    Marvel, I want to thank you for answering my prayer. You finally gave us an asian to REALLY make it an ALL ethnic type book!

    "Avengers will be published twice a month, and Hickman is currently planning to mix together longer five-to-six-issue story arcs with one-off stories that focus on individual characters. As for those characters, Hickman is mostly keeping mum about the lineup right now, but he revealed one teammate to whet our appetite. Kids, we’ve got six words for you: Shang-Chi, master of Kung Motherf—ing Fu."

    Seeing Shang Chi's name in the Avengers is freaking awesome!!


Asians have been very under represented in the Avengers. Last one I can remember is Mantis. And Shang Chi has always been a under used character as well who has been around for decades.

Not terribly. Given the low percentage of Asian Americans, at least they've had a few. I'd say statistically they aren't more underrepresented than most minorities in superhero comics.

I honestly liked to see Shang over in the Daredevil corner of the MU. I hate when they bring him in and have him fighting superhumans with the excuse that kung fu can allow that..
