Who is Black Panther?
Created by writer-editor Stan Lee and artist-coplotter Jack Kirby, the character first appeared in Fantastic Four #52 in 1966. He is depicted as the king and protector of the fictional African nation of Wakanda. In addition to possessing enhanced abilities achieved through ancient Wakandan rituals of drinking the essence of the heart-shaped herb, the superhero 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.
The superhero became more popular with the release of the 2018 blockbuster hit Black Panther, which solidified the character’s place in popular culture and inspired millions with his honor, pride, and courage.
In the movie, T’Challa (Chadwick Boseman) inherits the throne of the ultra-futuristic but secret African kingdom of Wakanda, which is powered by the alien metal of vibranium. When T’Challa is challenged by the supervillain Killmonger (Michael B. Jordan) for control of his nation, he must use his superpowers of lightning-fast speed, brilliant ingenuity, and supreme fighting abilities to defeat his enemy, protect his country, and save the entire world.
Black Panther: Wakanda Forever plot
A sequel to the 2018 movie, Black Panther: Wakanda Forever will follow the leaders of the kingdom of Wakanda as they fight to protect their nation from invading forces in the wake of King T’Challa’s death.
