Shang-Chi returns home from his disillusioning mission in Hong Kong and quits the British Secret Service. However, Black Jack appears at his flat and appeals for his return because someone has infiltrated the Service and is kidnapping agents.
Leiko leaves the country on a mission (after Shang-Chi says he does not love her)…
…but she leaves word for Tarr and Shang-Chi to re-activate an old agent , Larner, who was let go and who is now a guilt-ridden drunk due to failures in past missions. Reston shows up as well, and then mysterious agents attack them all.
After fighting them off, Shang-Chi finds a ‘clue’ that is an obvious trap but Tarr and Shang-Chi decide to spring it anyway.
“Daughters of the Death-Goddess” / LE FIGLIE DELLA MORTE !
- Cult of Kara-Kai
- The Living Goddesses (First appearance)
As Batroc angrily leaves the Meachum building over a dispute about his payment in his battle against Iron Fist, Ward Meachum vows to help Joy kill Iron Fist (however, he knows that Fist is not the killer of her father, and is perusing his own ends in trying to kill Iron Fist.) Meanwhile Danny returns back to the Wing residence to find the place torn up and a number of Cult of Kara-Kai members beaten up, he is suddenly attacked by Colleen’s friend Misty Knight who believes that Iron Fist is one of the cultists. Unable to talk sense into her, Iron Fist is forced to knock her unconscious instead. Danny is then led to the Temple of Kali by the Ninja’s astral form, where he finds that Colleen and her father Lee have been taken hostage by the cults leaders the Living Goddesses: Ushas and Shaya.
Iron Fist is forced to fight the Goddesses and their followers to free Colleen, her father and regain the book of Kali as well. During the fight, Iron Fist frees his friends and in the heat of the battle Lee turns into the Ninja once more to try and reclaim the book. However, in attempting to do so he kills the man holding it, who drops it into the flames of a torch, incinerating it.
When the book is destroyed the Ninja and Lee Wing separate, and the Ninja reveals that he was trapped inside it by the Dragon Kings of K’un-Lun. Deciding to get revenge, the Ninja then attacks Iron Fist, hoping to kill K’un-Lun’s one true hope.
