Issue Review
 
by RikerDonegal: Chapter 1: Iron Fist. Lazy start to an action-packed story with an improbable twist at the end. 4/10

Chapter 2: Sons of the Tiger. Very different to earlier SotT stories. Less interesting, with a somewhat strained situation. Getting the boys into the UN based on an ‘itch’ is a tad flimsy. 3/10

Chapter 3: Shang-Chi. By-the-numbers stuff, nothing to get excited about. Hero tracks kidnap victims quite easily and frees them after some fighting. 4/10

  They could have put more effort into linking these stories... this seemed more like a lame afterthought. Basically the first two stories were pointless.

  I expected a huge misunderstanding fight and, in the end, the characters never even meet. It's more like 3 separate stories with Shang Chi the best of the bunch.

  Story was all over the place. Sons of the Tiger really suck.

  Would have been better if they all teamed up in the end for an epic battle of epic epicness.

  I don't understand Fu Manchu here. He wanted his plan to fail? That's what it seemed like.

  The story was entertaining enough, but is there seriously nothing that martial arts can't do? These people have magical powers that Doctor Strange would call bullshit on. Like how the hell does someone survive being shot out of a torpedo tube? Or for that matter...how does someone get shot out of a torpedo tube? It's not like a gun that uses force to send out a bullet, torpedoes are self propulsion.
Well at least it doesn't let you realize that that blind man that hit your foot knew that he hit your foot even though you had been silent the whole time.
