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 »
I've been doing this for 15 years.
But not against the Hand.
I know. You're right. The Hand was a myth drummed into me. I've never met them face-to-face.
So, you're saying I have more experience fighting the Hand than you do?
Well, if you wanna get technical about it...

After watching Iron Fist, I am convinced that the only reason it received bad reviews before it EVEN PREMIERED was because of the fact that Danny Rand is a white man.
Yes, in the comics, Danny Rand is a white man. So in the show, Danny Rand is a white man, accordingly. Some people campaigned to have him played by an Asian actor. As a Mexican man let me tell you I consider this to be incredibly racist and hypocritical. Nobody complains when the very norse and very white Valkyrie in the Thor comics is played by a person of African descent. In fact, to even have a problem with that casting automatically makes you racist. People, you cant "white wash" a character who has always been white.
Problems? Every piece of work has them. But the pacing or action problems in Iron Fist were there too in JESSICA JONES and Luke CAGE. Media decided to let those series be because they featured a woman in an abuse survival story and a black urban man in a refreshing heroic and unabashedly positive role. I liked both of those series, and I LOVE Iron Fist. I've known the character since he popped up in the MAXIMUM CARNAGE event in Marvel Comics and I completely fell in love with the character upon reading IMMORTAL IRON FIST. As a die-hard fan, I absolutely approve and adore this series, if you are a fan, or you've enjoyed DAREDEVIL, JESSICA JONES and Luke CAGE, watch it.
Oh, and then sign on for some Kung Fu lessons (Ng Ga Kuen-style Kung Fu is the best!)
