About LEGO Marvel Super Heroes – Black Panther: Trouble in Wakanda

Being the King of Wakanda is tough — especially when you’re also the Black Panther! When Thanos arrives from outer space and threatens to destroy Earth, the Black Panther leaps into action and defeats him with the help of Earth’s Mightiest Heroes. But the situation only gets worse when rogue villains Killmonger and Klaue team up with the Mad Titan to take the fight to Black Panther’s homeland!  Can the Panther pounce on their perilous plan before Wakanda is pulverized?

This special follows the previous collaborations between Marvel & the LEGO Group: LEGO Marvel Super Heroes: Maximum Overload, and LEGO Marvel Super Heroes – Guardians of the Galaxy: The Thanos Threat.
