What Was Wakanda Like Before T'Challa Was King?

In the fifth issue of Christoper Priest's legendary Black Panther run in 1998 (art by Vince Evans), Priest abandoned the original death of T'Chaka and introduces the new retconned past. T'Chaka was now a Black Panther himself when the fight with Klaw had taken place and Wakanda had long been a rich and futuristic country...

Reginald Hudlin went even further during his run on Black Panther, but this was the major time that the history of Wakanda was changed majorly.
