held back 3 huge things. Batman movie, superman movie, BvS teaser

It's a chess game for buzz. Cap 3 civil war is announced, DC announces it's slate, 3 weeks later marvel announces an identical looking slate.

DC has a few more bullets in their bag. Marvel has only one assuming it's even there which is spiderman

In the end what matters is that the movies from both sides are good.

This is pretty much perfect casting. Boseman was fantastic in 42 and I hear he was great in Get on Up although I'm yet to see it.

 

Also, what's with all the fanboy fighting between Marvel and DC? I really don't get it, you get to enjoy films from both companies. I've liked all casting decisions from both sides so far, although I am still nervous about Jesse Eisenberg as Lex Luthor.

Huge grab for marvel. So far their best outings are

Winter soldier
Guardians of the Galaxy
Iron man
Avengers

This now has potential to even be #1

You have a great talent in Chadwick boseman

Now you have an incredibly talented young director who will treat the first major African American superhero coming to screen with incredible reverence.

Really looking forward to this one

The only thing I disagree with is Marvel's promotion of Black Panther in contrast to how WW is being presented by DC.   She is up front, and center, obviously there, her arrival is treated essentially as a big deal. 

Now I look at Black Panthers on the cover of Entertainment Weekly. We have Cap and Tony in front, masks off, in front of Black Panther, standing behind them, mask on, with a comedic "meow" put next to him..


THAT is the only problem I have.   

I wanted to see Black Panther get similar treatment, front and center, mask off, the guy who doesn't take EITHER side in Civil War, essentially the guy in the middle who will take on a healthy dose of both sides.. 

This is a BIG deal for some people that Black Panther is gonna be in this movie, not just that but after the fact his own movie got pushed back for Spider-Man you'd think he'd get a bit more promotion at the front and center.

I get it, but I don't particularly like it. 


MARVELOUS GRAB for Marvel getting Ryan Coogler.
