Iron Fist's story makes basic sense. I don't give it points for that. I'd say The Gifted's story makes some basic sense because you can see all the seams where they stitched it together from other stuff. The female characters, aren't awful. Simply outside of Polaris, they aren't characters. Which is a huge problem with the show. It is a bunch of plot points, with no story, no characters that aren't super basic. And I'd say there are plenty of overtly evil folk. All this being said, comparing Iron Fist and the Gifted isn't good for the Gifted. We aren't talking Legion, the Punisher, Daredevil, Jessica Jones here. I mean, I guess at least it isn't the Inhumans in that regard. But the Gifted could and should be a lot better imo.
