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.
In Superman #30, Sinestro fights a Superman possessed by Parallax. He lures Superman/Parallax into a trap where Qward warriors knock him out by throwing their thunderbolts at him. This is a pretty poor showing for either Superman or Parallax, much less the two of them combined. Then, when Parallax leaves Superman's body, Sinestro singlehandedly fights Parallax for hours. I didn't read the previous issue so don't have the full context, but if there were no contingencies, Parallax now looks herald level.
Again, Danny should be THE most skillked fighter on marvel earth, as he is supossed to the living weapon of his immortal city, and best of the best!
And Superman showing was really not designed to gauge relative power levels, but to set the tome for a contrast of wills and goals between him and Sinestro concrning paraalex!
