Yes I am of asian descent and I gotta say it was until after the olympics that reminded me of my cultural heritage. I remember great tales like Sun Wu Kong and how he took down half his entire pantheon and kicked every other A** there was.

Chinese mythology is the best cultural and religious folk tale there is. Its only rivals are: Greek, Roman, Egyptian, and Hindu mythology.

Even though it is not theistic in the mythological sense, I will count you in, since it's a Chinese religion. Thanks for respecting my culture! *sniff* I value it just as much as if not more than Nintendo themselves.

If he was going to die, he'd die fighting; he'd make sure that the Technomancers were never forgotten. Morshan Sakru: The Last Technomancer would be a name all Avatar would shutter at the thought of for etenity. Morshan now knew what happened to a man who had nothing left to live for but vengence: he became a monster.

Chinese cultural heritage and mythologies have been around for thousands of years and are rich in culture as well as diversity. Though not as popular in western societies and Roman or Greek mythology, in my opinion, Chinese mythology far surpasses them.

In some aspects, yes, Chinese mythology does surpass Greco-Roman. Though Greco-Roman is more "fap-worthy"(sorry for the term), since we're all in the western world anyway.

In terms of power and drive, Sun Wu Kong just puts Hercules and Thor to shame.

In Dragonball, yes.

By Dragonball Z, he'd mutated into a Superman clone.

Who is Su Wu Kong? You guys keep on talking about him and I'm clueless. Someone give me some info please.
