Shang-Chi, the Master of Kung Fu, is troubled. As Manhattan island is infested by a mysterious virus that gives ordinary people spider-powers — including the martial arts master himself — he is beset by nightmares of being a deadly spider, attacking and cocooning innocent people in unprovoked attacks.

When Shang-Chi learns that his friend and fellow kung fu hero Iron Fist has the same dreams, he knows the time has come to act. But this is a battle that will test Shang-Chi's willpower, strength, and heroism to the limit...

THE DEADLY HANDS OF KUNG FU is part of Marvel's 2011 summer event, SPIDER-ISLAND. The series can be read on its own, or as part of the larger event. It's collected in the SPIDER-MAN: SPIDER-ISLAND COMPANION.
