4. Black Panther
Each hero on this list is a talented combatant and fearless leader, but none hold control of an entire nation quite like T’Challa. When placed in control of Wakanda, Black Panther’s concerns can never be his own, but rather, those of his country and its people. Were he to be a Jedi master, T’Challa’s concerns would never be about himself, either.
He too knows grief, losing his father in a tragic bombing and hunting down the Winter Soldier in an attempt to gain retribution for it. T’Challa didn’t let that rage overcome him, however, learning the identity of his father’s real killer and striving to carve a new life for himself afterward. Because of that experience, T’Challa took a new approach as a king — and after recovering to defeat Erik Killmonger — vowed to introduce Wakanda to the rest of the world in ways that had never been done before.
He fought for the Avengers, opening up his country and its resources in support of their cause, and returned after the Snap to contribute to the final victory against Thanos. As the theme goes, none of T’Challa’s decisions have been about himself. That selflessness, along with the ferocity he holds as a leader, makes T’Challa ready to become a Jedi master. In many ways, being a king is very similar to it.
