Wauconda forever? 'Black Panther' fan tease small Illinois villa…

WAUCONDA, IL. — Residents of a small village in Illinois have something in common with Marvel’s Black Panther: Wauconda sounds a lot like the mythical, prosperous city of Wakanda.

The spelling is different, but the pronunciation is identical.

In the movie, Wakanda is home to Black Panther, a superhero whose real name is T’challa, and community of black people thriving among wealth hidden in Africa.
