B'Tumba was T'Challa's childhood friend. After T'Chaka died, he was sent by his father N'Baza to Europe and America to study together with T'Challa. Being bested at every sport and every endeavor, he grew jealous and turned to A.I.M., plotting revenge against T'Chaka's son.

When T'Challa returned to his home land and was captured by A.I.M., B'Tuma was ordered to execute his friend, but since he couldn't do it, he freed the Black Panther and joined him in battling the A.I.M. soldiers. During the combat, B'Tuma was fatally wounded, and after A.I.M. retreated, he apologized to Black Panther before dying.[1]
