Originally a [[MarvelUniverse Marvel]] [[UsefulNotes/TheBronzeAgeOfComicBooks Bronze Age]] character, he was first created to cash in on the popularity of Kung Fu films. Iron Fist first appeared in ''"Marvel Premiere''" #15 (May, 1974), created by Roy Thomas and Gil Kane. He appeared as the lead in this magazine until issue #25 (October, 1975). Then was granted his first eponymous series ''"Iron Fist''", which lasted for 15 issues (November, 1975-September, 1977). Sales started to flag in the late 70s, until someone had the great idea to team him up with another low-selling series, [[ComicBook/LukeCageHeroForHire Luke Cage: Power Man]], as part of Luke's ComicBook/HeroesForHire agency. The amalgamated series' popularity far outstripped both its predecessors. It was written by Creator/ChrisClaremont, Mary Jo Duffy, Creator/KurtBusiek and [[Creator/ChristopherPriestComics Christopher Priest]], who notoriously finished his run by [[ComicBookDeath killing Danny.]] Needless to say he didn't stay dead - in fact it was Priest who brought him back. Since then he's had an important role during the Marvel ComicBook/CivilWar, and even joined the ComicBook/NewAvengers. Despite this, he's never really risen beyond B-list status.

* ChestInsignia: Both Danny and Davos have tattoos burned into their chests from facing the dragon Shou-Lao the Undying, as do most other Iron Fists (though some have the symbol printed elsewhere instead). The Prince of Orphans also has a chest symbol [[spoiler: pledging his allegiance to Lei Kung the Thunderer]].

* TheNameless: The ninja-servant girl (who is [[spoiler: Orson Randall's daughter]]) was never named, due to rather restricted freedoms caused by her society's caste system. According to her, she'll have made a name for herself by the time Danny sees her again.

* WalkingShirtlessScene: Both Danny and Davos, as well as Davos' father Lei Kung (though has some minor covering). Danny often ''does'' wear a shirt, but a lot of the time it either gets destroyed discarded, or had a plunging neckline that exposed his chest, tattoo, and abs.

name.



* ObstructiveBureaucrat: In a different comic, IronMan and the Mighty Avengers confront Danny about his activities with the New Avengers as Iron Fist, which are illegal due to the SuperRegistrationAct. Danny's lawyer, Jeryn Hogarth, points out to Iron Man that Danny is already a registered hero, having registered his fists as lethal weapons. He also points out that, even though everyone seems to know Danny is Iron Fist, no one can technically prove it, except through very unconstitutional means that Tony doesn't want anyone to know about. Jeryn is a pretty pudgy, normal guy, basically telling off some of the most powerful heroes on Earth, and manages to piss off Ms. Marvel, so this is his CrowningMomentOfAwesome.

* MightyWhitey: Largely played down in the more recent series (with the advent of the other Immortal Weapons, all of whom are Asian), though introducing a previous Iron Fist, only to declare him ''another'' white guy who out-mastered the masters of K'un-Lun did raise a few eyebrows.

* FullyAbsorbedFinale: The original ''Power Man and Iron Fist'' series ended with Danny being beaten to death by Captain Hero, and Luke going on the run after being framed for the murder. This was resolved years later in a ''{{Namor}}'' story arc, where it was established that the whole thing was an elaborate ruse concocted by Master Khan.
