Quote:So in Iron Fist #7, Iron Fist fights a mind-controlled Shang-Chi. Interestingly, Iron Fist says that Shang-Chi is probably the only person on the planet who can beat him in a martial arts fight. At first Shang-Chi is winning but Iron Fist is holding back and Danny decides he can't hold back if he's going to survive. Then the battle becomes basically even. After the fight ends when Iron Fist ko's the mind controller, Shang-Chi, who has come to his senses and is not one for bragging, states that he fared the better of the two in the fight. The issue comes pretty close to saying Shang-Chi is the more skilled of the two.
Danny did dispute that immediately thereafter to be fair. That bit came across to me like jokey banter between friends rather than a serious comment about who was winning (although I've got no problem with the idea of Shang being more skilled than Danny, not sure how I'd assess it myself as I've never been overly invested in either character).
