 If I weren't so adverse to going AU with pups, it'd be tempting to use this rewrite of Iron Fist as milli-canon. So. Damn. Tempting.

Thinking about Danny Rand and the problems with Iron Fist I would need to address and fix if I were to play him in Milliways. Spoilers behind the cut.

tl;dr: Iron Fist has many problems and uses problematic tropes to tell its story. Among them are; All Asians are one, Mighty Whitey/White Savior, and a toxic portrayal of masculinity. Why would I chose to work with such a canon, even if I intend to fix the problems? Well, I’m a fan of the Iron Fist mythos and I love the sweet innocence Danny Rand has at his core.

 And Iron Fisy swings back to intriguing territory by actually addressing anger issues, and not just Danny's. They also revealed why he left K'un Lun and even why he chose to become the Iron Fist in the first place, and both reasons are good ones. Not proper or noble mind you, but good and reasonable.

And I was a little too pleased with Danny wearing Luke Cage's teeshirt for all of ep 11, given to him by Claire. I will laugh so much if the first story arc of Defenders or the catalyst that brings them together is Claire being kidnapped.

 Oh Danny, Danny, Danny...or should be saying that at the writers? The season started out so well with him...need I say spoilers?

And now I'm back to wanting to play with Danny a bit. I think it's now less deconstructing the Mighty Whitey and fixing canon's missteps, if I stick with playing him. I am going to stick with sandboxes.

I just love his innocent, I want to help the world because it's right. He's not doing this out of a sense of guilt or whatever. He's like the Flash/Super Girl of the MCU, though not quite so chipper.
