OO Years ago, Daniel Rand’s father found the legendary city of K’un-Lun. Saving the life of the city’s ruler, he stayed there for some time before desiring to return to the United States. Years later, he 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 from K’un-Lun. Seeing the boy’s need for focus and desire for vengeance, the city’s ruler Yu-Ti directed the famed marital 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, he 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 superheroes for years. Eventually, the two dissolved their business partnership, but not their friendship. He then wandered the world, seeking enlightenment and resolving various issues from his troubled past. OO
