I'll say this: Even though many people supposedly wanted this battle, it seems pretty one-sided so far. To my honest surprise, most are saying Iron Fist takes it pretty easily. If Danny is really that impressive and "in another league," I have to ask - why did people request this battle to begin with? lol... it's just kind of funny.
At any rate, some of the feats being presented, such as Danny "casually" knocking out Hercules, or decimating a speeding freight train with his bare fist, are certainly impressive. However, I also have to ask - is it in Danny's character to lead in with such high-powered attacks on an opponent that he has never faced before and knows nothing about? From what I've seen, it isn't.
The point of those feats is simply this: This fight only goes on as long as Danny wants it to go.
I didn't know people wanted this fight; I personally asked for Batman vs Black Panther....tho that's probably a beatdown for Batman as well...
I would consider Hercules a Herald level character, at least in terms of strength and durability given his showings against Thor and the Hulk. Also Hercules was drunk to the point of barely being able to stand and Iron Fist's punch just finished what the booze started, so I wouldn't say it's entirely PIS given Danny's other high end showings.
Actually, he stood and charged just fine, there was no slurring of his words, or anything. They don't even state that he was drunk. He had two full mugs in his hands, and even afterwards when he and Danny talked it out, they never mentioned him being drunk. He was exceedingly grief stricken at the time (which was the impetus for the attack), and I can say that I have seen a drunk Hercules take a beating from Thor and keep on going. Danny just knows how and where to hit, and with the track record of his Iron Fist and what/who it has affected, and the ability to push chi into things, it is a very plausible showing.
And this was what happened afterwards:
Well, if this debate wasn't settled before, it's settled now.
Danny, CASUALLY, knocked out HERCULES!!!! *Dwayne Johnson voice*
quick question. Can Iron Fist be Chi blocked? As in can his Chi be cut off via pressure points?
Not by the far physically weaker Batman, no.
What do you mean? Has it been tested before? To my knowledge Danny's chi has only been cut off by outside forces (the tree of the immortals being destroyed, shou lou the dragon dying, etc).
I'm saying that Batman doesn't have the physical strength necessary to get through Danny's Chi enhanced body. Those other ways to stop his Chi flow are other dimensional, and will never be known by Batman ever.
@wyldsong: He didn't run alongside the building at all before the wire, he was hanging onto the side of it.
Danny still accomplished something that Batman couldn't physically ever hope to (running along the windows of skyscrapers, while dodging bullets. and while fighting ninjas...and then proceeded to punch a helicopter out of the sky).
