Joe and Anthony Russo’s Captain America: Civil War introduces two extremely important superheroes to the Marvel Cinematic Universe. One of them is Spider-Man, who is not only one of the most popular comic book characters in the world, but has already been at the center of five of his own movies. The other character, however, is T’Challa a.k.a. Black Panther – a hero making his live-action debut in the blockbuster who isn’t terribly well-known amongst mass audiences.

The good news is that Captain America: Civil War provides Black Panther with a tremendous introduction, and movie-goers will love with him and Chadwick Boseman’s performance. That being said, with the film now less than a week from hitting theaters domestically, we thought it would be a good idea to provide some background about the history of the character, and what you can expect from him in the upcoming feature.

Black Panther
He hails from Wakanda
You really can’t start to fully understand Black Panther until you know about where he comes from. The country that T’Challa calls home is Wakanda, a small nation located on the west side of Africa. You may recognize the name from The Avengers: Age of Ultron - specifically the scene where Mark Ruffalo’s hyper-intelligent Bruce Banner finds himself struggling to pronounce it. Why is this? Because Wakanda is an incredibly reclusive country that has managed to distance itself from the world to the point where some people don’t even know it exists. Thanks to its incredibly rich resources (which we will get more into later), there is no human society on Earth that can match it in terms of technological advancement, and somethings work radically different there than anywhere else on Earth. Of course, it’s important to note that T’Challa is no ordinary citizen of this very special place…
