Because of his father's injuries during challenge day, M'Demwe would blame T'Chaka for his percived family disgrace. While watching balefully as his hateful liege dispatched Wakandan traitors who stole or either attempted to steal Vibranium from their homeland.
He secretly worked with the Nazi WWII criminal Baron Wolfgang von Strucker in a joint attempt to corral the nation for themselves. Having formed secret ties to the global criminal cartel of HYDRA as one of its agents.When initial invasion attempts had failed. M'Demwe was given new orders to disrupt secret transactions between the good king and S.H.I.E.L.D.

M'Demwe would again strike a bargain with another outsider named Ulysses Klaww, whom sought to turn a profit from the scientist felons plunder of the sacred vibranium mound of their nation.
