Issue Review

A very clever ending, and a good use of the characters mark this one as something special. For some reason (the realistic settings?) this title always comes across as the most action-packed of contemporary Marvels. 10/10

  Another lying cover. They don't fight each other, they team up!

  I agree they need to change Shadow Stalker.

  The preview for next issue says that the series will be going in a "dynamic new direction". Of course it said that at the end of the last issue about this one, so I remain skeptical.
This issue was so pointless that it made another issue pointless retroactively. He had a chance to stop his sister. He didn't. He had a chance to stop Shadow-Stalker. He didn't. The only thing he did do was destroy those gems that his sister was using, thus making the nullifying any importance the issue where she got them. Shang himself voices the frustration I'm feeling with this series at the moment when he reacts to the news of Sir Denis being captured with "Again--?!"

  The Shadow-Stalker warns Shang Chi that the next time they meet only one of them will walk away.

Subsequently, according to the order, Shadow-Stalker is never seen again.

  No way Shang-Chi grabbed those earrings with out his sister noticing. I assume she is a master at Kung Fu to, but I'm not sure. Even if she wasn't, you would feel that. Not much of a criminal mastermind if those rubies were not fakes.

When did Shang-Chi become strong enough to crush rubies with his bare hands? This books needs some different villains. Getting tired of father son talking each other to death.

  It's a good thing Shadow-Stalker has strong neck muscles, because that crazy head-dress of his would've snapped his neck like a twig a long time ago! Or maybe we don't see him for thirty years after this due to being treated for whiplash...?

But I disagree on the issue being pointless. Shang-Chi ended his sister's immediate threat by grabbing the hypnotic rubies from her and destroying them, even if she evades capture in the process. How many times have we seen this in the Order so far? However, how the heck does a human being grind a precious stone to dust in his bare hands?

3 stars. What bold new direction? Does Shang-Chi join SHIELD next issue?
