- 1000 Suns

Ma "1000 Suns" Shen is a Chinese APA general who was to appear in the cancelled Command & Conquer. He serves as the atomic/nuclear warfare general, effectively making him the successor to Tsing Shi Tao.


Ma Shen was raised in unusual circumstances; his great-grandfather witnessed the US nuclear strike on Nagasaki and in turn was instilled with a terror of atomic weapons. Returning to his native China, he retreated to a bunker deep in the wilderness where he and his descendants would raise their families. By the time of Shen's birth, the bunker expanded into a large underground complex. Raised and schooled there, he inherited the absolute terror of nuclear warfare that had so blighted his family. As he reached adulthood, he realized he could no longer be ruled by his terror and set out to embrace, applying to serve in the first APA Atomic Warfare Division. The military choose to overlook Shen's obvious psychological issues and accepted him into the corps. Fifteen years later, Shen mastered his fear and now leads the Atomic Warfare group. His great-grandfather, he believes, would be proud.

  • The general's nickname comes from the term 'as bright as a thousand suns', a description of the nuclear bombings of Hiroshima and Nagasaki in 1945 as told by its survivors.
  • Part of the general's backstory could be a reference to the 1999 comedy film Blast from the Past.
