They’re opposite sides of the same coin, really: Yin to Yang, darkness to light, aggression to serenity. Sandra Wu-San; born to poverty, raised by assassins, eventually finding her way by walking the earth, fighting and killing for the sheer thrill of it all. Shang-Chi, son of Fu Manchu; Born in splendor, a pawn in his father’s schemes of domination, until he turned away to find his own path of balance. Each is acclaimed as the greatest hand-to-hand combatant of their world (he fought the Hulk alone, she TRAINED the Batman) but with wildly different views of the world and the value of human life. However, they share a mastery of martial arts and a disdain for that which normal men call “shirts.”
