In The Shadow Hero, cartoonist Gene Luen Yang collaborates with artist Sonny Liew to tell the story of Hank Chu, the teenage son of Chinese immigrants who run a small store in Depression-era Chinatown. Here, Hank finds himself pressured by his mother to become a wholly American invention, a sort of ultimate assimilation success story. Their book is an excellent one, a perfect example of a modern superhero comic, masterfully and perfectly balancing comedy, crime, action, drama, melodrama, romance and fantasy into an epic story of a young man coming of age and finding himself. The character wore the costume that The Green Turtle wears on the cover of The Shadow Hero, he defended China from the invading forces of Axis Power Japan, he had unnaturally bright pink skin, and he almost never directly faced the reader. What did face the reader was a strange, mirthful, cartoon turtle-shaped shadow that was never commented on or explained. Yang then dives into the rumors, which seem to be borne out by what’s on the page of the Green Turtle comics — or, at the very least, a compelling argument can be made based on the evidence of the comics themselves, the first of which is included in Shadow Hero. Apparently Hing wanted The Green Turtle to be Chinese, which would have made him one of the first Asian superheroes, quite a feat during a time when Asians in U.S. Their  book isn’t named for the hero, who tries out the names Golden Man of Bravery and Jade Tortoise before becoming The Green Turtle, but its title instead refers to the origin of his powers and that weird smiling turtle shadow his creator drew into the comics.

The Tortoise decides to leave, making his home in the shadow of Hanks’ father, striking a bargain to do so. Soon, Hank becomes embroiled in the crime conflict that has engulfed Chinatown, claimed the life of his father, and involves a young woman he met and fell in love with.
While Yang constructs a marvelously satisfying superhero narrative, one beautifully drawn by Liew, whose style and deft skill easily accommodates the various facets of the story, it’s interesting to hit that back-matter and see to what degree the creators seem to be solving a puzzle.
Why did he seem to have an uncanny ability to avoid being shot when fighting opponents with guns? Whatever the real story of the creation of the until-now forgotten Golden Age hero of a few issues of Blazing Comics, Yang and Liew have imagined as great and as enormously entertaining a story as any superhero could hope to have. No English subtitles on this one, but you can still get a solid idea of what the movie adaptation of Kerstin Geir’s Ruby Red will look like.
Book Jacket: A missing diamond, a mysterious neighbor, a link to Shakespeare – can Hero uncover the connections? The back of the Secret Invasion box shows the figures in a little bit more detail as well as the other two  sets in this series.

As with much of Yang’s best-known work, this new original graphic novel deals with themes of cultural, national and racial identity, and the tensions and conflicts that arise when identities and outlooks collide.
That story is told after the conclusion of The Shadow Hero, in the generous back-matter of the First Second book, presented in standard superhero-comic size, rather than the smaller, more square shape of most of the publisher’s offerings. Under facts, we learn the superhero that stars in the tale we just finished reading — The Green Turtle — was a real superhero created in 1944 by Chinese-American artist Chu Hing for publisher Rural House’s Blazing Comics. When his face was turned toward the reader, it was always at least semi-obscured by something, even if just the hero’s arm.
It appeared to be an artistic flourish, akin to the dramatic shadows cast by Batman and, later, Spider-Man, but it didn’t look much like The Green Turtle and, Yang writes, it seemed to be laughing at the reader or, perhaps, the publisher.
In sharp contrast to the other Asian characters in his stories, the hero looked like a sun-burned Caucasian. That, and to the various mysterious elements regarding the character’s creation and forgotten place in comics history.

Decades later, Hank’s mom meets The Anchor of Justice, and begins pestering him to give up his dreams of being a cowardly grocer like his father and instead become a superhero.
He meets The Tortoise, and strikes a bargain with him, allowing it to live in his shadow in exchange for the wish that he never be shot, giving The Green Turtle the useful power of being unshootable.
In a sense, large parts of the book come from their reverse-engineering a superhero from what they see on the relatively few pages of Green Turtle comics. The four main characters are all there; Captain America, Iron Man, Hulk and Thor are all present in Super Hero Squad form.

She tries to help him along by sewing him his Golden Man of Bravery costume, having him train in the martial arts and pushing him into spilled chemicals or to be bitten by animals in an attempt to gain superpowers. Oddly enough Iron Man has articulation in at his head, shoulders and waist, but pretty much he can only do the pounding the pavement pose. Nick does not have any articulation aside from his wrists which is pretty weird because the only thing you can really do is slightly re-angle the direction of the gun.
Ironically, I would not mind having a few duplicates of this figure to start a little Skrull army. Maybe because some of the figures used have been repaints from comic book based series in years past. However he does look pretty cool just standing there.So the Secret Invasion is not that secret anymore! This "Secret Invasion” contains a new Nick Fury and has a Skrull Warrior and Iron Man that we have seen before, albeit these have new paint apps.
The Skrull is on the loose and unless he's directly underneath Iron Man or the left or right of Nick Fury he can pretty much do whatever hescrollbars=yes wants. It's a nice set to pick up if nothing more than getting your hands on the smiling Skrull and the new Avengers movie Nick Fury.
