Who is Shang-Chi?
Shang-Chi is also known as the Master of Kung Fu and Brother Hand, and he is a superhero appearing in Marvel Comics. The comic book version of Shang-Chi first appeared in issue 15 of the Special Marvel Edition in December 1973. Shang-Chi is skilled in both unarmed and weapon combat from the wushu style of fighting. In the comics, he used the gùn, nunchaku, and jian weapons to beat up his enemies.
Jump forward to the present day, and Shang-Chi made his debut in the MCU film Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, released in 2021, where he is played by Chinese-Canadian actor Simu Liu. In the movie, he eventually obtains the Ten Rings which is some kind of mysterious legendary weapon from another dimension, but very little is known about it. The movie hit it really big at the box office and sports excellent reviews from both fans and critics alike.
