The second season of Iron Fist is finally here and it is making major changes to Danny Rand's story. After spending much of Season 1 repeating that he is "The Immortal Iron Fist," Danny might need to find a new tagline.

Iron Fist Season 2 Spoilers Ahead.

The first half of the second season showed a different side of Danny as he becomes more impulsive and aggressive. However, Davos puts an end to the mean streak as he steals the power of the Iron Fist away from his former colleague. Danny initially works to get his mojo back then decides that Colleen Wing should be the new Iron Fist. The series concludes with Colleen accepting her new role and turning out to be a more effective Iron Fist than Danny or Davos because she can channel the power out to her katana.

This is certainly a HUGE change since Colleen never actually becomes the Iron Fist in the comic books. However, her backstory gives an awesome nod to the only female Iron Fist in the comics. It is revealed that Colleen was told stories about the Pirate Queen who once protected K'un-Lun but left to marry a fisherman. Wu Ao-Shi might be Colleen's ancestor, making her a descendant of an actual Iron Fist.

Finn Jones and Jessica Henwick had previously teased that Iron Fist Season 2 would take a completely different direction that would have people hoping for a third season. With Colleen as the new Iron Fist, there is little doubt that everyone is looking forward to seeing more of her in action.

Iron Fist Season 2 is currently streaming on Netflix.
