At least in a Marvel movie anyway. And Simu does have some stunt work experience.

Maybe the issue felt a little bit rushed, even though I still thought it was solid.

    I hear ya bro. We're getting different aspects of Shang here. I always knew he could be witty and, during his conversation with Sister Hammer, I knew that he could be cheeky. He mentions how he grew up though. That's definitely something that has to be explored. What made him mature? What made him grow up fairly well-adjusted?

    Speaking of which, I reread the issue and can somewhat sympathize with Zheng Zu. He's very devoted to his cause, to safeguarding China. I understand the lengths to which he'll go. But condone it? Not so much though.

    Still, to your point about it being quick, it was a similar problem with last issue. The dialogue gets the job done, but I feel it could be more eloquent. For instance, Shang and his sister talking at the dinner table, that could have been drawn out more. Or Zheng Zu talking with Shang, most definitely that could be more drawn out too.

    I hope it's the red and black costume.

    Thanks bro. Interesting to see who might be a part of this new wave of Shang-Chi figures. The names appeared to be changed slightly from the originals, but that's a good thing. If those are the new names for those characters, they do sound more authentically Chinese. As for Shang's costume, I'm rooting for something akin to his new design.

    As for Shang, reread issue #2 again. I'm starting to get a grasp for certain characters, like Sister Hammer and by extension Zheng Zu. There's something powerful about the relationship he has with his children. He tossed Sister Hammer to Russia for disobeying him. But she wants his approval and recognition. Shang on the other hand is the favored son of Zheng Zu. But he wants nothing to do with his father's legacy. Furthermore, seeing more of Zheng's sorcery, I'm actually interested in seeing some of his adventures.

    It's for the film so will most likely be whatever his movie look ends up being.

    Preview pages from Shang-Chi #3:





    I'm liking this. The idea that the ghostly figure from before wasn't Zheng Zu but rather Zheng Yi certainly threw me for a loop. It would be very easy for a lot of these new characters to be side characters. But it looks like they're playing an integral role here. An uncle helping a nephew, very Zuko/Iroh thing. I like this Sister Dagger being a sarcastic psycho as well. I'll reserve judgment for when the issue comes out, but sticking to the family dynamic seems a good choice here.
