History

 

STATED TO THE PUBLIC

Weilong Zhang AKA Master Zhang is a highly decorated Chinese Army General of 20 years of dedicated, exemplary service, a war hero of the Soltan Invasion of 2000, the leader of the vaunted Champions of China and a legendary protector of the People's Republic of China.

The son of Chinese General Shiazo Zhang and his wife, Miasa, Weilong Zhang grew up at military posts throughout China, eventually settling with his family in Beijing, where his father worked for the government administrative agencies and his mother worked as a health care worker in one of many of China's hospitals. Weilong, raised by the governs of a positive Chinese education and dedicated community, grew up to become an active, well-educated teenager when his new mutant powers first emerged. Through Weilong's desires and his family's full backing, Weilong admitted himself to be tested to discover the extent of his fire-based powers and to learn how best to use his powers in the defense of China. By age 17, Weilong was indoctrinated into the Republic of China Armed Forces as a 2nd Lieutenant. By the year 1999, he'd deservedly received the earned rank of Major. The next year, the Soltan Star Empire invaded Earth.

Major Weilong, leading hundreds of Chinese troops, successfully fought the Soltan invaders in China, becoming a legendary protector and hero of the Chinese people. He was promoted to the rank of Colonel as a result of his exemplary combat experience and in 2010, was promoted to the rank of General.  In 2014, General Zhang retired from active military service, but remained in the Army Reserves as he began to head-up the new "Champions of China" superhero initiative program.

In 2015, under his new appointed heroic codename title of Master Zhang, he became the leader of the China's first and new highly trained superhero team named after the program as the Champions of China.  Within days of their worldwide introduction, the murderous undersea warlords of the Kaha Koa invaded Hong Kong. The Champions of China, under the leadership of Master Zhang not only saved thousands of innocent lives but also drove back the invaders back into the sea, resulting in a glorious victory for China's first superhero team.

Today, Master Zhang continues to lead the Champions of China. He is married, but for the protection of his family, he has asked for secrecy about his wife's identity and/or if they have children or not (which as of this writing, he has said he has no children). He is still a dedicated leaders and a heroic example to the people of China and the world. His disciplined demeanor, tactically skillful planning and his amazing leadership skills are worthy to be noted even by the leaders within the United Nations and even the international peacekeeping agency known as G.U.A.R.D.  He is a genuine example to the world as a true hero to the people.

UNKNOWN TO THE PUBLIC

Born in 1970, Weilong Zhang was born as the son of Chinese General Shiazo Zhang and a Manchurian woman, Miasa, later discovered to be a mutant with fire powers. Miasa's powers were observed for the first time when Weilong was 8 years old when she used her powers to stop a car that was about to run over her son, melting the car into the pavement, sadly, killing the drunk Chinese driver in the vehicle. Weilong and his mother was taken away to a secret lab where they were both probed and prodded relentlessly. Eventually, Weilong was returned to his father, Shiazo, however, Weilong was classifed as 'state property' and allowed the father to supervise his son or 'disappeared' from existence by the Chinese government. Weilong's mother was never seen again. Weiolong and his father, however, were reassigned to a clandestine unit simply called "Unit 20" that was a secret metahuman proving and development center. There, both Weilong and his father stayed.

 

In 1988 was inducted into the Republic of China Armed Forces at a 2nd Lieutenant. Weilong's father taught his son how to be the best military solider and officer he could with Weilong enjoying the opportunity to be trained by his own father whom he admired. From 1988 to 1999, Weilong rose through military ranks while also learning to use his mutant flame-based powers in combat. On several clandestine missions and security operations, he was allowed to use his powers to stop spies trying to infiltrate Unit 20 as well as several other low-level super-powered interactions (mostly extra-national intelligence teams and/or GUARD personnel trying to learn more about China's super, magical and metahuman population). Weilong, by 1999, was leading a troop of over 120 secretive specially-trained soldiers and metahumans, keeping themselves as a secret weapon that no other nation knew about but China's key government personnel. Several escape attempts occurred from Unit 20, but Major Weilong and/or his troops killed them before they got too far. By 1999, Major Weilong has over 46 confirmed kills to his name. That's when the Soltan Star Empire decided to invade Earth in January 2000.

As an interjectory note, prior to 2000, Weilong had also worked with the legendary Manchurian Murata, a Chinese hero that had been secretly kept hidden from only but a few dozen personnel while he was tortured, experimented on and forced to pro-create hundreds of children all to aid in populating China's army of metahumans, most of which were under Major Weilong's command by the start of 2000.

When the Soltans invaded Earth in 2000, Unit 20 was the epicenter of the greatest focus of the attack on China.  More than 90% of all of Unit 20's personnel, including Major Zhang's metahuman troops, died in the initial attack, with many others either killed in the ensuring attacks to 'recaptured' by Chinese officials and 'disappeared' after fleeing during the invasion. Master Zhang and a handful of other Chinese metahumans, magical users and highly skilled combatants survived and formed a small team that eventually recruited hundreds of new citizen-soldiers to fight and kill the invading Soltans. As such, Major Zhang's Company of Anti-Soltan soldiers took out thousands of Soltans all by themselves, at one point liberating Beijing days before the Soltans retreated from Earth several months after the start of the invasion.

After the invasion, Weilong was promoted to the rank of Colonel and was tasked with rebuilding what was once Unit 20, however, the Chinese government was furious about the lack of Unit 20's ability to have stopped the Soltans in the initial attacks (which no human forces on Earth was able to perform, except for the secretive magical society known as the Conglomerate). As such, the re-creation of Unit 20 was tied up in political debate and rhetoric for years.  Eventually, an initiative called the 'Champions' program was authorized, allowing Colonel Zhang to once again find and train the newest line of Chinese magically-empowered, highly-skilled, mutant and/or scientifically-created superhuman/metahuman beings.  In 2010, he was promoted to General and began leading his secretive sect of heroes on clandestine Chinese government-fed missions, all the while keeping secrecy of their actions. Eventually, in 2014, a 'Champions' program scientist went missing and wasn't found, potentially exposing the Champions project's secrets.  As such General Zhang initiated their 'exposure' protocols and thus General Zhang became the Chinese superhero "Master Zhang" and his militant trained band of super/metahumans were now reimaged as China's first and new superhero group, the "Champions of China".

Master Zhang led the well planned public relations campaign that had been created years before when his program was to have to go public. The stories and biographies of his team members read like epic Chinese hero stories, making them out to be selfless quintessential heroes of the people. As part of the plan, things were set in motion to enrage a few of the Pacific Ocean's undersea warlords of the evil Kaha Koa sect, forcing the warlords to want to attack China, specifically Hong Kong. With his 'Champions' already well trained in how to fight Kaha Koa and its forces, when Kaha Koa finally invaded Hong Kong, the Champions of China easily defeated Kaha Koa, all while televised showing the team's amazing skills, teamwork and devotion to saving innocent lives.  Master Zhang pulled off his 'master plan' resulting in the world loving the Champions of China, calling them 'true heroes of the world'.

 

Over the next few years, Master Zhang led the Champions of China in battle in several dozen operations and conflicts, always highlighting the exceptional teamwork, coordination and heroic attributes of him and his team, while at the same time, denigrating the rest of the world's superhero groups and agencies, calling them 'untrained and dangerous'.  Eventually, thanks to his leadership and plotting (and getting the Chinese government to use of billions of dollars in bribery), Master Zhang was able to 'influence' United Nations ambassadors and Security Council leaders and personnel to align the Champions of China with international peacekeeping access to all nations. Several nations, including the United States, disallowed this, whereas the United Nations voted and allowed the Champions of China unfettered access to all nations except those that had petitioned against them.

Today, Master Zhang, married and with three children (all considered 'government property' since they too have powers), continues to lead the Champions of China and  hundreds of his organization's support personnel and troops.  He is a righteous man and a die-hard Chinese communist with aspirations to see China rise up to become the only remaining super-power nation in the world.  He is bull-headed, yet tactically flexible and intellectually smart but unable to perform non-military critical thinking. He is a master in combat operations and superhero teamwork and to this day is considered as a epitomized example of what a true Chinese hero is supposed to emulate.
