WAUCOUNDA, IL. (KTHV) - The spelling is different but the pronounciation is identical to the mythical, prosperous city in Marvel's Black Panther.

Home of superhero Black Panther who's real name is T'challa, the imaginary city of Wakonda is an isolationist county of wealth hidden within Africa. The spellings differ, but that hasn't stopped the citizens of Wauconda from having fun with the coincidence.

The city shared pictures to their Facebook page, showcasing people wearing Black Panther masks as a part of the fun. Everyone, from local businesses to city officials, participated.
