Who is Razor Fist?

In Marvel comics, there have been three different people who have taken up the name “Razor Fist.” William Young and the two brothers Douglas Scott and William Scott. All have been antagonists who have fought Shang Chi in one way or another. From the looks of it, the Razor Fist from the trailer is one of the two Scott brothers as we can see they have one bladed hand and one regular hand. William Young had both of his hands replaced with steel blades, so we can rule him out.

It’s unclear which of the two brothers will be taking up the Razor Fist name in the movie, but from what we’ve seen in the trailer, he’s out for blood.

Razor Fist’s powers come primarily from the fact that he has a blade in place of a hand. He doesn’t posses any superhuman abilities, but has trained in martial arts and is at the peak of human athletic ability.
