Black Panther [T'Challa]; Ramonda (introduction); Anton Pretorius (villain); Elmer Gore (villain, dies)
T'Challa frees himself from Gore's grasp. Gore attempts to gut T'Challa with his knife but fails and stabs himself in the throat, dying from the massive injury. T'Challa makes his way to Anton Pretorius' house and finally finds Ramonda, his mother. Ramonda tells him how, when he was a small child, she came to South Africa for her father's funeral. During her time there she joined a protest against the police and was arrested. Pretorius freed her and made her "disappear," imprisoning her in his home. T'Challa confronts Pretorius but decides not to kill him and leaves with Ramonda for Wakanda.
