After a failed attempt to obtain the comic-book rights to the popular Kung Fu TV series, Marvel Comics instead acquired the character Dr. Fu Manchu, the evil supervillain created by novelist Sax Rohmer in 1913 who became - through books, comics, movies and TV shows - the personification of the racist "Yellow Peril" concept that Asian races were a threat to the West. The comic was inspired by the success of Bruce Lee's Enter the Dragon, and Shang-Chi's adventures garnered a strong fan following. The character is the son of a reclusive Chinese globalist, raised and educated in his personal compound.
