Shang-Chi is a likable enough hero. And the dynamic between him and his father adds to what would otherwise be an unremarkable story. 6/10

  Great use of Fu Manchu lore.

  This was ok. I found I connected with Iron Fist more so far.

  Average. I am sad for Shang-Chi. I keep hoping he will find some partners, but I feel his path will be a lonely one.

  Since I was a wee baby, I have wondered what it would be like if Bruce Lee was in the Rocky Horror Picture Show, so thanks for that Marvel. (Redsvetz knows what I'm saying)
Also love Shang-Chi's reaction in the explosion panel. Kind of an "I really should have seen that coming" kind of pose.

  So, Fu Manchu kills an entire building-full of people just to screw with Shang-Chi? That's probably the biggest d*ck-move ever done in the Order up to this point, and with the likes Professor X and Hank Pym, that's already a high bar to clear. I'm not sure if that raises or lowers the esteem of Shang-Chi so far, and I'm trying to like this series.

2 stars, but could've been a 3, if there was more of a point to this story.

  So if anyone wasn't sure, Fu Manchu is not a nice person. Just so we're clear.
