Who is Marvel's greatest fighter: Iron Fist or Shang-Chi?

They are both Marvel's top fighters, no doubt about it. Iron Fist is better known and some say he keeps the title as the best martial artist in the Marvel niverse. But Shang-Chi's been around for a long while, and has shown his skills time and time again. The two have dueled and fought side-by-side, and respect each other's skills. But which kicking, punching badass is the greatest?

To begin with, let's remember we are talking about the comic book character. Forget the sad, noodley hipster Netflix gave us. Iron Fist, in the comics, is serious business. He's not only an astounding martial artist, he's also got enough agility to act as a double for Daredevil and Spider-Man. And let's not forget that his chi focusing does more than punch stuff, though it does that very well. It improves his reflexes, heals him and on occasion, his chi has granted him psychic abilities. There's no beating the immortal Iron Fist.

In the early days, Shang-Chi was said to be the unknown son of pulp villain Fu Manchu, later that story was dropped. Without a doubt, Shang-Chi is inspired by Bruce Lee, but unlike Lee, whose studies focused on Wing Chun (and later in his own form, Jeet Kun Do), Shang-Chi is said to be a master of all forms of Kung Fu. Like Iron Fist, he can control his chi, though to less dramatic effect. He's also revered in the Marvel universe as a teacher, with such illustrious student-fighters and sparring partners as Captain America, Wolverine and Spider-Man.
