They need to put Danny in some version of the iron Fist costume. In the Comics Danny fully embraces the idea of being a masked crime fighter. He wears this costume all the time, even when He and look are just chilling and getting a bite to eat at the local diner.


I personally loved how they solve that in Luck cage, when he wear his classic costume only in one scene after his escape. Point is that was a joke as he was forced to do that, but if someone did noticed him it could make it part of the urban legend.

I was disappointed by lack of similar scene in the Iron Fist show even if I totally get why they costumes aren’t that important for street level superheroes.

I think your version is excellent, and certainly an improvement over the one we got. I worry, however, that it would neglect some other themes that I felt were crucial to the arc of the series.

Clair is the netflix version of the Son of Coul

No Claire? Hell, no! She was the best thing in this series. You can ditch or downplay Colleen (as Jessica Henwick isn’t a very good actress – she isn’t as awful as Elodie Yung, but close), but Claire has to stay. My idea about a rewrite would be to start off with Danny in a mental hospital, telling parts of his story to the doctors. During the conversation, the doctors point out several ways in which the story doesn’t make sense, ending with the observation that if he had all these fantastical powers, why is he still here? The answer… Read more »
