Satisfy Iron Fists, Marvel's Debatable " Billionaire New York Buddhist Monk Martial Arts Superhero" (Updated)

Theres no shortage of Buddhist (or pseudo-/quasi-Buddhist) comic game characters. Theres the White Lama, the Green Lama, Wolverine, and even Spider-Man, Deadpool, and Batman too experienced their Buddhist manifestations, if perhaps in one-shots. One qualifying character whos come and gone more often than once is now again: Iron Closed fist, who first appeared in year 1974 and will now be getting his own just-announced collection (starring Sport of Throness Finn Jones) on Netflix.
So who is usually Iron Fists? Hes Danny Rand. So whos that? As the show-to-bes showrunner places it in a new Marvel report, Danny Rand is a very complex character. He is a billionaire New York Buddhist monk fighting techinques superhero whoms still trying to puzzle out what exactly that all means. His / her powers in addition to training are mystical or to put it one other way, theyre a bit of a mish-mash associated with real in addition to imagined understandings of chihuahua and other actually Eastern principles. His martial-arts training is learned, simply, to help him or her avenge his / her mothers loss of life after a journey with his wealthy parents to a mystical land.
How Buddhist is this individual, really? Its hard to state. I remember absconding with my uncles Iron Closed fist comics when I was a small kid, nevertheless all Going is the pseudo-mystical Kung Fu flavor, that was popular in those days, and found consist of comics just like Doctor Strange.
[Update: In the original version of this post, I had written here, It will be fun to see whats in store for the 2016 reboots of both characters. But as insightful reader Kate Goka commented on our Facebook post about this article: Yet outside of (white) Buddhist circles, there were a lot of questions about how Iron Fist would be represented. Please inform yourself on all the problems with this character and the reboot. This is a really deep issue tied to a lot of suffering. Kate then provided a link to an article called Why Iron Fist Needs to Be Asian American, Not a White Savior Cliche, which talks about the character as yet another manifestation of a tired old trope and a campaign to undo that, which Marvel has clearly rejected. Its most definitely worth a read, and I thank Kate for pointing it out.]
To get more along those lines, be certain not to skip the next issue of Is Roar, which features an unusual look at the Buddhist journey of the famed celebrity of the coming Doctor Odd film, Benedict Cumberbatch, issues around Doctor Stranges job of a mythologized Tibet, and a look at some of the best explicitly or perhaps implicitly Buddhist films, as picked simply by bell barbs, Jeff Connections,  Krista Tippett, Michael Imperioli, and more.
