Here’s a first look at Tosin Oduye, the new key player in Ridley’s run, designed by artist German Peralta. And, grab more details about this pivotal first appearance in Polygon’s exclusive first look.

Tosin’s first act as a hero will be in a 10-page bonus story in BLACK PANTHER #3. A member of Wakanda’s younger generation, Tosin comes from a village whose people purposefully shun the technology that Wakanda is known for. Although skeptical of how his elders (including T’Challa) run the country and protect its people, Tosin will make the crucial decision to become Wakanda’s newest hero when a boiling point between the king and the nation reaches its head.

Pick up Tosin’s first appearance when BLACK PANTHER #3, the 200th Issue spectacular, hits comic shops on Wednesday, January 26.
