* BrokenBase: Danny's race has been a hot-topic for some time, particularly in the idea of adapting the comics into a show, as Marvel are currently doing. Some think it doesn't matter in the slightest, while others are upset that he plays the MightyWhitey trope straight, and a third group thinks choosing an Asian actor would then play to AllAsiansKnowMartialArts (ignoring that Danny undergoing a RaceLift to be of Asian descent would not play the stereotype straight, as the main criticism of the AllAsiansKnowMartialArts trope is how it's used to define Asian characters solely by their martial arts skill rather than personality and the [[TropesAreTools concept of the trope itself is not inherently bad on its own). Finn Jones (Loras Tyrell from Series/GameOfThrones) being confirmed to have been cast as Danny only fueled the debate even more, as there had been a campaign beforehand for Marvel to cast an Asian or half-Asian actor.

* BrokenBase:
** Danny's race has been a hot-topic for some time, particularly in the idea of adapting the comics into a show, as Marvel are currently doing. As noted bellow, Danny as he is in the comics plays the MightyWhitey trope straight, which is considered offensive to many. However, the obvious solution to give him a RaceLift and make him Asian-American has its own issues with playing into Asian stereotypes, which some feel would be just as bad.

* TearJerker: How Fat Cobra became an Immortal Weapon: [[spoiler:Over his unnaturally long life, he sired thousands of bastard children; each with great talent and skill for combat, and each wanting blood for their abandonment. Fat Cobra spent years defending himself from sudden attacks, killing them all, until there were none left to fight]].

* UnfortunateImplications: Iron Fist's origin hasn't aged well. As noted [[http://thenerdsofcolor.org/2014/03/11/marvel-please-cast-an-asian-american-iron-fist/ here]], Danny's origin plays the very old and very DiscreditedTrope of MightyWhitey incredibly straight, and does raise issue for his upcoming Netflix show.



* VocalMinority: A significant number of fans have been asking for Danny Rand to be played by an Asian American actor (as the MightyWhitey trope would not fly in the modern day) in the [[Series/IronFist Netflix show]]. You can check out the topic [[http://thenerdsofcolor.org/2014/03/11/marvel-please-cast-an-asian-american-iron-fist/ here]].
