Similarly to his mainstream universe counterpart, T'Challa was born in Wakanda, became king, served briefly with the Avengers, and later left to focus on ruling his homeland.

While attending to matters of state, an injured Storm crashed into his quarters after fleeing the X-Men. Despite warnings from Nick Fury of Storm's violent parting with the X-Men, T'Challa felt he could trust his long-time friend implicitly. Welcomed into Wakanda, Storm quickly took to helping the nation, changing the weather to benefit the people, settling disputes, and helping the innocent. Growing close, T'Challa eventually proposed to Storm, but on the night of their wedding, a vengeful Erik Killmonger attacked the couple, depowering Storm with a special necklace and revealing he'd killed T'Challa's entire family. Despite a close fight, T'Challa was killed by Killmonger, who was in turn killed himself by Storm, all part of a plot she had orchestrated to kill off T'Challa while still looking heroic to the Wakandans.
