Pure Good Wiki

This Pure Good was headlined on February, 2022.

My name is King T'Challa, son of King T'Chaka. I am the sovereign ruler of the nation of Wakanda. And for the first time in our history, we will be sharing our knowledge and resources with the outside world. Wakanda will no longer watch from the shadows. We can not. We must not. We will work to be an example of how we, as brothers and sisters on this Earth, should treat each other. Now, more than ever, the illusions of division threaten our very existence. We all know the truth: more connects us than separates us. But in times of crisis the wise build bridges, while the foolish build barriers. We must find a way to look after one another as if we were one single tribe.
~ T'Challa addressing to the United Nations.

What Makes Him Pure Good?

Captain America: Civil War

  • Though he did become determined in killing Bucky in order to avenge his father's death, when confronting Zemo as well as seeing the way rage had taken over the other Avengers, T'Challa chooses not to take revenge on Zemo and lets go of his hatred.
  • Stops Zemo from committing suicide despite the role he played in his father's death, choosing instead to turn him over to the authorities.
  • He feels great regret over almost having killed Bucky.
  • Forgives Bucky for his crimes as the Winter Soldier and keeps him in Wakanda to heal to make up for his attempts at killing him before.

Black Panther

  • Rescues a group of Chibok girls from a group of kidnappers.
  • During his duel with M'Baku, despite having the option of killing him, T'Challa asks him to surrender instead, stating that his people needed him, sparing his life and winning the duel.
  • When meeting his father in the spirit world, he gets down on his knees, apologizing to his father for letting him die and asks for forgiveness.
  • When T'Challa has Klaue apprehended and prepares to kill him for all the Wakandan lives he ruined, he stops himself upon seeing the many eyewitnesses and instead hands him over to Ross.
  • He decides to take Ross to Wakanda to heal him when he sustained life-threatening injuries to protect him despite knowing that Ross would likely expose the truth about Wakanda, refusing to let him die knowing that Ross could be saved.
  • Is distraught when seeing the disappointment on W'Kabi's face upon learning Klaue escaped, feeling guilty that he failed to apprehend him as he'd promised W'Kabi.
  • Upon learning the truth about his uncle's betrayal and death, though shocked by his uncle's actions, he is still saddened and disappointed by his father's actions and the fact that he left Killmonger (T'Challa's cousin and T'Chaka's nephew) behind instead of taking him back home to Wakanda.
  • While he did demand Zuri to tell him of his uncle, T'Challa didn't want to pull that string as he tried to ask Zuri of his uncle as a friend.
  • Accepts the problems their isolationist thinking caused, rightfully scolding his father and all the previous rulers for turning their backs on the rest of the world and noting they are responsible for creating Killmonger into a monster.
  • Chooses to return to the world of the living and reclaim the throne of Wakanda instead of staying in the spirit world with his father and ancestors.
  • Thanks M'Baku for saving his life.
  • Offers to heal Killmonger's wounds after their fight despite his evil actions, but Killmonger refuses and respects his wishes after accepting death as his fate.
  • Stops Killmonger from his violent plans to conquer the rest of the world with force.
  • Opens Wakanda to the outside world and ends their country's isolation.
  • He purchases the apartment building where his father killed his uncle, turning it into the first Wakandan International Outreach Centre as a way of atoning for his family's past mistakes and to give the local community there support.

Avengers: Infinity War

  • Gives Vision asylum in Wakanda to protect him from the threat of Thanos.
  • Holds off the Outriders to buy time for Shuri to extract the Mind Stone.
  • Attempts to stop Thanos from stealing the Mind Stone and fight him singlehandedly.

Avengers: Endgame

  • Like the rest of the heroes, he kneels in respect and mourning upon Tony's death, and attends his funeral.
