What ‘Black Panther’s’ Wakanda can teach us about Africa’s history — and its future
What if African countries had never been conquered and subjected to colonial rule? What if the global slave trade had never stolen 18 million Africans for export to other regions? Africa might look very much like the fictional country of Wakanda, brilliantly brought to life in the new “Black Panther” movie.

Facetta Nera (on Wikipedia)
Faccetta nera è una canzone scritta da Renato Micheli e musicata da Mario Ruccione nell'aprile 1935[1]. Essa è stata composta in occasione della grande diffusione di notizie da parte della propaganda fascista relative all'Etiopia, e in particolare della schiavitù là ancora vigente, su parte della popolazione abissina. Tali notizie servirono in parte a giustificare l'intervento militare che oltre a procurare all'Italia un "posto al sole", doveva porre fine alla condizione così degradata della popolazione.

R. M. Ballantyne - Wikipedia
The Coral Island is the most popular of Ballantyne's novels still read and remembered today,[6] but because of one mistake he made in that book, in which he gave an incorrect thickness of coconut shells, he subsequently attempted to gain first-hand knowledge of his subject matter. For instance, he spent some time living with the lighthouse keepers at the Bell Rock before writing The Lighthouse, and while researching for Deep Down he spent time with the tin miners of Cornwall.[1]

Empires Spanning Time & Space 'Verse by DictionaryWrites (Thor - Marvel Movie 'Verse / Doctor Who - 10th)
Loki's attempt to murder Laufey has failed; Odin has awoken from the Allsleep; Thor despises his brother not-in-blood. Loki, with all this facing him, decides it is time to leave Asgard once and for all. Returning to Midgard, a realm he knew as he was yet a young man, he works to build something entirely new for himself.

A plot-based crossover between Doctor Who & Marvel: Loki and the Tenth Doctor will form a complex relationship, as will Loki and Tony Stark. This is a pretty huge AU, with influences from the MCU, the 616 and the Norse mythology behind Loki.
