Wonder Woman Villains - Egg Fu
Happy Easter, everyone.
Because I derive fiendish delight from destroying your brains, this Easter I bring you...
Let me start by thanking google, which supplied me with the pre-Crisis images of Egg-Fu, and a summary of the plot. Because there's no way in hell I'd buy that comic.
Robert Kanigher made many great comics. He also wrote Wonder Woman comics.
This is one of the latter.
The plot, as it is, revolves around a somewhat unusual Chinese Communist agent named Egg-Fu. He captures Steve Trevor, turns Steve into a "living bomb" and apparently fires Steve and a rocket at the American fleet.
Kanigher called this "a tale of unbearable menace," and I agree. We apparently had some "sequels" to the pre-Crisis Egg Fu (why am I finding it hard to resist the temptation to type in a bad racist accent after reading that stuff?), but I'm not going to cover those. Egg Fu the Fifth and Doctor Yes were their names.
Post Crisis, Byrne had Donna Troy, Artemis and Wonder Girl run into something strange at a fair.
Skip ahead, they solve the mystery of Egg-Fu kidnapping people, and...
Then came 52, and Morrison revamped the character into something (somewhat) usable.
After 52, he showed up in Checkmate and Outsiders
