Is Black Panther the Most Powerful Avenger?

Black Panther probably isn’t the first name you’d think of when asked who the most powerful Avenger is.


After watching the movies, Thor or Captain Marvel might be your choice.

Even siding with Doctor Strange wouldn’t be a bad shout.


But, as explored below, Black Panther might possibly be the most powerful Avenger.

Black Panther’s abilities

Looking at Black Panther, he doesn’t exactly look like he could take on the Hulk and win. However, there is much more to him than meets the eye.

T’Challa is King of Wakanda and therefore has access to expensive and advanced technology. He also has a suit made of Vibranium.


Vibranium is the strongest metal in the world and is pretty durable. It has the ability to absorb, store, and release kinetic energy in the form of an attack blast.

As well as this, he is trained in various forms of martial arts. He can gain other abilities, including superhuman strength, speed, and durability by consuming the Heart-shaped Herb.


He has a strong heart and a firm hand – he can be both a King and a friend.

Compared to some of the more popular Avengers, like Captain America or Iron Man, Black Panther has a lot more behind him.

Black Panther – In the comics

Here is one example of when T’Challa proves himself to be the strongest Avenger.


In Avengers #33, Black Panther was one of many heroes to feature in the ‘Age of Khonshu’ storyline.

The plot follows Moon Knight as he decides to take over the world and start the new Egyptian Empire.

Obviously, the Avengers are going to stand in his way, so he decides to take them out, one by one.

Moon Knight’s fights with the Avengers are well thought out. He seeks an opportunity to rip their powers away, before taking them for himself.

Even Doctor Strange is no match for him and loses his sorcerer’s abilities.

Upon reaching Wakanda, Moon Knight now faces its King. Their one on one fight results with Black Panther ‘surrendering’.

Moon Knight goes to take away T’Challa’s powers, only to find he cannot do so. This is because T’Challa’s powers come from the Heart-shaped Herb, rather than his abilities being inherent.

This leaves Black Panther the only undefeated Avenger when facing Moon Knight and his power-absorbing ankhs.


The Future

We can only guess as to what is in store for T’Challa in the next comic series and Marvel movies. The sequel to the Oscar-winning Black Panther movie is rumored to feature the King of Atlantis himself, Namor.

Perhaps Namor may prove to be a huge threat and T’Challa can once again prove himself to be the strongest Avenger.
