SHANG-CHI Comic Book Series Will Pit The Master Of The Martial Arts Against The Marvel Universe

SHANG-CHI Comic Book Series Will Pit The Master Of The Martial Arts Against The Marvel Universe

Marvel Comics has announced another Shang-Chi series, this time pitting the Master of the Martial Arts against his fellow heroes in the Marvel Universe! Find out what exactly you can expect after the jump.

Last year, Marvel Comics launched a new Shang-Chi series which was supposed to be released in time for Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings starring Simu Liu. That didn't happen due to COVID-19, and what was originally believed to be an ongoing title became a miniseries. Now, though, writer Gene Luen Yang and artist Dike Ruan will reunite for an actual ongoing series this May: Shang-Chi #1

However, this new series will kick off a surprising new journey for Marvel's greatest fighter as he finds himself on the opposite side of the heroes.

After the events of his latest series, Shang-Chi has finally taken his place as the leader of the Five Weapons Society, but using an evil secret organization as a force for good won’t be easy. And it’s about to get a lot harder when Shang-Chi’s fellow superheroes, from Spider-Man and the X-Men to the Avengers, start to question the Master of the Martial Arts' true motives. 

"I'm very, very thankful for all the support that we got for the Shang-Chi miniseries. I mean, the first two issues sold out," Yang says. "I'm thrilled that we get to continue the story of Shang-Chi and his siblings in the Five Weapons Society. We're going to show how Shang-Chi's brand-new role affects the rest of the Marvel Universe. We'll have him interact with old friends and new foes...and even old friends who become new foes. Dike Ruan and I are already hard at work. The stuff I've seen from Dike so far has been his best yet."

This should be a series worth keeping an eye on, and the prospect of Shang-Chi fighting the heroes pictured below has an awful lot of potential. We'll hopefully have more on this series for you soon.
