    Refugees from the Eastern European nation of Sokovia leave their home country for better pastures in the wake of the Snap. Sokovia, already dealing with multiple hardships such as government corruption, poverty, and of course, the attack on the capitol by the rouge android Ultron in 2015 left the nation in a delicate balance. The Snap would prove to be the greatest blow yet and turned the fragile country into a failed state almost overnight.

    As the government quickly collapsed, citizens would leave in droves, nearly emptying Sokovia within a year. Many would head into Sokvoia's neighboring country, the Kingdom of Latveria, when the nation's mysterious ruler, King Victor, welcomed refugees from nearby countries with open arms despite Latveria's normally isolationist foreign policy.

    Would the public even know who Thanos was? I would've assumed the Avengers and SHIELD would've kept that information close to their chests.

    Probably, though would there really be any point in trying to keep it under wraps?

    If I recall correctly some civilians in Endgame, I believe in the therapy session, refer to Thanos directly. The information was divulged to the public in some way.

    Well, in my mind, telling the public it's just a bizarre cosmic phenomenon would be easier than saying 'your relatives disappeared because of a purple alien snapping his fingers after finding a reality-altering gem in a country that's previously been off-limits to the outside world'.

    Why? The public already knows aliens exist after the battle of New York.

    True, but how is the public going to accept something like the Infinity Gauntlet or the Infinity Gems? The idea that an alien can just wipe out millions of people with just a snap of a finger and his own thoughts? Just because we accept this stuff so readily doesn't mean the population in-universe will.

    They live in a universe where the old Nordic gods are real and live up to a lot of the legends, magic is real, giant space holes occur over major cities with concerning regularity, space rocks cause people to develop mutant Inhuman powers, killer robots picked up an entire city....magic space gems seem a lot less out of the ordinary and unbelievable if that’s becoming your new norm

    Popular internet memes based on the widespread “Wakandan Prince” e-mail scam. Version of this scam can be traced as far back as the 1980s when it was propagated by fax. Primarily associated with West-African con-men, the scam involved the mass distribution of e-mails where the sender pretends to be a member of Wakandan Royal family trying to flee a palace coup or other monarchical intrigue. The receiver of the e-mail was promised a portion of the aristocrat’s wealth (usually in form of gold or jewels) if they were willing to sent some money upfront to “help” the “prince” pay off bribes needed to get himself out of the country. Due to Wakanda’s isolationist and closed-off nation many desperate and gullible people had fallen for the scam over the years, resulting in millions of dollars being siphoned off to the black market from the global economy.

    In the wake of Wakanda opening itself up to the world the age-old scam did not die but merely took on a new form. Now, scammers often claim to be representatives of “King T'Challa’s Find For Global Outreach”, fooling their victims into believing they were selected for a monetary grant from the Wakandan government and just need to pay a “small processing fee” to before they can get their cash.

    Movie poster for the 1988 Eddie Murphy comedy film Coming to America where Murphy plays Akeem, a Wakandan prince moving incognito to USA in order to escape an arranged marriage back home. Upon settling in a poor inner city neighbourhood in New York Akeem poses as a foreign university student and meets his love-interest, Lisa McDowell. By the end of the film Akeem and Lisa gain blessings from their respective families for marriage and end up living together in the Wakandan Royal Palace.

    With Wakanda opening up to the world and dominating the headlines over the last few years interest had risen in developing a sequel called Coming to Wakanda which would center on Lisa’s experiences as an outsider adjusting to life in the African kingdom.

    This is by far the best post for the thread. I like this in-depth look into the universe.

    A photo of the Kee Bird, an Air Force Boeing B-29 Superfortress that after the end of WWII made several expeditions to search for the frozen body of Steve Rogers. The last of these expeditions in February 1947 ended with the plane crash-landing in Greenland after it had run out of fuel.

    A cutaway of the ‘Oyster-scape’. Originally proposed in 2009 as a means of protecting the city from rising sea-levels, diversifying sea life in the area, and increasing recreational activity. The project was later made a reality thanks to funding from Stark Industries, which was pursuing various eco-friendly efforts at the behest of it’s CEO Tony Stark. Construction on the site was delayed due to recovery efforts from the Battle of New York diverting resources. The Oyster-Scape was eventually completed and opened in March 2015. The site was later devastated in April 2018 when ‘The Snap’ wiped out half of the marine life inhabiting it.

    Your thoughts on how the Decimation, in my opinion, was similar to putting gasoline on an already burning fire when it came to areas lf the world not particularly known for stability?

    I think you're spot on. The randomness of the Decimation's victim pool would definitely cause chaos and strife in already unstable areas of the world.

    After the disappearance of the vigilante known as Ronin in 2023, a bizarre movement of vigilantes from the world's poorest regions (or those within the stranglehold of crime) took up the mantle of Ronin and began their own war against crime. Unlike the legitimate Ronin, these pretenders were not above putting civilians at risk.

    A Mexican drug cartel's hopes of safety in the light of Ronin's disapperance were dashed when several of their lieutenants disappeared. Their heads were found not far from a Federal Police headquarters in Juarez. A pair of bloodied samurai swords were found nearby.

    Japanese police clear a train carriage of a unidentified toxin which was used to assassinate a Yakuza leader, his family and his lieutenants. Several bystanders were killed in the attack. The toxin canisters reportedly had "For Ronin", written on them in kanji.

    In Nairobi, several members of a notorious criminal gang were gunned down in broad daylight by someone who, according to eyewitnesses, proclaimed "We are Ronin!"
