Legend of Shang-Chi, a brand new Shang-Chi one-shot from Marvel Comics, is on the way in which! Author Alyssa Wong and artist Andie Tong have teamed up for the journey, which sees the superhero Shang-Chi and Leiko Wu be part of forces to discover a sword that devours individuals’s souls. To maintain the weapon from falling into the unsuitable arms, they’ll need to steal it, however they’ve competitors: Woman Deathstrike.
I’m stoked to jot down Shang-Chi! My first introduction to the character was in Conflict of the Realms: New Brokers of Atlas, written by Greg Pak and drawn by Gang Hyuk Lim. I feel Shang-Chi’s tremendous attention-grabbing: he’s a man who goes toe-to-toe with superpowered metahumans every single day, and his particular skill is that he’s actually, actually good at martial arts. That’s it. However that’s all he wants; he’s quick, acrobatic, and actually the perfect at what he does. I really feel like Shang-Chi radiates Good Older Brother power. He’ll defend you AND purchase you snacks afterward. What else do you actually need?
For this journey, I needed to pit Shang-Chi in opposition to a villain with an equally agile, bodily preventing model. Woman Deathstrike appeared like a pure selection. She’s received adamantium claws and an iron will. Up to now, she’s confronted off in opposition to Wolverine (many instances!) and even been a reluctant hero. She’s loads of enjoyable. Woman Deathstrike is somebody who can maintain her personal in opposition to Shang-Chi; if he needs to beat her, he’ll need to get inventive.
