Meet the character who made history. The first black comic book superhero will be making his big-screen debut in Captain America: Civil War next year, and Entertainment Weekly just released a photo of the character in full superhero get-up.

Black Panther first appeared in Fantastic Four #52 in July 1966, and is a prince from the fictional African nation of Wakanda.
