"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!".
~ N'Jobu explaining his betrayal to his brother T'Chaka.

N'Jobu is the posthumous overarching antagonist of the 2018 Marvel film Black Panther.

He is a former Prince of Wakanda who planned on selling vibrainium on the black market to ignite a global revolution along with his associate Ulysses Klaue. He is also the father of Erik Killmonger.

He was portrayed by Sterling K. Brown, who also played Will Traeger in The Predator.

Biography

Growing Up with T'Chaka

N'Jobu started off as the younger brother of T'Chaka as they both grew up to become legendary figures of Wakanda, with T'Chaka serving as its King while N'Jobu became an agent of Wakanda's intelligence force (known as War Dogs).

As the days go by, N'Jobu met an American woman during a mission in California and fell in love with her, fathering their son Erik. As Erik grew up, N'Jobu tells him about stories of Wakanda and their origins, claiming that the sunsets are the best there of the world.

Betrayal

However, N'Jobu grew disillusioned towards T'Chaka's isolationist policies, as he believes that they were doing more harm than good, as he is even more upset to learn that Erik's mother has been sent to prison for an unknown crime that she didn't commit. Deciding that the only course of action was to initiate a global revolution, N'Jobu decided to betray his brother by revealing his country's existence to black-market arms dealer Ulysses Klaue and helping him infiltrate Wakanda in order to steal some vibranium, hoping to use some of it to free Erik's mother from prison so that they can start a new life afresh with Erik.

Unbeknownst to both N'Jobu and Klaue, T'Chaka had learned about his brother's treachery from his confidant Zuri, who previously disguised himself as an American citizen named James in order to gain the Prince's trust. When Klaue's attack resulted in the deaths of several Wakandan citizens (including W'Kabi's parents), T'Chaka made his way to the United States and confronted his brother.

Death and Legacy

I found my daddy with panther claws in his chest! You ain't the son of a king, you're the son of a murderer!
~ N'Jadaka revealing the truth about T'Chaka and his father's death to T'Challa.

During the encounter, N'Jobu learned about Zuri's true identity and tried to kill him, only for T'Chaka to force himself to kill N'Jobu in order to save Zuri's life. T'Chaka and Zuri then proceeded to return back to Wakanda, leaving Erik behind along with N'Jobu's diary and for Erik's mother to remain in prison until her death. This event is what led a grieving Erik to vow revenge on Wakanda for abandoning him and causing his family's demise.

Although he did not live long to see it, N'Jobu's dream of ending oppression for people of African descent came true via his nephew, T'Challa, who ended Wakanda's isolation from the rest of the world.

Personality

Unlike most Wakandans, N'Jobu was not a traditionalist at heart, which led him to question his home nation's isolationist policies. Despite being a rogue and an extremist by nature, N'Jobu was also a compassionate individual who had a heart of gold, witnessing people of African descent being oppressed, whom he sees as his people, with this leading him to betray Wakanda (albeit reluctantly) seeing as how he not only betray his nation to fund a war against the world at large, feeling that to be the only way to liberate people of African descent, but he was also willing to eventually subdue all countries and rule as a benevolent dictator.

Due to his training as a War Dog, N'Jobu was cautious, to the point of being slow to trust others, but was willing to put his life on the line for individuals who he had indeed come to trust.

Powers and Abilities

  • Expert Hand-To-Hand Combatant: Due to his training as a War Dog, N'Jobu was a highly skilled hand-to-hand combatant.
  • Multilingualism: As a native Wakandan, N'Jobu spoke Xhosa fluently, in addition to English.

Trivia

  • N'Jobu had played a role in the events of Avengers: Age of Ultron and Captain America: Civil War, if he had not helped Klaue steal the vibranium then Ultron would have never got it from Klaue, and combined it with Chitauri technology, Vision would have never been created, the Battle of Sokovia never would have happened, the goverment would never created the Sokovia Accords, Helmut Zemo wouldn't have bombed the UN meeting in Vienna, inadvertently causing in the death of his brother T'Chaka, and the Avengers Civil War would have never happen.
