|~ Black Panther|
T'Challa, also known by the moniker of Black Panther, is the protector of the nation of Wakanda. Following the untimely death of his father T'Chaka, he inherited his father's position as king. In his rush to avenge his father, he became involved in the internal conflict among the Avengers, siding with Iron Man. However, upon seeing how vengeance drove Helmut Zemo's actions and subsequently Iron Man's as well, he saw the error of his judgement and became an ally to Captain America.
After his coronation, T'Challa began hunting down Ulysses Klaue, only to be confronted by his cousin Erik Killmonger, who sought the throne for himself. After a lengthy campaign, T'Challa defeated Killmonger and decided to introduce Wakandan technology to the United Nations.
