Black Panther (T'Challa) is a playable character in Marvel's Avengers. Introduced in War for Wakanda, he is the King of Wakanda and serves as the main protagonist of the operation.

Biography

Early Life

The son of King T'Chaka, T'Challa was groomed to become the next ruler and protector of his nation as it's Black Panther. During his childhood, he witnessed his father's death leaving deep scars on his soul. With his uncle S'Yan assuming the role, T'Challa was trained in the various skills of the Black Panther.

Work with the Avengers

At some point in the Avengers' operations, T'Challa succeeded his uncle as the next Black Panther. He often worked with the team to join forces against threats to Wakanda, during which he reestablished contact with long-time ally Captain America. When A-Day was announced, T'Challa and Wakanda were planning to come out in public as an allied nation to the Avengers at Rogers' behest. However, his apparent death during the tragic event caused them to lose contact and isolate itself from the world once more.

After the A-Day

Because of a guilt-ridden Bruce Banner felt admitting the Avengers team as a threat to the world and leading to disbandment, Tony Stark wanted to offered T'Challa to own Stark Industries and his assets on behalf of Captain America's dream. However, T'Challa declined, causing Tony's company lose to Hammer Industries, and being called out by Stark for also not attending a supposed deceased Rogers' funeral for one last time outside Wakanda as well.

For five years, Black Panther and his people are able to defend Wakanda from being invaded by the rise of AIM, having had learnt that they were responsible for the incident in A-Day and Captain America's presumed death.

It was until then, Shuri discovered from worldwide intel and informed T'Challa that Captain America is found alive and revealed to have been kidnapped by AIM (particularly Monica).

Abilities

Black Panther is by far a rushdown close-quarter combatant in both air and ground. While sharing double jump, wall run abilities, and the use of vibranium-based weapon as Captain America, His main reliance is coming from his suit, such as for defensive and 3D printing new weapons. Despite sharing two door-entering abilities as Iron Man, both door hacking and breaking, but unlike him, which requires to enter Hulkbuster mode, Panther can use the latter door-entering ability normally. However, his only floor-break move is his King Mercy, as none of the normal moves works well to break it.

  • Double Jump
  • Wall Running
  • Wall Jump: Unlike Hulk, Panther can climb jump upward as well, instead of just left and right.
  • Vibranium Suit:
    • Kinetic Energy: Unleashing the kinetic energy will generate the suit's gauge.
      • Panther's Cowl: Holding [R2]/[RT] will put Panther into a defensive state at cost half of 25%. While remain holding before the combo string ender, or using heavy attack as a combo string ender, it will generate the suit gauge much higher and faster than heavy attack.
        • Kinetic Burst: Once the gauge is full by double tapping [R2]/[RT], Panther's health will be regenerated to full health, and access his suit-based normal moves without needing to enter the suit's cowl mode.
    • Weaponry: The suit allows Panther to craft weapons from it and appears on his hand(s), such as daggers, boomerang, spears, .etc.

Notes

  • In Marvel Comics, T'Challa / Black Panther first appeared in Fantastic Four #52 (July, 1966). A ceremonial title given to the ruler and protector of Wakanda, there have been multiple characters to use the identity, including his father T'Chaka (the latter murdered by Klaw) and sister Shuri. T'Challa has become involved with the Avengers and the Defenders on many occasions, sometimes also serving as a member of the teams. He is also one of the expanded honorary replacement members of the Fantastic Four, serving on the team if one of the original four are absent.
  • During the Future Imperfect teaser, a black cowl with ears can be seen beneath Maestro's throne. It is later confirmed to be Black Panther's in War for Wakanda, meaning he was one of the confirmed fallen heroes in Kree Timeline aside Kate Bishop, Steve Rogers and Tony Stark.
