Iron Fist vs Shang-Chi

Article by Gregg Katzman. Unless you strongly disagree with this list, then it definitely isn’t by Gregg.

To celebrate Marvel and Netflix’s new Iron Fist show and the new Iron Fist comic series (by Ed Brisson and Mike Perkins), we’re going to list some of the other top hand-to-hand combatants in the Marvel Universe! Obviously, the Marvel Universe is a biiiiiiig place and it’s full of talented fighters, so some of your favorites may not appear below. Seriously, we’d have dozens and dozens of names on an “honorable mentions” list – Moon Knight, Deadpool, Taskmaster, so on and so on! If you feel like there’s a Marvel character who deserves some extra respect, give them some love in the comments – feel free to make reading recommendations to your fellow fans, too!

In the meantime, let’s prepare for the movie by reading some comics that Logan appears to be loosely inspired by, and other comics that just might one day serve as inspiration for an X-23 movie!
