Early Life

Living in Wakanda

"Though the blood of a king runs through your veins, it is pumped by the heart of an explorer."

T'Challa is abducted instead of Peter Quill

On Earth in 1988, a young T'Challa wished to see the world outside of Wakanda, but his father T'Chaka rejected that idea, as he warned his son that outside of the city was nothing but violence and destruction. At night, T'Challa practiced tossing the spear, tossing it outside the barrier of Wakanda. He soon watched to his amazement as a Ravager ship appeared before him.[1]
