T'Challa, aka Black Panther is, in my opinion, one
of the most important characters in the history of Marvel. He will
be making his big screen debut in 'Captain America: Civil War'
followed by his own feature film, 'Black Panther.' In television
shows he can be found in 'The Avengers: Earth's Mightiest Heroes.'
In video games he can be seen in Marvel: Avengers Alliance and
Disney INFINITY: 2.0 Edition. In other merchandise he can be found
in toys, books, pins, games, Marvel/Disney art, and clothing.
He is the King of Wakanda. He has many friends he
can count on such as Thor, Captain America, Hulk, Wasp, Vision, Iron
Man, Ms. Marvel, Hank Pym, the Guardians of the Galaxy, and the rest
of the good Marvel characters. His enemies include Ulysses Klaw,
Ultron, Man-Ape, Venomm, Wind Eagle, Moses Magnum, Erik Killmonger,
Soul-Strangler, Baron Macabre, Thanos, Red Skull, and the rest of
the evil Marvel villains.
*FUN FACT* Black Panther created one of Captain
America's many shields over the years. Using pure vibranium, a very
rare metal which the country of Wakanda is famous for.
Black Panther wears an all black uniform made of
vibranium. His suit also has claws. Some of the powers that come
with his suit are he is bulletproof, he can walk on water, his claws
can be used as energy daggers, and his claws are also anti-metal. He
has a cloaking device on his suit, he can also run up buildings, and
has a Kimoyo card in his suit that allows communication with anyone,
anywhere, while also being able to block radio signals. He is
resourceful, kind hearted, adventurous, and extremely intelligent,
he has a PHD in Physics.
In the cartoons he is voiced by James C. Mathis
lll. He will be played by Chadwick Boseman in the Marvel films.
Black Panther can't be found in Disney parks
around the world at this point. Hopefully someday Marvel will be
able to buy all the rights to all of the Marvel characters back so
they can possibly create a Marvel theme park or put them in other
sections of the theme parks.
