Iron Fist became kind of tolerable, and Matt, Jessica and Luke were cool as always. 7.5/10, IMO.


Well somehow at one point they caused an earthquake in New York. I figure something like that would do it, but on a larger scale.

If it was a huge letdown why do you have an erection?

Up to the last one.

Enjoying it for the most part. A little too much forced drama for my tastes though.. The cities literally in danger of being burned to the ground, and they're all on about petty differences. Matt sniping at Stick every which way, Jones being over the top bitchy for no real reason, Colleen whining about them for no real reason.. Only one who acts sensibly and is remotely relatable is Cage.

This assumes I don't always have an erection; when you know better. Weird.

Holy crap, does this guy have an axe to grind:.


quote:
Danny Rand has always been an awkward fit for the Netflix MCU anyway. His Defenders teammates are all defined, in some way, by their underdog status. Daredevil's a blind man who takes advantage of other people's tendency to underestimate him. Jessica's a woman moving past prolonged sexual assault and abuse. Luke's a black man trying to forge a way forward after getting screwed over by the criminal justice system.

And Iron Fist? He's a straight white guy with a billion-dollar fortune and actual magic powers. He's advantaged in every single way he can be advantaged. While the other Defenders are down in the streets cleaning up their neighborhoods and protecting the forgotten and disadvantaged from the rich and powerful, Danny Rand is looking down at those same neighborhoods from the top of a skyscraper with his name on it.

That's not to say that rich, straight white men can't be heroes, of course. (Just ask Iron Man, Doctor Strange, or Batman.)


Soooo.... Why exactly DOES rich white womanizing drunk Tony Stark get a pass from SJW's, while well meaning orphan Danny Rand who was raised by monks and is simply ignorant about social norms has a target painted on his back?

Who is underestimating DD because he's blind?

Have to be honest, now that I'm done with it, it feels like Daredevil 2.5. More or less Matt and Elektra re-enacting the drama from series 2, with friends joining the frey..

The SJW bullcrap between Cage and Danny kind of blew Heroes for Hire for me, too. Fact is, Cage didn't even know Danny enough to be lecturing him, or getting angry at his "privilege".. Total SJW pandering.

In watching this right now. I absolutely hate the..well hate...that Iron First gets as as result of politics. How dare you accuse of someone of being a "privileged billionaire white boy" after he's told you his backstory of his parents dying in a plane crash. Especially since Luke's own backstory showed his father's privilege getting him sent to the marines instead of jail

Cage lost points for me lecturing Danny. Considering he was just looking out for the kid because he was black and from his hood. It didn't matter that Danny caught him melting bodies with acid. Because he was black he automatically assumed Danny was being a profiling racist.

A shame too, Cage was the best character there imo.

I liked how they did it better in the old comics, with Danny trying his Kung Fu shite to solve a street problem, attracting way too much attention from locals, and Cage coming in and solving it his way. Cue a pat on the back for effort, and Danny realizing he really needs to work on his ignorance..

But maybe nowadays that would be frowned upon as coddling a privileged white boy? As if the ONLY way to respond to ignorance is with personal assaults, no matter if the other guys listening and making a real effort?

Luke was in full on "Harlem mode" then.

What confuses me is the ninjas wanted to [SPOILER - highlight to read]: get to Kun Lun and it's all they talk about but then no wait they want dragon bones under the city?

Who else would be down for a Luke Cage and Daredevil series? I'm still in the middle of watching The Defenders, and I think that Luke Cage and Matt Murdock have a good rapport with one another. They're the two members of the team that I like the best, probably because they both have an every man superhero vibe to them. They just want to do the right thing for their communities. They aren't entitled airheads like Danny Rand, and, much as Jessica Jones is a great metaphor for trauma survivors, I just don't find her that compelling of a character. I believe that Daredevil's and Luke Cage's respective skills and powers would work just as well together, if not better than a Luke Cage and Iron Fist series.

I'd actually like DD and Jessica Jones. They have a nice back and forth, plus it was funny when he first puts on her scarf and she says he looks like an a-hole.
