Shang-Chi, the Master of Kung Fu, debuted in 1973's Special Marvel Edition No 15, created by Steve Englehart and Thanos creator Jim Starlin after an attempt to acquire the comic book rights to the television series "Kung Fu" fell through.
The character was a massive success through the 1970s, and was recently revived as a member of the Avengers during 2012's Marvel Now! Publishing event.
Shang-Chi has also made guest appearances in other titles such as "Marvel Team-Up", "Marvel Knights" and "X-Men".
