The newest Marvel movie is set to hit theaters in just over a month and fans are already buying their tickets. Black Panther is set to be a huge box office hit, but who is the man behind the panther mask?
Now, I’m not a big comic book fan and only “got into” Marvel as the first Avengers movie came out. But my love for the Marvel Universe has grown incredibly since then.
When we first were introduced to the Black Panther in Civil War I immediately fell in love. I knew nothing beyond what we were shown in the film, but I needed to know more.
What We Know
While T’Challa (Black Panther) had a rocky relationship with his father the King T’Chaka we see the devastation that hits him when his father is killed.
We also know that his country, Wakanda has a large supply of vibranium. You know the stuff Cap’s shield is made from. Yep, in fact, Black Panther’s entire suit is made of the coveted metal!
Synopsis for Black Panther
Marvel seems to be done with telling the back stories of it’s newly introduced characters, so Black Panther picks up after the death of T’Challa’s father the King.
Marvel Studios’ “Black Panther” follows T’Challa who, after the death of his father, the King of Wakanda,
returns home to the isolated, technologically advanced African nation to succeed to the throne and take
his rightful place as king. But when a powerful old enemy reappears, T’Challa’s mettle as king—and Black
Panther—is tested when he is drawn into a formidable conflict that puts the fate of Wakanda and the
entire world at risk. Faced with treachery and danger, the young king must rally his allies and release the
full power of Black Panther to defeat his foes and secure the safety of his people and their way of life. ~ Marvel Studios
