The "Iron Fist" comic book series was originally inspired by the success of the Kung Fu (1972) television series. The hidden land of K'un L'un was inspired by various stories, including James Hilton's "Lost Horizon" and tales of Tibet. Much of the original series was inspired by the Golden Age Centaur Comics character Amazing Man, who was a westerner who gained super abilities while studying in a hidden Tibet-like land. Amazing Man, as his civilian identity of John Aman, was added to "Iron Fist" continuity in the "Immortal Iron Fist" series. See more »
Rand commits numerous state level as well as federal offenses, including battery, breaking & entering, theft,kidnapping and passport fraud. Yet by the last episode, he is stated to "only" be facing assault charges against the DEA agents who came to raid Colleen Wing's studio.
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...

I hoped the second season would fix the show, but instead, they added bad writing to make the show even worse than before. Generally speaking, if you are looking for an action Sci Fi with a good story, then Iron Fist is not the answer.
