Wakanda forever

Science explains how Wakanda really got all that vibranium

In Wakandan lore, an asteroid impact 10,000 years ago delivered the alien metal to Earth.

But assuming a metal with these traits could exist...how did Wakanda get enough of it to sustain themselves for 10,000 years?

But let’s say an asteroid that big smashed into and not destroyed the planet and its inhabitants. The next question would be: how would the Wakandans get the metal?

But again... that’d have to be one massive vibranium-rich asteroid.

Of course, that’d mean that multiple asteroids would have to impact the same place over and over again.

And considering that anywhere on Earth’s surface has a less than one percent chance of being impacted, that’d be quite the coincidence.
