Years ago, Daniel Rand’s father found the legendary city of K’un-Lun. Saving the life of the city’s ruler, Wendell Rand stayed in K’un-Lun for a time before desiring to return to the United States. Years later, Wendell took his son Daniel, his wife Heather, and his friend and business partner, Harold Meachum, on a journey back to K’un-Lun. When Meachum betrayed them, Daniel’s parents died and he survived only due to the timely intervention of agents of K’un-Lun. Seeing the boy’s need for focus and desire for vengeance, the city’s ruler Yü-Ti directed the famed martial arts master Lei Kung the Thunderer to train the boy.
Danny Rand trained in K’un Lun, eventually defeating the dragon Shou-Lao and gaining the power of the Iron Fist, the city’s protector and champion. Returning to the United States, Iron Fist avenged his father and took over the family business, Rand International. He also met hero-for-hire Luke Cage, AKA Power Man. The two became unlikely friends and partners, working together as freelance super heroes for years. Eventually the two dissolved their business partnership but not their friendship. Danny then wandered the world, seeking enlightenment and resolving various issues with his troubled past.
Recently, Iron Fist has returned to the United States once more. When the identity of Daredevil, Danny’s long-time friend and fellow hero, leaked to the public, Iron Fist stepped into the vigilante’s identity for a time to help out.
