The HEROES FOR HIRE are back, baby!
Cage practically said as much in...

Immortal Iron Fist 18









Solid issue. Great cover. Good PrevPage(for quantity). Preferred the main art to the prelude art. But the proto-Jae-Lee style was too trying in spots. The layout/pacing was enjoyably energetic but a tad too scratchy.

Not clear if Ch'i-Lin is the name of the evil Master or this Servant that kills him. Still, it was a good set up to illustrate the trouble IF will face. A tad long, added to last issues sequence for the limited canon it provides.

-Really deserved his own name/time label like JUN and ORSON got.
-The tilted head butt seemed physically impossible or as hardly as dangerous as Danny's "OHHHH..." reaction implied.
-Danny's irreverant humor was great.
-Odd way to incorporate two 'teats' into the dialogue.
-Unfairly unclear of how many generations of Immortal Weapons this freaky monster has faced. Why study Danny's dad who was NOT an IF?
-Bronx Sucker Punch was a great moment added to the stylish martial moves.
-Not sure why his friends wouldnt include the Immortal Weapons Now but now matter 'cuz the Heroes For Hire are back, baby! \:D
-Liked their fight sequence and the 'heart' joke.
-What is this T-shirt logo?:
-Like the dragon border emblems but dislike their space hogging and wanting twotone contrast.
-Davos had a good interlude infodump but that did NOT look like Thunderer. Did he dump his traditional garb 'cuz he took up leadership??
-Misty is sexy here. Wing gets little face time and no 'juicy' dialogue(again).
-Patrick or Nadine is the spy is a safe bet.
-The answer-to-everything-Book should be destroyed before its too mishandled by writers like the Orb of Agamotto has become.

He's okay and was entertaining in his first arc but dont see the appeal he has that warrants a second special, let alone the first one. Drugs to SAVE his life is an odd storyline but will wait to see where that goes.

Batgirl too!Blaze too!Ororo too!
