Aside from Yinsen, another crucial player in this story is a young Chinese girl named Shi Fu. Shi Fu is a talented young Chinese student who Doctor Doom trains in mental and spiritual development.

While learning under the tutelage of the famous practitioner Doctor Doom, i.e., Yinsen, she develops an intense interest in the history of the mystical artifacts known as the Mind Gems.

Except for the Iron Man and Spiderman, other characters have owned and used these discs throughout the Marvel’s What If series like The Fantastic Four, The Incredible Hulk, X-Men, and many others.

One of the primary reasons they were placed in the What If books were to introduce a new element in the comic universe.

With the Mind Gems, the villains were acting as a weakness that made them vulnerable. In the Marvel’s What If series, Yinsen had the power to control the minds of everyone on the planet.

With his Mind Gem, he could make anyone think and think again; however, only those with the highest rank of his staff knew his secrets.

The X-Men were a secret to the world until the birth of Professor X when an experiment left all of mutant-kind with superhuman powers.


It is sure to believe that Yinsen played a dominant role of a villain who was successfully impressing the public with his excellent acting skills in the movie.
