Is Iron Fist a Hypocrite? Shadow Land

#1 Posted by The Angry Comic Book Critic (650 posts) - - Show Bio

Daredevil kills Bullseye and Iron Fist is up in arms yet he has no problem killing a ninja in Daredevil 509 to me that spells out Hypocrite what do you think?

I don't care at all about this storyline.

Nameless ninja's are totaly different than ectablished heros/villains.  DD (and many others) are/were agaist killing but never minded taking out countless ninjas/cannon fodder.  Besides, I consider hand ninjas dead already since they give there lives to the order and just disperse into smoke when they are ko'd anyway.

  Yes, it's hypocritical but what can you do?  A lot of those heroes are just that, hypocrites.

Actually, I recall Iron Fist saying something along the lines of "We all have blood on our hands," and "Bullseye definitely had it coming." To me, it seemed like Iron Fist was trying to defend Daredevil for a bit, and Luke Cage was the one who convinced him otherwise.

unfortunately true a lot of purported super-heroes are total hypocrites.

Because Luke's a self-righteous pain.

@FadeToBlackBolt:
I completely agree with you! I think Iron Fist does not want to kill, but will to an extent...I am pretty sure, a low level ninja who is trained to do nothing but do evil is different from the bullseye thing.  Also something to take in consideration is that Danny was merely defending himself and his friends.  Daredevil killed Bullseye in cold blood pretty much

They've been sort of passive about Bullseye's death, IMO. I think, the way I see it, what they really have a problem with is the fact that Bullseye was defeated and he went for the kill anyway.

Aren't Hand Ninjas mystical in a sense.   Don't they give up there soul to gain some power?  Its the reason why when they are defeated they turn into piles of goo.

ARRRR, Killing Ninjas is just like killing a dumb mutt, arrrrrr!

Talk about hypocritical anyone haver the scan of Wolverine shunning Spider-Man away for killing  The Kraven's in the alternate future?

I never really viewed the Hand ninjas as fully human. They die and mist out of sight. Cap is known for putting down Nazis, and plenty of heros killed Skrulls during Secret Invasion. To me its the same thing. I saw Bullseye as a different story because he is human. I say go Matt and Danny. Do what needs to be done boys.

I honestly thought that Fist was more tyring to see if Matt was okay after killing Bullseye.  If that made no sense, its because I didnt read Shadowland 2.

 Hands Ninjas are already dead anyway,Daredevil killed plenty when he fought the brainwashed Wolverine IIRC

As for the "killing" of Bullseye, he'll be back if he isn't already.  DD has plans for him, just you wait.

Yeah, but some people over at the Moon Knight forum (including me) are talking about him possibly being resurrected by Khonshu to be his new avatar.

That hits the nail on the head, imo. I think those are basically Luke's words, too... He said that Bullseye was beat and DD killed him anyway. 
 
And to the guy who mentioned Secret Invasion, I love the fact that hundreds of Skrulls were slaughtered and there was only one human fatality in the Wasp. Yet when Wasp dies, every human goes totally crazy, lol

True, and anyways those ninja's are not alive, they disappear when they are destroyed.

No. There is a difference between killing in battle and an outright execution.
