Chi-Lin comes from the pages of “The Immortal Iron Fist” #17 from 2008 and was created by Duane Swiercynski and Travel Foreman. Chi-Lin is a beast who hungers for the eggs of the dragon, Shou-Lao the Undying, and can only be defeated by the champion of K’un-Lun. The demon can possess humans to travel innocuously as it stalks its prey. The demon’s hunger for the dragon’s eggs is the source of its immense power and it cannot be killed.
In the second season of Iron Fist, if Danny successfully returns to K’un-Lun, having Chi-Lin stalking and waiting to steal the eggs of the dragon could be a major aspect of the season. In the first season, Danny ends up feeling tremendous guilt over abandoning his post in K’un-Lun and Chi-Lin can represent a spiritual embodiment of Danny Rand abandoning K’un-Lun. Plus, showing Chi-Lin possessing different people could add a really spooky element to the show.
Crossbones is a notable Captain America foe, having even appeared in “Captain America: Civil War” portrayed by Frank Grillo. However, what if Crossbones served as an antagonist in the “Punisher” Netflix series? Springing from the pages of “Captain America” #360 in 1989, Crossbones was created by Mark Gruenwald and Kieron Dwyer.
Predominantly a Captain America antagonist, Crossbones could easily be a Punisher villain as well. An experienced mercenary, with extensive knowledge of hand-to-hand combat, a myriad of handheld weapon experience, and an expert tactician, he could serve as an excellent foil for Frank Castle. A character who is able to match wits and intellectually challenge the Punisher at every turn. in the second season of “Daredevil” we see how intelligent and relentless the Punisher can be, and to have a character challenge step for step in Crossbones could be very excellent. Crossbones is a fairly big picture antagonist, taking on Captain America is no easy task, so to see Crossbones come up in either Daredevil or Punisher could be pretty special.
