    Giant-Size Master of Kung Fu #3 Mar 1975
    "Fires of Rebirth"
    In New york, Shang-Chi is attacked by an assassin sent by his father. Defeating the assassin,
    he identifies an amulet taken from the assassin as the mark of the Phansigars, an ancient Indian sect.

    At Nayland-Smith's town house he meets Clive Reston his first appearance, and they are attacked by three Phansigars.
    During the fight, Reston lets slip several heavy hints that he is the son of James Bond and the grandson of Sherlock Holmes
    indeed facially he resembles a cross between Sean Connery and Basil Rathbone,
    although as the series progressess, he becomes more and more similar to Connery.


    They fly to London to meet with Nayland-Smith and Black Jack Tar in the British museum, where Smith reveals that Dr Petrie may be alive.

    They are attacked by a display case of Neanderthals, brought back to life by Fu Manchu's Elixair Vitae.

    It becomes clear that Fu manchu's henchmen are searching for something,
    as they raid an antique shop and Shang-Chi intervenes to stop them.

    One of the captured Phansigars tells of a plot involving Buckingham Palace,
    and following a Phansigar through a secret passage, Shang-Chi discovers Dr Petrie alive

    and his father explains that what he thought was Dr Petrie, was actualy a creation of Fu Manchu's.

    Shang-Chi must fight the Shadow Stalker to the death, but a final revelation awaits...

    Story by Doug Moench. Art by Paul Gulacy and Vinnie Colletta.

    Yes. New Super-Man took a premise that could have potentially been cringey and worked magic with it.

    I hope that this becomes a "series of mini series". hopefully they will have top notch priority artists to participate.

    I wonder if they’re going to make the Mandarin his real father, to bypass the Yellow Claw trademark issue?

    New costume kinda looks like he raided Shocker’s closet for material.

    Didn’t Brubaker already do a workaround for that in Secret Avengers?

    I think they’ll do the Mandarin route for the films but it seems a bit far fetched for the comics. Then again, the Scarlet Witch / Quicksilver retcon happened, so...

    Honestly I don’t remember. I don’t think I finished Bru’s Secret Avengers. AvX broke my budget.

    That Cheung cover is so sexy, tho, it’s one of my phone’s wallpapers.

    I love it and I agree, it’s very sexy. Gene is perfect for this, his superman was the best modern superman I’ve read in ages.

    Kind of getting a slight iron fist vibe with that sash. Interesting Easter egg?

    The series writer Yang mentioned Zheng zhu in the article so I doubt they are retconning his father. Marvel already got around the trademark issues by renaming most of the fu Manchu characters a while back. Shang chi's mom I could see being retconned.
