-THE TROUBLE WITH IRON FIST

Two issues in, Iron Fist: The Living Weapon has been an interesting story told well. Unfortunately this version of Danny Rand does not fit with the Danny Rand I enjoy reading: a man who can feel aloof because on top of being a cool dude he is a centered zen master, and because his power is so great that his day to day life doesn’t need him to make an fist, iron or not. Kaare Andrews’ serious and tight-wound Rand feels as off as a Spider-Man story built around depression and death…which exists, and is called Spider-Man: Reign. And it was quite good. And written by Kaare Andrews. Which is why I’m giving this Iron Fist story a great deal of leeway; it can get by on its looks for a few more issues if the story catches up in time.
