DC Comics will release its DC Festival of Heroes: The Asian Superhero Celebration. It will state a different superhero, Monkey Prince. This hero is inspired by the Monkey King of Chinese mythology.
"Debuting within a story offered by award-winning writer Gene Luen Yang with art by Benard Chang Monkey Prince is inspired with all the Monkey King, the legendary hero of Chinese Culture as well as a classic tale, Journey to your West," a release from DC reads. "In Yang and Chang's original 12-page story, 'The Monkey Prince Hates Superheroes,' Monkey Prince battles and teams with Shazam to defeat the evil Dr. Sivana and also a Chinese deer demon spirit."
Monkey Prince is inspired through the same Monkey King from Chinese mythology featured in Game Science's Block Myth: Wukong gaming, which received a new trailer aimed towards bosses, enemies, areas hanging out, and spells a couple of weeks ago.
To celebrate this character's arrival to the DC Comics, the publisher is releasing a selective, one out of 25, Monkey Prince variant cover by Chang.
