Here are the Top 10 Shang Chi Facts you Should Know Before You Watch Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings.
Shang, Ch and the Legend of the Ten Rings trailer are here and they are action-packed. There’s so much to see. I don’t know where to begin.
We thought it would be a good idea to give you a quick overview of Shang-Chi’s life and family. Also, we will tell you about Shang Chi’s origins and why he is so powerful and amazing.
We will answer some of these questions as well as more.
Let’s get to it.
Villain Of Shang Chi: FIN FANG FOOM
The list of Top 10 Shang Chi Facts includes FIN FANG FOOM at number 10. Based on a Funko merge link, we believe that FIN FANGFOOM will appear in the film as either a villain or an ally. We also have a glimpse at a dragon character known only as The Great Protector.
In comics, FIN FANG FOOM does not have strong connections to Shangchi, but the film shows him as the son-in-law of the Mandarin.
In the comics by Finn Fang Foom, the mandarin has access to all 10 rings. Later it is revealed that this is an alien plot to invade Earth.
Fin Fang Foom is a comic book character who has been both a friend and foe of the heroes throughout his life.
We just hope that he will wear his purple shorts in Shang Chi.
Shang Chi’s Coloring
His colouring is number 9 on the Top 10 Shang Chi Facts. There are many wonderful things about Shang Chi. However, there are some issues that we must acknowledge from his past.
When we discuss comic book history, one of the most problematic aspects is that it doesn’t include the history, the stuff before.
Comics have existed since the 1930s. There are many stereotypes, out-of-date, racist and stereotypical designs.
Shang Chi’s color is one of those original and historical elements of his character. This is why there were so many conflicting emotions when Shangchi was announced as one the next Marvel Heroes.
While people were excited to see Shang Chi’s representation, they were also nervous about his original appearance and some of his character. Since his 1970s debut, comics have made great strides and have eliminated Shang Chi’s yellow or golden skin color.
While we celebrate the character and the progress we have made with representation, we must also look back so we can learn from our failures and be more diligent in moving forward as we work towards equality, diversity and inclusion in comics and the MCU.
SIMU LIU is playing the role of Shang Chi
Simu Liu is number 8 in the Top 10 Shang Chi Facts. Simu Liu, a Canadian actor based in Toronto and LA, will play Shang Chi. This is great news!
Simu Liu became famous after appearing on KIM’s Convenience. In case you’re a fan and are curious, there’s actually a KIM’s CONvenience used for exterior shots.
Mimi Variety was the original name. Mimi Variety, a Convenience Store that has been in existence for over 30 years, is located downtown on Queen east. It is now officially called Kim’s Convenience. This is some pretty cool stuff.
Simu Liu is a talented actor, but he also trained in martial arts. We can see that his experience shines through in the fights we saw in the trailer.
Simu Liu is also a member of Marvel, and has been there since 2014 to discuss wanting more representation in their film franchise.
They were actually tweeted by him back in 2014: “Hey Marvel, great job with Captain America & Thor. How about an Asian American hero?
In 2019, he was truly amazed to be cast in the role Shang Chi in this film.
I cannot wait to see his performance.
Shang Chi’s brothers
His brothers are number 7 on the Top 10 Shang Chi Facts. Shang Chi has many siblings or at least half-siblings. He has four siblings and four brothers. Most of them share the same father, with one being adopted.
Moving Shadow is his half-brother and shares the same father. After Shang Chi’s departure, Moving Shadow was raised to become the heir of his father.
Their father had hoped that he would replace Shang Chi. However, Moving Shadow was actually sent by his half brother to assassinate him. But he failed and was killed by their father.
A pattern will follow this one.
Brother Staff is another half-brother. He is sent to the House of the Deadly Staff in London, England. There’s a whole story about him and his siblings who were raised similarly in the 2020 Shang Chi limited Series.
Takeshi is another of the siblings who were raised to become brother Sabre in Japan’s House of The Deadly Saber.
Finally, there’s . He’s a bit like Thanos’s Gamora and is the only one who survived an attack orchestrated and executed by Shangchi’s father. He was adopted by Shangchi and raised with him.
They became close friends, and Shang Chi left . M’Nai was also known as the Moniker Midnight’s son.
Shang Chi’s Sisters
His Sisters rank number 6 in the Top 10 Shang Chi Facts. His younger sister Hammer Zheng Xi Hao is his sister. She shares the same father and mother.
Sister Hammer was born in The House of The Deadly Hammer, Russia. She was sent away by Shang Chi who believed that she had been executed for entering their father’s secret lab.
Zenbao was introduced initially as Fa Lo Sui. He is sometimes called Cursed Lotus, and is his half-sister.
His other half-sisters Quai Far, and Brother Dagger.
Sister Dagger was sent away like Sister Hammer and raised in France in The House of The Deadly Dagger.
Shang Chi’s Father
His Father is number 5 on the Top 10 Shang Chi Facts. Shang Chi’s father in comics is Zhang Zhu (originally Dr. Fu Manchu.
Dr. Fu Manchu has a problem. He is a racist stereotype, so when Shang Chi first announced Shang Chi’s movie, there was a lot of outcry.
People were worried, but not as much about Shang Chi, who, as we discussed earlier, also has some problems. They were more concerned about his ties with Dr. Fu Manchu.
The MCU tried to reassure people that this would be an updated retelling of the story. Now the MCU version is not the sign of villain Dr. Fu Manchu.
But he is still the son a prominent Marvel villain The Real Mandarin.
We finally have a Mandarin. Shang Chi will take over his legacy.
It is possible that there could be conflict between father and child once Shang Chi has learned more about the world, and his place in it.
Shang Chi’s Mother
His Mother is number 4 on the Top 10 Shang Chi Facts List. While we know much about his father and his mother, not so much about his mother.
However, I find some of the mystery in her story fascinating. I’m curious to see if his mom will be more outspoken in the film and take an active part in the story.
In the comics, his mom is an American woman. She shares with us that she was selected over all other women to be Fu Manchu‘s Baby Mama and perhaps his Bride.
This part isn’t really clear, but she does admit that she was aware of the evils of her concert and couldn’t love him. However, it seems there was some attraction. She did it in order to make her children kings.
The unnamed mother was blessed with two children by Fu Manchu: a son Shang chi, and a daughter currently going by the alias Sister Hammer. Sister Hammer was introduced in the limited edition 2020 Shang Chi.
It will be fascinating to see how Shang Chi’s mom is integrated into the film, if she does appear at all.
However, I do believe she will. We were able to see a bit of what looked like frying in her trailer, and I believe she will be a major part.
I believe she will be different than she is in comics.
We hope she chooses a name that is meaningful to her.
Shang Chi’s first appearance
The number 3 is Shang Chi’s first appearance in the Top 10 Shang Chi Facts. Shang Chi first appeared in the special Marvel Edition Number 15 in 1973. He was presented as a master of Kung Fu, and as the son of Fu Manchu.
This is because the film will alter an aspect of the character. However, a lot of the story sounds true to what we already know about the plot.
Namely, Shang Chi wants to get out of the Empire that he’s about inherit.
This version of Shang Chi’s origin story reveals that Shangchi was a loyal, brilliant, intelligent son. His intellect was sharp and his fists quick.
His father assigned him to kill a long-standing enemy who was about to die from old age. Shang Chi refused to allow his enemy to die peacefully and sent him to London to kill them.
Although this was Shang Chi’s first trip outside of his home, he had been living in isolation for 19 years.
Shang Chi discovers the truth about his father and is shocked at how evil he truly is after he has completed this task. He has never known this truth his entire life. It contradicts everything he’s learned as a philosopher and scholar.
He decides to give up his inheritance and leave his father.
Fu Manchu agrees to his son’s request, but swears that all his Ire will be directed at assuring Shang Chi’s doom in future.
Collectors of comic books might be interested to know that the first appearance of Shang Chi as a mint condition when the film was announced was priced at 50 to $100. However, it has risen to 1000 to 4000$.
The power of MCU! This is a great first appearance! !
Shang Chi: Master of Kung Fu
The Master of Kung Fu is number two in the Top 10 Shang Chi Facts. This is not only about the series, which clearly feature Shang Chi but also his ability.
Shang Chi is a master martial artist. He has shown a great sense of control and power by channeling his Chi. He is also adept at using various weapons, can sense people spiritually even if they are hidden or psycloaked. Shang Chi is super fast, super strong, and super durable. His body and how it can be used is a matter of great discipline.
His father, who is comics creator Shang Chi, has said before that he created it, to be The Perfect Weapon. !
He is also able to limit the amount of pain he can take. He is able to control his nervous system and ignore pain when necessary. This allows him to adapt to extreme temperatures without any problems.
Shang Chi is not only insanely talented and strong, but also demonstrates the supremacy of mind over matter.
I think he must be doing some crazy breathing exercises.
He’s a great athlete, but also very wise. There are so many cool aspects to Shang Chi.
Shang Chi 2020 and Shang Chi legend
These comics are at the top of the list for Top 10 Shang Chi Facts. We’re looking for new series to watch before the film comes out.

A one-shot is available starting in 2021, and a limited series for 2020.
As I mentioned earlier, the 2020 series features some Shang Chi’s newly retconned siblings, who all seem quite cool to me.
