First Appearance: (Literature) The Mystery of Dr. Fu-Manchu (1913);
(Marvel) Special Marvel Edition#15 (December, 1973)
Powers/Abilities: Fu Manchu is an exceptional genius in virtually every field of human knowledge, and employs hundreds of skilled engineers and biologists to assist him in developing his inventions.
Electronic marvels used (and often built) by Fu Manchu include several flying saucers (used to exploit paranoia), the Runsen Beam, the Ericksen Ray, sonic weapons, electronic force fields, and an anti-gravity device.
Fu Manchu is a skilled medical practitioner and surgeon; he has also cultivated a number of viruses and diseases to use against enemies, including leprosy and the "Black Stigmata" carried by fleas which could place its victims into death-like comas. He has also developed fungus that can spread so quickly that it can entrap a full-sized human being and smother him to death.
Chemicals developed by Fu Manchu include the Green Mist; a memory-removing drug; the Golden Mist; swamp adder venom; mimosa, which relaxes the minds of its subjects, making them completely pliable to Fu's needs; and Kaapi. He also makes frequent use of hashish and opium (for personal use). Fu Manchu has conquered alchemy, and has used its secrets to maintain his fundings.
Fu Manchu's employs the Elixir Vitae, a concoction which can prolong the life of those who are injected with it. Fu Manchu is virtually immortal due to repeated injections. Although he requires a new injection at least every 10 years to prevent death, the chemical has enabled him to survive multiple stabbings and bullet wounds. Although Fu Manchu is well over 100 years old, he appears physically to be within his 40s.
Fu Manchu keeps a number of rare animals within his labs, and has experimented to make these creatures larger and more deadly than they would be in nature. His subjects include the "Zayat Kiss" centipede; giant spiders (one said to have almost human-level intelligence); scorpions; pythons; hamadryads; giant wasps; giant sand flies; lycoperdon; empusa; amanita; Siberian manitamuscania; Mexican morsitans; katigo; "Scarlet Brides"; and some animal-human hybrids.
Fu Manchu is also a master of disguise; despite being Asian, he can pass for a member of almost any race thanks to his linguistic skills (he can speak most languages without hint of an accent). His only distinguishing features are his emerald eyes and claw-like hands (which he conceals behind sunglasses and gloves in some disguises). He has been described as physically resembling both William Shakespeare and Pharaoh Seti. He is over six feet tall.
Fu Manchu is a master of unarmed combat, trained at the Tibetan monastery Rachë Churân.
Fu Manchu's greatest power is his mastery of hypnosis; his eyes are so powerful that few men can gaze into them without falling under his spell, and he can command men to commit murder, suicide, or theft, and not retain any knowledge of who he is and what they have done. He can also hypnotically conceal himself from the attention of others in order to escape enemies.
History: (Master of Kung Fu I#124 (fb) ) - Fu Manchu gained his education in the monastery of Rachë Churân, learning martial arts, arcane knowledge, and every discipline of the sciences. He was highly regarded in the monastery, and considered part of their brotherhood. He finally left the monastery to share his "gifts" with the world.
(The Mystery of Dr. Fu-Manchu) - Fu Manchu became president of the Si-Fan, but was believed by the outside world to be a part of the "young China" movement. He sought to restore to China the glory of the Manchu dynasty he represented, and ultimately conquer the entire planet.
(Master of Kung Fu I#48 (fb) ) - When his daughter Fah Lo Suee was a young child, Fu Manchu once showed her the moon, and told her that one day he would have the power to move one world in order to rule another.
(The Mystery of Dr. Fu-Manchu/Master of Kung Fu I#18 (fb) ) <1911> - While in Rangoon, Burma, British agent Sir Denis Nayland Smith was nearly killed by one of Fu Manchu's agents. He began an investigation of Fu Manchu, and became aware of the threat he posed to the world at large, and England in particular.
(The Mystery of Dr. Fu-Manchu) <1913> - Fu Manchu became active in England, sending his subjects to murder people with the "Zayat kiss," a giant poisonous centipede. Sir Denis Nayland Smith enlisted his friend Dr. Petrie to aid him. Together, they found an ally in Fu's own servant girl Kâramanéh, who spared Smith and Petrie's lives. Fu Manchu also made attempts on the lives of Sir Lionel Barton and Reverend J.D. Eltham. In an altercation with Inspector John Weymouth, Fu Manchu injected him with a poison that drove him insane. Fu Manchu attempted to disguise himself as Professor Jenner Monde, but was found out and detained by Nayland Smith. They arranged to have Fu supply an antidote to Weymouth while under police guard, then set a fire. The police found no trace of Fu Manchu, but he left behind a letter for Smith and Petrie, saying he had been summoned back to China.
(The Return of Dr. Fu-Manchu) <1916> - Fu Manchu used hypnosis to force Kâramanéh back into his service and returned to directing the murders of his enemies, using exotic means such as a cat with poisoned claws, and a "Moses" rod (a cane with a death-adder hidden inside). Smith and Petrie again opposed Fu, and Petrie attempted to break through Kâramanéh's conditioning. Fu Manchu was due to join the Sacred Order of the White Peacock, but lost a white peacock which he was to have presented to the order's "Sublime Prince." Petrie found it and returned it to the doctor, saving his and Smith's lives. Smith and Petrie were finally captured, and Fu Manchu had Smith placed within the "Six Gates of Joyful Wisdom," in which he would expose parts of Smith's body to hordes of starved rats, and gave Petrie a sword to relieve Smith's suffering. However, Kâramanéh burst in and shot Fu Manchu in the head.
(Si-Fan Mysteries) <1917> - Fu Manchu survived and had servants recruit Petrie and Sir Baldwin Frazer to operate on him and remove the bullet. Fu Manchu found that his death had been ordered by the "Sublime Prince" of the "Sublime Order of the White Peacock." Fu's rival Ki-Ming hypnotized Petrie and ordered him to kill Smith, but Smith unloaded Petrie's gun and broke the spell. At one point Petrie spied upon a meeting of the Si-Fan, and had an opportunity to capture Fu, but gave it up when Fu returned Kâramanéh to Petrie. While fleeing England in his yacht, Fu Manchu's ship was wrecked, and he was believed lost at sea.
(The Golden Scorpion) <1918> - Fu Manchu met with his ally (and possible Si-Fan member) Fo-Hi, and viewed Miska, Fo-Hi's slave girl. Miska later divulged that Fo-Hi was to the eastern world what Fu Manchu was to the western.
(The Daughter of Fu Manchu) <1930> - Fah Lo Suee assumed leadership of the Si-Fan and all of her father's servants, clashing with Smith, Petrie and Shan Greville, but ultimately Fu Manchu stepped in and prevented her from killing Smith and Greville, then resumed leadership of the Si-Fan.
(The Mask of Fu Manchu) <1932> - Fu Manchu and Fah Lo Suee attempted to obtain the holy relics of El Mokanna to start a holy war, clashing again with Smith, Petrie, Greville, and Sir Lionel Barton. Fah Lo Suee succeeded in stealing the relics by hypnotizing Greville.
(Master of Kung Fu I#100 (fb) ) <1932, May 23> - Fu Manchu was revealed to have knowledge of the methodology of Jack the Ripper, possibly having created him himself. He plotted with the Si-Fan to duplicate the mental conditioning on Nayland Smith when Smith was found spying on their gathering. Smith was saved by the arrival of Lyman Leeks and Dr. Petrie, and Fu suspected that Fah Lo Suee had betrayed him.
(Master of Kung Fu I#81 (fb) ) <1933> - Fu Manchu kidnapped Kâramanéh as he was in the process of using mind control devices to manipulate representatives of the League of Nations. He was thwarted by Smith, Petrie, and Lyman Leeks.
(The Bride of Fu Manchu) <1933> - From St. Claire de la Roche, Fu Manchu prepared Dr. Petrie's daughter Fleurette to become his bride, but Fah Lo Suee was against the arrangement. When Petrie was seemingly killed by the "Black Stigmata," his friend Alan Sterling became embroiled in Fu Manchu's plots, and avoided an attempt to be drugged into Fu Manchu's service by Fah Lo Suee. When Fu learned that his daughter had betrayed him, he had her beaten. Fu Manchu was pursued by Nayland Smith and captured by French authorities, but declared himself above the law. When his lawyer Maître Foli came to see him, they traded clothes and Fu escaped custody.
(The Trail of Fu Manchu) <1934> - Still intent on having Fleurette as his bride, Fu Manchu kidnapped and smuggled her to England, keeping her in slumber as a "statue" while he was in the guise of the Italian sculptor Professor Pietro Ambrose. He then traveled through England as the Marquis Chang Hu, meeting with men of influence. When Fah Lo Suee betrayed him, Fu had her killed. Requiring another injection of the Elixir Vitae but unable to supply it, Fu offered to release Fleurette and leave Petrie's family in peace if he would concoct an injection and supply him with it. Petrie did so, and Fu was good to his word, releasing his mental hold over Fleurette.
(President Fu Manchu) <1936> - Fu Manchu engaged major operations on U.S. soil as he funded the League of Good Americans through the Si-Fan, attempting to control who would be elected the next President of the U.S. He clashed again with Nayland Smith, and his sponsorship of the League's leader Paul Salvaletti was revealed to the public by Abbot Patrick Donegal. Fleeing to Canada with his staff in a boat, Fu's supposedly loyal servant Albert Morgenstahl turned on him, and their boat was seen plunging over Niagara Falls.
(Master of Kung Fu I#44 (fb) ) - When Fu Manchu's servant Ducharme attempted to flee from Fu with her lover Pan Chen, Fu captured them and killed Chen. Ducharme seemingly became a double agent for MI-6 as a result, but in reality remained loyal to Fu Manchu.
(The Drums of Fu Manchu) <1939> - Fu Manchu attempted to halt World War II from breaking out by assigning the Si-Fan to assassinate the fifteen men who could set it in motion, unless each of those men would submit to the Si-Fan. When Nayland Smith became involved in the conflict, he was added to the Si-Fan's list of targets, but was ultimately released. Fu Manchu used the aliases of Count Boratov and Dr. Maurice Atkin to walk amongst his intended victims.
(Night Moves (fb) ) - Over 50 years ago, Fu Manchu created a bio-engineered man, Lee Min, at his Honan retreat. Lee became a devout follower of Fu Manchu, the Celestial One.
(The Island of Fu Manchu) <1941> - Claiming to be "Damballa" and employing a resurrected Fah Lo Suee as "Queen Mamaloi," Fu Manchu recruited followers in Haiti, and set up an elaborate Si-Fan headquarters at Christophe's Citadel. He clashed with Smith and Bart Kerrigan, and offered Kerrigan a place with the Si-Fan, but the Citadel base was destroyed when Fu's Ericksen ray attracted a bolt of lightning that destroyed the base.
(Master of Kung Fu I#114 (fb) ) <1942> - Fu Manchu took the woman Mara Ling to be his wife as part of an arranged marriage, but she loved a blind archer named Li. She refused to sleep with him until he offered her the Elixir Vitae. She took the drug and slept with him, then attempted to give the potion to Li. Fu Manchu sent a Si-Fan to pursue him, and the chase continued for decades.
(The Shadow of Fu Manchu) <1948> - The Si-Fan, FBI, and KGB all sought the transmuter, a disintegrator ray, and Fu Manchu kept an eye on the inventor by assuming the guise of Professor Carl Hoffmeyer, physician to the wife of the device's funder. Fu Manchu again clashed with Nayland Smith, but avoided capture.
(The Wrath of Fu Manchu) <1952> - Fu Manchu schemed to use a Runsen Beam that would transform the U.S. gold reserves into lead. When Smith snuck into a meeting of the Council of Seven led by Fah Lo Suee and arrested nearly all of the council, Fu Manchu abandoned Fah Lo Suee
(Re-Enter Fu Manchu) <1957> - Fu Manchu entered into an alliance with the U.S.S.R., but when their agent Josef Gorodin poisoned his supply of Elixir Vitae, he had Gorodin killed and broke off the alliance. Assuming the guise of Dr. Otto Hessian, an atomic physicist lost behind the Iron Curtain, Fu offered a powerful sonic weapon ("sound zero") to the U.S., intending for them to use it to conquer Communist China for him, and seeking an opportunity to murder the U.S. President. He was again thwarted by Nayland Smith.
(The Eyes of Fu Manchu) <1957> - Fu Manchu attempted to force Dr. Gregory Allen to join him, but Nayland Smith came to Dr. Allen's rescue, and Fu Manchu fled.

(Emperor Fu Manchu) <1959> - Fu Manchu made an alliance of convenience with Communist China, while diverting their resources into the Si-Fan, intending to eventually overthrow them and establish his own rule. He produced an army of "cold men"-- resurrected Dacoits-- in Szechuan province. Tony McKay and Nayland Smith investigated the territory over rumors of a Russian germ factory based in Hua-Tzu. Fu Manchu again evaded Smith, but Smith obtained a registry of the Si-Fan's membership, giving him the opportunity to eventually cripple the organization.
(Special Marvel Edition#15 (fb) ) <1959> - Smith and McKay launched their attack upon the Si-Fan, but the attempt failed, and Fu had McKay killed. He tortured Smith by having his sumo servant Tak crush his legs.

Fah Lo Suee seemingly returned to serve her father, but proved to be disloyal yet again, providing aid to Shang-Chi, Nayland Smith and their allies. Shang-Chi confronted Fu Manchu in New York as he was preparing to detonate a nuclear bomb, and he fought his father aboard a "UFO," savagely beating Fu and then smashing the ship's controls, sending it to crash in the ocean, seemingly killing Fu Manchu.
(Master of Kung Fu I#115-118) - As tong leader "Wang Yu-Seng," Fu Manchu sought to kidnap Fah Lo Suee and Shang-Chi to jumpstart the Elixir Vitae, which now needed the blood of his own offspring in order to restore him to full vigor. With the help of Death-Dealer he captured Shang and intended to hold him hostage and slowly drain his blood, but Shang escaped. He brought Fah Lo Suee to Honan to have her blood, but Shang pursued him. Fu Manchu unleashed a clone he had made of Shang and raised as his own son, but Shang bested him, and the clone was killed. Fu Manchu attempted to lap up the clone's blood to save his life, even as the fortress crumbled around him. Shang-Chi left his father to meet his doom.
(Night Moves (fb) ) - With Fu Manchu's apparent death, he was replaced by Lee Min as the leader of the Si-Fan. Lee aimed to resurrect Fu Manchu. Even so, Fu Manchu could appear in Chinatown as a ghost, with limited powers.
(Night Life (fb) ) - Fu Manchu's soul was tortured in the Hell-like dimension known as Nether Realm, chained for years next to sorcerer Bartholomew Jacobs. Jacobs told Fu Manchu about his book, "A Madman's Mutterings", on spells that can open portals through worlds and extract mystical energies that would change the Earth. Purportedly, Fu Manchu's ghost told the Si-Fan about this book.
(Night Moves) - Criminal gang Faces of Fear made a deal to get the Si-Fan's support against the Maggia in Chinatown, in exchange for a stolen magic book, Bartholomew Jacobs' "A Madman's Mutterings", that the Si-Fan sought to use to resurrect Fu Manchu. To resurrect Fu Manchu, they needed (1) Fu Manchu's dead body; (2) a number of snakes, which were stolen by Si-Fan recruit the Silver Samurai (Keniuchio Harada); and (3) all the blood of one of Fu Manchu's relatives; for the latter. they kidnapped Fu Manchu's daughter Fah Lo Suee, intending to bleed her out. The Si-Fan were opposed in their efforts in a three-way struggle by the Maggia-allied Dragonlords and Chinatown residents and protectors Tiger's Claw.
The Si-Fan smuggled Fu Manchu's body to New York City, but the box containing it was stolen by the Dragonlords. Meanwhile, heroes investigating the theft of the book meddled in Chinatown, following reports of Fu Manchu's ghost (unidentified as Fu Manchu at this point); and Fah's disappearance attracted the attention of her brother Shang-Chi, who infiltrated the Si-Fan as Lee's butler, Hsih Feng.
Silver Samurai recovered Fu Manchu's body on Pier 35, offering the Dragonlords one million dollar as ransom, but he betrayed the Dragonlords and simply teleported away with the corpse with a device provided by the Faces of Fear leaders Fixer (Norbert Ebersol) and Mentallo (Marvin Flumm). Heroes meddling in the encounter caused the arrest of several Dragonlords, leading to a victory party for Chinatown citizens and the Tiger's Claw - which was interrupted by Fu Manchu's ominous ghost. Fu Manchu sent skeletal spectres to attack the party. Although the monsters were defeated, Shang-Chi decided to confide in the other heroes and lead them to the Si-Fan's headquarters in Lee's basement. The heroes are captured and forced to watch the underground resurrection ceremony, which was also observed by the Si-Fan and the Faces of Fear bosses; via four video monitors, warriors of the Si-Fan criminal empire across the world awaited for Fu Manchu's return.
Fu Manchu was resurrected, younger than he was at the time of his death (and Fah Lo Suee was killed in the process). After the heroes escaped, Fu Manchu and the Faces of Fear leaders fled.
(Night Life (fb) ) - Fu Manchu recovered his worldwide criminal empire and plotted to escalate the situation to take over the world.
(Night Life (fb) ) - Fu Manchu personally (with escorting ninjas) kidnapped whiz kid Cameron Seaver, who worked for Roxxon on a dimensional gate project to the Nether Realm. Fu Manchu forced Seaver to build portal "bombs" that, combined with Fu Manchu's magic power, would create portals to the Nether Realm, releasing monsters from there and slowly altering the Earth into a Hell-like dimension. The Rulers of the Nether Realm were angry at the intrusion and sought to recover Fu Manchu's soul for torture.
(Night Life (fb) ) - Fu Manchu distributed four bombs throughout New York City: In the Bronx Zoo, protected by fractious gorillas; in the Coney Island amusement park; in the head of the Statue of Liberty, protected by a "creature from the void" he summoned; and in a sewer under the United Nations headquarter protected by "Gator" (Bart Buckle, a beggar whom Fu Manchu mutated into a monster). Fu Manchu kept a fifth bomb with himself for a later stage.
(Night Life) - Fu Manchu blackmailed Seaver's boss, Hiram Jones, to provide him with technology supplies for his bombs, threatening to murder Jones' family. The Si-Fan also bribed Roxxon security staff men to keep an eye on Jones and to be alert of potential dangers. When several heroes delved too deeply on Seaver's case and other Si-Fan and Faces of Fear interests, Fu Manchu sent costumed criminals against them (Fly, Mad-Dog and Rhino). Jones tried to murder the heroes to be on the good side of his blackmailer; failing this, Jones confessed.
(Night Life) - Seeking to escalate the gang war because it weakened his enemies, the Kingpin (Wilson Fisk) offered to arbitrate among them, but Fu Manchu refused. Kingpin then offered to reveal the location of Fu Manchu's secret hideout to the heroes. The heroes then located and rescued Seaver, who told them about the bombs, and the heroes went after the four bombs. Meanwhile, Fu Manchu joined the Fixer and Mentallo in using a giant Deathlok replica (apparently created by the Faces of Fear) to attack the mansion of Maggia's leader and Faces of Fear's rival Hammerhead. Fu Manchu hid the last bomb in the mansion's park. The intruders were confronted by Hammerhead's minion Goliath (Erik Josten) and by the heroes. The Deathlok robot was destroyed, and Fu Manchu attempted to detonate the bombs manually. When he did, however, a portal opened, and a tentacled monster focused on getting Fu Manchu back to the Nether Realm, while its Rulers voiced threats to him...
America I#412 - BTS) - Determined to rid the world of his father's
stain, Shang journeyed to A.I.M. Island to determine what his father's
connection to that organization was, but his findings were inconclusive.
(Marvel Knights I#4) - Fu Manchu employed Zaran to retrieve a chemical from A.I.M. He then directed Zaran to kill Shang-Chi for him.
(Marvel Knights I#11-14) - Fu Manchu dispatched his Dacoits to aid Zaran against Shang-Chi and his allies. They succeeded in destroying the building where Shang and his friends had made their base, but Zaran failed to slay Shang.
(Master of Kung Fu II#1-6) - Using the aliases of Comte de St. Germain and "the Ghost," Fu Manchu employed his son Moving Shadow as he prepared the Hellfire weapon, a lightning ray which could destroy entire cities. He was opposed again by MI-6, including Shang-Chi, and ultimately his weapon was destroyed.
Panther IV#11) - Calling himself "Han," Fu Manchu offered his daughter
Kwai Far to the Black Panther as a prospective bride, but T'Challa
refused him, and drove him off alongside Shang-Chi and Luke Cage.

Adapted by Steve Englehart, Jim Starlin, and Al Milgrom.
Post-Master of Kung Fu I#125, Marvel comics has no longer been able to publish stories with Fu Manchu's name, but have continued to grant him occasional appearances sans his true name.
Note that "Fu" and "Manchu" are both surnames; this is intentional. Rohmer originally wrote the name as "Fu-Manchu," but it was intended as an alias. However, Fu Manchu has claimed to be descended from China's Manchu dynasty (like many of the Si-Fan).
Note that in his earliest appearances, Fu was given a sickly-yellow skin coloring; by the time of Master of Kung Fu I#80, he was rendered in a flesh tone nearer to his son. It's mark of how far coloring had come...not to mention racial sensitivity.
Fu Manchu delivered a lengthy speech to Fleurette in Master of Kung Fu I#47 even though she wasn't there. Since he was speaking about the betrayal of Shang-Chi, it might be that she was Shang's mother.
Jean-Marc L'Officier suggested Fu Manchu was one of the "Immortal Nine" in an unpublished script.
"After Midnight", "Night Moves" and "Night Life" are three role-playing game adventures by Anthony Herring, published by TSR. Inc in 1990, that make up the so-called "Gang War trilogy" or "Gang War storyline". Fu Manchu does not appear in the first installment, but he has relevant protagonism in the other two.
Fu Manchu has a profile, including role-playing-game, in both "Night Moves" and "Night Life", repeating literally the same text except for the aspects related to the plot of "Gang War". He has several magical spells and powers, and many talents related to occultism, science and martial arts.
The epilogue of "Night Life" gives suggestions and ideas for potential further adventures. One of them suggests that Fu Manchu had brainwashed Cameron Saver with a latent mental command to rebuild his technology so that he could bring back Fu Manchu.
Now: Fu Manchu apparently died in "Master of Kung Fu I#118" (1982); then is seen again alive in "Marvel Knights I#4" (2000). During several years (Marvel time), Fu Manchu was "believed dead", or alternatively he was dead and then resurrected. Proposed timeline: 1982, Shang-Chi kills Fu Manchu. 1990, the Si-Fan resurrect Fu Manchu, but the Rulers of the Nether Realm take him back. [Some point between 1991 and 1999], Fu Manchu is resurrected again (which explains his inactivity).
The only continuity problem that occurred to me was the death of Fah Lo Suee, but both she and Fu Manchu have died and been resurrected multiple times, so not really an issue in my opinion.
Manchu could mean "Father Pure"--one of the Mandarin words FU means
"Father"; and MANCHU means "pure" according to both Funk & Wagnalls
Standard Desk Dictionary (1976) and The Oxford English
Dictionary--second edition. As for his alias the Ghost in Mandarin it
Because this profile is about the Marvel comics interpretation of Fu and there have been hundreds of other interpretations and dozens of imitators, this section will be kept brief.
Sax Rohmer's novels are treated as in-continuity (unless proven otherwise) for the sake of the Marvel Universe, based on in-canon references to events from novels such as The Daughter of Fu Manchu and Emperor Fu Manchu.
Rohmer enthusiasts have established much more detailed timelines of Fu Manchu's life based on their own research; I've chosen to list the events of Rohmer's stories by the year in which they were first published, as the world of Earth-616 need not necessarily obey the timelines of the novels. Plus, it's way simpler.

Fu Manchu should not be confused with lots of other villains, because he's the prototype evil Asian mastermind. Here are a few:
