The Black Panther has been a protector of Wakanda for generations. A mantle passed from warrior to warrior. Now because your friend murdered my father, I also wear the mantle of king. So I ask you, as both warrior and king, how long do you think you can keep your friend safe from me?
~Black Panther to Captain America
T’Challa is the king of the nation of Wakanda, assuming the role of the protector of his tribe, Black Panther. Due to his father being assassinated in a terrorist attack orchestrated by Colonel Helmut Zemo, T’Challa focused on killing the man he believed to be responsible – Winter Soldier. This led him into the conflict between the Avengers, siding with Iron Man’s team. However, when T’Challa learned of Zemo’s deception, he assisted Winter Soldier and allowed him to recover from his trauma in Wakanda.
