OK, I take some issue with "happily adopted" applying to Lord Shen. Yes, he is adopted, but he is in no way happy.

Presumably the idea is that he was happy then and didn't the douchebag we know and love until later. Not that there's much going for that idea.

There seems to be some disagreement on the subject of Shen's upbringing. From what I gather, the supplemental material has his parents rejecting and neglecting him because he was born frail. However, no mention is made of this in the movie proper, where what little we see of his parents only shows them to be loving parents concerned about their violent son. Special mention is made of how much it hurt them to banish him, even. We also get no sign that Shen is particularly fragile by normal peacock standards.

I believe that's correct. The Official KFP 2 website used to say in Shen's profile that his parents neglected him for his albino status and fragility. This as well as a few other apparently defunct character details have been fixed on the site. In the movie proper I imagine Shen is about as sturdy as any peacock (I.E: Not very)

How is Shifu handicapped such that he qualifies for "Handicapped Bad Ass"? Age certainly doesn't seem to have slowed him down if that is what was meant...

Unless emotional handicaps count, I agree with Draco.
