10 Insane Alternate Versions Of Black Panther You Won't Believe Exist

"Happy Pants Panther". That was REALLY the best name you could come up with, huh Marvel?

Marvel Comics

In the Marvel lineup, few heroes are more beloved and renown than King T'Challa, the Black Panther. The first black superhero has been a mainstay of the Marvel canon ever since he was first created by Stan Lee and Jack Kirby. Although decently popular during all that time, T'Challa wouldn't get the recognition he truly deserved until the ever-iconic Chadwick Boseman played him in the MCU.

And it's in honour of his legendary performance that we take a closer look at the more obscure avenues of Black Panther's universe.

Like any Marvel hero, Black Panther has quite a few alternate versions of himself, whether they were made for one off what if stories, or given their own alternate universe to play around in. While having nowhere near the same amount of alternate universe incarnations as Spider-Man or Captain America, there are still quite a few different interpretations of this iconic hero.

These versions of Black Panther may differ wildly from the broad strokes of the hero they're based on, but they always remain recognisably that of the hero mantle we can't get enough of seeing.
