The Black Panther's secret identity is that of T'Challa, of the royal family of Wakanda, a fictional country in Africa.

Wakanda holds onto its rich history while moving forward technologically, due to an abundance of the indestructible metal vibranium. For this reason, it is also isolationist and secretive.

Did you know? This superhero predated the political organization of the same name. Regardless, his name was changed to the Black Leopard for a time.

The "Panther's Rage" story arc in the comic Jungle Action was the first to feature an all-black cast.

Would you like to draw Marvel's Black Panther? This easy, step-by-step superhero drawing guide is here to show you how.

1. Begin by drawing an inverted egg shape - an oval that is more rounded at the top and more pointed at the bottom. This outlines the Black Panther's head.

2. Use short, curved lines to enclose two curved triangles on top of the head. This forms the catlike "ears" of the Black Panther's suit.

3. Extend two long, curved lines from the head, outlining the neck. At the end of each line, draw a short line, forming a sharp point. Then, draw a straight line from the top of the point. Continue this pattern - two lines forming a point, followed by a straight line - until the two sides meet at a point in the center. This forms the necklace that the Black Panther wears.
