Erik Killmonger, or N’Jadaka, is a fictional character that appears in Marvel Comics, created by Don McGregor and Rich Buckler, debuting in Jungle Action #6 in 1973.
Erik Killmonger, whose birth name is N’Jadaka, is a Wakandan native who seeks to overthrow the current ruler of Wakanda, Black Panther, and establish himself as the new king. He is a skilled fighter and strategist with extensive training in martial arts and military tactics. He is also a highly intelligent and charismatic individual, able to rally others to his cause and manipulate his enemies.
Erik Killmonger’s motivations are rooted in his desire to avenge the mistreatment of Wakandans by the outside world, particularly by colonial powers and their descendants. He believes that Wakanda should use its advanced technology and resources to aid oppressed people worldwide rather than hiding in isolation. He is the only person capable of making this vision a reality.
Over the years, Erik Killmonger has been involved in many conflicts with Black Panther, often leading to dramatic and high-stakes battles. He has also appeared in other Marvel Comics titles, including “Fantastic Four” and “Daredevil,” and has been adapted into other media, including the MCU series of movies following the titular Black Panther.
