T'Challa/Black Panther I Badass This is an absolute requirement for being the leader of the Panther Cult. Badass Bookworm: Ph.D. in physics. Master of numerous African martial arts. Bullet Proof Vest: His costume is laced with vibranium, making it a lot more than bullet proof. The Champion: Of the Panther God, Bast. Cain and Abel: The Abel to his adoptive brother Hunter's Cain. The Chessmaster: Can play at the level of the likes of Doctor Doom and come out on top. T'Challa has encountered beings statistically far above him and ended up completely trolling them. Church Militant: In a sense, as the representative of the Panther God. Clothes Make the Superman: Not all of his powers come from his suit, but the vibranium weave certainly helps. Cool Mask Diplomatic Immunity: Thanks to his status as ruler of Wakanda. Good Counterpart: It has been pointed out that he is essentially this to Doctor Doom. The Good King Guile Hero: As a tactical, strategic, and political genius, T'Challa is this by default, regularly outwitting his opponents. In the Blood: Only members of the Wakandan royal family can successfully become the Black Panther. Legacy Character: T'Challa was the first cannonical Black Panther, but in-story he inherited the title from his father, who inherited it from another relative before him going back hundreds of years. Panthera Awesome: Named for the black panther, which is his tribe and nation's totem animal. Royals Who Actually Do Something: His nation's greatest warrior and an active diplomat and superhero, as well as a king. Science Hero: When he has to be. The Strategist Super Intelligence: Close enough. He's one of the eight smartest men on the planet, alongside the likes of Reed Richards, Doctor Doom, and Hank Pym. Super Power Lottery: Having a deal with the Panther God will do good things to you. T'Challa has: Super Reflexes: Heightened agility. Super Senses: All of his senses have been enhanced and he can recall anything he has smelled or heard for a long time afterwards. Super Speed: Faster than any recorded human athlete Super Strength: Not to ridiculous levels, but T'Challa is far stronger than even an Olympic weightlifer. Super Soldier: As the Black Panther, T'Challa is endowed with power by the Panther God to make him his tribe's greates warrior. Reluctant Warrior: Will kill if he has to, but prefers to avoid it. Warrior Prince Worthy Opponent: To Killmonger and the White Wolf. He and Doctor Doom sometimes feel this way about one another as well, Depending on the Writer. Kevin "Kasper" Cole/"Black Panther" II/White Tiger Anti-Hero Substitute: To T'Challa for a while. Badass Longcoat Becoming the Mask: Impersonated the Black Panther. Slowly came to act like him. Bullet Proof Vest: Wore one of the Panther's vibranium laced suits under his police uniform instead of the standard issue Kevlar vest for a while. He later began impersonating the Black Panther using it, and still has one as White Tiger. Cain and Abel: With his half-brother, Triage. Church Militant: Not intially, but after becoming White Tiger he is an acolyte in the Panther Cult. Clothes Make the Superman: The same costume favoured by T'Challa. In fact his first costume was one of T'Challa's old uniforms. Cool Mask Cowboy Cop: Has a definite problem with the rules. Defective Detective Empowered Badass Normal: Already a capable police officer and Panther impersonator before gaining superpowers. Good Angel, Bad Angel: In White and Black when both Black Panther and White Wolf were trying to use him, with T'Challa as the good angel and Hunter as the bad. Legacy Character: Briefly masquaraded as Black Panther, before becoming White Tiger. He's actually the third person to have the title of White Tiger as well, but has no connection to the previous two. Maligned Mixed Marriage: Mom's Jewish, dad's black, and the guys he works with will not leave him alone about it, going so far as to dub him "Kasper" in honour of his paler skin tone. Panthera Awesome: Named for one Super Power Lottery: Possesses synthetic duplicates of all of T'Challa's powers: Super Reflexes: Heightened agility. Super Senses: All of his senses have been enhanced and he can recall anything he has smelled or heard for a long time afterwards. Super Speed: A minor example, but Kasper can hit thirty-five miles an hour. Super Strength: Close enough. He gained the strength of an Olympic athlete with no effort whatsoever. Unwitting Pawn: Of Erik Killmonger, who granted him his powers, and of T'Challa and Hunter who both try to use him to their own ends early in his career. Worthy Opponent: Killmonger began to see him this way, as did Triage. Shuri/Black Panther III

Badass in a Nice Suit: His costume can transform into a business suit. Badass Normal: Under his suit, Hunter's just a normal, if exceptionally well-trained man. Bullet Proof Vest: His costume, like T'Challa's, is laced with vibranium, making it a lot more than bullet proof. Cain and Abel: Hunter cannot stand T'Challa and resents him for becoming king. This is tempered, however, by his own loyalty to Wakanda. Clothes Make the Superman: His uniform is made of the same vibranium weave as T'Challa's, carries a cloaking device, and energy dampening boots. Cool Mask Deadpan Snarker Enemy Mine: Given his and T'Challa's mutual goal of making Wakanda great, this has happened. Evil Counterpart: To T'Challa, deliberately designing his White Wolf persona to mirror the Black Panther, and sharing his desire for Wakandan greatness, but not his methods or sense of morality. Former Regime Personnel: He and the Hatut Zeraze are leftover from T'Chaka's secret police. Happily Adopted: Toyed with. White Wolf clearly cared for his adoptive father, T'Chaka, and is head over heels in love with his adopted culture. However, he was never able to overcome the institutionalised xenophobia that characterises Wakanda, was relegated to a behind-the-scenes job by T'Chaka, and is jealous and resentful of full brother, T'Challa who does not have to deal with any of these problems. Hired Guns: Became a merc after getting run out of Wakanda. Invisibility Cloak: In his suit. Knight Templar: Will kill anybody who threatens Wakanda. Knight Templar Big Brother: Despite his dislike of T'Challa he still manages to be this. Man in White: His uniform is pristine white, and can turn into a business suit of the same colour. Mighty Whitey: Subverted. Hunter might be more Wakandan than most Wakandans, but it's done nothing for his sanity, and most of the country never accepted him. My Country, Right or Wrong Only One Name Patriotic Fervour: Hunter's love for Wakanda is his distinguishing feature. Police Brutality: Was exiled for this. The Resenter: Of T'Challa, whom he does not view as strong enough for the role of King of Wakanda. Secret Police: Headed the Hatut Zeraze, the Wakandan secret police under their father, T'Chaka. Most of his mercenaries are made up of former secret policemen. Token Evil Teammate: When acting as an ally to T'Challa. "Well Done, Son" Guy: With the father in question being not only the late T'Chaka, but all of Wakanda.
