When N'Jadaka was a child, the plunderer Ulysses Klaw invaded Wakanda in search of Vibranium. N'Jadaka and his family were among those enslaved by Klaw. When Klaw was driven from Wakanda by the Black Panther, the now orphaned N'Jadka was taken with him. Escaping to the United States, with no way of returning to Africa, N'Jadaka changed his name to Erik Killmonger - taking up residence in Harlem and studying engineering and business.

Holding the royal family responsible for the death of his family, N'Jadaka had his opportunity at revenge when King T'Challa (Black Panther) came to the United States. Mutating an army of warriors dubbed the Death Regiment, N'Jadaka attempted to ascend the throne of Wakanda as Killmonger.
