Black Panther is a superhero published by Marvel Comics. First appearing in Fantastic Four #52 (July 1966), he is the king and protector of the African country Wakanda. Black Panther is regarded as the first black superhero to gain mainstream popularity, paving the way for other characters like Luke Cage, John Stewart and the Falcon. First added into the Superheroes Unlimited mod in version 1.7, Black Panther's costume can be accessed through either the Hero Maker or Suit Assembly Unit. Whilst wearing, the player is granted access to his abilities, weapons and gadgets.

Backstory

The Black Panther is a ceremonial title given to the protector of the nation Wakanda. The title was used by old tribes within the country by their best of warriors, who were given many of the combatant tasks, such as hunting or leading the tribe into battle. However, as each tribe merged with each other, fewer Black Panthers became required. Eventually, after the formation of the government and country, Wakanda decided to appoint only one Black Panther, mainly to act as the nation's symbol and protector. The current version is T'Challa, the prince of Wakanda and legalized Vibranium trader.

After his mother died in childbirth, he was raised by his father T'Chaka, the King of Wakanda. Growing up, T'Challa was trained in diplomatic relations, politics and, secretly, combat skills. Whilst a young man, T'Challa would explore the world to learn more about outside societies, as Wakanda would often keep itself isolated from the outside nations. However, during this time, T'Chaka was murdered by an adventurer known as Ulysses Klaw whilst the criminal stole large amounts of Vibranium.

After taking his revenge on Klaw, T'Challa decided to protect Wakanda from criminals who wanted to steal its resources. Volunteering for the Black Panther Trials, he took part in many fights and tests to prove that he was worthy of the nation's mantle. Succeeding, T'Challa became the next Black Panther, using the mantle to protect his people from the many threats. Under this alias, T'Challa would become associated with various superhero teams, including the Fantastic Four, Avengers and X-Men. He would was reunited with childhood friend and mutant Storm, who he became romantically tied to.
