A battle ensues where each combatant tests each other’s strengths.
It turns out that the fight is actually a test! Black Panther explains he recruited Captain America due to a threat: “destructive heat rays from an orbiting satellite that Wakandan rockets have failed to destroy.” The two heroes take off to investigate.
