3. Iron Fist

There was a collective sigh from Marvel fans whenever Iron Fist premiered on Netflix. The show signified the first cracks in Netflix's otherwise stable Marvel universe as it failed to make the most of its title character. Its pacing was also all over the place and it just didn't make the same kind of impact as Daredevil, Jessica Jones, or Luke Cage. There was potential there, but the first season didn't showcase it well.

One thing people often overlook, however, is that the second season was a significant improvement, with a tighter story, strong fight choreography and more engaging character development, making for a more enjoyable product all-around. Unfortunately, many of them had tuned out after both the first season and The Defenders crossover didn't match expectations.

Iron Fist gets a hard time and not all of it is earned. I actually rather enjoyed the first season and even though it was a bit too long (and didn't move fast enough), it was enjoyable for what it was. And Finn Jones' performance as Danny Rand doesn't get enough credit. He did well with what he had to work with and it's time we all acknowledged that.

As we get further away from the Marvel Netflix era, more people are starting to appreciate Iron Fist a bit more, and that's a good thing. It will probably never lose its infamous reputation, but we'll take what we can get at this point.
