Hi everyone! Today's item is the updated Black Panther outfit, the "bulletproof cat suit" worn by T'Challa (RIP Chadwick Boseman) in Black Panther. It doesn't grant any improved physical capabilities, but its vibranium claws, flexible armor, and improved stealth complement the abilities of the heart-shaped herb and allow the current Black Panther to become a truly fearsome opponent.
"The Black Panther has been a protector of Wakanda for generations. A mantle passed from warrior to warrior."
Notes: It uses the homebrew rules for the Absorption enhancement found on MyGURPS. I've found this to be pretty balanced and it actually results in people taking that enhancement! The rest of the suit is pretty simple. It can handle Hawkeye’s explosive arrows without a problem, and I gave him enough DR to tank the concussion grenades in the basic set. I wasn't sure how much Armor Divisor to give Vibranium, but I used AD3 for Uru (Mjølnir and Stormbreaker) so that seemed a safe number.
