Black Panther is one of the most interesting characters in the Marvel Universe. First appearing in Fantastic Four #52 (July 1966), Black Panther is the first black superhero in mainstream American comic books. Not only is Black Panther a superhero, but he is also the king of the African nation, Wakanda, the most advanced country in the world. The character was originally conceived by Jack Kirby as a character named “Coal Tiger.”
