Black Panther is a proud and powerful ruler of Wakanda, a country he loves with all his heart and defends with all his strength. His influence and power have allowed him to become well known amongst other countries, most of whom acknowledge him as a foreign diplomat. This has led him to become good friends with a number of other superheroes, including Iron Man.
T'Challa is the ruler of the small African nation of Wakanda, home of the world's biggest supply of Vibranium Alloy. He is the latest in the ancient line of Black Panthers, who defend Wakanda from their invaders. His mind and body have been enhanced by a infusion of a secret heart-shaped herb that enhanced his physical strength and agillity, coupled with his bullet-proof Panther suit with a high-tech cloaking abillity that blends with the shadows, and can generate energy claws that slash through any material.
Tony Stark considers T'Challa a good friend and as director of S.H.I.E.L.D., he gives the Panther the full support of his troops and resources to aid in it's defense, and has given him diplomatic immunity. Klaw was known to have attacked Wakanda, but was defeated.
