Marvel Just Fixed Shang-Chi’s Biggest MCU Plot Hole

His blockbuster film Marvel Comics’Shang-Chi brought the Marvel Cinematic Universe to life and allowed fans to see the Master of Kung-Fu on the big screen. The film was an excellent addition to the MCU. However, fans were still left feeling confused by one plot hole. Marvel Comics solved Shang-Chi’s most enormous MCU plot hole by filling in the blanks.

Shang Chi #7 is written by Gene Luen Yang, Dike Ruan, and Shang Chi is reunited with his mother. She tells him about her past and the mysteries of Ta Lo. One aspect of the otherworldly dimension is the powers that the mysterious forces offer to its inhabitants. Ta Lo residents have two abilities: the ability to psionically connect with the Qilin (a native creature to the land) and the skillset of an archer.

The MCU film ShangChi and the Legend of the Ten Rings show ShangChi and Katy Chen traveling to Ta Lo to stop ShangChi’s father, the Mandarin, from opening a demon portal and unleashing a soul-sucking demonic demon. They are welcomed by Ta Lo residents and trained with them to prepare for Mandarin’s arrival. Shang-Chi was trained in martial arts by his mother; Katy studied archery and became an expert quickly. Katy also helped take down the Dweller of Darkness, who arrived via a shot with an arrow. Katy’s image would be enough for Hawkeye to be impressed. It makes no sense that she would be capable of doing it after so little practice. Fans now know the story behind Katy’s lifesaving shot, thanks to Shang-Chi’s revelation in the comics.

Fans now know that Katy was inspired by Ta Lo’s magic, making the epic scene in the film even more enjoyable. There are no more questions about how Katy managed to shoot an arrow through the neck of a demon dragon so far away. She was able to use the magical properties of the land to guide her hand and thus save Shang-Chi.

Marvel Comics was able to fix a central plot hole in an MCU movie, proving that the comics are not just source material but also the authority of Marvel lore. Marvel Comics is always there to fill in the gaps left by films, even when they make changes to comic book characters. While movies can only hold so much lore before they run out of time, comics can take their time and detail every aspect of a character’s history. Marvel Comics closed ShangChi’s largest MCU plothole and made the movie more enjoyable.
