Within the Marvel Cinematic Universe (MCU), Wakanda has been on the forefront of what is technologically possible. Now the science has been compiled into a new book called The Wakanda Files: A Technological Exploration Of The Avengers and Beyond
Written by author Troy Benjamin and fictionally compiled by T’Challa’s sister Shuri (Black Panther and Avengers: Infinity War) as part of her quest to improve the future for all people, the Files are a collection of papers, articles, blueprints, and notes amassed throughout Wakanda’s history.
As the architect behind many of Wakanda’s great advancements, Shuri is constantly seeking ways to improve what has come before. To aid in her search, she researches the past for context, reference, and inspiration by compiling The Wakanda Files.
In a nod to Wakandan technology, the pages of the book have been printed on a layer of UV ink with content that is visible only under the accompanying Kimoyo bead shaped UV light.
