T'Challa, alias the Black Panther, is the king of Wakanda, and also the country's number 1 superhero. He takes his royal duty to protect his country and subjects from harm very seriously, and thus is loved and respected by his people.
When Red Skull began his plan to destroy the world, he had one of his 5 bases of operation set up in Wakanda. Tiger Shark led the forces of Hydra when they came to conquer Wakanda and set up this base. Black Panther tried to fight him, but due to the powers bestowed upon him by the Dimension Sphere Tiger Shark was too strong and defeated Black Panther, leaving him for dead. Tiger Shark proceeded to take the local people hostage and force them to not only build the base, but also a giant statue of himself.
Soon afterwards, Jessica Shannon, Wasp, and a delegation of S.H.I.E.L.D. agents came to Wakanda to take out the base. Black Panther, who had survived his fight with Tiger Shark, saved the group from an assault by Hydra. At first he still believed that saving his people was his duty alone and ordered S.H.I.E.L.D. to leave, but when Jessica told him what they were up against he accepted their help. That night, the team infiltrated the base and liberated the captured Wakandans. Black Panther destroyed Tiger Shark's statue and challenged him to another fight. However, the team discovered the hard way that Tiger Shark had brought the Serpent Society as backup. Jessica was taken hostage by King Cobra while Black Panther found himself in a battle with Diamondback and Cottonmouth. By deploying his Light Daggers, Black Panther freed Jessica. Angered by this, Tiger Shark D-secured Black Panther into a DISK.
Jessica and Wasp proceeded to defeat the villains and destroy the base. Since he was now trapped in a DISK, Black Panther decided to become Jessica's second partner and left his country to his people untill he could return. Black Panther was D-smashed again to help defeat Red Skull's giant robot. In this fight, he fought alongside Wasp.
When the Avengers learned of Loki's plan to open a gate to the Dark Dimension and release Dormammu, they planned to destroy the Dark Gate device to prevent this from happening. Black Panther was D-smashed to help defeat Iron Monger and Bi-Beast, 2 of the villains guarding the Dark Gate.
After the Avengers managed to rescue Professor Akatsuki from Dormammu's influence, he build a new Biocode Installer and gave Nick Fury a complete biocode. Fury used this new power to permanently release all captured heroes from their DISks, including Black Panther.
Black Panther participated in the final battle against Dormammu. He helped defend the Helicarrier against Dormammu's army of Mindless Ones when they came to destroy the 10 laser cannons that the heroes intended to use against Dormammu. The first attack was succesfully repelled, but when Loki unleashed a second squadron of Mindless Ones inside the Helicarrier, and powered them up by sawing despair among the crew, Black Panther was defeated and thus unable to participate in the Avengers' last battle with Loki. Black Panther had his injuries treated in the helicarrier's infirmary. He was last seen among the Avengers, S.H.I.E.L.D. agents, and other heroes after Loki was defeated.
