Misty Knight’s profile has skyrocketed following her star turn in Marvel Netflix’s Luke Cage and (to a lesser extent) Defenders, but Marvel Comics readers know Misty’s been one of the coolest Marvel heroes for a good long while.
Misty gets her start as a supporting player in Iron Fist (soon to become Power Man & Iron Fist), quickly cementing her friendship and romantic involvement with the likes of Luke Cage and Danny Rand. A friendship with the equally adept Colleen wing forms the Daughters of the Dragon, shaping Misty’s late 70’s and 1980’s standing in Marvel Comics.
Since that time, Misty Knight has led several teams including the Heroes for Hire and a new Daughters of the Dragon. Below you’ll find all the major Misty Knight comic book appearances, and where to collect and read Misty Knight comics.
