With his own agenda driving him, Black Panther aligned with Iron Man to achieve his own deeply personal goal.

Character traits

T'Challa showed to have high respect towards other people, especially towards his father, T'Chaka. He honors the tradition and principles of Wakanda and is willing to take action whenever it is necessary. When his father died he was willing and ready to take on his rightful place as king of Wakanda. While he does not seem to favor a fight, he was very quick trying to avenge his father's death. An honorable fighter, T'Challa respects his opponents and is willing to spare his enemies' lives.

However, when he finally had the chance to avenge his father, he ultimately chose not to, knowing that doing so would make him fall as low as Zemo. As he stood by Zemo, the latter explained to him about how he had also lost his loved ones too, and that he and T'Challa were not different, as they both are in pursuit of revenge. It was at this moment that T'Challa realized that revenge has completely consumed Zemo, and he realized that this is not what his father would have wanted for him. In the end, he was willing to help Steve Rogers and his best friend James Barnes, whom he had unjustly made responsible, now allowing them to stay in Wakanda for safety, even willing to risk a war with Tony Stark, along with the rest of the world if necessary.

T'Challa is not only capable of acknowledging mistakes, but he learns from them as well, he also feels guilt and remorse for his unjust actions against Steve and Bucky, he secretly does not support or agree with the Sokovia Accords.

Black Panther - Fight Moves Compilation HD

The combat prowess of Black Panther!

  • Superhuman Strength: T'Challa's strength is enhanced beyond the peak of human potential, moving into the early levels of superhuman condition. He was able to fight Winter Soldier on equal grounds. He could overpower and send Winter Soldier flying through the air with his attacks. He was also strong enough to hold back Winter Soldier's bionic arm, and duel Captain America on equal grounds.
  • Superhuman Speed: T'Challa can run and move at speeds beyond the peak of human potential, moving into the early levels of superhuman condition. He possesses speed on par with Captain America and Winter Soldier, and is fast enough to easily outrun moving vehicles.
  • Superhuman Stamina: T'Challa's musculature produces less fatigue toxins during physical activity than the musculature of an ordinary human. T'Challa's body eliminates the excessive build-up of fatigue-producing chemicals in his muscles, granting him exceptional endurance and lung capacity, greater than of normal humans. He was able to intensely pursue Winter Soldier on foot without any signs of fatigue.
  • Superhuman Durability: T'Challa's is much more durable than any human being. Even when not wearing his Panther Habit, he can survive blunt force trauma such as being hit with Winter Soldier's bionic arm. While wearing the Panther Habit, T'Challa's durability is increased to superhuman levels, thanks to the Vibranium, which allowed him to withstand bullets and explosions unfazed.
  • Superhuman Agility: T'Challa has cat-like agility, giving him enhanced acrobatic and gymnastic capabilities, as well as parkour and free running, which allowed him to easily evade attacks and take down enemies. Even without his suit, he could lunge several feet in an attempt to shield his father from the explosion at the United Nations. He also used parkour and free running to catch up to Winter Soldier, only seconds after the latter knocked him down and climbed a flight of stairs. With his suit, he could lung on and off of moving vehicles and tackle others in a blur. He has demonstrated the ability to leap great distances and perform acrobatic flips with ease.
  • Superhuman Reflexes: T'Challa's reflexes are superior to those of the finest athlete. They are beyond human potential which allowed him to to catch Hawkeye's arrows with ease.


  • Master Hand-To-Hand Combatant/Martial Artist: T'Challa is an extremely skilled martial artist, having been trained vigorously to become a warrior and protector of Wakanda, the Black Panther. His unique Wakandan fighting style is very acrobatic and heavily attack-oriented, primarily utilizing powerful sweeping kicks, aerial take-downs, and lashing attacks with hooked and clawed fists, reminiscent of the manner in which a panther strikes. Black Panther's techniques combine African martial arts such as Engolo, Moraingy, Musangwe and Dambe.
  • Master Acrobat: Even without his suit, T'Challa is a master gymnast and acrobat, capable of feats such as parkour and free running. This allowed him to quickly catch up to Winter Soldier mere seconds after being and the latter having gone up several flights of stairs. He can effortlessly outrun and vault over moving vehicles, land on his feet unfazed from several stories, perform aerial wheel kicks while fighting Captain America, to send Winter Soldier flying through the air, and lunge several feet to knock Winter Soldier off his motorcycle.
  • Master Tactician: T'Challa is a master in strategy and tactics.
  • Multilingual: T'Challa speaks his native Xhosa, as well as fluent English (albeit with a thick Wakandan accent).
  • Network: As the king of Wakanda, T'Challa very likely has command of innumerable resources and wealth beyond imagination.
  • Pilot: T'Challa is able to fly his own jet.


  • Black Panther suit: As Black Panther, T'Challa is in possession of a Vibranium suit that enhanced his durability further, to the point where it made him unfazed by bullets. The suit has retractable vibranium claws on each finger that allowed him to damage Captain America's shield with permanent scratch marks (due to the fact that Steve's shield and T'Challa's claws are made out of vibranium; as the only thing that can penetrate vibranium is more vibranium). It is possible that the vibranium's ability to absorb and redirect force is why his physical abilities seem further enhanced when suited up. He was also shown to be even more agile with the suit on, as he was able to lunge and pounce from fast moving vehicles while wearing it and land from great heights without any noise.
