Fanatic Years

Described as the greatest champion the IntergalacticEmpire of Wakanda has ever seen.  He is the decimator of the Teku-Maza, the scourge of the Regellians [Black Panther v7 #6].

In his youth he was classified by Bast as a fanatical in his faith so much so she was drawn to him across the vastness of space. He was first a mercenary then a great warrior in the Hatut Zeraze who became so popular that he was seen as a threat to the leading monarchy. At thistime he was given a two prophecies by Bast “Trust not in mortal men, only inthe glory of the Orisha” and “The day would come, when a legendary avatar wouldreturn and then you will be discarded and replaced” [Black Panther v7 #6].

The second prophecy shook him to his core so much so he relied on men more than the gods. As a result, he was betrayed by his king and sent out on a suicide mission. Here, however, he found a “Klyntar”, the same symbiote that empowers Venom and carnage [Black Panther v7 #6].


He pledged himself to the Klyntar because it needed him; it was now part of him and thus would never betray him. Returning home he slaughtered his king and all who opposed him, thus started the expansion of theWakandan Galactic Empire [Black Panther v7 #6].

He razed star systems, imposed order where there was none, brought the purifying light of Bast and her gospel to many galaxies. He was often called monster but his faith carried him, that only the strong can ever have durable peace. His methods were not civil but he saw them as necessary[Black Panther v7 #6].

When news that the Maroons had a new member under the mantle of T’challa and was igniting a rebellion he was very upset [BlackPanther v7 #2]. Things escalated until he decided there can be only one chosen by Bast [Black Panther v7 #3-5].


Traveling through the Orisha gate he met with and reminisced with the goddess Bast while they were watched by the Orisha pantheon. He eventually battles Bast and manages to seemingly kill her and steal her power thus making him a god in the process as he tries to thwart his destiny [Black Panther v7 #6].
