mythsandspaceships asked: What is it about Iron Fist that you love? Why do you have so much appreciation for him?
as a half asian man, I’ve always been particularly drawn to danny rand because he’s always struck me as a half asian man himself. sure, he’s a blonde white guy, but rarely in my experience does it come into play. he’s a rich business man with kung fu powers. also, something I’ve always particularly liked is that he isn’t a hugely stereotypical “person with yellow fever”. despite the origin of his powers and the visual imagery of his attire, he doesn’t blatantly try to “act” asian. he has adopted aspects of asian culture, but thats hard to avoid given how immersed he is in it. but he isn’t some guy who runs around talking about how great asians are or gets asian characters tattooed to him without knowing meaning etc etc. he had a literal trial by fire into asian culture, and its imprinted on him. so to me, he’s a half asian brother in arms.
hes also campy as hell. and i love it. a blonde rich kid who’s been given these fantastical powers and uses kung fu to protect people in the streets of New York? love it. I’m not excusing the whole “white savior”-ness of him in the slightest, it is an unfortunate trope he is part of, but in the very specific case of danny rand, i look past it.
and he’s also an incredibly positive character. he isn’t some dark and gritty fighter. he’s a jokester, he’s a glass is half full guy, without being the doofus that someone like parker or barton is. danny is a very by the books guy due to his being a business man and that his powers require a tremendous amounts of discipline, but he he still can enjoy himself in the thick of it.
