Golden Age History

Fu Chang was a Chinese American living in the Chinatown district of San Francisco. While he dressed like a modern American outside his home, he dressed in traditional Chinese clothes at home. He was also a devout worshiper of the ancient gods and because of this was given a set of magic chessmen by the elderly magician Sing Po, a direct descendant of Aladdin. These chessmen possess the same magic of Aladdin's lamp and can be brought to life to serve Fu Chang. He uses them to help him fight crime in San Francisco. He is also aided by his sweetheart Tay Ming.

His arch-nemesis was the evil magician Joodar.
