    Can’t I just have the old Iron-Fist book back. This looks bad. That costume is horrible. Ugh.

    I wonder if his Roller Derby outfit is giving him the powers or what exactly they’re going to call his powerset. For a Power Man he is at least rocking a variation on the chain belt, but alas, no tiara.
