Major Spoilers Poll of the Week
Comics and video games seem to go hand in hand, and this week, we not only get a dose of cool comics, the news from E3 now has two new gaming systems headed our way.?
Shang-Chi is a Marvel Comics character, often called the “Master of Kung Fu”. He was created by writer Steve Englehart and artist Jim Starlin.
He has no special superpowers, but he exhibits extraordinary skills in the martial arts and is a master of Wushu (the actual Mandarin name for the various Chinese fighting arts) both empty handed and with weapons, including the staff, nunchaku and double-edged sword.
