He is Danny Rand, protector of the innocent and defender of K’un-Lun. With his incredible fighting prowess and chi-fueled skills, none can harm that which the Immortal Iron Fist protects!
Previously on Iron Fist: After a brief scuffle at the lair of the sinister Constrictor, Choshin and his men have started their conquest of the mystical city of K’un-Lun. Thankfully Iron Fist and Sabretooth are hot on their heels, ready to defend Danny’s adoptive home from these terrible villains. Will Danny and Creed manage to stop Choshin from taking over K’un-Lun? And will Creed get the revenge he desires on those who harmed the Constrictor? Keep reading to find out more, true believers!
Today’s Bone-Breaking issue: Choshin and his men have started their attack on K’un-Lun, confident that none can stand in their way of total domination. But it seems that K’un-Lun has a new leader/defender. While Danny continues on into the city to take down Choshin, Creed splits off to take down Choshin’s lieutenant The Rat of Twelve Plagues. Upon arriving at the fight between the city’s new leader and Choshin, Danny realizes that the fight cannot be won without more help. Grabbing the Book of the Iron Fist, Danny teleports away, seemingly with a plan in mind. What will be the fate of K’un-Lun and what could Danny’s plan be? Come back next issue to find out!
Personal Thoughts and Opinions: Honestly there’s not too much to talk about this time. Pretty much all of the issue is dedicated to fights between our heroes and Choshin’s forces. There are a few interesting moments involving a discussion on killing and Iron Fist’s place in the society of K’un-Lun, but for the most part the issue is just a big brawl. Thankfully the artwork is still very good, showcasing fun moments and pretty brutal looking moves. I’m curious to see what Danny has up his sleeve and hopefully K’un-Lun’s newest leader stays around for some development but overall there’s nothing much to make the issue standout on it’s own. Thankfully the action makes up for this in spades. Here’s hoping the conclusion to this arc is a good one.
