Inspiration: I. Who is Black Panther?

Black Panther. The man in the suit has defended Wakanda for generations. T'Challa is the present King of Wakanda and the current Black Panther. As King of Wakanda, he is also an honorary member of the Justice Defenders by way of his father.

II. Birth and Origin of T'Challa

T'Challa was born not terribly long after the events of WW2. THe only son born to T'Chaka, now King of Wakanda and Chieftan of the Panther tribe, and N'Yami, Queen of Wakanda. He was born to rule as King and as Chieftan, and was instructed in the ways of both the mysticism and spiritualism of Wakanda. Thus did he become the prince and heir that wakanda needed. Growing up in all the arts that would be needed, as a general, an admiral, a commander, a King.

T'Challa grew up to be a pinnacle of a man. His intellegence was legendary, comparable to great minds like Tony Stark and Reed Richards. His physical qualities above average even before the heart-shaped herb. Eventually, He became worthy of wearing the Panther Habit, and after succeeding in many trials, he gained the approval of the Panther Goddess and thus was given access to the Panther Habit, the legendary and sacred armor of Wakanda. WHile there are many versions according to the need, T'Challa performed his responsibilities perfectly…his only flaw? he had not found a mate.

It was not that arranged marriages were frowned upon, it was simply that T'Challa didn't want to be freely wed. He wanted to -choose- his bride. However, before anything could be expanded upon, his father was killed by an Assassin at a UN meeting in London. Thus, did T'Challa become King of Wakanda.

While wanting to continue his father's dream of having Wakanda step out of the shadows, T'Challa had an embassy built on US soil and earned himself a seat at the United Nations panel for Wakanda. Now? Now he must balance his normal life with the life of a King…and the life of the Kingdom's protector: The Black Panther.

III. The Events as they are.

After the defeat of the skrulls, T'Challa revealed himself to the world to be the Black Panther. Now? now he fears he may have become one of the largest targets on the board…and he would do anything to defend his kingdom.

IV. History of Wakanda

Wakanda…a nation that is heavily descended from the alien Kherubim, a distant cousin species to the Kryptonians. Aside from the natural deposits of vibranium in the earth from an asteroid that struck the planet oh so many years ago, It all truly began when the Alien Jor-El crash landed in Wakanda with his ship, bringing Jor-El to the eyes of the Wakandan people, who saw him as a god, and a host of incredible technology.

It was then prince T'Chaka who had dealt with and served with Jor-El during the World Wars on occassion. However, as Wakanda was prone to do, they kept their secrets and isolation a priority, so these situations were rare; as such, The Black Panther has been close friends with Jor-El since T'Chaka swore an oath of brotherhood with him.

Rating: || Right of the King || Champion || The royal family of Wakanda can ingest safely a rare plant called the Heart-Shaped Herb. This enhances their physical abilities to the pinnacle of human ability. T'Challa is thus far more agile than any Olympic athelete, with almost superhuman reaction time. He can run up to forty miles per hour and can run as fast as a cheetah for short distances. This agility allows him supreme balance and amazing acrobatic ability. He is also difficult to hold onto as he has supreme flexibility. He can easily sidestep attacks from most any enemy and can even dodge gunfire at all but point-blank range. He can lift eight hundred pounds or more without difficulty and likely could squat-lift somewhere around two thousand. though his absolute limit isn't known. His tissues are denser and stronger than a normal human's, allowing him to be more or less immune to cuts, blow, or penetrating wounds from normal-strength foes and even gunfire has limited effect. He heals very quickly, though this is not supernatural. His body is very efficient in removing toxins from his bloodstream and thus fatigues very slowly. He is also immune to poisons, diseases and other toxins. His body uses oxygen very well, thus he can hold his breath for minutes at a time while exerting himself and can also function well at high altitudes or other environments with low oxygen. ||
Enhanced Senses Superior T'Challa's senses have been enhanced to superhuman levels - he can see into the infrared and ultraviolet ends of the spectrum and thus can see in what would be complete darkness to others. He can see much farther and more clearly than most people and can see fine details that others might miss. He can track by scent and has memorized thousands of common and uncommon scents. He can pick up the smell of explosives and certain other chemicals and can determine if someone is lying by changes in scent. He can feel fine differences in materials on his bare skin and he can taste individual flavors or chemicals at much lower parts per million than a normal person.
Ancient Link Superior T'Challa has the power to draw all the knowledge, strength, and every experience from every previous Black Panther via entering a meditative trance. In this way, he can even speak with his father, T'Chaka; this is also incredibly useful in his youth as a king and possesses an immediate outlook on what a previous or famous Black Panther would do in a particular situation, as well as have that wisdom bestowed upon him…though he often has to figure it out himself through complex philosophical statements and queries.

If he needed to perform specialized surgeries, he could learn to do them very quickly with quick research in the Wakandan medical literature.
