Never in my wildest dreams... did I imagine I would meet a creature I pitied more than myself
~ Egg Tzu

Egg Fu is a supervillain from DC comics and one of the more distinctive characters of the company, being portrayed as an egg-shaped humanoid and dating back to the Silver Age where he was originally a Chinese Communist agent and an enemy of Wonder Woman.

Egg Fu's real name is Chang Tzu, but writers seem to have discontinued his use of this name - though there is debate on the matter as Egg Fu has appeared in many different variations over the years.

History

Egg Fu first appeared in the series as a Chinese Communist agent. In this appearance he did not have his robotic-tech, instead using a mustache for combat. He kidnaps Steve Trevor and makes him into a "human bomb' later launching both Steve and a missile at an American fleet. Wonder Woman intervenes, but she was unable to save Steve, instead directing him into the other missile.

The exploding destroyed the missile but killed Wonder Woman and Steve in the process. Wonder Woman's mother, Queen Hippolyta, gathered their remains and was able to resemble them in a lab on Paradise Island. Steve, when returned to normal, still had the explosive energy implanted inside of him by Egg Fu. This had also ended up in Wonder Woman. Wonder Woman planned to use this against the scientist, and so he sends his troops after her.

They were unable to defeat her. Steve and Wonder Woman ended up being cured with a piece of anti-matter and the Amazon forces defeated Egg Fu himself.

Post Crisis on Infinite Earths

After the events of Crisis of Infinite Earths, Egg Fu received a new backstory and design. He was a rediscovered nineteenth century super computer that was made into carnival attraction, later revealed to be a product of Apokoliptian. He was created using technology that Scott Free had left behind.

After he was activated, he begins taking over the minds of humans and prepares them to be transported to Apokolips. He is defeated by Queen Hippolyta and her accomplices.

Post Infinite Crisis

After the Infinite Crisis, Egg Fu now calls himself Chang Tzu. In this series, he is now a giant yellow egg with robot-spider appendages. He, with the help of Bruno "Ugly" Mannheim, kidnaps a handful of mad scientists and forces them to be apart of his Science Squad. His base of operations was on Ooglong Island. After Black Adam escaped, Chang Tzu was shot by Will Magnus. He later reappears in a new body, claiming "My third incubation ended four months ago" when questioned about his demise.

He reappears in a 2007 series, where a meta-humans special operations agency captured Nightwing and forced him to invade Ooglong Island. The teams arrive at the island but Sasha Bordeaux and Captain Boomerang are captured by Chang Tzu, and experiments on their meta-human capabilities. They were eventually saved, but the teams missions failed, and Egg Fu was not taken in.

Later in this series, it was learned that the Great Ten provide funding for Egg Fu's projects. He is briefly seen in a later issue where he is defeated by Power Girl and Wonder Woman, where he explains of his many incarnations.

New 52

Egg Fu's history was altered for the New 52 and becomes a recurring character in the Harley Quinn comic series. In this continuity, Egg Fu’s real name is Edgar Fullerton Yeung and once forced Poison Ivy to try and develop a potion that would get his landlord to like him so he can keep his apartment. However, Harley Quinn takes pity on Edgar and allows him to stay at her apartment block instead.

Dark Nights: Metal

The Chang Tzu incarnation of Egg Fu reappears during the Dark Nights: Metal event with other scientists to assist the Justice League in protecting the multiverse from the Dark Knights.
