Iron Fist Is No Longer Danny Rand

A new Iron Fist is introduced to the Marvel Universe this February.

This February will mark a new beginning for Iron Fist. Award-winning writer Alyssa Wong will team up with artist Michael YG in the new issue. The five-issue limited series will see the legendary mantle of Iron Fist passed on to a new hero. It will be a revolutionary transformation of one of Marvel’s most fascinating mystical mythologies. 

This mysterious character will unlock long-hidden secrets behind the history of his ancient powers and confront a threat that only he can defeat!

After giving up his power to save the world earlier this year in HEART OF THE DRAGON, Danny Rand believes he’s seen the last of the Iron Fist. But when demons begin to attack cities worldwide, a new hero appears, hands blazing with the Chi of Shou-Lao the Undying! So who is this new Iron Fist? And does his power really come from the Dragon of K’un-Lun… Or from something far more sinister? Unfortunately, fans will have to wait until the first issue to discover his identity.

“It’s an incredible honor to introduce a new Iron Fist to the Marvel Universe. I’m excited to delve into the comic’s rich mythos and build on it. What does it mean for someone to take up the mantle of the Iron Fist right now, today? As a newcomer, how does one interact with legacy, and how does one honor it while forging a new path? I’m so stoked to work with artist Michael YG, colorist Jay Ramos, and the rest of the incredible team on this book. And writing this character, who views things through fresh eyes, feels very special to me.”
