Iron Fist needs his own thread. He is getting a new book in November, written by Brubaker and Fraction, with art by David Aja.

Newsarama has an interview from Wizard World Chicago, wherein Brubaker and Fraction get me really excited to read the book.

THE IMMORTAL IRON FIST #1
tiironfist001coverrgbjj0cd6.th.jpg

Written by ED BRUBAKER AND MATT FRACTION
Pencils and Cover by DAVID AJA
Many years ago, in the mystical city of Kun’ Lun, young Danny Rand stared at a suit behind glass -- the garb of “the Immortal Iron Fist” -- and knew that he was destined to wear it. But where did this costume come from? Why did it wait for Danny all those years like a shadow of his future?
The answer to those questions will stun both him and his readers, as Danny Rand leaps from the pages of his breakout hit in DAREDEVIL to his own series - a history-spanning kung-fu epic that will shatter every perception of what it means to be the Immortal Iron Fist! Brought to you by top-ten writer Ed Brubaker and breakout talent Matt Fraction (Punisher War Journal), with action-packed art by David Aja (Daredevil, Giant-Size Wolverine).

Written by ED BRUBAKER AND MATT FRACTION
Penciled by DAVID AJA and TRAVEL FOREMAN
Cover by DAVID AJA
Orson Randall, the only man who holds all the answers to Danny Rand's questions about the legacy of the Iron Fist, is being hunted by the reincarnated reinvigorated, and always wicked Steel Serpent. Hydra, manipulated by an ancient evil they're only beginning to understand, is in the process of dismantling the Rand corporate empire. Both events have been facilitated by a betrayal from within, and both events might spell the end of the mystical city of K'un L'un once and for all.
This is the final chapter of "The Last Iron Fist Story." Surely nothing terrible or tragic will happen, right?

IMMORTAL IRON FIST #7

Written by ED BRUBAKER & MATT FRACTION
Pencils and Cover by TRAVEL FOREMAN
Her name was Wu Ao-Shi, and she was known as the Pirate Queen of Pinghai Bay...and that all came after she left K'un-Lun and took the power of the Iron Fist with her. Kicking her way out of the pages of THE IMMORTAL IRON FIST #2, this stand-alone issue tells the story of Wu Ao-Shi, from the moment she became the first woman to touch the heart of Shou-Lao the Undying, to her mysterious, controversial and epic ending. At long last, America: someone has combined pirates, kicking, girls, and Iron Fist into a single comic book. You're welcome.

    Does anyone else think Iron Fist's crotch is like, really elongated on that third cover? It looks really.. weird.

    I'm really looking forward to this though, despite having read very little of the character.

    He does seem kind of elongated. Whole body slightly elongated. A stylistic thing, I guess. Also, the belts make it seem longer than normal, I bet. I enjoyed it enough to make it a wallpaper.



    Not his elongated groin, but the picture, you guys

    Casanova left me flat after the first few issues, but I dig Five Fists of Science so hard, and what I've seen of Fraction's new Punisher looks cool.

    Fraction and Brubaker makes reading this a no-brainer.

    It should also be said that the Iron Fist costume is badass.

    Pac Man's character is difficult to explain even to the Japanese -- he is an innocent character. He hasn't been educated to discern between good and evil. He acts more like a small child than a grown-up person. Think of him as a child learning in the course of his daily activities. If someone tells him guns are evil, he would be the type to rush out and eat guns. But he would most probably eat any gun, even the pistols of policemen who need them.

    Man, I wasn't even gonna bother with this book. Then I read that Brubaker was writing. That was all I needed to hear; it's now on my pull list at the LCS.

    For serious, chopsocky action + that noir stuff that Brubaker does = massive win. I just hope they redesign that fucking lame suit of his.

    Looks like a world war two Iron Fist. Perhaps some retconning is in order here, making the Iron Fist indentity something like The Phantom? Someone always in costume, throughout the ages or something.

    In Wizard # 182, there is a page called Iron Fistory. It features some of the Iron Fists throughout the ages:

    [spoiler:df87ced267] Danny Rand-- current-- Bru says "he is a fascinating character... almost like the Shadow... really going to dig into his history, the history of the rand fortune, and have him come face to face with his ghosts. when he comes out the other side, he is going to be a richer character for it"

    Orson Randall 1900-1933-- possibly the first western Iron Fist, ww1 vet who wandered the globe

    Bei Bang-Wen 1827-1860-- "a legendary rebel impervious to blade and bullet, last seen engaging in single combat a regiment of soldiers sweeping the Taku Forts on the shores of the Pei Tang"

    Wu Ao-Shi-- 1517-1550-- "most pirates have hooks and peg legs. this one has a fist of iron and the power to level mountains. The Pirate Fist of Pinghai Bay, this wild woman warlord of the waters once destroyed an armada 3000 strongthat dared incur on her oceans, says Fraction. Ever seen a Chinese pirates' vessel? Ever seen three-dozen of them, set on fire? It's pretty sweet."

    Bei Ming-Tian-- every story needs a beginning and this one is no different, thought it will be as big and intense as everything else planned for the series. The first Iron Fist we meet-- literally says Fraction. First issue opens with him facing down invading Ghengis Khan's Mongols.[/spoiler:df87ced267]
