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.
“From out of the most secret corners of its bad instincts, Christianity has waged a deadly war on every feeling of respect and distance between people. It has used the ressentiment of the masses as its main weapon against us and everything on earth that is noble, joyful, and magnanimous. Granting ‘immortality’ to every Tom, Dick, and Harry has been the biggest and most vicious attempt to assassinate noble humanity.”
—F. Nietzsche, The Anti-Christ, §43 (edited excerpt).
