Classification: Naturally-occurring terrestrial land mass

Creator: Nature

User/Possessors: Wakanda (and, more specifically, the Dora Milaje warriors)

First Appearance: Wakanda Forever: Avengers#1 (October, 2018)

Powers/Abilities/Functions: While nothing was unnatural about it, Ukuaji Cliff functioned as the training grounds for the Wakandan warrior women known as the Dora Milaje.

History: (Wakanda Forever: Avengers#1 (fb) - BTS) - Ukuaji Cliff in Wakanda served as the training grounds for Wakanda's Dora Milaje warriors.

(Wakanda Forever: Avengers#1 (fb)) - The young Okoye and Nakia were brought to Ukuaji Cliff as part of their Dora Milaje training and tasked with leaping from the cliff and keeping their form for a graceful landing. Okoye successfully jumped from the cliff, kept her form and landed onto the Vibranium net generated by Wakandan drummers. When Nakia was next called to the edge of Ukuaji Cliff, she admitted her nervousness and was assured she would be fine as long as she trusted in her fellow warriors. Nakia then jumped from Ukuaji Cliff but caught sight of King T'Challa on the way down and became distracted, losing her form. The Wakandan warriors quickly began drumming to generate the Vibranium net for Nakia but Nakia hit the net on her chin and bounced to the ground. Having witnessed the fall, T'Challa ran over to Nakia and summoned medics to Ukuaji Cliff.

I chose the item template for this profile, as the location template was more for an entire nation or country and Ukuaji Cliff is a naturally occurring cliff location within Wakanda. It does not have a capital city or population of its own.
