T’Challa is not really like the other Avengers you know. Even though Black Panther has been an Avenger for a long time and has a lot of familiarity with Marvel’s New York and the heroes, the Wakandan kingdom will this character some distance.
Tony Stark has a lot of corporate demands, Peter Parker has, well, rent problems, and King T’Challa has a nation rebellion to quell. If it looks like Black Panther is actually a class above the other Avengers, well, then you are right.
The separation makes for a pretty fascinating character, and he is a hero who is willing to speak truth to power. It is easy to overlook this because of his heroism and all his ties to the Avengers, but T’Challa’s responsibilities have more in common with Namor the Sub-Mariner, Doctor Doom, and Magneto. Black Panther’s royalty is a part of what actually makes the insults he gives so devastating.
