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.
