Being an expert in the universe of Marvel heroes is not easy, especially if you take into account the multiple sagas, diverse origins, and a multitude of fictions that have addressed the subject. If we add to this that on many occasions comics and movies are mixed around the same character, and sometimes they are parallel universes that have little to do with each other, things get even more difficult. But now that Marvel Studios releases its new movie, Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings, in theaters, we invite you to put your knowledge of this character to the test, whose story hits theaters on September 3.
Do you already know how Shang-Chi differs from paper from celluloid? Have you already caught up with his family tree? Are you still wondering where you have seen the Ten Rings before in the Marvel Cinematic Universe? Are you clear about their abilities? You will have to face these and many more questions in our test. And you may find that you know a lot more about Shang-Chi than you thought.
The film that hits theaters on September 3 revolves around this martial arts master, who tries to flee from his fate and his evil father, the Mandarin. But his plans fall apart when the past knocks on his door again when he least expects it.
This warrior will have to face his past to decide his future and to stand up to his father, who had reserved a place for him in the Olympus of evil, but without having consulted him before.
The film is an origin story about this character, born in the Marvel comics during the 70s, written and illustrated by Steve Englehart and Jim Starlin. Shang-Chi is the son of a powerful criminal from China, the leader of an international criminal organization. Raised in a compound isolated from the rest of the world, Shang-Chi was trained in martial arts and has developed unsurpassed skills. In this first adventure, our hero will face a powerful enemy: the Mandarin. Are you ready for the start of a new saga within the MCU?
