"When stolen Wakandan Vibranium was used to make a terrible weapon, we in Wakanda were forced to question our legacy. Those men and women killed in Nigeria were part of a goodwill mission from a country too long in the shadows. We will not, however, let misfortune drive us back. We will fight to improve the world we wish to join."
T'Chaka at the signing of the Sokovia Accords[src]

Wakanda, officially the Kingdom of Wakanda, is a small, isolationist country located in the center of Africa. It is ruled by the heir of the title of Black Panther, and currently the only known source of the rare metal Vibranium.


Discovery of Vibranium

Howard Stark, founder and CEO of Stark Industries, sent his researchers to Africa. In one of its deepest regions, they managed to discover Vibranium, a rare metal that supposedly absorbed vibrations and kinetic energy naturally. Stark crafted a shield with the Vibranium to host a demonstration of this discovery at Ciro's, a famous local nightclub in Los Angeles.[1]

Nick Fury and Tony Stark discussing the Avengers Initiative.

Wakanda was marked as a "hot-spot" for activities monitored by S.H.I.E.L.D. As such, it was displayed in the holographic maps used by the organization to oversee those activities, such as the ones present in the room where Nick Fury met with Tony Stark to discuss his formal integration into the Avengers Initiative.[2]

Theft of Vibranium

Ulysses Klaue was in Wakanda once, where he stole large amounts of Vibranium and had the word "thief" branded on his neck.[3]

Sokovia Accords

"You know if they find out he's here, they'll come for him."
"Let them try."
Steve Rogers and T'Challa[src]

During the Attack on the IFID Headquarters, the Scarlet Witch inadvertently caused the death of 11 relief workers while trying to stop Crossbones from letting out a bomb in a civilian occupied area. After the Sokovia Accords were set in stone, T'Chaka, the king of Wakanda and his son, the prince T'Challa represented Wakanda in the United Nations panel where the accords where to be ratified. However, the panel was bombed by Helmut Zemo, who framed Bucky Barnes, and that resulted in the loss of many lives, including T'Chaka himself.

T'Challa, convinced that Barnes was the perpetrator, sought to avenge his father, but relented when he refused to let vengeance consume him after the misconceptions were clear.[4] To atone for his attacks against Captain America and Winter Soldier, he allowed the two refuge in Wakanda, even granting the latter access to a Cryostasis Chamber inside a Medical Center as a personal favor, as Bucky Barnes wished to remain under cryostasis until such a point when his HYDRA brainwashing could be undone.[5]
