Over the course of award-winning writer Gene Luen Yang and rising star artist Dike Ruan’s redefining work on SHANG-CHI, the iconic martial arts hero has taken over leadership of his evil father’s cult-like organization known as the Five Weapons Society. In the process, Shang-Chi has reconnected with his many siblings, and in this month’s SHANG-CHI #3, he’ll discover yet another sister, a mutant warrior named Zhilan! Gifted with the ability to transform music into solidified energy, Zhilan is a formidable fighter who was banished from the Five Weapons Society by Shang-Chi’s father long ago. But why was she exiled? And should Shang-Chi invite her back?
To make matters more complicated, Shang-Chi won’t be the only one looking for Zhilan. Sent by Krakoa to protect a fellow mutant, Wolverine will face off with Shang-Chi in an intense matchup between two of Marvel’s most legendary fighters. Having already gone head-to-head with the likes of Spider-Man and Captain America, this is the latest in Shang-Chi’s series of clashes with the heroes of the Marvel Universe, and they are beginning to question if he can truly change the Five Weapons Society’s evil ways….
