LEVEL ELEVENTY-SEVEN #111: Kicking It With IRON FIST

Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. returns next week, which gives us this one shot to discuss the latest Netflix offering from Marvel Television: Iron Fist. And judging by the mixed reception its had, this could very well be Marvel’s first not-quite-miss since the first season of S.H.I.E.L.D.

Marvel’s Iron Fist

From off-balance pacing to a bland lead character to cultural appropriation to missed social cues, the show really doesn’t seem to know just what kind of show it wants to be. Is it an origin story for a rich kid learning to be a superhero? Is it about a wealthy socialite learning how to be social? Is it a prelude to The Defenders and just a setup piece? Is it all of these, or none of these?

Short answer: yes and no.

WARNING: HERE BE SPOILERS

The panel: Mindy Inlow, Sam Sentman, Chris Jensen, Timothy Harvey, Jason Hunt
