David Marvel introduced Black Panther inyet in spite of his long history in the comics, he only recently made his Marvel Cinematic Universe debut.
As the king of Wakanda, the guy gets around, is Tony Stark rich, and has some pretty solid powers to boot. But what's the real story behind the man who calls himself Black Panther?
In Fantastic Four 52, he sends a fancy flying car to pick up Mr. Fantastic and his brood and bring them to Wakanda, but once the family arrives in the highly advanced nation, Black Panther immediately attacks them.
It's quickly revealed that he was only using the FF for training despite its incredible technology and literal forests made of machines, Wakanda apparently lacks any kind of exercise equipment.
While all this is going on, Panther's resource-stealing archenemy, Klaw, reveals his plans to plunder the nation's supply of vibranium; in spite of the terrible hospitality, the Fantastic Four chip in to help eliminate the threat.
With the American civil rights movement in full swing, even a fictional expression of racial equality was extremely important to a younger comic audience. It was only a few months after Black Panther's first appearance that the completely unrelated Black Panther Party came together, leading to some confusion about the relationship between the hero and the organization.
InBlack Panther tried going by Black Leopard to escape the "political connotations" of his name, but it didn't stick. Black Panther's alter ego, T'Challa, is one of the richest guys in the world, thanks to Wakanda's deep reserves of the precious metal vibranium.
Still, he's not above playing a game of baseball. Greeted by a hail of defensive laser fire, he immediately has his feelings hurt—obviously forgetting how he greeted the Fantastic Four—before stumbling across a bunch of apparently dead Avengers and finding himself accused of murder.
Of course, they weren't really dead, just sapped of all of their vital signs by a villain known as the Grim Reaper. Panther saved the ailing Avengers, nearly getting his shoulder blasted off in the bargain, and ended up joining the team. Making his standalone debut in Astonishing Tales 6, Panther returned to Wakanda after being alerted to Doctor Doom's attempt to steal the country's vibranium.
After a short battle, Black Panther threatened to destroy the nation's entire reserves of the precious ore—proving he'd rather put his country in poverty than give in to Doom. His kingly arrogance impressed Doom, who already had the throne in his native country of Latveria, and he briefly considered making Black Panther an ally.
M'Baku grew pretty fond of the crown and decided he didn't feel like stepping down—so he assumed the persona of Man-Ape, leader of the powerful White Gorillas, and attempted to steal leadership of Wakanda. After a one-issue battle, Man-Ape was crushed by an enormous stone panther totem; of course, because these are the comics, he later returned and joined the Lethal Legion alongside Grim Reaper, expanding Black Panther's gallery of deadly rogues.
During a visit to Monica's hometown, Panther got caught up in KKK business, saving Monica multiple times from their attacks—as well as a slightly-too-permissive local sheriff. By issue 21 of Jungle Action, Black Panther was strapped to a burning cross and surrounded by men in white hoods.
It's probably the darkest moment in the character's history, and even after he escaped and eliminated the immediate danger, it was clear that the Klan wasn't going anywhere anytime soon.
It's a moment in comics that proved the real evils of mankind can be just as vile as any superpowered villain. Teaming up with a stout little millionaire man named Mr.
Little, Panther embarked on a quest for a golden frog artifact. Sure, Black Panther is a trillionaire and has better stuff to do, but golden frogs it is. As it turned out, the frog opened a portal 6, years into the future, unleashing an angry alien.
It's a very Jack Kirby adventure, and it marked a huge departure from the serious tone that Black Panther's comics had taken in recent years. The ramifications of this absurd, off-brand miniseries wouldn't truly be felt for another 25 years.
This retcon planted the seeds for the characters' eventual marriage 26 years later, which took place right in the middle of the superhero Civil War. Even Man-Ape peacefully attended the ceremony, getting drunk at the reception.
Sadly, Black Panther's wedded bliss wouldn't last long. The country fell into disarray, a violent panther-man stalked the lands, and the Supremacists a group just as awful and mullet-y as they sound were called in to deal the final blow to Wakanda. Ultimately, the whole thing was revealed to be a racist plot, ending with T'Challa narrowly avoiding being killed by his own panther god avatar.
Marvel needed to find a way to explain the strangeness of their errant miniseries and came up with a story that revealed the frogs actually split Black Panther in two.
The mainstream Marvel Universe got stuck with a rather dour T'Challa, while an errant splinter of past reality got a Panther who was always in a really, really good mood—due in part to an inoperable brain aneurysm.
Soon after, dour Panther realized that he too had an aneurysm, due to being punched really, really hard by a mind-controlled Iron Fist.
It's all the equivalent of Marvel saying, "Sorry about that. The Avengers tried to rein all this in, triggering a conflict that had shades of Civil War all over again. Namor tore a hole straight through Wakanda using his new cosmic powers, and Black Panther immediately ended his marriage to Storm, using his sovereign Wakandan priest powers… which aren't quite as cool.
It was unceremonious, kinda cruel, and nobody was happy about it.The New Black Panther Party for Self-Defense (NBPP) is a black nationalist organization which claims to be based on the original Black Panther Party (BPP) founded in Despite modeling themselves after the earlier Black Panther Party, the organization has been criticized as being anti-white and anti-Semitic.
The Black Panther Party, founded in by Huey P. Newton and Bobby Seale, was based on ideas such as black nationalism and a staunch belief in the necessity of violence and armed self-defence in order to obtain freedom from white oppression – ideas which are strongly associated with Malcolm X.
