In the movie, we find

Killmonger orders the elders to burn the rest of the Heart Shaped Herbs so that no one else can become a Black Panther.

How will they be able to regrow the Heart Shaped Herb? Is there a similar arc in the comics alinging with the Black Panther Movie story line?

    Answer seems to be "We don't know" and will find out in a later film, as far as I could research, in all the mentions of the Heart shaped herb in the comics it's never been "destroyed"

1 Answer 1


There is no way to regrow the herb. This is a potential storyline of Black Panther 2, in which Shuri must become the Black Panther without the herb and use the tech instead to be the Black Panther. So no, the Herb is gone forever.

    Can you offer any evidence to back up these bold assertions?

    If Wakanda is as advanced as they seem then they should have seed banks and left a few to grow in the wild. Mar 11, 2021 at 3:35
