The Panther is all South Beach fun and youthful exuberance. What would you expect from a character that routinely drinks from the fountain of youth? The other Guardians are constantly on him to take things a little more seriously, but to no avail. He's the one used to spending his days hanging out at the beach and nights hitting up the hottest clubs in the world.
The Panther is half man/half panther and is one of only two Guardians with feline powers. He has night vision, he has super agility and powerful legs and arms that allow him to jump incredible distances. He has razor sharp gold tipped claws that can slash through 6-inch thick metal walls. The natural ability of a panther to be able to blend into his surroundings making him almost invisible is the inspiration for one of the most unique Guardian talents.
I remember the first time at Wrigley Field all of us had the long johns, the turtlenecks and the extra equipment because we were afraid of being cold. Halfway through the first period everybody's ripping everything off and we just ended up wearing what we would normally wear for a game at the United Center.
