The last season of Iron Fist is almost over, as a few pieces slide around and some unlikely alliances are made. We’re building up to the big showdown we know is coming, and the various other plots are heading for their dramatic conclusions as well.
Iron Fist continues recycling titles from the comics in their second season. In this case, “Morning of the Mindstorm” comes from Marvel Premier 25. The titles seem to have a tenuous connection at best to what actually happens in the episode, as is the case here.
Iron Fist’s second season continues with “The Dragon Dies at Dawn.” This, as with the other titles this season, is borrowed from an earlier comic; in this case, Iron Fist 9 from 1976. We see Danny dealing with his loss, an attempted family reconciliation, and Davos working on his own list but only needing to check it once.
Iron Fist hits the halfway point of the season with “Heart of the Dragon.” Again borrowing titles, this is from a comic back in 1974 which was Iron Fist’s second appearance. It shows the aftermath of last episode’s ritual, and our hero has a really bad day.
Several years ago, Marvel paired with Netflix for some really great shows.
The fourth episode of Iron Fist’s second season is “Target: Iron Fist,” originally used for Danny’s own comic back in 1977 (Issue 13). The episode uses a trope I’m getting really sick of: a dramatic opening scene and then rewinding to see how we got there.
Continuing this season’s tradition of reusing titles, “This Deadly Secret” came from Power Man and Iron Fist 99, back in 1983. The triad issues inch forward, Danny gets told some confusing things, and Colleen makes a few discoveries of her own.
