Greetings True Believers! I bring you four scans from Immortal Weapons #3: Dog Brother #1. This mini is great. I love the supporting cast of Iron Fist. We've learned about Fat Cobra and the Bride of Spiders, now witness the legend of DB-1! Spoilers and enjoy!

P.S. Doesn't everyone love the way they name the Kung-Fu strikes in Iron Fist? I know I do!

One Perfect Moment: Iron Fist - warning for epic under the cut!
As soon as I saw that a One Perfect Moment week had been launched, I knew that I had to post this page.

Daniel Thomas Rand-K'ai has (obviously) had a plethora of One Perfect Moments over the years. This should be evident just by reading, oh, any panel with him in it. That's putting aside his extraordinarily cracky backstory with paradise pocket dimensions, mystic warrior poets, aliens, snatching the molten heart of Shou-Lao the undying in order to gain the title of Iron Fist, and all the other things that make him such a perfect distillation of everything that was and can be so good about the House of Ideas.

Thus it's exceedingly hard to pick just One Perfect Moment for obvious reasons; be it a frenzied duomachy or Danny taking on the teeming hordes of HYDRA or Danny flinging himself at a ginormous dragon and felling it with one punch*, it's so difficult to pick.

But there exists an exquisite page from Danny's early days that distills the essence of what it is to be Iron Fist. I read this issue when I was a small girl, and this page is what made me fall in love with Iron Fist as a character, because it blew my mind.

And this page? Is EPIC in both art and writing.

Yes. That is, in fact, Danny Rand delivering a curb stomp in one page to a dude fully powered up in a suit of Iron Man armour with naught but his bare hands.

And that, my friends, is why Danny Rand is the baddest motherfucker in the world.

...Not to mention that that page proves beyond a shadow of a doubt that Danny has the finest posterior of any male in the Marvelverse.

Edit: Wait. I have to add one more page, because no One Perfect Moment post featuring Iron Fist is complete without showing Danny wrecking three people's faces with just one kick.

I'm pretty certain that this page was the direct inspiration for Matt Fraction and David Aja's Danny-and-Orson-vs.-HYDRA sequence in Immortal Iron Fist #5.

We just might need to have a Rudy Nebres week here on S_D. His work was both seminal and gorgeous.

* Oh, yes. You'd best believe that I'll also be posting those pages.
** The same issue has the distinction of also containing the very first appearance of Jack of Hearts. Who does Jack fight in his very first canonical appearance? The White Tiger. No, I am not making this up.
