Marvel Reveals ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’ Animated Series Ally Iron Fist

Marvel has revealed a new image of Iron Fist a.k.a. Danny Rand, one of a few young S.H.I.E.L.D. trainees Peter Parker will team with on Disney XD’s Ultimate Spider-Man animated series starting on April 1. Briefly seen in action at San Diego Comic-Con this past summer, Iron Fist will join Spidey and (at least) two characters who appeared to resemble Luke Cage and White Tiger — who will likely also receive official reveals this week. Or maybe Marvel will throw us a curveball and provide a look at the show’s version of Agent Coulson or Stan Lee in his “Stan the Janitor” role?”The ‘Ultimate Spider-Man’ version Iron Fist is definitely a Danny, and not a Daniel, Rand,” Man of Action’s Duncan Rouleau told, “Unlike some other super heroes on his team, he isn’t given to big mouthy boasts or wild displays of teenage angst. Danny embraces a go-with-the-flow attitude. Stepping out from the confines of K’un L’un into the madhouse of New York, Danny tends to look at everything with a wide-eyed sense of the new that offers a unique perspective vs. his more jaded fellow trainees. But don’t be fooled, beneath that kick-back demeanor is the most deadly kick in the world…and, of course, an iron fist.”

Iron Fist’s mystical K’un L’un upbringing will apparently also make him the team’s expert on magic, something the science minded Peter Parker won’t easily want to accept in the series.

This version of Iron First, though younger than usual, seems pretty consistent with his mainstream Marvel continuity counterpart. Longtime Ultimate Spider-Man comic readers, however, will likely be relieved considering “Ultimate Iron Fist” was kind of a jerk and wore a shirtless vest.
