Mister Wu is a gentleman detective, sophisticated, clever and a good investigator. He is also Indian--that is, he is from India, which makes him Marvel's first (historically) Asian hero. (He works in the U.S., though.) While he has no superpowers, he is a good private eye nd is a good fighter. He wears a blue suit with top hat, monocle, and cane, which he uses as a weapon when necessary. He is assisted by Alfie, a white youth who speaks in a faux Dead End Kids patois (to quote Dr. Clayton Forrester); Alfie is unsophisticated, but always up for a fight, and is useful to Mister Wu as muscle.
