A brief history of the Black Panther
The Kingdom of Wakanda. Deep in the heart of Africa, it is the birthplace to the Black Panther and the only known land to house the extremely valuable substance of Vibranium. Historically, the King of Wakanda ingests the Heart-Shaped Herb that is only available in Wakanda, gaining superhuman capabilities and subsequently becoming the Black Panther and guardian of Wakanda.
T’Challa was the first son of King T’Chaka and N’Yami. N’Yami unfortunately passed away shortly after the birth of T’Challa, and it was later that King T’Chaka married an outsider explorer named Ramonda. T’Challa was taught about the capabilities of vibranium when he was still a kid, and as he grew into an adult, he learned the ins and outs of Wakanda and the technological advancements that vibranium has brought to the kingdom.
During T’Challa’s teenage years, an attack on Wakanda by outsider Ulysses Klaw resulted in the death of his father, T’Chaka. After a series of events following the incident, including T’Challa leaving Wakanda to explore and learn about the rest of the world, he returned to Wakanda to eventually become king and the new Black Panther.
