Iron Fist has long been a favorite Marvel Comics character of mine.  I first began reading about Iron Fist in the classic 1980's run of Power Man & Iron Fist by Marvel Comics.  During the 2000's, both Luke Cage and Iron Fist have had a lot more opportunities for solo stories including, what I think is the seminal run of Iron Fist, The Immortal Iron Fist.

There have been some clunkers, for sure, along the way and recently, Iron Fist has been re-teamed with Luke Cage again in the comic books.  However, the character is getting it's own Netflix series soon which should open up a lot of new possibilities for the martial arts themed character.

There have been three versions of the Iron Fist 3.75 Inch character, so far.  The first is the Immortal Iron Fist version.  Later, the figure was released single carded in the white & gold version and yet again as a two pack with Luke Cage (Power Man) in his classic costume version.  The classic costume is my favorite, though I'm not wild about the up-flowing tassel on the back of his mask, obviously done in order to avoid the high collar.

The immortal version's biggest criticism is that he does not feature a closed fist which, of course, makes it difficult to imagine the characters one real "super power" the "Fist Like unto a thing of iron".  The criticism of the classic costume is the up-flowing tassel.  The white version is just basically a repaint of the immortal version except they wisely changed one hand to a closed fist.

the dragon paint application looks nice on all three versions.  i do wish the immortal version had the waist sash and a closed fist on one hand.  all in all, however, these are beautiful action figures.
