Wakanda forever

Science explains how Wakanda really got all that vibranium

The African country Wakanda is known as the birthplace of the Black Panther, an Avenger with super-human strength, intellect, and access to the world’s largest source of the nearly indestructible metal: Vibranium.

Vibranium is a flexible and durable metal that can absorb enormous amounts of energy, which is why it lends itself well to Black Panther’s suit and Captain America’s shield.
