IRON FIST Review: Part 2

iron fist excerpt Season 1, Episodes 5-8 – The second third of Iron Fist picks up a bit with the welcome inclusion of Claire Temple and the development of a few character arcs.

“Iron Fist” Isn’t Bad Because It’s Whitewashed, It’s Bad Because It’s Awful

Marvel's Iron FistEven before Iron Fist dropped its first 13 episodes to continue the Marvel saga of street heroes, the show was getting scrutinized for using a white actor to play the lead role — but in the Marvel comic created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane, he was white.
