This is the article on the character from the main dimension. For the character's vampire counterpart, head to Vampire Iron Fist.

Daniel "Danny" Rand is the heir to Rand Industries, the leading corporation in the development of aerospace technology in America. When Danny was a child, he left his luxurious lifestyle to study the mystic and martial arts of K'un-Lun. Danny learned that he would one day "usher in an era of peace as the king of K'un-Lun" if he proves himself worthy of the power of the Iron Fist. After defeating the dragon Shao-Lao, Danny earns the power of the Iron Fist and is given a year to settle his affairs with the outside world. However, Danny chooses to gain more worldly knowledge and utilize his skills in a beneficial manner. To this end, Danny joins S.H.I.E.L.D. to learn how to become a superhero known as "Iron Fist".

When the time came for Danny to compete with his fellow acolyte Scorpion for the throne of K'un-Lun, Danny is secretly blinded by Scorpion with poison during the test and nominates his team leader, Spider-Man, to be his champion. When Spider-Man prevailed against Scorpion and exposed his deceit, Danny wins the throne via proxy. Upon realizing that the outside world is not as dishonorable as they originally believed, the elders of K'un-Lun allow Danny to remain with S.H.I.E.L.D. for one more year, who vows to return to K'un-Lun to claim the throne once another year has passed.
