Jubilee would totally take her skating…..Seriously, everyone needs to read X-23’s series.
Oh, Chris Claremont. You do love your lesbians.
And your body horror.
And your possession/mind control.
Man, this came out creepier than I intended.

Technological prowess is definitely vital. Wakanda is often called “the most technologically advanced nation in the world” in the comics and that’s crucial to explaining how it has survived and stayed independent for so long. Nobody has to explicitly say “this is the most advanced country in the world”. It can be shown through examples of tech that’s at least on par with what we’ve seen from SHIELD and Tony Stark. There has to be a sense that they’re a few steps ahead and prepared for anything.
Advancement in general is a huge part of Wakandan culture, which is part of why it actually isn’t a social utopia. The other essential element of Wakanda is the importance of tradition. Many of T’Challa’s problems come from the fact that he’s more globally-minded than his predecessors and there’s a large portion of Wakanda that prefers the “old ways.” They want T’Challa to just look after Wakanda and not be influenced by the outside world. They’re the “if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it” crowd. But as I mentioned, being prepared for anything is the other part of Wakandan culture and T’Challa sees his work outside of Wakanda as a way of doing that. Balancing new and old, knowing where you’re going while remembering where you came from, these are the concepts that define both Wakanda and the Black Panther.

Rape is the only crime on the books for which arguing that the temptation to commit it was too clear and obvious to resist is treated as a defence. For every other crime, we call that a confession.
