Black Panther

Spoken by Killmonger

"How do you think your ancestors got these? Do you think they paid a fair price? Or did they take it, like they took everything else?"
Erik Killmonger[src]
"Everybody dies. It’s just life around here."
Erik Killmonger[src]
"I lived my entire life waiting for this moment. I trained, I lied. I killed in America, Afghanistan, Iraq... I took life for my own brothers and sisters right here on this continent! And all this death just so I could kill you!"
―Erik Killmonger to T'Challa[src]
"Is this your king? Huh? Is this your king? He's supposed to protect you! To lead Wakanda into the future! Nah, I'm your king!"
Erik Killmonger[src]
"I want your weapons, your secrets, it’s all mine now."
―Erik Killmonger[src]
"Is this your king?! Is this your king?! Nah, i'm your king!"
―Erik Killmonger[src]
"I hope you’re ready bro, because I’m just getting started."
Erik Killmonger to Black Panther[src]
"Can you believe that? A kid from Oakland walking around and believing in fairytales."
Erik Killmonger[src]
"Bury me in the ocean with my ancestors who jumped from the ships, because they knew death was better than bondage."
Erik Killmonger[src]

Spoken about Erik Killmonger

"A man showed up at the border who claims to have killed Klaue!"
"W'Kabi is transporting him as we speak to the palace, we need to find your brother."
"An outsider?"
"No, a Wakandan."
"He's not a Wakandan, he's one of ours."
Okoye, Shuri and Everett Ross[src]
"Erik Stevens. Graduated Annapolis aged nineteen, MIT for grad school. Joined the SEALs and went straight to Afghanistan, where he wrapped up confirmed kills like it was a video game. Started calling him Killmonger. He joined a J-SOC ghost unit, now these guys are serious, they would drop off the grid so they could commit assassinations and take down governments."
Everett Ross[src]


"Good morning, how can I help you?"
"I'm just checking out these artifacts. They're telling me you're the expert."
"Ah, you could say that."
"They're beautiful. Where's this one from?"
"Bobo Ashanti Tribe. Present day guarder, nineteenth century."
"Really? What about this one?"
"It's from the Induu people of Benin. Sixteenth century."
"Now tell me about this one."
"Also from Benin, seventh century. The Fula tribe I believe."
"I beg your pardon?"
"It was taken by British soldiers in Benin, but it's from Wakanda. And it's made out of Vibranium. Don't trip, I'm gonna take it off your hands for you."
"These items aren't for sale."
"How do you think your ancestors got these? Do you think they paid a fair price? Or did they take it, like they took everything else?"
"Sir, I'm going to have to ask you to leave."
"You got all this security in here to watch me once I walked in, yet you ain't checking what you put in your body."
―Museum Curator and Erik Killmonger[src]
"You sell to the CIA?"
"I sell to the highest bidder. Don't you worry, when I get back to Johannesburg, I'll lay low for a bit. I'll make sure you guys get paid."
"I won't worry about the money bro, I know you're good for it. On our way back, just drop us off at Wakanda."
"You don't want to go there, boy."
"Yeah, I do."
"Drop it! Or your little Bonnie and Clyde routine ends today! Put your gun down now!"
"Sorry, I'm sorry Erik..."
"It'll be okay."
"You... you want to go to Wakanda? They're savages! This is what they do to people like us."
"I don't worry about no brand. Check these out. Each one is for a kill."
"You can scar yourself as much as you like. To them, you'll just be an outsider. You're crazy to think that you can just walk in there. Ahh...and to think I saw you as a crazy American."
Erik Killmonger, Ulysses Klaue and Linda[src]
"I'm staying in your house. I served justice to a man who stole your vibranium and murdered your people. Justice your king couldn't deliver."
"I don't care that you brought Klaue, the only reason I don't kill you where you stand is because I know who you are. Now what do you want?"
"I want the throne. You are all sitting up here comfortable. Must feel good. There's about two billion people around the world who look like us and their lives are a lot harder. Wakanda has the tools to liberate them all."
"And what tools are those?"
"Vibranium. Your weapons."
"Our weapons will not be used to wage war on the world. It is not our way to be judge, jury and executioner for people who aren't our own."
"Not your own? Didn't life start here on this continent? So ain't all people your people?"
"I am not king of all people. I am king of Wakanda. And it is my responsibility to make sure that our people are safe. That vibranium doesn't fall into the hands of people like you."
"Son, we have entertained this charlatan for too long. Reject his request."
"Oh, I ain't requesting nothing. Ask who I am."
"You are Erik Stevens, an American Black Operative, a mercenary nicknamed Killmonger, that's who you are."
"That's not my name, princess. Ask me, king."
"Ask me."
"Take him away."
"Who are you?"
"I am N'Jadaka, son of Prince N'Jobu! I found my daddy with panther claws in his chest! You ain't the son of a king, you're the son of a murderer!"
"You're lying!"
"I'm afraid not, Queen Mother."
"Hey Auntie. I'm exercising my blood right. I challenge for the mantle of king and Black Panther!"
T'Challa, Erik Killmonger, Ramonda, Shuri and River Tribe Elder[src]
" I had your father killed! Take me!"
"I'ma take you both, Uncle James!"
Zuri and Erik Killmonger[src]
"You will destroy the world, Wakanda included!"
"The world took everything away from me! Everything I ever loved! But I'ma make sure we're even. I'ma track down anyone who would even think of being loyal to you! And I'ma put their ass in the dirt, right next to Zuri!"
Black Panther and Erik Killmonger[src]
"Black Panther, it must feel good sitting here comfortable."
"What do you want?"
"I want your secrets, your weapons. I'm gonna burn it all!"
―Erik Killmonger and Black Panther[src]
"This ends today!"
"This challenge shit is over. I'm the king now!"
―Killmonger and T'Challa[src]
