Forget about Danny Rand (Finn Jones), forget about Davos (Sacha Dhawan), and forget about Joy Meachum (Jessica Stroup). The real draw of Iron Fist Season 2 on Netflix will be the team-up of Misty Knight (Simone Missick) and Colleen Wing (Jessica Henwick).
The ass-kicking duo, known as the Daughters of the Dragon, first made their appearance in 1977's Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #32 by writer Chris Claremont and artist Marshall Rogers.
We saw Misty and Colleen fight together in the second season of Luke Cage, and then we saw them meeting up in the latest trailer for Iron Fist. According to Missick, the pair will be doing a lot of the comedic heavy lifting in the upcoming season. A lot of it will come, oddly enough, from Wing's guilt over the fact that Knight lost her arm to Bakuto (Ramón Rodríguez) during the Defenders miniseries. And even though Misty became more dangerous than ever with the addition of a bionic arm, they're now friends for life.
“Colleen feels oddly responsible for Misty losing her arm and Misty absolutely doesn’t view her in that way, and so — in Luke [Cage] Season 2 — Colleen is coming in to help pick Misty up from where she’s kind of sunk to, and — in Iron Fist Season 2 — Colleen is in this way where she’s not really certain of who she is and these two women don’t deal with those situations just sitting around with wine and crying,” Missick told ComicBook.com. “It’s like they deal with it in a very odd way, with humor and things that most women on screen, you don’t see them deal with these kind of situations in that way, and so I think that you get to enjoy a lot of levity and a lot of humor in Misty and Colleen’s relationship in Iron Fist Season 2, and I think it’s something that the fans are really going to enjoy.”
Their relationships to super-powered individuals is what brought them together in the first place, but it was the pain that solidifed their friendship.
“These are two women who don’t have a lot of girlfriends," Missick also said. "They don’t have women that they call up to gossip about their man problems, and they’ve found one another in this time that they’ve gone through, this very traumatic event, together."
Watch the Daughters of the Dragon in action once again when Iron Fist Season 2 drops on Netflix Sep. 7.
