True. But he also suggested he was better .
Well, the two actually fought recently in Iron Fist #7 when Shang-Chi is mind-controlled. During the fight, Iron Fist says that Shang-Chi is probably the only person on the planet who can beat him in a martial arts fight.
I think Danny would say he’s better.
Quote:Again, T'Challa himself is one of the best fighters in the Marvel universe, is one of the smartest men in the world, and is noted for being noble and honest. Who better could assess the relative skills of Danny and Shang-Chi? Again, T'Challa could be wrong, but there's no indication that's the case.
Quote:Not exactly, but in any case, what Iron Fist thinks to himself, that Shang-Chi is the only person on the planet who can, not equal Danny in a martial arts fight, but probably win is a more honest assessment than friendly banter between the two.
Both can be true. Danny can think he’s superior as well as acknowledging that Shang has a chance in defeating him too. Just means Danny needs to be on his A game if he’s going up against Shang-Chi. And as for the “one person in the world”.. did Danny forget about Shen Kuei or Master Izo? I could also see Gorgon, Fat Corbra, and Prince of Orphans defeating Danny but I can understand not taking them into account given their enhanced abilities.
Haven’t been reading Iron Fist in awhile but I’ve always liked the character. Given his upgrade from reading the IF Book, I’d write him as a type of Taskmaster character able to potentially mimic things Taskmaster couldn’t via his chi. Things like a chi radar sense, Mr X‘s precog sense, Foreigner’s hypnotism, Bulleye’s aim, Daken’s pheromone control, healing factor etc... if the Book is any good that is.
