    Is Marvel poking fun at itself?

    Great issue the art is getting better and better. The art in the issue reminded me of larraz quite a bit. I also think the sister mutant power is and interesting one. Would love to see her and Dazzler team up.

    Great trailer. Yeah, I've heard a lot of people saying Marvel tricked them by delivering a third Shang-Chi trailer instead of a Spider-Man: No Way Home trailer. But I like what I'm seeing. That "I'm not afraid of you" line, that's a very powerful line. Furthermore, we saw some superhero landing poses from Shang. Very cool. My only hope is that the Mandarin isn't done after this film. Really hope we get to see him around and become a big bad in the MCU. September 3rd comes out, we'll see.

    Indeed it did. Apologies for not giving commentary on it sooner. Overall, it was a really great issue. What stood out to me is how Shang is this steady source in the book. There are tons of conflicts around him. Wolverine wants to bring Zhilan to Karakoa. Esme and Takeshi want to kill Zhilan because she's a mutant and Shang's father saw mutants as a threat. That was a very fascinating revelation really. We're learning about Zheng Zu and how calculating and mutant-phobic he was and how that influences his children. Zheng Zu has shown prejudice and it has spread to his kids. That theme is very relevant. Replace "mutant-phobic" with homophobic or racist and you'd be shedding a hard truth on many older Asians and Asian-American parents today.

    Thus, Shang-Chi stood out brilliantly in this issue. He fights Wolverine. He checks Esme and Takeshi. He stands up for reforming his father's organization and casting out old, prejudiced ideas. He wants to do that with a long-lost sister. And what makes him think that he can do this? Just with determination. And his deadly hands of Kung Fu. Badass.

    Another excellent issue. Looking forward to the next!

    Why exactly did people expect a NWH trailer in the first place.

    I don't see Mandarin being a 'Big bad' but it would be cool to see him stick around

    Yeah, just hoping he has a role to play. Don't want him off'd in this film, especially if the performance is good.

    D'oh. Read your spoiler here. Didn't check out the leaked image. Trying to avoid that. But if true, it makes sense. I'd love to see that.

    They're a hopeless lot who spam every Marvel video with "Where's the Spider-Man NWH trailer". I just blissfully ignore them.

    He looks pretty good from the trailer. I hope he's not a one time foe. Maybe he can show up in an agents of Atlas project

    Thanks, any idea how long this "Shang-Chi get in conflicts with other heroes" stuff is going to continue? I preferred the previous mini way more to this.

    It’s a profile raising grand tour to both raise his profile with readers of more high profile IPs, generate content for his family interactions for future use and effectively soft reboot interactions between his family and the MU as a whole, since I’d guess that… poor aging and the obvious one aside, there’s probably more than a few elements of his mythos that might run into IP issues of adapted to games/cartoons etc

    As for any possible links spoilers:
    I had been holding out Mandarin would have Trevor MC’ing that apparent tournament

    New Marvel featurette on Shang:



    We see the expansion of more scenes, from fights to dramatic moments. Great to hear from Simu, Daniel Cretton, Akwafina, and Kevin Feige!
