MIDNIGHT Brings Dark DEATH!
* 1st APPEARANCE "MIDNIGHT SUN" (M'Nai)
Shang-Chi now makes his home in Central Park. A gang tries to mug him, with predictable results. "Skillfully executed, my brother!" says M'Nai, who watched the whole thing from the shadows. Before Shang-Chi can say anything, M'Nai vanishes.
Shang-Chi remembers his history: Fu Manchu found him in an African village that the British had just raided. They were trying to stamp out a biological weapon Fu had created. The village chief was ready to kill the scarred, screaming orphan when Fu stopped him. Fu pointed out that the child did not cry; his screaming came from hatred, not fear or sorrow, and Fu could use that kind of hatred. Fu Manchu put a black hood on M'Nai and raised him alongside Shang-Chi. One day Shang-Chi wanted to look under M'Nai's mask. M'Nai refused, and they fought. Their mutual respect made them friends. Back in the present, M'Nai meets with Fu Manchu, who orders him to kill Shang-Chi...
