The Master of Kung Fu makes his return to the Marvel universe this month with a brand new Shang-Chi series by Eisner Award-winning writer Gene Luen Yang (American Born Chinese) and acclaimed artists Dike Ruan (Spider-Verse, Black Cat) and Philip Tan (Uncanny X-Men), and you can check out the official trailer here…
Former Avenger Shang-Chi will be forced to confront his family’s dark history when the mysterious Five Weapons Society emerges from the shadows. With the group’s leadership in question, a bloody power struggle will erupt into a full-blown war and only the deadly fists of Shang-Chi can protect the Marvel Universe from the fallout. Founded by his father, Zheng Zu, this ancient group of warriors will reveal long-hidden truths about Shang-Chi’s past and drag the hero back into a world he thought he left behind forever.
“We are keeping all of the big pieces of Shang-Chi’s backstory,” said Yan. “He’s the son of a supervillain who dreamed of taking over the world. Shang-Chi grew up in a remote area of China, separated from modern society. He eventually made his way to America and joined forces with American superheroes. We want to flesh him out by adding to his supporting cast. We’ve met some of his siblings in the past, but in this particular miniseries we’re going to meet a full set of them. Each is going to bring out a different aspect of Shang-Chi’s personality.”
Shang-Chi #1 goes on sale on September 30th.
