    So, last issue the Ten Rings get a mention, and now she fights guys with superhuman martial arts abilities who talk about how, "the wellspring of power, beyond your comprehension, flows through us." A reference to chi-mysticism, maybe? And who have teleportation technology.

Could it tie into the Wellspring of Power from Fabian Nicieza's New Warriors and New Thunderbolts runs?

The Wellspring of Power (aka Well of All Things aka Temple of the Dragon's Breadth cult) was like a pencil thin beam that pierced numerous dimensions and the energy rushed out of points around the globe. Silhouette's maternal grandmother/Night Thrasher's legal guardian Tai was planning on sacrificing the New Warriors to the wellspring to absorb the rush of power released from the well. This whole plot was the reason Night Thrasher's parents were killed by Tai and Silhouette's father Chord.

The New Warriors storyline was about a well in Cambodia but the Thunderbolts storyline had Grandmaster and Zemo's teams finding other wells in Japan and Turkey. In the Thunderbolts story Zemo was able to use the power from the Wellspring to access the powers of every being on earth I think.

The well gave Tai a lot of powers including teleportation, crimson bands of cyttorak, super speed, force fields etc.

(Tai should be retconned as Mandy's idea I think I'm stealing from Grey Gargoyle)
