Some of my problems with Iron fist: Living Weapon
I really hope Secret Wars deletes 2014s Living Weapon: Rage and Redemption storyline by Kaare Andrews from whatever the timeline will be after all the universes “smash together” or whatever is happening.
Barely any of Danny Rands character traits or motivations which have developed the character over the years were even remotely touched upon. Focusing rather on his most overdone theme, his relationship with his parents, The same thing happened to Davos aka Steel Serpent, who was treated similarly, abandoning all character growth for no reason other than “shut up hes evil lets give him a metal robot tentacle arm”.
Strange that Danny and Davos are the only characters from Iron fist to really show up, (other then his parents and Shu-Hu the Lighting which deserve their own post/rant) plenty of classic characters are killed or just don’t show up and instead we get very one dimensional new characters that are meant fill in a very “Frank Miller” esque character roll.One of which from recent issues may infact turn into the next Iron fist, an interesting idea I wanted sooner or later but I would’ve preferred done much better.
There is one final issue left of the series which I’m of course gonna have to read because I want to know how Danny and Davos are going to be left before Secret wars, whether I dislike the series or not Iron fist is my favourite marvel character and this has been the first series were I have to reread several times to find something I enjoyed.
