A'Kane was a Wakanda
scientist and mother of Vibraxas
. A'Kane was working on a way to help Wakanda's economy by creating a new energy source by Antarctic vibranium
with Wakanda's vibranium. For a time; it was successful, and seemed to be stable and self-perpetuating. Unfortunately it eventually became unstable and exploded, killing most of the people in the complex. A'Kane was among those that died, along with Vibraxas's father.
