Presumably, the history of Shangai on Earth-616 is basically the same as that of the real world. The purpose of this article is to cover only events that occurred in Shanghai that are unique to Earth-616.
During World War II, Shanghai like much of China was under the occupation of the Imperial Japanese. In October of 1942, the Allied super-hero group known as the Invaders smuggled themselves into China in order to extract boy genius Zhang Chin to work for the Allied Forces. Eventually, the Allied Forces won World War II and China was liberated from the Japanese. However, Shanghai soon came under control of the Communist Chinese regime that took the place of the Japanese.
In 1954, Captain America and Bucky Barnes travelled to Shanghai during the Feast of the Green Dragon, in order to locate a stolen list of UN officials that was stolen by a Communist spy. There with the assistance of the mythical Green Dragon, Cap and Bucky managed to recover the list before it could expose defected communist agents to harm.
