Born the son of the late Wakandan king T'Chaka, and half-brother to the Black Panther, T'Challa, Jakarra joined the Wakanda military ultimately earning the rank of General. Embittered at his half-brother, Jakarra took measures to overthrow the king of Wakanda. He deliberately exposed himself to Vibranium, knowing that in some cases, Vibranium exposure yielded fantastic, mutagenic properties. The exposure altered his body chemistry, transforming him into a monstrous, swarthy creature. In this new form, Jakarra rampaged throughout Wakanda, until he was defeated by the Black Panther using a special injector that sadly killed him by causing him to explode.[1]


Jakarra possesses superhuman strength and stamina. He was also invulnerable to bullets, tank rounds, and even liquid nitrogen. He can generate waves of vibrational force as well as bursts of flame.


As a soldier, Jakarra was expertly trained in military protocols and discipline. He was also proficient in hand-to-hand combat, though he didn't rely upon it while in his mutated form.

Jakarra had some vulnerability to acid, but that later proved ineffective. He was also susceptible to knock-out gas.
