Iron Fist Season 2 introduced a major new villain into the Marvel Cinematic Universe in the form of Mary Walker (Alice Eve), a mentally unstable killer who proved to be both friend and foe to Danny Rand. Not only that, this season opened the door for much more to come with Mary, hinting that she has a third and even more dangerous personality waiting to manifest itself.
Who is this new “alter,” and what does it tell us about Mary’s future role in the Netflix Marvel Universe? Here’s what we know based on Typhoid Mary’s comic book appearances.
Typhoid Mary: Comics vs. TV
Typhoid Mary changed more than most Marvel characters when she made the jump to the MCU. Apart from the fact that she’s still portrayed as a psychologically unstable woman with split personalities and a penchant for killing, there’s not a lot in common between the two. Heck, even the fact that she made her debut on Iron Fist when the comic book version of Typhoid Mary is most closely associated with Daredevil is a major departure.
