Achebe's real identity is unknown. Some people say he was a farmer who was attacked; stabbed several times and some men burned his farm down, then took his wife. While this has not been entirely confirmed, it has been confirmed that he sold his soul to Mephisto. He is from Ghudaza; which is right next to Wakanda, where the Black Panther is king. The Black Panther and Achebe would soon become enemies. Black Panther forced Mephisto to let go of Achebe. Achebe then took Black Panther's fiancée and turned her into a giant bomb. Black Panther did save his fiancée and returned to Wakanda. Achebe went into hiding.
Later he was seen hiring Deadpool to kill the man who exposed T'Challa as the Black Panther.
