14. He Has The Power To Lead Entire Nations
The Black Panther has the resources and the people of Wakanda to back him up. They love and respect him making T’Challa capable of a myriad of things, and the least is being able to defy entire nations when he is not in agreement with them. In “Secret Empire”, where Captain America led the Hydra to seize the US, T’Challa, as the King of Wakanda, was the first to reject Hydra’s authority while the UN watched. He stood by his sentiments. In Captain America: Civil War, he decided to safeguard Bucky Barnes, while he was aware that he was wanted for criminal charges. He even went ahead and challenged anyone to dare come get him. Batman is undoubtedly an eternal fighter. However, T’Challa is a unique power, that doesn’t emanate from his paws, but down from his feet. He is known to stand his ground, like a true leader.
13. Black Panther Doesn’t Need To Hide His Identity
At the helm of the Batman mythology, there is the duality between the Dark Knight and Bruce Wayne. You will notice there is a mask that hides his identity, and like Spiderman, this is a secret that he hides from everyone apart from very close individuals within his circle. It would be peculiar to see Batman take off his mask in broad daylight. We hope his insecurities one day will help him achieve trust. But, on the other hand T’Challa is both sovereign and the protector of Wakanda. He is the hero and the king while in and out of his costume. He is not afraid to show his identity as was seen in Captain America; Civil War when he unmasked in front of government officials. He doesn’t need to hide his real identity because there is no use for it. While hiding his face doesn’t necessarily make him less powerful, it makes him more vulnerable.
12. One Amazing Suit
How many suits do you think Batman has? Well, if you have been following keenly he has one suit for every occasion. Whether it’s visiting the Apokolips, going into the heart of a volcano or even when fighting a bunch of undead talons. With this trend, Batman almost has as many suits as Ironman, and we all know it’s not a couple. So how many suits do you think Black Panther needs? In case you are curious, not a lot, just one. King T’Challa does not need to have a million variations of his suit to be a good fighter. The Black Panther doesn’t need to prepare for anything because his journey to the throne has taught him always to be prepared. To be precise and clear, King T’Challa doesn’t need a closet of fancy suits, he just needs one suit, his Virbanium suit and he is good to go. His suit is simple and elegant.
