no, I have a hard time believing that a writer whose best work was at best better than average could churn out perfect comics about a character I could have cared less about before said comics. I even started reading Simonson's run on Thor as a result of those one shots. He had lots of great ideas, and even a few exemplary comics before those, but nothing he wrote even hinted at his ability to write a comic of that quality (much less what four of them). They were not hindered by his apparent attention disorder problems and were great ideas. Both had never occured in a single product from him before.
Iron Fist is great (although, the second arc went on way too long), but he had help. I am guessing that the team up with Bru was good for him. He is a much more competent writer now then he was pre Iron Fist.
