Chen Hsu

Search for 'Chen Hsu' on Amazon

He first appeared in Iron Man #260, a withered old shopkeeper in San Francisco’s Chinatown, who was later revealed to be a great and powerful magician—but he was much more. A mysterious old soul, he led the Mandarin to discover his true power—and the true power and secret of the ten rings.

Dressed like a golf caddy, and floating in mid-air, the wise master led the Mandarin back to China, to the Valley of the Sleeping Dragon. There he taught the Mandarin to accept his destiny, to embrace a more mystical path. He also introduced Mandy to Fin Fang Foom, a mighty dragon he had subdued long ago—a dragon who could now be used to conquer China.

In reality, the inscrutable teacher was a dragon himself, a voyager from the planet Kakaranathara. Chen Hsu was the captain of a band of violent adventurers whose spaceship crashed on Earth. These dragons soon took on human form, and then patiently waited 3,000 years to rule the planet. Their plan was foiled by Iron Man and the Mandarin, and the dragons disappeared in a massive blast.

In 2006, Chen Hsu returned in Marvel Team-Up #7 to craft a power ring from the shard of a cosmic cube.
