    One thought on “Master of Kung Fu: Battleworld

    1. Terence

      A group of warriors threaten a drunk homeless man to the point of fighting. It turns out this man is none other thanSang-Chi, son of the Emperor. He is wanted for murder of one of the great masters.I had never heard of Sang-Chi prior to this Battleworld miniseries. I have no clue if he was presented in a congruent way to his general persona. Regardless Master of Kung Fu follows the long established martial arts tournament trope. If Sang-Chi wins the tournament then he'll be the next emperor. Mas [...]

      In the mystical and martial arts-obsessed land of K’un Lun, the Emperor of the kingdom is selected through trial by combat in the 13 Chambers which opens every 13 years. Emperor Zheng-Zu’s rule is about to be challenged in a few days as the 13 Chambers opens once more and his estranged son, Shang-Chi, steps up to prove he is the Master of Kung Fu! Master of Kung Fu is a throwback to ‘70s-era Marvel when they were publishing a lot of Kung fu comics featuring the Bruce Lee-derivative charact [...]

      How much you enjoy this book probably depends on how much of a fan of cheesy '70s Kung-fu movies you are. As I'm not, particularly, I didn't get a lot out of it.It's well, OK, I suppose. Mildly entertaining. The artwork isn't bad, so I'll give it two stars largely on the strength of the illustrations.Oh, and in case you were wondering, apart from the logo on the cover, it has virtually nothing to do with Secret Wars so, if you were thinking of reading this for the insight it gives into the bigge [...]

      This was surprisingly good to me. It really seems like all of these Secret Wars crossovers have very little to do with the Secret War series, but more like it was an excuse to tell a bunch of "Elseworlds" type alternative universe tales. Not that it's a bad thingThis series featured Shang Chi and some other characters in a Kung Fu type setting rather than their usual settings. For example, Kitty Pryde, Callisto, Caliban, Spider-Woman, Psylocke, Elektra, Iron Fist and several other characters sho [...]

      Although it's part of the Secret Wars event, this title has no connection to the events in that, uh, event. Really, this is just Marvel taking the opportunity to tell an Elseworlds-type story, incorporating a bunch of different Marvel characters into a 70s-martial-arts tale.The story itself is pretty straightforward: every 13 years the masters of the various martial arts schools compete to see who will rule K'un Lun. The fun part (for me, at least) is in identifying the various Marvel characters [...]

      This is one of the mini-series which features tales from the various sections of Secret Wars Battleworld. So that means this is basically a what-if type narrative. The story centers around the character Shang-Chi, the Master of Kung Fu, and his attempt to redeem himself and dearest his father, the tyrannical ruler of the mystical realm of K'un Lun. In the original Marvel Universe, Shang-Chi was the son of Fu Manchu, but as this is a licensed villain, the company has long since down-played that b [...]

      This is Soooo Good!I did not expect this to be so excellent. This is one of the best results of the Secret Wars stuff, in my humble opinion. :)Please MARVEL, let these people do more stuff like this!

    8. Stephen Blake

      Great story that does not rely on any previous knowledge (although it makes it more enjoyable if you recognise some of the characters). An ancient city full of kung fu masters, where trial by combat decides who rules. A drunk, disgraced, Shang Chi needs to find himself, and atone for past wrongs. Very recommended.

    9. B

      Kind of neat. It's Keanu Reeves and the X-Men (well, X-Force and Morlocks) vs. the villain from the Ninjago movie. Maybe the author could have done a better job developing the characters so it felt less like "kung fu variant covers."

    10. Trevor Dailey

      Now this is what I was expecting with a Secret Wars tie-in. A nice story set in one of the domains of Battleworld. I have never read any of the mainline Master of Kung Fu, so this was pretty much a blind read. I appreciated the Kung Fu tropes, which felt like homages, not ripoffs. The story scratched the martial arts genre itch in a satisfying manner. Even if you aren't reading any of the Battleworld books, I would encourage you to check this miniseries out, it serves as a tale.

    11. Willie Krischke

      This wasn't terrible, and it wasn't great. It just sort of was. What you've basically got is a pretty standard, competently told story about a kung fu battle in which the underdog hero fights for justice against the powerful ruler bad guy. Basically no tie-in to the rest of Secret Wars or Battle Zone, which makes the blurb at the beginning of all Battle Zone books ("The mulitverse was destroyed!") irrelevant at best and confusing at worst. This is essentially a stand alone series folded in to al [...]

      Collects Master of Kung Fu (2015) issues #1-4 and 5 Ronin issue #2This story is set during the events of "Secret Wars," however it doesn't tie into "Secret Wars" in such a way that makes it required reading for that series. With no mentions of Doom or Battleworld, this could have easily been a "What If" story set in a Kung Fu style universe. Inside these pages we see recognizable superheroes and villains, but reimagined for a Kung Fu story. Shang-Chi and Iron Fist are the two main characters, ho [...]

    13. Artemy

      That was a very cool series, one of the less talked about in Secret Wars. But, in my opinion, it was one of the better ones. This is basically your Iron Fist fix for the period of SW. And it is good at that, even though Danny Rand is featured here as a rival instead of being the main character. It is funny, it is about kung-fu and stuff, and it is very nicely drawn. So, check it out if you're into that!

    14. Gaz Watson

      I've been buying all the marvel books that're Secret Wars tie-ins, though the last couple have nothing to do with the Secret Wars! this one for instance has nothing whatsoever to do with Doom, Battleworld or anything Secret Wars. And as if that weren't bad enough, the story is tedious, waste of money.

    15. Earl

      An initial look to this 4-part series seems tasteless and out of touch in terms of the entirety of the Secret Wars stories. But reading it, I found it quite amusing, not merely with all amalgams present, but more importantly with the classic Chinese Kung-fu flick narrative.

    16. Justin

      This was a very fun alternate reality where all of the Marvel heroes are kung fu masters. Great to see Shang Chi in a series. Here's hoping for a new Master of Kung Fu ongoing series in the future.

    17. Ed

      Nominally part of Battleworld, Master of Kung Fu is really an entirely unrelated story. It's a straightforward martial arts tale with really great art. It's one of the better Secret Wars miniseries.
