Son of the criminal mastermind, Fu Manchu, Shang-Chi was trained in the ancient art of Kung Fu at an early age. By the age of nineteen, Shang-Chi had already become the greatest living master of Kung Fu. Aside from that, Shang-Chi is also skilled at a variety of related mental and physical disciplines that make him an even deadlier foe. During his stint as a secret agent for MI-b, British Intelligence Agnency, Shang-Chi refined his hand to hand combat styles by defeating anyone in his path. Although he has no superhuman powers, Shang-Chi has successfully battled superhuman enemies and those armed with highly sophisticated weaponry.
