About the character
The creation of Shang-Chi, which means Spiritual Ascension in Chinese, dates back to the 1970s, when Kung Fu movies and series were a fever in the North American entertainment market. Its creators were big fans of this type of material and, above all, fanatics of martial arts legend, the unique Bruce Lee. This fanaticism was directly reflected in the identity of the honorable hero, who in addition to having adventures inspired by Lee also had his face based in the multi-talented artist.
Created by Steve Englehart, owner of a very interesting Avengers scene, and Jim Starlin, the spirit behind Thanos, Shang-Chi is the son of the legendary Fu Manchu. You’ve probably heard of Fu Manchu. He comes from English literature and is the great stereotype of the Chinese gang leader.
He has ancestors of the Chinese imperial family, fascinated by mysticism and his most striking feature is the long and thin mustache. As Shang-Chi gained popularity among comic book fans, Marvel decided to purchase the rights to the Fu Manchu stories from author Sax Rohmer and incorporated certain elements of them into the hero’s mythology, making them. proper adaptations, of course, and even mixing with a few characters from the Bruce Lee films.
