Midnight Sun decapitates White Dragon and Skull-Crusher for the Mao Shan Pai ritual, which requires the heads of the triad leaders. Instead of granting him the powers that the ritual would grant him, the spell instead resurrects Leiko due to Skull-Crusher secretly making her the leader of his clan before her death. Leiko proceeds to get her revenge by using her newfound powers to destroy Razor Fist's blades and summons the spirits of the dead triad leaders to drag Midnight Sun back to their realm. Shang-Chi is unable to bring his former lover back to her normal self and she flees when Black Jack Tarr arrives at the estate with backup. However Leiko is later seen taking a photo that Shang-Chi leaves behind at her grave of the two of them, hinting that she still values their old love.
Alternate versions of Leiko Wu
Leiko Wu exists in the Ultimate Marvel Universe. She is hired by Shang-Chi's father to hire other people to bring him back to China alive, and develops an interest in Shang-Chi after he stops some men who stole her bags.
