Marvel Premiere #24-25 (1975)

Something very strange happens here: Danny plays in a softball game against the Marvel bullpen!  Other than that, issue #24 is forgettable.

Iron Fist saves Princess Azir of Halwan from a robot assassin named Ballox, who was sent to kill her by Master Kahn.

Then, in #25, he fights Angar the Screamer.

Angar creates spells and illusions with his voice, which does allow Byrne to draw some cool stuff.

This is, I think, the first time Claremont and Byrne team up creatively.  It’s not their best work, but it’s interesting to see the early stuff.

From here, they go on to an Iron Fist solo book, and Marvel Premiere moves on to tell other stories about other heroes.

Creators: Chris Claremont and Pat Broderick (#24), John Byrne (#25)
Grade: C
