    Marvel Cinematic Universe Martial Arts Thread

    So Marvel's "Defenders" is coming to Netflix soon, following Iron Fist... a show allegedly about the greatest Martial artist in the world.

    Discuss.

    Iron Fist sucked ass, this (sadly) most likely will too.

    They have not made a show about Rickson Gracie, so this is wrong.

    I'm not big into comics but IF never appealed to me.

    If I had to choose my favorites...Hulk, Wonder Woman, and Spiderman, and in that order.

    Karate would give it more marketing appeal.

    Marvel's scripting of Odin was completely off.
    Anthony Hopkins did a fine job as an actor.
    But Marvel's Odin behaves more like Tyr than Odin.
    Odin enjoyed blood letting above all things, cared little about justice, and craved that kings be sacrificed to him.
    Odin also only spoke in rhyme or song.
    As a comic book movie, it was well done.
    But Odin is more interesting as the bizarre figure of the real mythology as drawn from the surviving early epic poems about him than the wise and restrained king than the comic book movies portrayed him as.
    The real Odin would have slaughtered the Frost Giants, Slaightered the dark elves, encouraged the humans to slaughter each other, sang sings to encourage the carnage, and drank wine the entire time, when he was not hacking and slaughtering in a mad, murderous ecstasy, or engaging in bizarre rituals of self-sacrifice to increase his own shamanic power.
