"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?"

Obviously, this will be added onto after his own solo movie and other appearances, but wanted to throw something together for the guy who was my favorite in Civil War. Enjoy!

This thread will be divided into the following sections:

  • Bio
  • Vibranium Suit
  • Hand-to-hand Skill
  • Panther Powers

Bio

Here is Black Panther's bio from the Civil War Guidebook, courtesy of @jashro44:

Here's another small snippet:

Vibranium Suit

Panther wears a suit with strands of vibranium, the MCU's strongest metal, lined throughout it.

The new Civil War Guidebook confirms that Panther's suit is bulletproof. I put the section in a red box so that it's easily noticeable:

Panther's suit has vibranium weaved into it, making it nearly indestructible:

With this suit, Panther was able to stand in direct line of machine gun fire from a helicopter without any damage to him or even hindrance:

The same goes for his upgraded suit:

Panther is able to shrug off multiple taser shots from Black Widow's gauntlet:

Even from arms length away, Panther isn't bothered by gunfire in his face:

Panther saves Baron Zemo from shooting himself in the chin by placing his gloved hand between the gun and Zemo's face, showing that even from point blank range his gloves are bulletproof as well:

Upgraded Suit

When T'Challa returns to Wakanda after the events of Captain America: Civil War, he is given a new upgraded suit created by his sister and science whiz Shuri. This new suit is soundproof by absorbing sounds and takes in kinetic energy and stores it for later use, allowing Panther to create large AOE blasts by releasing all of his stored up energy. In the movie clip we see here, Shuri explains to her brother that all the bullets that have hit him have charged his suit, so when he jumps on the hood of an SUV and releases that energy, it crushes the hood in on itself and causes the car to flip out of control. His new suit is also housed in the necklace he wears around his neck, and as we can see in the beginning of the clip, all it takes is a conscious activation and the suit basically "grows" over T'Challa, taking out the need to change and take his old suit with him everywhere:

With his new AOE blast, T'Challa sends dozens of warriors flying off their feet by punching the ground:

Hand-to-Hand Skill

Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Captain America The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War tell Collider that T'Challa is "very well trained" and "trained at the highest levels to fight":

Q: What is his power? Is it the costume? Is it that he’s been training like Jason Bourne?

JOE RUSSO: It’s a combination of everything. Certainly the costume gives him a level of protection and invulnerability because of the material that it’s made of.

ANTHONY RUSSO: Which is vibranium, for non-fans, and it’s the same material that Cap’s shield is made of.

JOE: It can absorb the energy, so it’s much harder to damage him as a character, and you can see that in the movie he can take a lot of punishment including bullets to the face. He is very well trained. He’s from one of the wealthiest countries on the planet, so there’s great infrastructure there; very technologically advanced country. So he’s been trained at the highest levels to fight, but he also has his own superpowers, which derive from the mythology of his nation. Those will be explored more in Black Panther, it’s clearly evident when he’s able to fight the Winter Soldier out of costume, and go toe-to-toe with him, that he is an enhanced individual.

Director Ryan Coogler says that T'Challa fights like an "African king" and that all the attention in the room would be on him and shot a certain scene in the movie in a particular way to convey to the audience that, like in the comics, Wakandans are all really skilled at fighting and that you don't want to fight any of them:

"In my mind, I saw Wakandans as a noble people, an ancient people, but in the comics, they’ve always been people who can fight really, really good. They’re incredibly dangerous. In all of them, that’s one thing that’s consistent. You don’t want to fight a Wakandan, whether it’s T’Challa, whether it’s any of them.

The casino scene, for me, was about Wakanda’s trying to hide. They’re trying to blend in. They’re trying their best not to make a scene, and eventually, they just can’t hold it in anymore. So I wanted each one of those three characters, they way that they fought to be different, and to be equally impressive.

T’Challa is a super-powered guy who fights like a king, like an African king, and has super strength and is doing these powerful things, and everybody’s attention is probably on him. They’re trying to jump him, you know?"

Joe and Anthony Russo, the directors of Captain America The Winter Soldier and Captain America: Civil War tell Collider that T'Challa has superpowers of his own derived from the mythology of his nation and that it's evident he's enhanced when he's able to go toe-to-toe with the Winter Soldier outside of his vibranium suit:

Q: What is his power? Is it the costume? Is it that he’s been training like Jason Bourne?

JOE RUSSO: It’s a combination of everything. Certainly the costume gives him a level of protection and invulnerability because of the material that it’s made of.

Director Ryan Coogler describes the Heart-Shaped Herb as the source of T'Challa's powers, which grants him super strength to fight on par with Captain America and heightened senses. Credit to @jashro44:

“The Heart-Shaped Herb is how Black Panther achieves his powers. He can fight hand-to-hand with Cap, who’s a supersoldier, so he has super strength and heightened instincts that give him his enhanced abilities,” Coogler says. But not just anyone can partake of its powers. “The Heart-Shaped Herb is what Black Panthers over the generations would consume, once they earn the title, which gives them their physical edge.”

No Caption Provided

T'Challa performs an acrobatic back-flip onto a speeding car:

No Caption Provided

T'Challa is able to jump from the top of his car onto the top of a truck while speeding down a highway. Since we don't actually see the feat, though, it could be that Panther jumped all the way over the truck and landed on the hood of the SUV, but I don't think he landed with enough force to say that's what he did:

No Caption Provided

T'Challa is sent flying off a destroyed car onto the side of a building, runs on the side of the building, and then jumps off and grabs onto Klaw's SUV, ripping the tire out thanks to his claws:

Durability/Endurance

(Marvel's Black Panther Prelude #01) From the Black Panther Prelude comic, T'Challa is shot in the shoulder with a vibranium bullet:

Without his suit, T'Challa takes a punch from Bucky's metal arm in the chest but isn't even hurt or out of breath after. This is impressive because that's the same arm Bucky punched through concrete with:

No Caption Provided

Here's what Bucky's punch could do to concrete:

No Caption Provided

Panther is hit square in the back by Captain America's shield but is able to bounce right back up. This is impressive because Cap's shield, after being tossed, has lifted soldiers off the ground as it KO'd them, embedded itself in walls, and even penetrated Ultron's armor:

I mean out on digital. These scenes are from illegal recordings of the theatrical release. I'm just trying to let you know this is a very public forum, and if they can track your account back to you, minimum fines for possessing bootlegged stuff is in the hundreds of thousands.

Really cool.

I think you should add him scratching Cap's vibranium shield under the claw category and catching Hawkeye's explosive arrows under his speed category. Also, the part about Cap's shield penetrating Ultron's body is inaccurate. The form wasn't vibranium and he didn't have a vibranium form until later in the film.

And yeah I'm planning on addin the claw feat just as soon as I work up the effort to make the gif and whatnot. Lol

He did have vibranium but he hadn't made his vibranium form yet. Actually, Vision was supposed to be his new vibranium form but after the Avengers stole it he used the remaining vibranuim to make another form which you can see compared to his non-vibranium form (his vibranium form being on the right):

I mean, Cap's shield cutting into his base form is still impressive.

@anthp2000: Tbh when I looked at the feat in your Hawkeye RT that’s what I thought he did, but when I looked at it again when reading it, it doesn’t really look like he cut it. The comic’s art makes it a little difficult to discern what’s happening sometimes or how the events happened between panels imo.

@thevivas: This quote from Ryan Coogler might be worthy of note for now until the clip in the movie of T'chaka explaining what the heart shaped herb does is released:

“The Heart-Shaped Herb is how Black Panther achieves his powers. He can fight hand-to-hand with Cap, who’s a supersoldier, so he has super strength and heightened instincts that give him his enhanced abilities,” Coogler says. But not just anyone can partake of its powers. “The Heart-Shaped Herb is what Black Panthers over the generations would consume, once they earn the title, which gives them their physical edge.”

http://ew.com/movies/black-panther-trailer-decoded-marvel-ryan-coogler-kevin-feige/black-panther-trailer-14/

It makes note of both super strength and also his heightened instincts. Plus mentions he can go hand to hand with captain america.

EDIT:

Also not sure if you want to include it or wait for the movie to come out here is a showing of his kinetic blasts where T'challa sends multiple Wakandains flying even through there energy shields:
