Synopsis: SHANG-CHI VS THOR! For several months, Shang-Chi has reintegrated himself into the Marvel Universe by bumping heads with the likes of Spider-Man, Captain America, Wolverine, the Fantastic Four, and Iron Man. And each time, he has proven to be the unstoppable force his father trained him to be. But his dad never taught him how to defeat a god…

 

The Story

Shang Chi and his family get a visit from Iron Man, Captain America and Spider-Man who demand that he hand over the cosmic cube. Unbeknown to Shang Chi his brother kept hold of the cube during the auction that they all attended a few issues back. The cube is hidden in plain sight, but not in its original form. Shang Chi tells the Avengers that he no longer has the cube and if they have lost it. Then it is their problem. Not believing him Iron Man and the others proceed to attack Shang and his people, but when it looks like the odds are against them. They call on the Thunder God Thor for help.

Seeing a potential way out of more bloodshed. Shang Chi challenges Thor to a due. His skill with the legendary ten-fist sword against the Norse god of Thunder.

 

The Artwork

Much like with the last issue. Dike Ruan knocks it out of the part with his artwork. The action beats are drawn really well. Indeed, the fight between Shang Chi and Thor is the centerpiece of this issue and absolutely stunning. There’s a real sense of visceral movement to the fight and is something that I’d love to see done in a movie or a TV show someday.

 

Overall

A really strong issue in which Shang Chi continues to try and convert his family into a more honorable way of doing things. Yet it looks like he is going to be in for some real trials in the next issue if the cliffhanger is anything to go by.
