Things may be looking up though since it appears that Marvel…

A New Power Man And Iron Fist Series in The Works

With the Luke Cage and Iron Fist Netflix shows just a little over a year away, it makes sense for Marvel to release a new series for them like what they did with Ant-Man. Although instead of making a series for the two individually, they’re making a team-up series for the two which will also a throwback to their first 1978 team-up series that eventually spawned the team known as Heroes for Hire. According to Fast Company, the new…

REVIEW: “Iron Fist #1” Reads Like a High Schooler’s Suicide Note

REVIEW: “Iron Fist #1” Reads Like a High Schooler’s Suicide Note

I did not like this comic. I have a deeper, more detailed opinion on why, but when I finished this book, it took me several minutes just to stop thinking about how much I didn’t like it. So I’ll just put that out on the table right away. I’ll also start by saying how disappointing this is to me. This was probably the All-New Marvel NOW! title I was most looking forward to, because Danny Rand is…
