The origin story of Marvel's first Asian superhero Shang-Chi has been published as a webcomic on Naver, Wednesday, in time for the release of the action blockbuster "Shang-Chi and the Legend of the Ten Rings," starring Tony Leung and Simu Liu, on the same day in Korea.
Based on the Marvel Comics series of the same title released last year, the webcomic "Shang-Chi," centers on the martial arts hero as he is named the successor of the Five Weapons Society, an evil clandestine organization previously led by his father Zheng Zu. It follows his adventure as he is forced to face the past he thought he left behind, including a rocky reunion with the siblings whom he never knew he had.
The eight issues of the webcomic series will be uploaded every Wednesday and Sunday on Naver Webtoon and Naver Series.( Collapse )
