Black Panther #1 & 50th Anniversary variant cover by Felipe Smith

The Black Panther variant cover by Felipe Smith doubles as one of the Black Panther 50th Anniversary variants. Marvel has been releasing a series of covers showcasing the Black Panther on different comic books as a recognition that the protagonist began in 1966.

Smith's covers showcases a large image of Black Panther/T'Challa beckoning with one hand for his presumable rivals to come forward. Right below and slightly smaller, the Fantastic Four join T'Challa in facing their potential challenges.

The appearance of T'Challa with Mister Fantastic, Invisible Woman, Human Torch, and Thing is fitting since the Black Panther debuted in Fantastic Four #52 in July 1966.
