In the comics, Shang-Chi has been a secret agent, an adventurer, and has joined teams like the Heroes for Hire and recently The Avengers. Though not superpowered, per se, Shang-Chi is unparalleled in his combat abilities, and can do things most humans cannot, through his mastery of chi. He's a character that has been rumored for the MCU for years - though most fans expected him to appear as part of the Marvel Netflix universe, as the character's martial arts background and mythos made him seem like a good spinoff of the Iron Fist TV series. With that show now canceled (at least for now), it looks like Shang-Chi will be stepping in to fill the void.
