    They said his scars are homage to his tribe but he’s T’Challa’s cousin so are they not from the same tribe? Shouldn’t T’Challa have tribal scars as well

    Many people are commenting about how Killmonger's scars represent his kill count and how the uploader of this video is wrong. Please keep in mind that he made the video *before* the movie hit theaters lol. You don't have to throw it in his face over and over when all he did was present a theory.

    1:40 those are images of a Papua New Guinean tribe nick named the 'Crocodile Tribe'. The scarification is a Rite of Passage into manhood, and is made to imitate the scales and spikes of crocodiles, as the crocodile is of spiritual significance (hence the nick name of their tribe).

    you said you were going to explain his scarification all you said was that oh certain tribes in Africa have scarification will certain tribes in America have scarification to that then explained the particular nuances of his why did Marvel Cinemas decide to give Erik killmonger who was born and raised in America scarification. and for that matter while it does going with the story why is he suddenly the Black Panthers cousin as opposed to being a wakanda who is kidnapped by claw. he became the leader of nadaka Village and here's another one why did Marvel movies I don't know what their proper name is the side instead of the 18 tribes of wakanda to just have five. and instead of naming them they call them the Border tribe the River tribe and what about T Challa other brother Hunter also known as the white wolf. or his brother who became a mutate. I hate when writers that don't know the story change the previous story that's like well Martin Luther King getting shot wasn't good enough so now we're going to make him the president and he was our 38th president at least he was because we decide to write it that way. I hate when New Riders failed to respect the already existing story it pisses me off when they can't keep continuity

    The dot-like scars represent the many people Eric Killmonger has killed, he explained it when Klave asked how Eric is supposed to fit in / blend in when he plans to go to Wakanda (Pulls back his sleeve to show the dot-like scars in his arm to Klave ).

    kill monger's Origin is very impressing but people saying that he's low key evil and a villain if you didnt watch his origin then no one shouldn't call him evil cause he's trying to set an example of the revenge of his parents death and blames T'Challa , the comic book is pretty good should check it out everyone ^_^
