Set a few months after the events of the second season of Daredevil, and a month after the events of Iron Fist, the vigilantes Daredevil, Jessica Jones, Luke Cage, and Iron Fist team up in New York City to fight a common enemy: The Hand.
Following the tragic end of her brief superhero career, Jessica Jones tries to rebuild her life as a private investigator, dealing with cases involving people with remarkable abilities in New York City.
When a sabotaged experiment gives him super strength and unbreakable skin, Luke Cage becomes a fugitive attempting to rebuild his life in Harlem and must soon confront his past and fight a battle for the heart of his city.
Spoiled billionaire playboy Oliver Queen is missing and presumed dead when his yacht is lost at sea. He returns five years later a changed man, determined to clean up the city as a hooded vigilante armed with a bow.
Danny Rand returns to New York City after being missing for years, trying to reconnect with his past and his family legacy. He fights against the criminal element corrupting his world around him with his incredible kung-fu mastery and ability to summon the awesome power of the fiery Iron Fist
The character of Iron Fist was introduced in 1974 in Marvel Premiere #15 by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane. This was around the same time the Kung Fu movie genre was rising due to the popularity of Bruce Lee (who passed away a year earlier). Iron Fist's philosophy parallels Lee's in that one must focus his/her mind (Lee famously said, "Empty your mind and be like water.") in order to control your body and power. An example of this is Bruce Lee's famous "One-Inch Punch" where he could generate explosive power from a punch traveling a short distance. Iron Fist performs a similar feat when he harnesses his Chi to also generate explosive power to get through tough obstacles. See more »
Rand commits numerous state level as well as federal offenses, including battery, breaking & entering, theft,kidnapping and passport fraud. Yet by the last episode, he is stated to "only" be facing assault charges against the DEA agents who came to raid Colleen Wing's studio.
Even being a billionaire, it's a virtual certainty that his crimes wouldn't have been "forgotten" by the authorities, much less "forgiven." See more »
Great part of Netflix marvel series but with something different (No Spoilers)
As there are similar elements from the previous Netflix marvel series, Iron fist is still very unique. Great casting and character development keeps the story intriguing. The story isn't explained in the first few episodes keeping you wanting to watch more. Iron Fist isn't the only developing character in this series that you want to know more of. There is significant amount of answers and plot points that connect the other marvel series that make this a fun watch.
