It was kinda sad that we had to wait this long to see an Asain superhero in Marvel Universe. Shang-Chi has some influential family connections. His father is Fu Manchu who is a criminal mastermind. As a result, he was trained since his birth in the field of Martial Arts. Considering he was always trained under his father and the number of experts his father had, Shang-Chi certainly turned his body into his strength.

Shang-Chi is also known as the Master of Kung-Fu and anyone who knows how dangerous it is to go against him. He has knowledge of all kinds of combat be it armed or unarmed. He has no “powers” such as the other Marvel characters possess but he has trained himself so hard that his body is a threat in itself. He has actually developed his own styles of combat. Shang-Chi is also well acquainted with psychotherapy and mediation. Meditation helps him to switch off his pain receptors and stop the toxins from spreading in his blood.

Danny is not only trained by a martial arts master but he also can access the Chi of the Undying Dragon of K’un-Lun. He is granted many powers and abilities thanks to this energy. This helps him focus his power in his hands which helps throw out some blows. He can also increase his stamina, speed, and even senses with the help of the Chi. He was often seen using his powers to heal himself as well as the others.

It would definitely be an intense battle and if either of them makes the slightest error, it would be game over for them then and there. Both of them are fast and quick to pick any mistake from the opposite person.

Iron Fist does have the power that grants him some superhuman abilities, but Shang-Chi too has done a lot of training to develop his abilities. Danny however relies a lot on Iron Fist and without that, he would just be a regular person. Shang-Chi on the other hand already has no superhuman powers and is the regular guy with some great skills.

Both Iron Fist and Shang Chi have gotten some major power boost but Shang-Chi has also grown with experience and intelligence. And no matter what, technique always has an upper hand. So Shang-Chi would be a clear winner.
