Namor annual #3 (Iron Fist)
Issue(s): Namor annual #3 (Iron Fist story only)
This story has Iron Fist responding to a call from Tibetan monks who have summoned a demon that they couldn't control. They summoned the demon to fight off Chinese soldiers, but it attacked them instead.
It took me a second to realize that the demon was speaking in english with a weird font. I briefly thought that his words were just ancient runes.
Iron Fist isn't sure if he can defeat the demon, and in the end he has to collapse the temple to kill it, saying, "In order to preserve the shrine -- I am forced to destroy it". In providing that twist on the famous phrase from the Vietnam War, i'm not sure if Ron Marz is actually making commentary on the the war or just trying to turn a clever phrase, but obviously the context is completely different.
Anyway it's a perfectly average Iron Fist story that serves no larger purpose.
Quality Rating: C-
Chronological Placement Considerations: The MCP place this before Iron Fist's appearance in Maximum Carnage.
Continuity Insert? N
My Reprint: N/A
Oh no, your placement considerations just reminded me Maximum Carnage was a thing that happened.

It only went downhill from there. Remember The "Clone Saga"? No amount of brainwashing has been able to erase it from my mind.
