On Thursday, Marvel revealed a teaser for Iron Fist showing Danny Rand giving up the Iron Fist costume. The teaser simply said, “Iron Fist No More. February 2022.” Today, the comic book giant has announced writer Alyssa Wong and artist Michael YG will debut a new Iron Fist this February. Wong, of course, is coming off the critically-acclaimed Doctor Aphra, while YG will make his Marvel Comics debut with Iron Fist.
The new series consists of five issues and sees the legendary mantle of Iron Fist get passed on to a new hero in a “revolutionary transformation.” Per Marvel, fans can expect an epic hero’s journey in true Marvel fashion as this new, mysterious Iron Fist unlocks “long-hidden secrets behind the history of his ancient powers.” He’ll also be forced to confront a threat only he is able to defeat.
After giving up his power to save the world earlier this year in IRON FIST: HEART OF THE DRAGON, Danny Rand believes he’s seen the last of the Iron Fist. But when demons begin to attack cities around the world, a new hero appears, hands blazing with the Chi of Shou-Lao the Undying! 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? Fans will have to wait until the first issue to discover his identity but they can see him now on the stunning cover for IRON FIST #1 showcasing a brand-new costume design by superstar artist Jim Cheung!
The first issue of Iron Fist #1 will hit shelves on Feb. 16, 2022. It’s written by Alyssa Wong with art by Michael YG. It also features a cover by Jim Cheung.
