Little is detailed about Shang-Chi’s life before the zombie plague arrived on Earth-2149, however it can be presumed that it followed much the same path as Shang-Chi of Earth-616.

Presumably, Shang-Chi receives a call from Nick Fury to join the resistance aboard the S.H.I.E.L.D. Helicarrier, and leaves to join them.

With the extremely varied bunch all assembled on the Helicarrier, Nick explains how serious he believes the situation to be; that it is the end of the world. He also explains that whatever the histories of those assembled, they are all on the same side.

It can also be assumed that he was part of the team sent back down to the surface to battle the zombies, unsuccessfully,[1] it would seem as when Beast and Reed Richards find a sizeable stash of meat in Latveria and the surrounding area, a zombified Shang-Chi and a huge horde zombies head off to lay siege to Castle Doomstadt.[2]

Unable to gain access to the fortress, presumably, Shang-Chi gets held up by the risen Deadite Legion, and at some point returns to New York, where he can be seen being hit by a large piece of debris from the ruins of the Baxter Building, which is being magnetically thrown by Magneto, as the Master of Magnetism tries to escape to Asteroid M.[3]

Though he isn’t seen again it can be assumed that he died, either from being cooked by the Power Cosmic Marvel Zombies or indeed by the debris itself.
