Who is Shang-Chi?
For those who haven’t been properly acquainted, meet Shang-Chi “the rising and advancing of the spirit”.
A Kung-Fu master with top-level fighting skills. His main goal is to keep peace and harmony in the Marvel Universe and will obliterate anyone who comes in between that with his skills.
As a young boy, he was raised by his father, a powerful criminal. His father intended for Shang-Chi to be the heir to his evil secret society. Therefore, Shang-Chi was hidden away in an ancient fortress in China throughout his childhood and trained in a plethora of martial arts and philosophical disciplines.
Shang-Chi was completely unaware that his father was breeding him to be an evil-fighting machine until young adulthood when he was chosen by the secret society to assassinate an enemy of his father’s.
During this mission, he meets a secret British agent named Smith. He is told of the illegal secret activities of his father’s secret society and realizes he has been fighting for the wrong team.
Since that day Shang-Chi’s mission is to declare war against his father and fight against his secret society’s evil doings. Thus, Shang-Chi was reborn.
