Black History Month - Day Twenty
Shuri, princess of the African kingdom of Wakanda is the daughter of T'Chaka - his youngest child and only daughter and only biological child with Queen Ramonda - and sister of T'Challa, the king of Wakanda and the Black Panther. She was created by writer Reginald Hudlin and artist John Romita Jr., first appearing in Black Panther vol. 4 #2 (May 2005) .
From a very young age, Shuri wanted to become the first woman to become the Black Panther. Following a battle which left T'Challa recovering from injuries, Shuri was tested and found suitable for the role of Black Panther and ruler of Wakanda. She possesses all the enhanced abilities given to the Black Panther via ancient Wakandan ritual, is a skilled martial artist, allowed access to extensive advanced technologies and wealth. Following her training under the tutelage of a griot spirit in the Djalia - the plane of Wakanda's collective memory - Shuri is also capable of animorphism, which allows her to transform herself and whoever she is in direct contact with into a flock of black birds or a singular large dark bird.
Shuri is a gifted intellectual mind, a genius on par with her older brother who has a vast, well studied understanding of Wakandan science and technology. She is an exceptionally accomplished and ingeniously prolific engineer and inventor, and oversees Wakandan Design Group, which is responsible for the nation’s technology, including weaponry, defenses, communications, transportation.
Shuri appears in “Marvel Avengers Assemble: The Black Panther’s Quest” and the animated special “Marvel Rising: Operation Shuri,” voiced by Daisy Lightfoot and in the Marvel Cinematic Universe, portrayed by Letitia Wright.
