Even in the lauded golden age of television, terrible characters who ruin your favorite TV shows remain a staple in everyone's Hulu, HBO, and Netflix queues.

iron fist - He was so whiny, so annoying and weak, it was patently unbelieveable that it could be the "greatest martial artist in the world" - the fact that he could never control his emotions was laughable, since he needed to do that to be able to control his chi, and obtain his power. The whole thing was pathetic.
