Cable crash-lands in the African nation of Wakanda and is taken away to receive medical attention. He meets T’Challa, who knows he is no threat to his kingdom. Treating him is Dr. Joshua Itobu, T’Challa’s cousin, who normally lives and works in America. Joshua feels Wakanda needs to utilize its vibranium assets and become a major player in the world. T’Challa is content to maintain his country’s traditions and open their country up gradually. T’Challa shows Nathan around, and explains how his scientists are carrying out research on vibranium to benefit all of mankind. Elsewhere, Joshua speaks with Ulysses Klaw, whom he has smuggled into the country. Joshua wants Klaw to help him carry out a coup d'état, but Klaw’s purpose for being there is much more selfish. He is dying, and requires some vibranium to fix his broken sonic blaster. Because Joshua takes too long in getting Klaw access to the precious metal, Klaw almost kills him and heads inside T’Challa’s techno jungle to retrieve some vibranium. There, he is tackled by Cable and the two men fight. Meanwhile, T’Challa discovers Joshua’s ruined hut and finds his cousin apologizing for his misdeeds. T’Challa then helps Cable defeat Klaw, and they throw him into a vacuum chamber, where his body is torn apart.
