Today Nexter.org tells more about the new Marvel’s character – Black Panther (no, it’s not about the movie itself).

It’s high time to get to know him better.

1. Who is the Black Panther?

Black Panther’s real name is T’Challa and he is the king of the Kingdom of Wakanda, Africa. His mission is to protect the tribe. T’Challa’s father was assassinated in a terrorist attack orchestrated by Colonel Helmut Zemo so after Black Panther focused on killing the man he blames – Winter Soldier.

This became the reason T’Challa gets into the conflict between the Avengers, siding with Iron Man’s team. However, when T’Challa learned of Zemo’s deception, he assisted Winter Soldier and allowed him to recover from his trauma in Wakanda.

2. He could be called Black Leopard

Surprised? The point is that in late 1966 in US existed Black Panther Party – the radical nationalist political organization known for its armed patrols to protest police brutality against African Americans. Despite the fact Stan Lee and Jack Kirby created T’Challa before the BPP was made.

In 1972, as the Panthers reached the apex of their influence, T’Challa returned in Fantastic Four #119, calling himself Black Leopard as he pondered a return to the US, where his former name now had “political connotations.”
