A question I've been wandering for long. Stark has certainly the genius but Wakanda has vibranium. Weapons side, which one is the more advanced ?

What tech does Wakanda even have in the comics? Or is this about the movies?

I mean either way I guess it would be Stark.

Stark is the smartest person in the MCU, but save for the time machine, everything stark has invented, the Wakandans invented and mastered years before him.

Also, Stark tech hasnt really progressed that much since Iron Man 1 from a weapons standpoint. All his suits use the same weapons (missiles, beams, lazers, unibeam).

It took Iron Man 6 movies to develop any kind of Nanotech (6 movies - Iron Man 1 - 3, Avengers 1 and 2, Civil War). It took the Wakandans 2 movies (Civil War, Black Panther). It took Iron Man until Endgame to develop energy shields. The Wakandans had that in the first Black Panther movie.

@rdskns4eva: Lets see, Wakanda as a civilization is 1000s of years old vs Tony who's what 50? Stark is far more impressive.

In terms of generating a source of power, Stark denigrates Wakanda, in terms of nanotechnology, both are equal or Stark is superior and in terms of viability I do say Wakanda dwarfs Stark.

So, I do say Stark 7.5/10

Stark is more impressive, I don’t see anything more impressive then the nanotechnology suit nor the hulk buster, or in my personal opinion his best creation, the small ark reactor.

I didn't precisely said what versions for this, I've got very little knowledge of comics so I'm eager to learn so I'll say we'll split in two category :

1 - MCU

2 - Comics (any versions possibles)

From what I know from the MCU, Wakanda is so advanced thanks to the Vibranium while Stark invented pretty much all his tech from "scratch" (billions of dollars asides xD). What if Stark had Vibranium from the start ? Could he be in theory far superior to Wakanda Tech ? I'll say yes but it's just theory. And if Stark could work with Asgard Tech... oh man I can't imagine what insane creation he'll build up.

This might not be true, but I'm pretty sure T'Challa is the smartest Wakandan in their history. Any achievements performed by previous generations of Wakandans and any tech built by Wakanda before T'Challa was born would be inferior by default. With that said, Black Panther has already admitted that Tony Stark is a consummate genius. He's even conceded that he's only the 8th smartest man in the world (Stark is definitely above 8). The context of T'Challa admitting Stark is a genius makes Tony look even better since he was essentially saying that even with the combined intellect of his and Wakanda's best and brightest tacticians, scientists, and technicians, without an ample amount of time, they would not be up to the task to take him down (this was after they learned Tony betrayed them).

No Caption Provided

With all of that said, how can Wakandan tech logically be better than Stark tech if he's so high above their best and brightest?

@rdskns4eva:

Stark is more impressive.

Wakanda had a head start because they had Vibranium a metal that has amazing benefits.

Stark without those benefits matched their tech in 50 years.

The first 30 of those he wasn't even trying to be at his best.

His suits rival the Hulk and Thanos and can take meteors into them.

In comparison look at BP's suit.

And this is when they already have all of this awesome tech.

Wakanda still uses bullshit spears and melee weapons. In IW thier biggest gun was Rhodes till Thor arrived. It was pathetic how badly they were doing. If they all had guns instead it Outriders wouldn't have been a problem. Wakanda has a futuristic city and decent sheilds that's it.

They have bad offensive output and their energy sheilds are nothing impressive if they cannot eve defend better than physical ones. The ones soldiers have did nothing impressive. And the one of their perimeter was inconsistent where it cut one Outriders but didn't cut another.

Stark accomplished more than Wakanda in a thousand years in his lifetime where in the majority he wasn't trying hard. He wasn't trying hard when he was trying to figure time travel as well and yet he did it.

He even made a new element in Iron Man 2.

Wakanda should actually be ashamed how this man can match everything they've made after thousands of years of head start.

I think its a stomp in Stark's favor.

The head start is irrelevant. And its not like Tony didnt have a head start himself. He was born a genius AND he inherited a billion dollar corporation with unlimited resources AND government backing who also knew about Wakanda and vibranium.

At 15, he was building 80's level robots. Shuri at the same age mastered nanotech. Like I said, Tony is the smartest in the MCU simply because of the time travel feat. take that away and he is basically an inferior version of Shuri at 50 years old. And again, look at Tony Starks suits..its all the same shit...Lasers, Missiles, unibeam, etc. nothing groundbreaking. Dude couldnt even heal parasysis. The wakandans? Yea we can heal fatal, paraplegic gunshot wounds in 24 hours.

@rdskns4eva: How is the head start irrelevant.

You have 2 people, one lives in the normal world while the other lives in a futuristic city and yet the one living in the normal world makes far more advanced weapons than the one living in the futuristic city. Being a genius is not a head start lol. And yea he had money but then so does Wakanda. You're acting like they were dirt poor.

How is knowing about Wakanda gonna help anything? What does he gain by knowing about them? Literally nothing.

At age 15 he was making such robots WHILE the tech in his world was waaay behind.

Shuri already had all the tech there is.

She made nanobots that's true but she also had Vibranium and everything else Wakanda already had to work with.

She didn't have to work very hard for this.

Tony has a far more superior suit than what Wakanda's best warrior has.

And he has feats that say he can replicate everything Wakanda and Shuri have with their thousands of years of head start in one night.

People claim that Shuri made something advanced when young but ignore the fact that she also has far more advanced stuff already there to work with.

And the fun part is that Tony wasn't trying to do anything revolutionary till he had his awakening in the cave with Yinsen. He was just trying to have fun and make money.

When he actually started to work on this stuff he blew it out of the park.

Too bad Shuri's suits only have kick and punch. It's hilarious you are actually trying to compare these two suits. His suit can literally heal him as we saw in IW and they cn take care how hardcore wounds as we saw in AoU.

well shuri had a lot more resources than stark. So stark is more impressive compared to wakanda as he could make what they could make with less resources. It may have taken 6 movies,but iron man's nanotech id definitely better as it doesn't rip your clothes off,can make a variety of weapons,his suit can fly.

@noone1996: Old irrelevant comic. Even in Priest Run Black Panther was fighting Iron Man in his regular suit. In another after that he was fighting Doctor Doom and his robot army. He also has a Hulkbuster that's superior to Tony's.

Bottomline is, Tony is not smarter than T'Challa and a whole super advanced country. Every genius in 616 can create armor, it's not even special. Wakanda has single aircraft that can annihilate cities.

@darkthunder: Moot points, saying because they didn't discover one specific thing they are inferior is pretty dumb, plus they have a better more efficient source of energy, VIBRANIUM. Tony still doesn't have hover technology, real cloaking, kinetic manipulation, laser infused weapons, or all those instant forming nano remote driving. His cloaking in Spider-Man homecoming on that jet was just reflective panels that easily malfunctioned, meanwhile Wakanda had perfected it for sure in at least a century before if they hide in plain sight

Also Tony got his nano tech knowledge from Wakanda when they opened up lol. Also another stupid point. Tony's arc pieces is designed to stick over a special suit that he made to accommodate the nanos, Pepper pointed that out in the beggining of IW when she said he needed shirts in his closet instead of it, on top of that it's armor.

Black Panther suit is skin tight so of course it's designed to destroy present clothing like SHOES so it's as comfortable as possible.

Specializing in fancy armor suit production is seen as better than the tech of an entire futuristic advanced society that remained hidden in plain sight for decades... Okay.

Next up: Guy who made Super Soldier Serum > Wakanda

Some Pym Particles > Wakanda

Ridiculous. Wakanda's tech is almost identical to Asgards. Energy infused weapons, unbreachable energy domes, hover craft.

If TOny was so smart at 15, why didnt he invent the time machine then? The tech was there (Pym Particles) and his dad could have gotten him that resource.

Shuri already had all the tech there is.

She made nanobots that's true but she also had Vibranium and everything else Wakanda already had to work with.

She didn't have to work very hard for this.

What does this even mean "she didnt have to work very hard for this". So because she has access to vibranium, the tech makes itself? Or do you need highly intelligent poeple to work with it? Its not a magic substance. You dont just put it in a microwave and say "make me something" and it happens. If that was the case, they could have dont something more than make a shield out of it.

Tony has a far more superior suit than what Wakanda's best warrior has.

Offensively, possibly. Defensively, not even close.

And he has feats that say he can replicate everything Wakanda and Shuri have with their thousands of years of head start in one night.

Rodey got paralyzed and Tony had to come up with tech to help him walk assisted.

The CIA agent in Blackpanther to a bullet on the spine and within 24 hours was up and walking around like nothing happened. His suit appears to be able to heal stabbing wounds and what not but he hasn't show the ability to heal others (like Rodey)

Stark

It's simple writers who write some highly technological hero get to put in whatever they want and don't sustain from doing so because this or that group in the verse is supposed to be so super advanced beyond anything. So Iron Man as the most high profile solely tech based character ends up with all kinds of technology way beyond alien civilization and super science countries even as we occassionally get lipservice how they are the moat advanced thing ever. Wakanda on the other hand is ultimately based on the Black Panther stories and at its core T'Challa is not about technology. Also akin to Batman his technology usually is kept to a fairly gadgety level to keep the style of a master fighter with technological aid.

stark developed stealth tech, which can hide itself from shield, kinetic manipulation is just because vibranium can absorb vibrations or kinetic energy and wakanda doesn't have laser infused weapons. And repulsors can compete with laser weapons if they have any

, or all those instant forming nano remote driving. His cloaking in Spider-Man homecoming on that jet was just reflective panels that easily malfunctioned, meanwhile Wakanda had perfected it for sure in at least a century before if they hide in plain sight

@darkthunder: So they can build an energy shield to cover an entire city but they cant build an arc reactor. First off, based on the tech we've seen, the arc reactor would be a massive downgrade for them.

These dudes have made an energy system so efficient, that people on earth cant even detect the radiation and energy it generates. Like, how much energy is required to power Wakanda, and no one can detect any energy coming from that place at all.

Arc Reactor lol.

The dirt poor part isn't the point

Tony and his father were never like son and father.

Had he been in a good relationship with his father he'd have probably achieved more because of his father. And he'd not suddenly dream of Pym Particles and ask his dad about them.

Never said she doesnt have to work at all. Just said she doesn't have to work too hard.

LOL no. Even defensively Tony's suit can take much more.

Have T'Challa take everything Tony took in IW and EG and he'd get overloaded multiple times.

Tony had to create tech and that tech was so good Rhodey can literally fight just as well as before.

Sure, Wakanda's medicine department is better but then Wakanda pretty much has no AI.

Tony makes AI's for breakfast and his AI's are as smart as him.

Look at Ultron.

That's better than healing a damaged spine I'd say.

And it's PIS how Rhodey wasn't cured. They can regenerate Hawkeye's cells in AoU but cannot do the same for Rhodes.

@darkthunder:

Who cares if the kinetic tech is based off Vibranium? Newsflas Einstein,the entire society runs on vibranium. Tony discovered a new element because of the tesseract and he piggy backed off his dad's blue prints and formula so since you wanna try and negate Wakanda's intelligence for using vibranium to further develop tech then Stark using already pre-made model his dad based off an infinity stone is even more redundant. Arc reactor is moot. Nice try.

Wakanda does have energy infused weapons are you hard at seeing? Some of those same weapons even shoot energy beams... Don't tell me I have to pull a photo lmao

It's common sense that he got nano tech from Wakanda. They are the first to have it and they literally stated they would share some of their sciences with the rest of the world. Tony began to state that he picked it up from Wakanda before being cut off by Ebony Maw when he blasted him off.

Wakanda is Wakanda because they are naturally superior to other society's. Having access to a resource doesn't make you a genius, they figured out all those sciences on their own. Lol at saying Stark is more impressive because he's the best in ONE field of engineering compared to any other character with a name. But apparently he isn't that good given Shuri could fix Vision up better than he ever could.

And please don't be stupid enough to go "b-but Vision is made of vibraniun!" Tf does Vision being made out of a small percentage of vibranium blended into organic flesh have to do with Infinity Stones,cells, neurons, molecular integrity, Advanced CPU ,and a whole bunch of inner workings of the android?

In tems of MCU, it's Wakanda. They basically have everything Stark has in one form or another and more.

Stark tech:

  • Nanotech
  • weapons tech (missiles, bullets)
  • artificial intelligence
  • unmanned drones (suits)
  • Arc reactor (clean energy)
  • holographic recreations

Wakanda:

  • Nanotech
  • weapons tech (kinetic + energy based)
  • artificial intelligence (not explicitly stated, but Shuri seems to understand Vision's neural pathways better than Tony/Bruce)
  • unmanned aircraft/cars
  • holographic recreations (Kimoyo beads)
  • advanced defense system (dome which can tank spacecraft hitting at re-entry speed)
  • Stealth tech (Cloaking the entire country, T'Challa's aircraft)
  • Advanced medical tech that can heal a bullet to the spine in under 24 hours
  • Cryogenic freezing
  • Magnetic levitation

Fair enough

Never said she doesnt have to work at all. Just said she doesn't have to work too hard.

This still doesn't make any sense. Vibranium just provides a framework. you still need to do the work. Its like saying because I have access to steel and you only have access to copper, I dont have to work as hard to make my weapons. And we dont know how hard she has to work. You cant quantify that and it wasnt quantified in the movies.

LOL no. Even defensively Tony's suit can take much more.

Since when does Gold-titanium nano tech have better defensive qualities than Vibranium?

Have T'Challa take everything Tony took in IW and EG and he'd get overloaded multiple times.

From the kinetic charge, sure. This doesn't not affect suit durability and the ability to take damage overall.

Tony had to create tech and that tech was so good Rhodey can literally fight just as well as before.

But he couldn't walk on his own without it. That's the point. The Wakandas would find his solution rudimentary at best. Rodey basically has high tech prosthetics. remove them and he cant walk.

Sure, Wakanda's medicine department is better but then Wakanda pretty much has no AI.

Wakandas medical department is WAY better. Rodey gets spinal damage, and he cant walk without prostetics that Tony created. CIA agent gets spinal damage and he is up and walking around completely healed in 24 hours with no visibile scaring. Wakandans stomp hard.

And the Wakandans have AI. Its in the first Black Panther movie.

Tony makes AI's for breakfast and his AI's are as smart as him.

Look at Ultron.

Yes, Tony is great at making AI no doubt. Although I dont know if I'd call Ultron a great feat being as that he created an evil AI and that wasn't his intention. That was also a shared feat with Banner. Also, Shuri schooling both Banner and Stark on their implementation methods of the mind stone in vision kinda made them both look like fools.

That's better than healing a damaged spine I'd say.

I disagree

And it's PIS how Rhodey wasn't cured. They can regenerate Hawkeye's cells in AoU but cannot do the same for Rhodes.

Could be PIS, or it could be based on how much damage was caused. Looks like it cant repair spinal injuries.

And please don't be stupid enough to go "b-but Vision is made of vibraniun!" Tf does Vision being made out of a small percentage of vibranium blended into organic flesh have to do with Infinity Stones,cells, neurons, molecular integrity, Advanced CPU ,and a whole bunch of inner workings of the android?

Ok and who is Jarvis? A nobody programmed by Tony, smart guy.

What's funny?

Lmao. Um Infinity War, that huge unforgettable scene of them shooting the outriders as they squeezed through the dome and throughout the battle. You see the weapons glow too, I guess it's time for the picture huh? Sigh this is sad:

Yes genius. Those same weapons that glow, and project energy shields, and shoot lasers.... Do all the things that I mentioned now and earlier on that you apparently were unaware of. Smh. standard wakandan soldiers had energy shields decades before Tony implemented them in EG LOL

Nope blatant truth

Did the Wakandans have Hank Pym's technology to piggy back off of? Yeah, stop talking. Shuri and all the other scientists would've cracked it too had they been playing around with Hank Pym's Quantum Tech all day.

@rdskns4eva:

I think you're misunderstanding my point about Shuri's inventions.

Having a massive head start with already high end tech and a material as good as Vibranium makes it easier for her to make things.

That's pretty obvious. I never said she doesn't have to work hard at all because she clearly does.

The suit' s durability is solely impressive due to the Vibranium.

In contrast Stark's titanium gold alloy has taken much more and survived without any issues. Things that'd knock Black Panther out easily. That just makes Tony's inventions more impressive that he achieves this with an inferior metal alloy.

Actually Tony never really had any big input or time to work on Vision.

It was a hasty effort that had already been mostly completed by Ultron. The very fact that Ultron was so intelligent he just went berserk is actually impressive that Tony could code something like that. Wakanda's AI is pathetic.

Have something like Jarvis for them and he'd run Wakanda alone.

You can disagree but taking care of medical injuries like those aren't in my opinion as impressive as creating an AI that is basically much more smarter than an average person.

He creates things like its nothing. It's quite amazing.

Starks suit is better than Panthers and he wasn't on a mountain of advanced alien metal.

Let's be honest - Pym tech is best.
