Fight for the Throne[]

After their father was killed, M'Baku was given the throne since he was older. He did not believe he was pathetic enough to become the Black Panther. T'Challa stood up to M'Baku which led to the bounty on his head.

Black Panther[]

After escaping Man-Ape's forces, T'Challa found his father's secret lair with all of the Black Panther's equipment. He stole it and became the new Black Panther. He attacked his brother, but ultimately failed.


T'Challa was chased to the edges of Wakanda. He escaped and boarded a plane to America. He was recovered by S.H.I.E.L.D. Director Nick Fury and he was offered a spot on the Avengers. T'Challa realized he would not be able to return to Wakanda, so he accepted.

Return to Wakanda[]

After joining the Avengers, T'Challa got his teammates Captain America and Storm to accompany him back to Wakanda and get his country back. The three of them fought M'Baku, but T'Challa challenged him to one-on-one combat. He won the battle and M'Baku was imprisoned. T'Challa then became the rightful king of Wakanda.


After returning to America, T'Challa proposed to Storm and she accepted. It didn't take long before their wedding with Captain America as T'Challa's best man. Their wedding was traditionally Wakandan, with a touch of American, and it took place on the Helicarrier. The whole team attended, along with all the S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, the X-Men, and M'Baku was flied in to attend, but he was sent back to prison soon after.
