The Karate Kid: 6 movies, not 4, and 1 Netflix series

by dgranger | created - 1 month ago | updated - 1 month ago | Public

Surprise! Most people, who are not Comic book fans, don’t know the Karate Kid is a DC comic book character and a part of the Justice League of America in the 31st century! (He is the master of all forms of the martial arts.) Therefore, they only think there is only the five or four live action films and the Netflix series, when there is another animated superhero one. So which one of these are your favorite?

His Dojo can be found right here. (The reason for this is that every time my nephews and people at work talk about The Karate Kid or Cobra Kai is that they get surprised to learn he is a DC comic book character or even learn about the other films! What is so funny is that in every credits, it says he is a DC character!
