Other distinguishing features: None
Strength level: T'Charra possesses the peak human
strength of a man of his height, weight, age, and build who engages in intensive
Known metahuman abilities: Enhanced senses, especially night vision and smell, an immunity to telepathic scans, and the ability to metamorphose into a panther. Like many specific metamorphs, T'Charra has a transitional man-panther form he can attain though he rarely utilizes this form.
Known technological abilities: The Panther's bodysuit has a vibranium microwebbing that not only stops bullets but saps their momentum. Like Kevlar, it can be cut if you cut along the grain of the webbing, but cannot be punctured conventionally by blunt force. The Panther's boots have special vibranium soles that absorb sound and impact, enabling him to leap off buildings up to 8 stories tall and land without injury. He can also literally run up the sides of buildings (but cannot simply stand on a wall, say the way Spider-Man can). The Panther's claws are retractable, and contain a new composite of the experimental "anti-metal" vibranium, that can break down other metal alloys. His claws can cut through most common metals. The Panther's mask is fitted with night vision lenses to augment his already superhumanly enhanced natural senses.
