General Black Panther Spoilers
- The Avengers are stranded and T'challa calls upon his remote piloted air craft to pick them up and take them to Wakanda. They land in Wakanda and are attacked for Wakandan soldiers lead by W'kabi.
- They stop once they realize it is T'challa. T'challa is pissed at the aggression and the soldiers say it was ordered by M'baku, who T'challa left in charge.
- M'baku is told T'challa has returned. He plans something bad with N'gamo.
- M'baku drugs the wine and knocks out all the Avengers. When T'challa awakens, M'baku is in the forbidden White Gorilla garb and calls himself Man-Ape.
