Danny Rand is back for a second round as Iron Fist, only this time, someone is out to steal his superpowers. If Iron Fist 1 was a 5 on 10, the second helping of the series is definitely a major improvement over its predecessor. We’ve screened the first five episodes of the show and it’s definitely grittier than before. The series throws back to the time Danny spent training as the Iron Fist in the mystical K'un-Lun mountains. We see a lot more of Misty Knight in the series as Rand continues to battle street thugs and criminals after the alleged death of Matt Murdock (Daredevil) in The Defenders. Overall, the acting and action has improved greatly this time around, but we would still deem Daredevil the best protagonist to date in Netflix’s entire portfolio of Marvel shows.
