I am not king of all people. I am king of Wakanda. And it is my responsibility to make sure our people are safe and that vibranium does not fall into the hands of a person like you. [First lines]
Young N'Jadaka: Baba.
N'Jobu: Yes, my son?
Young N'Jadaka: Tell me a story.
N'Jobu: Which one?
Young N'Jadaka: The story of home.
N'Jobu: Millions of years ago, a meteorite made of vibranium, the strongest substance in the universe, struck the continent of Africa, affecting the plant life around it. And when the time of men came, five tribes settled on it and called it Wakanda. The tribes lived in constant war with each other until a warrior shaman received a vision from the panther goddess Bast, who led him to the Heart-Shaped Herb, a plant that granted him superhuman strength, speed, and instincts. The warrior became king and the first Black Panther, the protector of Wakanda. Four tribes agreed to live under the king's rule, but the Jabari tribe isolated themselves in the mountains. The Wakandans used vibranium to develop technology more advanced than any other nation, but as Wakanda thrived, the world around it descended further into chaos. To keep vibranium safe, the Wakandans vowed to hide in plain sight, keeping the truth of their power from the outside world.
Young N'Jadaka: And we still hide, Baba?
N'Jobu: Yes.
Young N'Jadaka: Why?
[In 1992, N'Jobu and Zuri (posing as an American named James) are discussing possible plans to break N'Jadaka's mother (and N'Jobu's wife) out of prison as a TV is on to show the Los Angeles riots]
N'Jobu: Hey, look. If we get in and out quick, there will be no worries. You and the van come in from the west around the corner and laying right here. Me and the twins pull up right here leaving this car behind.
[N'Jobu and Zuri hears a plane.]
N'Jobu: Hide the straps.
[Zuri hides the guns inside a pull apart closet and covers the door. N'Jobu pulls down an African tapestry to hide his secret plans and peeks outside the curtain to see his son playing basketball with his friends.]
Zuri: Yo, is it the feds?
N'Jobu: No.
[There's knocking on the door and Zuri walks over to the door with a loaded handgun. He looks through the peephole to see two members of the Dora Milaje carrying vibranium spears]
Zuri: It's these two Grace Jones looking chicks. They're holding spears.
N'Jobu: [Realizing who the women are] Open it.
Zuri: You serious?
N'Jobu: They won't knock again!
[Zuri opens the door for the women who walk in]
N'Jobu: I observed for as long as I could. Their leaders have been assassinated. Communities flooded with drugs and weapons. They are overly policed and incarcerated. All over the planet, our people suffer because they don't have the tools to fight back. With vibranium weapons they can overthrow all countries and Wakanda can rule them all, the right way.
T'Chaka: [to his brother] Did you think you were the only spy we sent to the States? [Zuri reveals himself]
