Review: Marvel’s Voices: Identity #1

Marvel Voices: Identity

The impact of Shang Chi and the Ten Rings cannot be understated. The fact that Marvel took a big swing by giving a movie to a character with no prior introduction, was risky. AS the fan base, other than the actual comic book readers, know who he was. The movie met the moment in this time and place.

 As with what happened when Black Panther was released, suddenly fans that never saw themselves were finally …seen. The movie much like the iconic Chadwick Boseman starrer,  also had a nuanced flawed and complicated villain , in Tony Leung’s Mandarin As the world waits for the Ms. Marvel TV show, the visibility of  AAPIs have never been as apparent . In what seems to be Marvel’s annual one shots showing diversity, we get Marvel’s Voices: Identity, showcasing some of the Marvel Universe’s mightiest Asian heroes.

In “ Secrets”, we find Jimmy Woo and Shang Chi, as prey in a  a challenge much akin to Saw coordinated by Crossfire, which finds them saying hard truths to each other, only to become closer for it.  In “ Fool Me Twice”,  Ms. Marvel meets a former love interest /fellow Inhuman/foe, who attempts to use her feelings about him against her but thankfully Shang Chi , shows up , to open her eyes. In “The Primeval Paradox”, Groot and Mantis take a trip to her home planet,   but instead elicits memories of her family who been long gone. In the last story, “While You Were Out”, Wong fights off a creature trying to enter the Sanctum Sanctorum.

Overall, Marvel Voices: Identity is an excellent collection of stories which offers the right bit of nuance, and just how super we all are. The stories by the different creators are immersive. The art by the different creators are beautiful. Altogether, an excellent  one shot that, I hope will continue for many years.
