Bruce Lee and Iron Fist


Like Mr. T, Bruce Lee was another person from my youth that felt like a real-life superhero.  He really knew how to fight (convincing screen combat at least) and brought The Green Hornet and the movies that he starred in to another level.  His tragic death at such an early age only added to his iconic aura.

I could see a two-parter with Shang-Chi. It could be almost like one of my favorite Marvel Team-Up stories with Spidey, Black Widow, Nick Fury, and Shang-Chi.

This is one of the very rare cases where the mixing of styles doesn’t work for me. I like the idea and the composition, but the style difference disrupts it for me.

Or toss in Richard Dragon or Bronze Tiger to get DC involved.

How about a team-up of Shang-Chi (as drawn by Paul Gulacy) and Bruce Lee? Readers would think they were seeing double!

How about Mr. Miyaki and the Legion of Superheroes?

That should of course be Mr. Miyagi.

Speaking of mixing styles (lame segue)...

We have one month to go on our Classic DC Covers wall calendar. This month's was the great Flash-Superman race cover (Superman #199, 1967) with art by Murphy Anderson and Carmine Infantino. The mix of their distinct styles reminds me of covers here.

Also:
15 Impossible Superhero Crossovers (That Actually Happened) - meh team-ups compared to what we're used to here, but more proof Ross taps a vein (daily!) everyone enjoys.

I consider this a long-overdue team up, as Shang-Chi was partially inspired by Bruce Lee!

Btw: how about the Justice League of Capt. America vs. the Legion of Dr. Doom?

Wasn't Danny Rand based on Chuck Norris?

For me, it seems ironic that because of the difference in styles the image of a real person looks less "real" here than the outrightly fictional one...

Karate Kid (DC version) was also also based on Bruce Lee with the remodeling in White, Black and Yellow costume even more with some of his features changed.

you should have thrown in from Charlton Comics, 'all new' Yang, however the name "Yang" back in 1973 was really a knockoff of David Carradines popular Kung-Fu TV show. Only 50 and above folks remember Yang.
