Black History Comic Book Characters
February 13- Erik Killmonger
Erik Killmonger was created by two colonizers (kidding), Don McGregor and Rich Buckler. The character made his debut in “Jungle Action Vol. 2, #6
” (September 1973). N’Jadaka’s father, N’Jobu, helped Ulysses Klaue attack Wakanda. When all was said and done, Klaue was defeated, N’Jobu was dead, and King T’Chaka banished anyone that helped with the attack on Wakanda. Although N’Jadaka was young, he was a part of the banishment due to the sins of his father. N’Jadaka changed his name to Erik Killmonger and swore vengeance against Wakanda. He eventually returned to Wakanda after a failed attack on T’Challa, resulting in his imprisonment. Eventually he breaks free, and ends up leading a village named in his honor.
Killmonger is a skilled hunter, skilled hand to hand combatant, has protection against magical attacks, uses various technologically advanced weapons that are infused with Vibranium, has a Vibranium suit, and he has a badass leopard named Preyy. He’s played in the “Black Panther” film by Michael B. Jordan.
Coolest moment: Killmonger defeats T,Challa and becomes the new Black Panther after the two fought in ritual combat for DAYS!! Second coolest moment: He beat Iron Man. Straight. Up.
