Ancient History

China has long been the locus of odd phenomenon. One million years ago, the aliens of K'un-Lun came to live there. Early on, they encountered their plant-like enemies.

The Missing Link lived in what later became China.[1]

A group of Lemurians fleeing the sinking of their continent made it to the coast of the Thurian continent. They were enslaved by the natives, but would later defeat their masters and force them to flee. These fleeing masters became the Stygians and later the pre-Arab Egyptians. The Lemurians became the Khitains.

Khitai became the source of much attention during the Hyborian Age. Paiking was an important city. Yag-Kosha, an extraterrestrial, came to live there. Jong Tsak became a noted mercenary. During the Hyborian Age, a figure claiming to be Death appeared to Conan in Khitai (forerunners of the Chinese). He dismissed this as an impostor. He would later encounter the Great Wall of Khitai, a forerunner to the Great Wall of China, as well as a Yeti-ish creature. His son Conn later married a Khitain woman. Princess Noyo of Khitai served the Primal Gods.

The Talismans of Power originated in ancient China.

Centuries ago, aliens including Fin Fang Foom crashed to Earth in China. Their technology later fell into the hands of the Mandarin.[2]

The Great Wall of China was built to keep out Grogg and other dragons.

Around 1211 AD, during a period when China was being invaded by Genghis Khan, China was visited by 20th Century time traveler Tommy Tyme. Tommy prevented Khan from obtaining the Crown of Confucius, which would have made the warlord the undisputed ruler of China.[3]

The people of Khitai worshiped such deities as Tou-Mou, Cheng-Ho, Shou-Lao, and Lei-Kung. They must also have come into contact with K'un L'un, the society of aliens with similarly named denizens.

Fu Manchu, the notorious outlaw, claims to be about 3000 years old, as he claims the pyraminds were built for him.

Skaka Kar was a prominent soldier in China's past.

Yu Huang met with other deities around 1000 CE.[4]

1000 years ago, the Chinese man Kan encountered the N'Garai.

The Four Winds were founded in the 11th century CE.[5]

Fu Manchu, the famous criminal, began his offensive against many law enforcement agencies, taking part in a kidnap attempt on the League of Nations, meeting with his group the Si-Fan in Egypt to announce the molding of a new agent with the mind of Jack the Ripper, as well as other struggles.

On the Japanese controlled Shoto Island, they found a tunnel leading to Pearl Harbor, Hawaii, and destroyed it.[10] Also during this time, China was visited by the Vision who assisted an American envoy meet with Chinese General Kai Shek, clashing with Japanese forces in the process.[11] Also during this time, elderly Chinese official Mother Wong joined up with the Imperial Japanese army as a double agent working for the Allies. When her position was compromised during an engagement with American troops deployed to the area, Captain America and Bucky assisted her in maintaining her cover.[12] In 1944, Betty Dean travelled to the Chinese village of Kwangto to help with the evacuation efforts before an impending invasion by the Imperial Japanese Army.

She was ultimately stopped by the Sub-Mariner and Namora.[17]

Following the war, China entered a civil war which ended with Mao Zedong's People Liberation Army taking control of the country over the American backed Kumintang National Government. This soon led to an allegiance with the Soviet Union, another communist nation in opposition with the United States. Thus China entered into the Cold War. In late 1949 early 1950, the United States secretly assisted resistance movements in the area, at one point sending Secret Service Kent Blake into the region to assist the Nationalist resistance. He sniffed out a spy in their ranks and left the resistance fighters in the care of American soldier of fortune Sam Bancroft.[18] As tensions continued to rise between the United States and China over the Korean and Cold Wars, the United States sent the 1950's Captain America and Bucky smuggled themselves into the country and recovered a list of Chinese defectors to the United Nations with the assistance of the fabled Green Dragon.[19]

Chin recognizes the Winter Soldier as Bucky; Bucky is surprised, as he was mindwiped by the Soviets. Then out of nowhere, Chin's shadowy bodyguard appeared to protect him.[20] Winter Soldier is subdued by the Man With No Face, a failed attempt of Chin's to create China's own supersoldier, able to blend in with the shadows but is only effective as a spy. Chin tells his bodyguard to not to kill him, as he has questions. However, the Winter Soldier is able to escape.[21]
