At some point an early human man of the Panther Tribe discovered a Vibranium meteor and unlocked its secrets, becoming the first to take up the mantle of the Black Panther. Odin Borson, an ancient Asgardian deity, admitted he has not been impressed by such a mortal before or since.[3] The Black Panther allied with other mystically-augmented and supernatural beings to form the Stone Age Avengers, and fought an out-of-control Celestial called the Fallen; eventually defeating it and sealing it in an underground chamber in what would become the modern-day country of South Africa.[4] This Black Panther's history after that is unknown, though his legacy was continued by the royal family of Wakanda. Besides Odin, he was the first person to wield Mjolnir.[2]


The chief of the Panther Tribe, the Black Panther was noted by Odin to be unusually intelligent for a mere mortal.[3] A noble and gracious leader, he was willing to tolerate Odin's slights to his people's hospitality.[5]



Seemingly those of the Black Panthers who came after him, though it is unknown if his powers are derived from the Heart-Shaped Herb that gave his successors their powers.
