Iron Fist 075 (2018)
It was... okay. But it may be my bad for having detracting questions that might skew my judgement of it...
Why is IF's costume green on the otherwise nice cover??!! (Sigh. Rhetorical question. Minor annoyance.)
Never read last issue and don't see it in the RECAP: What news of the caged dragon that was missing from Danny's apartment the issue before?
When/who replaced Viper with a male character in the Serpent Society?
Is this before or after Sabretooth's adventures in the Weapon X title's opening storyarc?
When/how did original Constrictor die?
Has dead Frank's old GF Sandy ever been seen/mentioned in any backissue?
What happened to "Frank Jr.'s" face?
Has the Book of Iron Fist ever been used to open a portal to K'un L'un in any backissue?
Wow. Marvel keeps compounding the lineage/canon of the mantle of Iron Fist. Now there was a ZHANG DI for 2 weeks, 600 years ago. Don't see him on Wiki https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Iron_Fist_%28comics%29. DOes anyone have a complete list of all the Iron Fists (bearers of Shou-Lao the Undying chi) that the readers should know at this point?
Did anyone else find the MEANINGLESS never to be endlessly random generated martial arts maneuvers to be awkwardly named? Not noun but not verb. Ugh.
So, Creed is still breaking character and doing more deeds of decency. Maybe some lingering Inversion residue? Whatever. He's there for the Q-Ratings grab. But is anyone impressed by Chosin as the other main guest star?
Marvel continues to mess with how the superpower of CHI works. (We're looking at you, Victor Alvarez! Didn't he tap Danny's Chi in the mini that introduced him? Then he was easily able to suck the NYC Chi no problem too.) Anyways, it looks like someone is draining Danny's individual Chi, right? And it is weakening him ala Kryptonite? But in the previous run in the Island Tourney didn't IF go around fit as a fiddle without his superpower Chi?
Was it an okay ish?

Rhetorical answer: Because it should be.
Quote:When/who replaced Viper with a male character in the Serpent Society?
Since the Cap:Sam series, but it's really the old Viper from 1970s Cap issues. Don't ask how he got living again. He was supposed to have been dead a long, long time ago. Blame the Final Incursion? Maybe.
Actually, this is assuming it's not a completely new Viper. He's dressed more like the other male Viper from about 5 years ago, who died.
But female Viper hasn't been a member for a long time (1980s, I think).
Quote:Is this before or after Sabretooth's adventures in the Weapon X title's opening storyarc?
Gonna say after. Who knows.
Quote:When/how did original Constrictor die?
He died from some illness in Cap:Sam. They didn't say what the illness was, but it was something to do with his lungs... maybe cancer, I guess. He didn't have any insurance, so Diamondback joined Serpent Solutions to get money for his treatments.
Quote:Has dead Frank's old GF Sandy ever been seen/mentioned in any backissue?
Don't remember Sandy. I thought this were her first mention ever. Honestly, I don't think Frank should be old enough to have such an old son.

Awkward means authentic.
