    But Why Tho? - William Tucker Aug 31, 2022

    Iron Fist #5 cements a new legacy. As the arc comes to a close, it does feel like Lin Lies confidence within himself has grown, especially after the Shao-Lao discussion. That transformation from the man in pain to this fighter in control has been a remarkable journey to follow, even if it feels like a few levels were skipped. It has also been an awesome martial arts/fantasy series full of energy, and intensity. Iron Fist continues into A.X.E., but I really hope this isnt the last of his own series. Read Full Review

    It could have used another issue to slow things down and give things some time to breathe but all in all, a formidable ending for a solid Iron Fist story. Read Full Review

    Weird Science Marvel Comics - mrgabehernandez Aug 31, 2022

    Final Thoughts:Iron Fist #5 ends the arc without ending the story, and that sentiment exemplifies the series so far. The story is just there. Some confusing bits are clarified, new confusion is introduced, and the ending isn't really an ending. The art is solid, but the story, so far, has yet to justify the Iron Fist mantle swap or its own existence. Read Full Review

    Not bad, but it's weird that Danny is more interesting in the few panels he is in than the current Iron Fist.

    A fun issue where a plot point is spoiled by the damn cover.
    Can't say I'm fully engaged with what's happening here but I adore the artwork.

    It annoys me to no end that Danny was stripped off his powers and reduced to “the guy from the subway” just to make way for a new “Asian Iron Fist”.

    I really don’t like the writer choosing Swordmaster as his pet project. Lin Lie was chosen for the Sacred sword, was chosen by Shao Lao to inherit the iron fist… if he was a female he’d be called a Mary Sue. And I wouldn’t argue it

    The worst part is Danny already had a student- Pei. Now the girl was reduced to being a background character. Where are the feminists fighting this?!

    Overall: I like the story, but hate the agenda behind it
