1. REASON BEHIND HIS NAME
Most of the fans unaware of his origin that how he got his name. He got his name by earning trust toward the Panthers clan of the Wakanda. After eating magical herb, get gain the superpowers and Leadership of the Panther’s tribe declared T’Chall as their King. Since then he was known as The Black Panther.
Wakanda is the fiction African country which is also the great source of indestructible material Vibranium (fiction material from which Steve Rogers shield was made up of). So to protect his country from the outside, T’Chaka and his son T’Challa transform his own country into the very developed country on the earth.
In the comics, T’Challa’s father T’Chaka was murdered by Ulysses unlike MCU version of T’Chaka who was killed by Bucky Barnes. After getting powers, to utilize his potential to full extent, he train for years to become the superhuman i.e., the Black Panther. He made his suit out of Vibranium materials and swore to protect his country till his last breath.
2. BLACK PANTHER IS KNOWN AS THE MOST ICONIC AND PERFECT HERO
After eating magical heart shaped herb which is a mutated Vibranium plant, he gains the super abilities like enhance senses, superhuman speed, high reflexes, strength and high-density muscles. After years of training, he officially took the mantle of Black Panther. He mostly enhances similar abilities like the animal Black Panther who can see clearly in the complete darkness. T’Challa has a photographic super memory so that he can memorize thousands of smells to hunt down a particular type of thing. He is a master of martial art who also happens to be the word class, hand-to-hand combatant. He knew every tactical move from the previous experience and know every fighting move in the world.

He is known to be the most clever scientist and inventor as well as an excellent tactician and strategist planner.
3. HE CAN DEFEAT HIS ENEMIES FAR MORE STRONGER THAN HIM
If his non-super abilities compare to DC character, then only Batman came into mind. Black Panther’s costume is mostly similar to Batman’s suit like long ears, Black color costume, etc. In several occasions, he has defeated most powerful enemies i.e. Doctor Doom and Mephisto that has surpassed the T’Challa’s abilities still he manages to defeat them. He also taken down the Avengers, The Fantastic Fours teams by single handed only. In hand-to-hand combat, he is far more powerful and stronger than Captain America who is also superhuman.

In the comics, they fall in love and lose their virginity when T’Challa was on a walkabout rite of passage. T’Challa never stop loving her, later they were married in Wakanda where the ceremony was held for big superheroes like Captain America, Iron Man.
Their love story gets change because of the Marvel Cinematic Universe. In the comics, Black Panther and Storm were on the same side of the civil war conflict. But in 2012, Marvel cancel their marriage due to Marvel upcoming movies plan. Because Marvel Studio doesn’t have X-Men rights so that if Black Panther love interest is considered then X-Men could be the part of the MCU continuity.
