15His First Appearance in Fantastic Four #52

Fantastic Four #52

After receiving an invitation to visit the mysterious kingdom of Wakanda, the Fantastic Four find themselves the prey of the fearsome Black Panther. One by one, the Black Panther lures them into a series of cunning traps, besting them thanks to his supernatural gifts and his superior planning. Despite

his failure to account for the Human Torch's friend Wingfoot, this issue firmly establishes that T’Challa is a tactical genius capable of overcoming any opponent if given the time to prepare.

This story also gives us the Black Panther’s origin, involving his father’s death at the hands of Klaw, as well as the secret to T'Challa's supernatural strength and speed. Admittedly, this story is a bit cheesy by today’s standards, but it’s still a fun read that features some amazing artwork by Jack Kirby.
