As the young heir of Wakanda, T’Challa went through a grueling series of tests to prove his worthiness to become the Black Panther and lead his nation, the most technologically advanced country on the planet. At one point, he lost the powers given to him as the Black Panther by the Heart-Shaped Herb, but he regained them by pledging himself to the panther god Bast and becoming King of the Dead, ruler of the Necropolis under Wakanda.
Today, T’Challa not only leads Wakanda and the Avengers but also the Agents of Wakanda, which provides support for the Avengers on their vital missions. He also spends as much time as he can with his ex-wife, Storm, with whom he has renewed their romance.
T’Challa is serious, competent, and regal. He was born to his position but knew that he would always have to work hard to attain it and keep it. He takes nothing for granted, especially his responsibilities, the greatest of which is the welfare of his people. While Wakandan to his core, he was educated in Europe and America, and he speaks flawless English.
