The East African nation of Wakanda has 2 major claims to fame. This vast country is the birthplace and home to the Black Panther, plus it’s an advanced haven of the latest and greatest technology, all integrated in day-to-day life.

As you’ll find out in our complete tech guide below, one of the reasons for Wakanda’s rapid evolution is their most precious natural resource—Vibranium. Dense, versatile, and highly malleable, the potential in Vibranium’s raw form places Wakanda so ahead of the curve, it’s like they built the curve.

We’ve got your firsthand look at all the gadgets, vehicles, and super-suits that are paving the future of the Marvel Universe. All can be seen in the comics below, available to read in digital comics mega-library, Marvel Unlimited!
