We knew that David Walker was working on something for All New All Different Marvel. We just didn’t know what. We also presumed that Marvel would have Power Man and Iron Fist comics out to accompany the Netflix shows. And now the two have nicely come together with Sanford Greene.
“About a year ago or so, [Marvel editor] Axel Alonso asked me to list all the characters that I wanted to work with the most,” Walker tells Fast Company. “He said, ‘Don’t be limited—go as big as you want.’ At the very top of that list were Luke Cage and Danny Rand, and I put in parentheses after their names: ‘as a team.’ Because this was something that I’d wanted to see for years and years. That particular duo, they’re so iconic. As a writer, you love interesting characters, and those two characters are so fun to delve into. They are the ultimate bromantic couple.”
