Black Panther is a Marvel character that was created by writer-editor Stan Lee and writer-artist Jack Kirby and first appeared in Fantastic Four #52 (cover-dated July 1966). Black Panther’s real name is T’Challa, and he is depicted as the king and protector of the fictional African nation of Wakanda. Along with possessing enhanced abilities achieved through ancient Wakandan rituals of drinking the essence of the heart-shaped herb, T’Challa also relies on his proficiency in science, rigorous physical training, hand-to-hand combat skills, and access to wealth and advanced Wakandan technology to combat his enemies. Black Panther is the first superhero of African descent in mainstream American comics. In 2011, Black Panther was ranked 51st overall on IGN’s “Top 100 Comic Books Heroes” list.« Back to Glossary Index
