I is for Iron Fist
Matt Fraction, Ed Brubaker and David Aja, the writers and artist of Immortal Iron Fist, did a fantastic job on modernizing the character, as well as giving him a badly-needed makeover. Iron Fist, arguably the toughest martial artist in the Marvel Comics universe, now has a practical (and cool) costume that no longer provokes uncomfortable, embarrassed laughter from his enemies. Now, instead of having to say "aw, come on guys, quit laughing at my slippers!" all the time, he can get back to punching them out, which was what he was meant to do since the day he put on his mask.
