Winston Duke of Black Panther has received plenty of praise for both his good looks and performance as M’Baku in the record-breaking superhero flick. Duke has now launched a line of apparel based on the character.
“Antagonists” challenging established norms and expectations…! @blackpanther is officially the highest grossing comic book film in U.S. history. This is what that looks like: these faces, these shapes, these colors, these genders, these lineages. #BeTheAntagonist . . . #blackpanther #killmonger #wakabi #mbaku

A portion of the proceeds will be donated to the American Diabetes Association.
“Join me, M’Baku, the leader of the Jabari tribe, with my exclusive Black Panther design,” reads his statement on the clothing line. “A portion of proceeds supports a cause close to my heart, the American Diabetes Association. Many members of my family and extended family are living with diabetes. They are rockstars and deserve the support needed to thrive.”
The launch will begin with six pieces ranging in price from $25-$49.99, including hoodies, tanks and long-sleeve tees, all inspired by the motherland and featuring the phrase, “Wakanda Forever.”
Shop Duke’s new line here fast, as sales for the limited collection are set to end April 27th.
