After seeing him kick some ass in Captain America: Civil War, viewers got another glimpse at how badass Black Panther is in the teaser trailer for the upcoming Black Panther movie. The movie captures the way that Black Panther is, in a lot of ways, the Batman of the Marvel Universe (or perhaps Batman is the Black Panther of the DC Universe?) in the way that he mixes fighting skills with brilliantly devised plans.
On occasion, Black Panther has been known to let other heroes get an understanding of where they stand with him. He doesn’t often fight other superheroes, but when he does, he tries to make definitive statements. Here, then, are 15 superheroes that Black Panther has destroyed, ranked in order of the impressiveness/definitiveness of the victory.
One of the biggest changes in Black Panther’s status quo is when he married Storm during the events of Marvel’s Civil War storyline. Ororo Munroe had been a childhood sweetheart of T’Challa years before she was a member of the X-Men and he was Black Panther.
During Avengers vs. X-Men, though, the two were torn between the overall fight of their respective teams. In AVX: VS #5 (by Jason Aaron and Tom Raney), the two fight and Panther shuts down her mutant powers. They then part, with their marriage annulled. He doesn’t specifically knock her out, but come on, as good a hand-to-hand fighter Storm is, once Panther eliminated her powers, he had won the fight and she knew it (she was more pissed off at the fact that he had contingency plans in place for her).
