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.
Danny is the most powerful member of the Netflix Defenders team. Or at least, he has the greatest power potential. In addition to his mad kung fu skills, the uses for the chi of Shou-Lao could (and, in fact, do) fill an entire book, and the vast power it grants its wielders is ever-evolving. Even Danny hasn’t yet learned everything he’s capable of. Here are some of the highlights of what various Iron Fists have achieved over the years, and of what we might possibly see in the show.
We’re going to do a full analysis of the new Iron Fist trailer from NYCC, but this is so exciting that we had to do a separate post. We have almost definite confirmation of a second Immortal Weapon! For those unfamiliar with the comics, this is Bride of Nine Spiders, and she’s the champion of one of the capital cities of Heaven (just as the Iron Fist is for K’un-Lun). We’re unbelievably psyched to see her (and hopefully the rest of the Weapons!) in live action.
