Wakanda is rich in natural resources – the fictional metal Vibranium, which was used to make Captain America’s shield. Vibranium is the source of Wakanda’s wealth and technological development.
T’Challa made his debut in 1966, is the first black superhero in mainstream comics. T challa who shows his position as leader of an advanced African nation, is not an American though. T’Challa is more than just his muscles, he is symbol of African, not just African American, pride, and brings to life a sense of fame and perfection.
