    That is a brilliant banner by Superman's Pal. Great use of that memorable ad and great job of making it board-centric.

Thanks! As I was searching Google for an Iron Fist pic I came across that ad and did a double-take because I hadn't seen it in 20 years but I sure did remember it. It was in a ton of my books growing up!

    I have a pretty good collection of Power Man and Iron Fist from around #'s 60-110. As a kid I loved Chemistro as Power Man 37 was among my first 50 comics and I enjoyed his storyline in the #90s. I remember the build up to #100 being better than that issue. I believe the female wolf character Fera was the villain. I think what I liked the most about the series was the friendship between street smart black Luke Cage and wealthy out of touch white Danny Rand. They had true respect and affection for each other and brought such different outlooks and skill sets to the table. It was a nice pairing that I remember surprised me when they teamed up.
    I also liked their friends: Misty Knight, Colleen Wing and DW Griffith.
    I don't think they had any great storylines but they did have enjoyable comics.

So you think the juxtaposition of Cage as black kid from the streets and Rand as white kid of privilege was the point of the team-up? Do you think casting an Asian to play Danny as suggested by the TV critics would have missed the point?
