There's less than a week before Iron Fist premieres on #Netflix, and we've been getting bombarded with all sorts of bad ju-ju concerning the show.
Just look at it:
- Marvel's Iron Fist Cultural Appropriation Casting Crisis Drives Finn Jones Off Twitter — What's Going On?
- The Critics Have Spoken On 'Iron Fist', And It's Far From A Knockout
- Iron Fist Casting: What's The Problem?
Okay, enough of this negativity!
For the better part of 100 years, #comicbooks have been supplying us with laughs, cries, and these kinds of moments:
I have faith that the Iron Fist series will be awesome, provided it doesn't go to...certain places. Here are six moments from the #IronFist comics that make us scratch our head and pray we don't have to relive them in the upcoming series.
6. What The Fiddle-Faddle?
Apparently, Marvel doesn't like cussing in their comics too much—or at least, #JessicaJones doesn't like hearing Luke swearing around their baby daughter so much. So, much unlike The Walking Dead comics, instead of s-bombs and f-bombs, we get fiddle-faddle and...however one would say “shit” nicely. If Iron Fist and Power Man ever team up on television, we really don't want to hear #LukeCage say the phrase “knick-knack-paddy-wack.”
5. Getting Racial Will Earn You A “Yo Mama”
Seriously, any list like this seems to eventually get all racial and not always in a great way. I guess it just comes with #comics from the good ole days. The original run of the Power Man and Iron Fist comics were definitely no exception.
4. Nope, They Aren't Going There Either
That panel pretty much says it all. And there ain't no way it's getting said in the show.
3. Maybe Storm Getting Potato Salad In The Face Would Work?
Apparently, the #XMen crash a party thrown by Iron Fist and it doesn't go well. All hell breaks out thanks to a fight, and Storm gets a bowl of potato salad catapulted into her face. Look at Nightcrawler. You know he's about to be like "NOPE" and BAMF right out of there. But this one might actually work!
2. Fanboys Getting Chairs To The Face
Luke Cage doesn't like fan boys. They creep him out. I'm not sure about Danny Rand's mask/business suit combo, either.
1. Iron Fist Punches A Demon Out Of Daredevil
This one right here. This had to be saved for the end. Instead of involving Luke Cage/Power Man, we get some #Daredevil action. There's a comic arc where Daredevil gets possessed by an actual demon (It's called "Shadowland" and it's actually pretty dope...but I digress.)
This gives Matt Murdock the power to suck the Hell-fire out of #GhostRider.
What do you do when your fellow crimefighter is possessed by a demon? You give him a superpunch to the chest, of course! Just like you did that pesky dragon all those years ago.
To hell with calling a priest, a fist to the torso will do the trick just fine. But let's leave the exorcisms to the horror genre, shall we?
Did you enjoy that enough to want some more WTF moments from some of your favorite #Marvel comic characters? Read on, and prepare to be dumbfounded:
