(Master of Kung Fu I#85-86) - As Shang-Chi and Black Jack Tarr invaded Fu Manchu's temple, they were attacked by Leopard Cultists, Thugees, Dacoits, Si-Fan, Knights Templar, and Hashishin. After confrontations with Fu Manchu and Fah Lo Suee, the two managed to escape the temple.

(Master of Kung Fu I#88) - As Fu Manchu prepared to cause World War III, he sent Si-Fan and Phansigars to oppose his traitorous daughter Fah Lo Suee, and her allies Maximillian Zaran, Shang-Chi, Black Jack Tarr, Sir Denis Nayland Smith, Clive Reston and Leiko Wu. One of the Si-Fan stabbed Fah Lo Suee, but they were all defeated in the end.
