Ronny Chieng Tweets Feedback
Chieng suggests the workshop alter the beginning of Shang-Chi’s name (上氣) that is currently utilized in Master of Kung Fu’s comic books. Chieng is familiar with the Chinese language. Moreover, Chieng provided his very own suggestion for an alternative.
” Hey [Marvel Studios], a humble suggestion. Please do not refer to Shang-Chi as ‘Rising Spirit.’ (上氣) It is currently composed in the comics because 上氣 isn’t what you assume it indicates,” the actor wrote. “It checks out as “Upper air” – not an unusual superhero name. Instead, I recommend calling him 神奇 (Shen Qi).”.
Hey @MarvelStudios a humble suggestion: please don't refer to Shang-Chi as "Rising Spirit" (上氣) as is currently written in the comics because 上氣 isn't what you think it means. It reads as "Upper air" – not a great superhero name. Instead I suggest calling him 神奇 (Shen Qi)

Suggestion for Shang-Chi Name Change
” [Shen Qi] means “Miraculous.” It also keeps approximately the same English variation name of the character. However, it is likewise a far better superhero name,” Chieng proceeded.
He included, “Also the Shen 神 in Shen Qi 神 essentially indicates God, and in context implies ‘God-like,’ which further adds to the very hero aura of this name.”.
Chieng ended the thread by clarifying as well as summing up the information of his recommendation. “Just to make clear, I assume you can escape still calling him ‘Shang-Chi’ in English. However, make the Chinese beginning of his name 神奇 (Shen Qi) ‘Miraculous’ instead of ‘Rising Spirit.'”.
