HistoryEdit

Lei-Kung was the immortal martial arts master of K'un-Lun, charged by K'un-Lun's ruler to train all the males of the city in kung-fu. He was an unparalleled master of K'un-Lun's martial arts, and trained generations of K'un-Lun's inhabitants. Among his students were Daniel Rand (the current Iron Fist)[1] and all of Daniel's immediate predecessors. It is possible that Lei-Kung trained every man and woman to ever bear the title Iron Fist.

Among Lei-Kung's more infamous students was his son, Davos, who like all males of K'un-Lun trained to be a potential Iron Fist. Davos progressed well, but was eventually defeated by the current Iron Fist's father, Wendell Rand. Enraged by his loss, Davos attempted to perform the Iron Fist ritual and battle the dragon Shou-Lao on his own, without the city's blessing. Defeated by the dragon, Lei-Kung found Davos laying in the snow outside of Shou-Lao's temple and took him home without a word. Embittered by the loss of his self-proclaimed fate, and much to Lei-Kung's shame, Davos would become a regular enemy of both the new Iron Fist and his native city.

After the death of Lord Tuan, the ruler of K'un-Lun who adopted Daniel Rand-Kai, Lei-Kung watched as Tuan's son, Nu-An became the new ruler of the mystical city-state. Seeing Nu-An's corruption and subjugation of his people first-hand, Lei-Kung began a secret rebellion to overthrow the ruler. Believing that the men of K'un-Lun would be loyal to Nu-An, Lei-Kung instead trained the women of the city to serve as the warriors for his rebellion, the Army of Thunder.[2]

Lei-Kung's shadow rebellion spent decades preparing itself, maintaining its secrecy as Nu-An's reign became ever more dictatorial and deceptive. Finally, during the Celestial Tournament (a rare dimensional event where parts of all seven of the immortal cities intersect for a short period of time), Lei-Kung began the rebellion. With assistance from the seven immortal weapons (including Iron Fist) Lei-Kung deposed Nu-An and became the new ruler of K'un-Lun.[3]
