    Just a mild thought about your complaint. I mostly agree with you.
    I understand why Marvel brought Killmonger back in the comics, but, like the death of the Green Goblin, he wasn't meant to come back from the Panther's Rage story, so I'm completely OK with his death in the movie. They took one of the best Marvel stories of the 70's and did a great job adapting it. Keeping him around would cheapen the story but I do understand that a long-term story might benefit from Killmonger's re-appearance.
    I think my major complaint with the movie would be with the usage of vibramium as a solution for everything.

Just like Obadiah Stane in Iron Man 1, Ra's Al Ghul in Batman Begins, Two-Face in Dark Knight or Bane & Talia in Dark Knight Rises, I think that it is logical that Killmonger dies at the conclusion of Black Panther.

The structure of the story is the same : the villain is the evil reflection of the hero and the hero defeats his evil twin by killing/destroying him/her (it is simple symbolism but it works).

On the contrary, Klaw could have become a recurring thuggish villain :
Scarecrow appeared in the 3 movies of the Dark Knight Trilogy and both the Vulture & the Shocker/Herman Schultz are still alive at the ending of Spider-Man Homecoming.

Also, we never had the opportunity to see Klaw turn into his iconic "living sound" body.

I understand that Klaw had to be only a 2ndary antagonist.

Killmonger is more interesting as the 1st antagonist, and contrary to comics, MCU Klaw isn't the killer of T'Chaka.

Still, I don't think that it was such a good idea to waste Klaw before he even turns into living sound. He could have appeared into multiple MCU movies, like comics Klaw appears in a lot of books (Daredevil, Fantastic Four, Avengers, etc.).

It is no big deal. It is only a minor complaint. Otherwhile, I think that the movie is really great.

In my opinion, since Klaw is dead, I think that he will replaced by Moses Magnum in one of the next Black Panther movies.

Instead of Klaw, N'Kano, Shara, Jakarra or Baru, Moses Magnum would be superpowered by exposure to Vibranium.


(In the comic, even if it is unconfirmed, it is not impossible that Apocalypse might have used Vibranium to mutate Moses Magnum ...)
