Synopsis
Shang-Chi is a master of martial arts and the son of Fu Manchu, a Chinese mandarin and scientist. Fu Manchu sends Shang-Chi to England in order to assassinate the evil Dr. Petrie for the common good. Shang-Chi reluctantly agrees, but after the deed is done he is confronted by Sir Denis Nayland Smith, a former British intelligence officer, who tells him the truth about Fu Manchu; that he is a nearly immortal evil mastermind. Shang-Chi travels back to his father's secret lair in New York and renounces him. Fu Manchu swears to kill Shang-Chi for his defiance.
