Haven't been following along with Marvel's Sword Master, the character who appeared in last year's War of Realms and whose solo series is created by the Chinese creative team of writer Shuizhu and artist Gunji?

In preparation for the release of the upcoming Sword Master Vol. 1: War of the Ancients trade paperback, Marvel Comics has created a YouTube wiki explaining the origin of the character.

"Sword Master’s quest to find his missing archeologist father while exploring the secret behind his powerful mystical sword blends treasured aspects of Chinese culture with the beloved storytelling Marvel is known for," reads Marvel's description. 

"Fans of classic Marvel super heroes will like Sword Master because there’s lots of cool action, a charming cast of characters, and the classic theme of with great power comes great responsibility,” said editor Mark Paniccia in a press released.

“We wanted to go to the best creators that China had to offer, Shuizhu and Gunji,”added Editor in Chief C.B. Cebulkski. “So they can bring authentic real stories of the country that they live in, of events they’ve experienced in their lives.”
