Black Panther has some great strength and powers, but his ability to defy gravity is in part thanks to the suit’s energy field boots. T’Challa is not just limited to Earth and Wakanda thanks to the space travel Black Panther suit the character wears for multiple issues in space.

Light glares and dark areas are limited thanks to the advanced eye visuals found in the suit design.
