Fantastic Four #52 & #53
During this debut appearance of Black Panther, T'Challa invites Reed Richards, Sue and Johnny Storm, and Ben Grimm to Wakanda, only to attack them. T'Challa's true motives are soon revealed, as he's testing his abilities to see if he's capable of fighting Klaw.
Avengers #87
By letting writer Roy Thomas and artist Sal Buscema tell T'Challa's origin story within the pages of Marvel's flagship supergroup title, this comic serves as T'Challa's origin story for a future solo series. It also created a solid foundation for T'Challa and Wakanda in mainstream comic book history.
“Revenge of the Black Panther” has everything, from killer samurais, King Soloman's frog, and a three-way bout between the Avengers, Black Panther, and his foe Ulysses S. Klaw. In this comic, co-creator Jack Kirby explores the origins of vibranium and places Black Panther against apartheid.
Panther's Rage #6 thru #8
"Panther's Rage" introduces Erik Killmonger, who would become the antagonist of Ryan Coogler's "Black Panther." As one of the most significant antagonists in the "Black Panther" canon, Killmonger's introduction should not be missed.
Panther's Quest
This 25-chapter story published in the "Marvel Comics Presents" anthology offered creators a chance to tell stories featuring lesser-known characters. As a result, T'Challa became a more compelling protagonist, finding complex emotional stakes in his family relationships and establishing connections between Wakanda and real-world African nations.
