After a Wakandan artifact is stolen from a museum, T'Challa, his general (Okoye), and his former girlfriend (Nakia) travel to Busan, South Korea, where Klaue plans to sell the artifact to a CIA agent (Everett K. Ross). A fight erupts, and T'Challa releases Klaue to Ross' custody where Ross learns about the technologically advanced civilization. Erik attacks and extracts Klaue as Ross is severely injured protecting Nakia. Rather than pursue Klaue, T'Challa takes Ross to Wakanda, where their technology can save him.

Zuri explains that N'Jobu planned to share Wakanda's technology with people of African descent around the world to help them conquer ___6___ oppressors. As T'Chaka arrested his brother, N'Jobu attacked Zuri, forcing the king to kill him. T'Chaka left behind N'Jobu's American son, Erik, in order to maintain the lie.

After killing Zuri, he defeats T'Challa and hurls him over a waterfall. After ingesting the heart-shaped herb, Killmonger orders the rest of the plants incinerated, but Nakia extracts one first. Killmonger prepares to distribute shipments of weapons to operatives around the world.
The queen and others flee to the Jabari Tribe for aid. They find a comatose T'Challa, Healed by Nakia's herb, T'Challa returns to fight Killmonger, who dons his own Black Panther suit. Shuri, Nakia, and the Okoye join T'Challa, while Ross remotely pilots a jet and shoots down the planes carrying the vibranium weapons. M'Baku and the Jabari arrive to reinforce T'Challa. Confronted by Okoye, W'Kabi and his army stand down. Fighting in Wakanda's vibranium mine, T'Challa disrupts Killmonger's suit and stabs him. Killmonger refuses to be healed, choosing to die a free man rather than be incarcerated.
T'Challa establishes an outreach center at the building where N'Jobu died to be run by Nakia and Shuri. In a mid-credits scene, T'Challa appears before the United Nations to reveal Wakanda's true nature to the world. In a post-credits scene, Shuri helps Bucky Barnes with his recuperation.
