Iron Fist

A Fair Fight?

 

Fair Fight

What is the value in fighting fair? Paul and Matthew explore the trope of the Fair Fight, looking at its value and its problems. What does a hero do, when the opponent refuses to follow the rules? If one side follows rules that the other ignores, is that a virtue that will inspire others, or a weakness for an opponent to exploit? We explore these questions in regard to Iron Fist, Firefly, superhero movies in general, and our current political situation?
