1. Black Panther

Witnessing T'Challa's coronation, she joins him in tracking down Ulysses Klaue. After Erik Killmonger overthrew T'Challa, Okoye found herself conflicted between her friendship with T'Challa, or her duty to her new king, Erik Killmonger. T'Challa soon returned and Okoye soon joined him in the fight against Killmonger and successfully taking back the throne.

2. Avengers: Infinity War

When Thanos and his forces arrived on Earth to forcefully take the Mind Stone from Vision, Okoye soon was forced to defend Wakanda alongside her king and the Avengers.

Although they succeeded in killing Thanos's forces, when Thanos himself came on Wakanda, Okoye and the other heroes were completely overpowered and unable to stop him from completing the Infinity Gauntlet, though Okoye remained one of the survivors.

3. Avengers: Endgame

In the wake of the Snap, she joined the Avengers, serving under the command of Natasha Romanoff whilst simultaneously leading the Dora Milaje in Wakanda. After the Blip in 2023, which resurrected all the lives claimed by Thanos' snap, she joined T'Challa and the Wakandans to provide aid for the Avengers during the Battle of Earth, mortally wounding Corvus Glaive.

Following the aftermath of the battle, with the Avengers now defunct, she returned to Wakanda and resumed serving T'Challa.
