#100Days before #BlackPanther. #WakandaForever #ChadwickBoseman #Tchalla
T'Challa was the first biological son of T'Chaka, King of the African Nation of Wakanda. His mother, N'Yami, died while giving birth and his adopted older brother, #Hunter, blamed him for her death. His second mother, #Ramonda, left the family when #TChalla was only eight. #TChaka believed Ramonda had run away with another man, and so decreed that no one would speak of her in his presence again. Only decades later did T'Challa learn Ramonda had been kidnapped and brought back to her native #SouthAfrica.
He came back to perform his duties in his tribe to become a man to lead the country. He was sent to find the sacred Heart-Shaped Herb, whilst searching he was captured by A.I.M., B'Tumba was ordered to execute his friend, but since he couldn't do it, he freed T'Challa and joined him in battling the A.I.M. soldiers. During the combat, B'Tumba was fatally wounded, and after A.I.M. retreated, he apologized to Black Panther before dying.
After beating the then current Black Panther and taking a #HeartShapedHerb to link him to #Bast, the #PantherGod, the herb also enhanced him which made him almost superhuman as T'Challa became the new Black Panther, leader of the #PantherClan, and King of Wakanda. As one of his first acts as King, T'Challa excommunicated his adopted brother, Hunter. As the White Wolf, Hunter had decades earlier assumed leadership of the Hatut Zeraze ("Dogs of War"), zealous patriots who acted as the Wakandan Secret Police, performing acts of sedition, counter-intelligence, and assassination against the countries presumed enemies. T'Challa would not be a king who tolerated such actions, and so he officially disbanded the #HatutZeraze, although in reality the Dogs and Hunter merely left Wakanda to operate on their own abroad.
Being King continued to bring up new difficulties when a tribal war commenced in Wakanda. T'Challa was forced to take sides in the war, choosing #DoraMilaje over the #JabariTribe for his secret service agents as well as his harem. The more #Wakanda became a technological global power, the more #TChalla realized the threats of the outside world.
