I want to know where I should start? He seems like a cool character and wanted to pick up some of his stories but where do I start? What do you guys recommend?

Thanks in advance :)

The Immortal Iron Fist by Ed Brubaker is my favorite story with him. He wrote the first 14 books with Matt Fraction and then Fraction took over after that. It made him one of my favorite characters in the Marvel U. I am excited that they seem to be making him central to the AVX story line because all of the New Avenger stories have revolved around him and the city of K'un Lun.

Personally I love Iron Fist's original run in Marvel Premiere, (beginning with issue #15), and when it continued in his own book, (which featured Chris Claremont and John Byrne and is AWESOME). Make sure you find the two issues of Marvel Team-Up which kind of wrapped up the series. Then Danny went on to appear with Luke Cage in Power man & Iron Fist which had it's up and downs but probably more of the latter. It was a fun, campy series most of the time. At the conclusion of that, Danny was "killed" and didn't appear in any Marvel comics for several years until John Byrne, (there's that name again), brought him back in Namor's ongoing. He was in several mostly forgettable mini-series for the next few years and made many appearances in Marvel Comics Presents, (none of which was all that memorable), before finally teaming up with Luke again in Heroes For Hire.

Sorry for the history lesson - bored at work and I own pretty much every issue IF has appeared in, (even the Deadly Hands of Kung-Fu magazines), lol. Like others have said, Immortal Iron Fist is fantastic. It's a damn shame it was canceled as it's one of the best books Marvel has had in the last few years.

@Iron Fist Angel:Well thanks I'll have too look at the Power man and Iron Fist.

I have just been trying to get away from the popular characters and I saw Iron Fist and thought he looked cool to get into. But any way, all in all, I should just read Immortal Iron Fist?
