Characters Appearing: Black Jack Tarr, Clive Reston, Ducharme, Leiko Wu, Shang-Chi, Shockwave, Sir Denis Nayland Smith
Master of Kung Fu #43
Issue(s): Master of Kung Fu #43
The battle is at MI-6's safehouse at the private estate of MI-6's Chief of Swiss Operations, Sir Herbert Griswold.
It turns out Shockwave is MI-6 leader Sir Denis' nephew, which is why the others didn't want to tell him about Shockwave's actions last issue.
Black Jack is seemingly killed in a bomb explosion.
And the mysterious double agent that Leiko was sent to protect turns out to be... someone i never heard of.
She was apparently a concubine of Fu Manchu's, though, and Shang-Chi knows her.
A lot of spy intrigue, and the dialogue, characterization, and art bring it to the next level.

Oddly, the MCP lists Ducharme's DHKF appearances but not her MOKF appearances. I wasn't sure if it was the same character.
(The management apologizes for all of the acronyms in this comment.)

Paul Gulacy stated in an interview that a number of character faces were based on movie actors, one of whom being Lee Marvin(though I can't guess which character represented which actor).

In FOOM#13, Moench stated that Griswold was based on Sydney Greenstreet and Robert Morley.

Ducharme had appeared in several earlier Shang Chi stories, but I think those had all been in the B&W title Deadly Hands of Kung Fu.
