History: (Marvel Universe Millennial Visions 2001 - "Black Panther: War of the Kings" (fb) - BTS) -The Black Panther was brought into the Avengers to fill a government quota.
(Marvel Universe Millennial Visions 2001 - "Black Panther: War of the Kings" (fb) - BTS) - Due to speculated events that either involved a superhero feud or a standoff with Doctor Doom, the Black Panther and the Sub-Mariner became enemies. The first attack involved the Sub-Mariner flooding the Wakandan capital city, causing it overgrow with vegetation. The Black Panther responded by sending aquatic Panther Tanks to Atlantis to destroy the throneroom of the Sub-Mariner. This event pushed the Sub-Mariner to unleash monstrous sea beasts on the now-flooded Wakandan capital which led to more strikebacks from the Black Panther and eventually a war between the two kingdoms.
(Marvel Universe Millennial Visions 2001 - "Black Panther: War of the Kings") - The Black Panther patrolled the flooded Wakandan capital as the Sub-Mariner dug through his destroyed throneroom swearing revenge.
