"That's where you're headed, Danny. That's what you could be. That's what an Iron Fist is."
Bakuto to Danny Rand[src]

Iron Fist was a master martial artist loyal to the Order of the Crane Mother and protector of K'un-Lun.


Immortal Iron Fist

"In 1948, a group of Chinese soldiers got lost in the mountains during a mission being recorded for propaganda purposes. They were headed into a remote area, but someone was there protecting this passage. And, as you can see, he had no interest in letting them pass."
Bakuto to Danny Rand[src]

Iron Fist was trained by the Order of the Crane Mother in K'un-Lun in the ways of martial arts. He later defeated the dragon Shou-Lao and won the power of the Iron Fist. With his new abilities, the Iron Fist guarded the secret pass to K'un-Lun.

In 1948, Chinese soldiers filmed a propaganda film near to the pass to K'un-Lun. The Iron Fist, while being recorded, charged towards the soldiers and killed them all with his powers.[1] At some point after this he died.[2]


Iron Fist's corpse

68 years later, the footage of the Iron Fist came to the hands of Bakuto, one of the five fingers of the Hand, who showed it to Danny Rand, the new Iron Fist.[1] His body was obtained by Orson Randall.[3]

Eventually, Davos shipped his corpse from China to use his Mark of Shou-Lao in a ritual to take the Iron Fist from Danny Rand.[2]
