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. Raised and trained by the elders 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 earned the power of the Iron Fist and was given a year to settle his affairs with the outside world. However, Danny chose to gain more worldly knowledge and utilize his skills in a beneficial manner. To this end, Danny joined S.H.I.E.L.D. to learn how to become a superhero known as "Iron Fist".

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