His real name is T’Challa, king and protector of the African nation Wakanda. With his cat-like instincts, Black Panther possesses super-human traits and senses. He is smart, cunning, scientific, and strong, and uses these abilities to combat evil. Originating in the Comics, and more recently played by Chadwick Boseman in the movies of the Marvel Cinematic Universe, Black Panther has clawed his way into that black suit, made out of vibranium, in many blockbuster movies. They include Captain America: Civil War (2016), and Avenger’s Infinity War (2018). In his self-titled movie of 2018, Black Panther fights the supervillain Eric Killmonger in a true cat fight!
