Possible Opponents


T'Challa is the son of T'Chaka, king of the technologically advanced and isolated African country of Wakanda. T'Challa is the heir to the mantle of the Black Panther, Wakanda's protector. While trained since childhood to succeed his father, T'Challa grew into a man with a highly active mind and, despite T'Chaka's best efforts, a great dislike for politics. But T'Challa's life changed when T'Chaka, deciding to open Wankanda to the rest of the world, was assassinated during a bombing attack caused by Ulysses Klaw. Once of age to take the Black Panther mantle, T'Challa continues his father's work and protect the Wakanda from enemies both interior and foreign.
