    1. Fun Fact: The first Iron Fist story I ever read was an issue of Marvel Team-Up pitting Spider-Man, Daredevil, Moon Knight, Power Man, and Iron Fist against the Purple Man.1 - Danny Rand turns down a billion dollar deal with China and goes to investigate the Chinese investors as Iron Fist!This was a solid way to kick off a new ongoing Iron Fist series, lots of Kung Fu, lots of intrigue, lots of HYDRA. I think the idea that there have been many Iron Fists throughout history gives the character som [...]


    2. I picked this up because I really enjoy a lot of Brubaker and Fraction's work. Given that I didn't know anything about Iron Fist before I picked up the book, I think it was a success. By the end I was interested in the character, and eager to pick up the next trade to find out what happened with the rest of the story. Plus he was fighting nazis in the book. You can't really go wrong with that.


    3. The past and present of the Iron Fist is on display, but what does the future hold.The Iron Fist's have a long and violent history and The Last Iron Fist story covers much of that history in a shallow fashion. The present story involves Danny Rand trying to protect his company from some Chinese business he just can't seem to trust. Neither story really gripped me.I was hoping to find something interesting and unique with Iron Fist, but unfortunately it's very familiar which isn't what I was hopi [...]


    4. I’m a huge fan of Matt Fraction and David Aja’s multi-Eisner Award-winning Hawkeye series so when I saw an earlier book they’d done together - with Ed Brubaker, no less! - I jumped at it. That said, having read Immortal Iron Fist Vol 1 just a couple of days ago, I’m really struggling to remember what the book was about - and I’m not sure I had such a great handle on it while I was reading it in the first place! This might be partly because I have no history with the Iron Fist character [...]


    5. Wow, I wasn't expecting *quite* that much story packed into the first volume! Color me very pleasantly surprised.I mean, we've got hints as to Danny's creation, the fact that he's the 66th of his line, that he has the powers of a vast cosmological dragon running through his veins, and that that fist of his does a ton more than just explode bad guys. It mesmerizes, too! Cool!Oh, yeah, and his cowardly predecessor who should be dead shows up and decides to give himself the fateful sendoff that all [...]


    6. I expected to really enjoy this because I love the Fraction/Aja team so much, and Brubaker is also good. But that didn't really happen here. The storytelling style and chronology became a little hard to follow (especially since I'm an Iron Fist noob, this being my first experience with him). The artwork was great, of course. The characters were slightly interesting, but I wasn't as into Danny Rand as I expected to be. The plot fell kind of flat for me, not necessarily feeling very compelling or [...]


    7. Ah the familiarity of Fraction and Aja! Plus, Brubaker!Okay, I decided to start reading this because the Netflix series starts in less than a month and I know next to nothing about Iron Fist. I wasn't all that intrigued at first but it's research. Which reminds me, I need to read more about Luke Cage.The story begins with Danny Rand refusing to do business with a Chinese corporation, Wai-go (actually Hydra) who then later try to kill him. Enter Luke to the rescue (with Chinese take out)! Through [...]


    8. Yup. This works.Fraction and Aja (Hawkguy bro) AND Brubaker? Solid crew. Hollingsworth on colours? This is an A-Team.Danny discovers there's another Iron Fist alive, actually his predecessor, Orson Randall, who reveals truths to him and seeks to redeem himself for past mistakes. There are similarities between the two men, and Danny eventually buys in.Hydra is after Rand Corp and Iron Fist, and it's time to make a stand. Features Luke Cage and Misty Knight in support too.Pretty solid, Iron Fist i [...]


    9. Iron Fist is a character that's been around for a long time, but until now no writer has managed to give him a personality or reasonable motivation (after all, the revenge backstory that started his comic series was resolved within the first few issues). He's always been defined by the people around him (Power Man or the Daughters of the Dragon) and his "superpower" was absurdly one-trick (a one shot punch, always delivered when he was on the brink of defeat).This series has the daunting task of [...]


    10. Beware The Iron Fist! So like many of the oddball comics I've read of late, it's because there making an iron fist Tv series so this is research! So this story we have Danny Rand, a billionaire who fights crim (Wait a minute where have I Heard of this before? Batman, Iron Man, Green Arrow lol) But no that's actually the best part he doesn't use money to fight crime, just his Kun Fu, which was a nice addition, at least it's original, being a billionaire is more his Day job. But you don't need to [...]


    11. I forgot how powerful Iron Fist is!Great stories. Gets deep into Iron Fist's history. An Iron Fist will guns? I will bmp need to check out Vol 2.


    12. thefoundingfields/2013/07/Writers: Ed Brubaker, Matt Fraction | Art: David Aja | Publisher: Marvel Comics | Collects: Immortal Iron Fist: #1-6Many years ago, in the mystical city of Kun’ Lun, young Danny Rand stared at a suit behind glass – the garb of the “Immortal Iron Fist” – and knew that he was destined to wear it. But where did this costume come from? Why did it wait for Danny all those years like a shadow of his future? The answer to those questions will stun both him and his re [...]


    13. I quite enjoyed Iron Fist, and I'm surprised that even Brubaker, Fraction, and Aja were able to breathe life into such an "uncool" superhero as Iron Fist. I love the action and hand-to-hand combat in the series. The series maintains some of its camp as a sort of tongue-in-cheek, self-deprecating homage to the original, for instance through the cheeky comments from the Danny's afroed black ex-girlfriend (novel when the character first appeared in the 1970s) making a crack about loving her teammat [...]


    14. Read this review and more on my blog.I was browsing the store when I found this available for free (it was free when I got it on December 30th 2016), so of course I had to get it! A new character for me to dive into, I could not wait.Now it is no secret in my family that I have a bias for DC over Marvel, the main reason being I grew up with DC not Marvel. When I started reading comic books, the first comic book that I seriously read was Old Man Logan, not Batman like I expected. So I do try and [...]


    15. So this is not a book to jump into with no knowledge of the Iron Fist or Marvel's Civil War. I had a tiny bit of knowledge about each and that got me through but it took me a while to figure it out. That being said story was still interesting if a bit confusing. I am wishing that there are some books out there on the previous Iron Fists though I think it's unlikely. You can absolutely see Iron Fist's roots in the 70s kung fu craze, but I think the characters update was pretty good (of course I n [...]


    16. After reading all of Brubaker's Captain America run, this feels like a knock-off of the whole epic, history-spanning story arc we saw there. Other than that tho, Fraction brings these characters to life with modern, natural-sounding (and funny) dialogue, and the action is suitably fluid and compelling in the art.


    17. Solid art with a (slightly) confusing plot line that keeps the action front and center.I do concede that I might have been confused due to my utter lack of knowledge when it comes to this particular character, but I wonder what a casual reader (someone intersted after watching the Netflix show) will make of all the background elements that are included, from Heroes for Hire to the Civil War.


    18. This is one of those stories that doesn't make you feel like you need to know more about the character or that you are missing something. Brubaker creates a solid story in a style that generates an experience that maximizes the use of a limited page count. An excellent stand alone trade - highly recommended.


    19. I have no idea what's going on but I desperately want a comic series about that lady Iron Fist. Like, they keep rebooting everything instead of making a series about 1545 AD Wu Ao-Shi pirate lady Iron Fist? WHAT THE CRAP


    20. First time read Iron Fist,and very interesting. It was cool seeing the different ones throughout time,and explaining how he became the Iron Fist.


    21. FREE TODAY ON COMIXOLOGYI had never even heard of Iron Fist before, but after reading this I'll definitely keep reading it.



    22. So confused have I been by the suckfest that is the Iron Fist Netflix show, I found myself wondering: what is the point of this character? What is supposed to be so cool about him?I think that the one thing the MCU has almost always gotten right is demonstrating why you should like a bunch of characters whose comics you've never read. I really can't think of one Marvel protagonist I haven't found more charming after watching their respective movie or show -- in fact, with the Netflix series', I' [...]


    23. Iron Fist: Endspiel erschien nach dem Erfolg der Netflix Serien nun endlich auf deutsch und ist der Auftakt der neuen Reihe um Luke Cages besten Freund Danny Rand. Er ist der aktuelle Kung-Fu-Champion von Kun-Lun und seine Geschichte spielt hier direkt nach den Ereignissen von Civil War. Nebenher Konfrontation mit Hydra muss sich Danny Rand auch der Geschichte der Iron Fists stellen und somit auch seiner eigenen Vergangenheit. Dafür gibt es immer wieder Szenen, die andere Iron Fists aus der Ver [...]


    24. When Daniel Rand was nine years old, his father Wendell Rand took him, his mother Heather, and business partner Harold Meachum on an expedition to the mystical city of K’un L’un, which appears in the mountains of China only once every ten years. When Danny slipped into a crevasse, endangering his parents, Meachum, who was in love with Heather, treacherously murdered Wendell. Heather refused to go with Meachum, and continued onward with her son. They came across a bridge that hadn’t been th [...]


    25. Ahora que el hype por la serie de Netflix "Iron Fist" está por las nubes, he decidido volver a leer una de las etapas que más me gustan de Danny Rand :3 Este primer tomo puede ser un poco introductorio y no atrae tanto, pero no puedo esperar a leer las batallas de las armas inmortales >.<


    26. I wondered if the comic book would be better than the show. The answer? I think so, but it still didn't grab me enough to make me rush out and get the next volume. The appearance of the Heroes for Hire sparked my interest, though. Maybe I'll try one of those.


    27. Read the full review at The Books in My Life!Before I dawn the critical lenses, note that I do not believe all stories need to have a social edginess to them in order to be meaningful. Also note that I won’t be able to help myself in unfairly comparing this print series to its Netflix counterparts, which is peaches to plums. That being said, the fact that Jessica Jones featured a super-powered heroine rendered helpless in the wake of rape-induced PTSD and Luke Cage featured a black hero donnin [...]


    28. While I always have a soft spot for any of Marvel's B-list "street level" heroes, I have really warmed to Luke Cage and Iron Fist lately. I get jazzed any time they make an appearance, and I'm sure it's due to Brian Bendis and his spot-on characterization of them over the last few years in "New Avengers."Building off of that exposure, Brubaker and Fraction have created an outstanding solo book and possibly the best new title Marvel launched this year. We get a deeper look than ever before at Dan [...]


    29. This is a pretty cool book. I'm familiar with the street level heroes at Marvel except for Iron Fist. I wanted to get an idea of who he was before the Netflix show starts. Basically he's a cross between Batman and Daredevil but with magical Kung fu powers and a long lineage of Iron Fists. I love old Kung fu movies so his character was really appealing to me. The mythology behind him with k'un l'un and shou Lao and the brief glimpses of old Iron Fists was pretty interesting too. Some issues I had [...]
