M'Baku is King of Wakanda and the leader of the Jabari Tribe, one of the six Wakandan tribes.

As the leader of the Jabari Tribe, M'Baku was a staunch opponent of T'Challa's rule and the Black Panther mantle. Following Killmonger's revolution, M'Baku's beliefs were threatened, forcing him to defend T'Challa in the battle of Mount Bashenga to ensure Wakanda's longevity.

Following T'Challa's death in 2024, M'Baku became the sovereign ruler of Wakanda. Upon his coronation, he became the first king to be born outside of the Wakandan royal family. M'Baku's reign occurred during threats made by the Talokanil against Wakanda, beginning the Talokanil-Wakandan War.
