Black Panther Plot Recap
After the death of King T’Chaka during the events of Captain America: Civil War, Prince T’Challa returns home to Wakanda, a secluded nation in eastern Africa that presents itself as a third-world country but in reality is the most technologically advanced nation in the world thanks to their monopoly on the metal called vibranium. After being coronated as the new King and the new Black Panther, sworn protector of Wakanda, T’Challa confronts hidden truths about his deceased father and an American named Erik “Killmonger” Stevens, who attempts to claim the throne and the title of Black Panther for himself.
