Until now the movies were based on Marvel comics, but the impact of Avengers: Infinity War was so great that it is now backwards.
Attention SPOILERS from the Marvel comic Empyre # 3 from Al Ewing, Dan Slott, Valero Schiti, Mars Grace and Joe Caramagna, where an alien invasion in Wakanda leads to a tribute to a climactic battle scene from Avengers: Infinity War of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
The intelligent plant-shaped aliens known as Cotati have begun to invade Earth, and the entire Marvel Universe is involved. The Cotati began by launching a full-scale attack on the Kree / Skrull Alliance, and have set their sights on our planet after beginning their war on the Moon. Now, all the heroes of the world are avoiding the alien invasion in every corner of the world: some Avengers are fighting in the Wild Land, the X-Men are also busy dealing with the Cotati, and even the Wild Avengers have been involved.
In Empyre # 3, the Cotati turn their attention to one of the most powerful nations in the Marvel Universe: Wakanda, home of T’Challa / Black Panther. The aliens have a plan to take the country's large Vibranium mound for their own creations. However, the Cotati find an entire army waiting for them in the fields of Wakanda. It is here that Empyre recalls the climactic battle of the film. Avengers: Infinity War.
In the film they protected Thanos' Mind Gem.
In Avengers: Infinity War, the most powerful heroes on Earth found refuge in Wakanda in order to protect Vision and his Mind Stone from Thanos and his armies. As Shuri attempted to separate the Android from the Infinity Stone embedded in his head from within the city, Captain America, Black Panther, and the rest of the Avengers joined Wakanda's armies in the fields outside the capital city.
In the comic we find Ben Grimm from the Fantastic Four alongside Shuri, Wakanda's Agents and various Avengers as Wakanda's armies prepare for battle singing “Yibambe!”, Just like the heroes of Avengers: Infinity War . Plus, energy barriers keep invaders at bay.
The similarities between Empyre and the Wakanda battle of Avengers: Infinity War don't end there either. The Cotati cross the Wakanda energy barrier just like the Outriders. And when they do, that's when the battle to protect Wakanda officially begins between the two armies. The scene in Empyre is clearly understood as a tribute to the film. From the use of the Wakandan war cry to the staging of the battle and even the Cotati's dangerous tactics.
