Season 1 of the Netflix Marvel series Iron Fist is currently trending across the internet and it isn't for very good reasons.

A review on USA Today notes that every super group has a weak link and Iron Fist is officially the weak link when it comes to Netflix Marvel shows. The review on USA Today goes on to claim Iron Fist just doesn't offer the same depth Marvel fans have come to expect. Those who have had the series claim it certainly fails in comparison to Jessica Jones, Daredevil, and Luke Cage.

A review on Vox describes the new Netflix Marvel series as "a poorly written disaster" and "ill-conceived." The review proceeds to say that the biggest issue with Iron Fist is the fact that it is boring.
"This series takes everything good Marvel has done, takes it on a joy ride, then returns it scratched, bruised, and smelling like patchouli and broken promises. After the 13-hour slog, I'm not angry — I'm just disappointed."
Hollywood Reporter notes that while it has only been two days that people have been able to watch Iron Fist the early reviews have not been great. In fact, the reviews across the board have been mostly disappointment with the new Netflix Marvel series.

Screen Rant even posted a review labeling Iron Fist as "the worst Marvel-Netflix show."

The Hollywood Reporter's Daniel Fienberg wrote that the series "feels like a step backward on every level, a major disappointment that already suffers from storytelling issues through the first six episodes made available to critics and would probably be mercifully skippable in its entirety if it weren't the bridge into the long-awaited Defenders crossover series."

While the general consensus across most media outlets that have posted a review about Iron Fist on Netflix is that the series is a total flop – the feedback on Twitter doesn't appear to be all negative. While there are certainly a lot of tweets slamming the series for not being good, there are just as many tweets claiming they don't understand why the series is getting slammed as a dud and the worst Marvel series on Netflix.

Here are some of the more positive tweets about Iron Fist on Twitter.

Here are some of the more negative tweets agreeing that the Marvel series is the worst.
A handful of those who took the time to comment on Twitter with their negative feelings regarding the series commented on the fact that the series could have been better if it wasn't Americans making a series about Kung-Fu. Would the movie have been better if it had been produced in another country?

While there hasn't been any information released regarding whether or not Netflix has plans of renewing the series for Season 2, many have agreed Netflix would be better off pouring money into a new series or movie than to renew what a lot of people are referring to as the worst Marvel series on Netflix.
