Marvel has unveiled a first look at Shang-Chi #3, out at the end of July, and featuring a crossover of sorts with the X-books and that tried-and-true method of boosting sales, a Wolverine guest appearance. It looks like another of Shang-Chi’s long-lost siblings has been located, but this one is a mutant! This leads, of course, to a confrontation with a certain stab-happy, two-dicked, hairy Canadian badass that’s sure to thrill Marvel fans.
In a press release, Marvel revealed more details about this new mutant.
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?
Well, it would be better than letting her go live on Krakoa. @#$%’s going down over there right now, in case you haven’t been following the Hellfire Gala. Check out the preview of Shang-Chi #3 below.
