The Family Tree

Extremely fascinating research has been done on the subject of Shang Chi's genealogy by Win Scott Eckert. Interestingly, we see the Nayland SmithSherlock Holmes - Lancaster Sneed - Clive RestonJames Bond connections.

It should be noted, this parentage makes Fu Manchu the half-brother of Professor Moriarty and a cousin of Tarzan. However, Farmer's identification of General Sir William Clayton as Fu Manchu's father - and as father of Moriarty, for that matter - is not universally accepted. Some scholars prefer to follow the hints in Rohmer's books that Fu Manchu is actually an ancient Egyptian pharaoh.Source Link
