Those of you who are up on your Black Panther trivia, help me out here.
Has there ever been any mention of any other Black Panthers by name, other than T'Challa, T'Chaka, and Bashenga? Also, has Bashenga ever been seen on-panel. Seems like I vaguely remember him being shown during the Kirby run, but I may be misremembering. Any help is appreciated!

I have never known of any other Black Panthers other than the names mentioned, it is about time that there should be a mini series showing the rise of the Wakandan nation.

Before the the arrival of the Vibranium and then after it's arrival and the effects of this precious metal upon a growing technological nation.

In Priest run there was a showing of other kings before T'cahlla's time, but not a great deal of information. Another area that needs to be looked at why hasn't there been, an updated story upon Azania since approx 1988 what of Wakanda's mutant population was there a growing population before the House of M?

R. Shabazz, thanks for your reply. I did some digging and actually found a one-panel appearance of BASHENGA (the first Black Panther) during issue #7 of Kirby's run on the title. It also reveals the first appearance of vibranium in Wakanda. Interestingly enough, T'Challa also mentions that none of his previous Panther ancestors have ever died in bed, which I guess means they've all been killed. I'd said that's very intriguing.

You're right that the history of Wakanda is definitely good material for a limited series. It'll probably never happen, but I'd love to see it.

One of T'Challa's grandfathers was named Chanda in an old Fantastic Four Unlimited issue, but that story contradicted just about everything related to Wakandan history, so it was summarily ignored. (It claimed that Chanda was the very first Black Panther, among other things.)

One of T'Challa's in-continuity grandfathers was Azzari The Wise, but I don't recall if it was ever established whether he was a Black Panther or not. He was probably King at some point, since he brokered the land deal with Canada that was used in "Enemy Of The State II", and if that's so then it's very likely that he was also a Black Panther.

Thanks for the additional insight, Jer.

Since the revamp, he is widely being viewed as the Black Panther who fought Cap during WWII.
