Most Helpful Girl
I see him more as an antihero. He wasn't driven by some petty emotion, some unrelated tragedy that broke him, lashing out at random people (ok except his girlfriend and the purple flower woman which hurt me inside), believing he deserved something he had no right to etc.
He wanted to save people in an extremely radical way to right past wrongs, punish those who wronged him and his people for centuries without so much as an apology. I see him like Magneto, who I also classify as an anti hero. Oppressed tired of oppression and want to weaponize their people versus outreach healing and helping.
In the end, King T'Challa finished Killmonger's dream in a better way... which indicates to me that Killmonger was an inevitable result of a larger issue. The villain of the movie to me was colonization, lack of retribution, isolationism on Wakanda's part.
His amorality made him a trash, evil human being but exposed the flaws of the heroes and pushed them to actually be true heroes in the end
