Somewhat over 62.5 mph but likely under 72.8 mph A bit of assumption going on but... When Captain America went for a relaxed run around Washington DC in Captain America: The Winter Soldier Sam remarks that he "ran 13 miles in 30 minutes" that equates to a 26 mile an hour relaxed running speed. As he was sprinting in Civil War we know that he was moving ...

According to Marvel, in the comics it's not the suit T'Challa's senses and physical attributes have been enhanced to superhuman levels by the heart-shaped herb. The Heart-shaped Herb The Heart-Shaped Herb is a plant that only grows in the nation of Wakanda. In legend it was said to have been a gift from the Panther God, the local deity they worshipped,...

In the MCU, we learn that Wakanda is (almost) entirely isolationist. With the exception of Bucky, who's living at a remote farm just inside the border, seemingly as a personal favour to Steve Rogers, the Wakandan leadership seem unwilling to accept any outsiders being part of their society, period. T'CHALLA: Nakia thinks we should be doing more. W'...

Ant-Man was a superhero movie in another genre Screenwriter Edgar Wright said in an interview that he wanted to do a cross-genre film that was not a typical science-based superhero film, but instead was in a different genre. Ant-Man was basically doing a superhero film in invert commas, and it takes place in another genre, almost more in the crime-action ...

Marvel published a prequel comic book to Black Panther, called Black Panther Prelude, that details the story of T'Challa becoming the Black Panther. His father chose to step down and pass on the mantle of Black Panther when it became clear he was too old to continue and his son was of age, ready and able to take over. This happened sometime during the ...

The movie glosses over this during the opening monologue (the "history of Wakanda" story), but it does explain that the presence of vibranium has allowed Wakanda to advance faster technologically than any other country. It's also clear as the movie progresses that Wakanda rarely, if ever, gets into conflicts with other neighboring countries -- early on, ...

The Black Panther (T'Challa) is able to transform into a were-panther in the Marvel Mangaverse In Marvel's Mangaverse designated as Earth-2301, T'Challa is able to transform into a Were-panther. In Marvel Mangaverse Issue #4, when Doctor Doom attacks the UN summit, T'Challa is shown to transform into a were-panther (image below). However, this is supposed ...

Comics In Black Panther vol. 6, we learn that his people call him Damisa-Sarki, which stands for "the Panther" in Wakandan. Source: his entry in Marvel Wikia 2018 Movie The language spoken by Wakandans in the movie is real: it is Xhosa, also called isiXhosa, and it is one of the official languages of South Africa. This langage is also supported by ...

I can't comment so I apologize if the answer doesn't have proper sources (as of now). I watched the movie on Wednesday. In the movie: From what we have seen, it is likely that (in the MCU at least) the future king gets to practice being the Black Panther for some time before actually being crowned in order to prepare him for the challenges ahead.

I don’t think so. The filming location is Johannesburg. Desmond Mthembu is the head of the film commission in the local Gauteng province, and told a local newspaper: “The great thing about this movie is that they are shooting Johannesburg as Johannesburg. Often you will find filmmakers will shoot in Johannesburg and portray the location as Los Angeles. ...

As explained in this answer, you are mixing together two separate events. It's a common mistake, the movies aren't entirely clear about it, but they do make a distinction between: Being the Black Panther Being the King of Wakanda. If you pay attention to T'Challa's dialogue to Natasha in Civil War, you'll hear him say something like "I have been a warrior ...

T'Challa Black Panther went to graduate school at Oxford University in England and received a PhD in Physics. That's from this Wikia article, citing the Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z Vol 1:1. He gained a Ph.D. in Physics from Oxford University. The official wiki lists "Ph.D in physics" under "Education," but does not name a location.

Yes. Erik Killmonger's plan went somewhat differently in the comics. He never destroyed the herb gardens, so the Black Panther legacy was never put in jeopardy. However, there is an alternate way of gaining the Black Panther's powers. In the comics, Killmonger settled in Wakanda and became an established citizen, then staged a coup while the Black ...

I'm basing this answer on Earth 616 (the main Marvel comics continuity). It is apparently the 'Heart-Shaped Herb' that is said to link the Black Panther to the Panther goddess Bast [Black Panther Vol 4 Issue 2], although there is apparently a scientific reason for the increased strength and senses that the herb gives involving a mutation of the plant from ...

Apparently, Nothing. After a bit of Google-Fu, it would appear that Black Panther's ring does not, in fact, do anything special. The ring goes unmentioned in the "powers and abilities" section of the Black Panther page on both Wikipedia and the Marvel Wiki. The ring is also not listed as a use of Vibranium on the Wikipedia page about the metal. In addition, ...

In the comics, the Black Panther has a vibranium-weave suit. Directly from Marvel Universe T'Challa's Vibranium-weave uniform absorbs the kinetic force of impacts, rendering him bulletproof. His costume's gloves can generate energy daggers and house anti-metal claws that dissolve other metals on contact. There is no mention that I know of, or can find ...

We may have got a little more colour about the Ancestral Plane prior to Black Panther, in Captain America: Civil War: T'CHALLA: In my culture death is not the end. It's more of a… stepping-off point. You reach out with both hands and Bast and Sekhmet, they lead you into the green veldt where… you can run forever. NATASHA ROMANOFF: That sounds very ...

The MCU Cap seems to have the Earth 1610's powers, and the speeds listed above line up with the speed 1610's Cap is capable of. As listed straight from the Marvel wiki, Superhuman Speed: Captain America can run and swim at a speed between 60-80 miles per hour with ease, and potentially more while under stress. Seeing how Bucky and T'Challa seem to be on ...

I dont see why not, as the sovereign on Wakanda, the Black panther basically Monitors himself thus keeping to the accord Any enhanced individuals who sign are prohibited from taking action in any country other than their own, unless they are first given clearance by either that country's government or by a United Nations subcommittee. so in this sense ...

The ring does have special abilities. In the words of Anthony Russo, Co-Director of Civil War, Black Panther’s ring is special to him because it was worn by his father, the king. When he puts it on for the first time in Civil War, it’s symbolic of him taking on his father’s role. As for it’s [sic] powers, we will all have to wait for the Black Panther ...

They made their technology themselves. Klaue states it himself, every form of tech, down to their cars and even clothes, is either made of vibranium or has a vibranium component. They don't need outside resources because they already have it. Ultron wasn't kidding when he said it was the most versatile metal on the planet.
