Avengers Vol.1 #87


Feeling melancholy and homesick, T'Challa shares his personal story with Earth's Mightiest Heroes for the first time. The panther speaks about his childhood in Wakanda, the death of his father, his initial encounter with A.I.M., and the new leadership void in his homeland. The Black Panther has a big decision to make: stay with the Avengers or return to Wakanda. What will T'Challa do?
