Shou-Lao was an immortal dragon who became the source of the power of K'un-Lun. During a performance of the dragon riders of K'un-Lun for the entertainment of its Yu-Ti, Shou-Lao went berserk and atttacked the city's leader. He was slain by Quan-St'ar, who cut out the dragon's heart. Enraged at this, Yu-Ti banished Quan-St'ar from the city and revived the dragon by melting its heart and placing it in a sacred cavern.[1]

From this moment, each Iron Fist had to accomplish the final test of defeating this dragon in order to absorb part of its power. He was reborn over 66 times.

Danny Rand defeated the dragon, and in the course of the battle had the dragon-shaped tattoo burned on his chest. After defeating Shou-Lao he plunged his hands into the brazier containing the dragon's immortal heart and it charged him with the power of the Iron Fist[2][3].

Avengers vs. X-Men

When Cyclops and the X-Men were fighting the Avengers in K'un-Lun, Hope and the Thunderer came riding upon the dragon Shao Lao, who blasted Cyclops with its fire. Unfortunately, the dragon was far too young to put up a fight and its riders were dislodged. However, Hope was able to unleash a combination of dragon energy, fire and chaos magic to banish Cyclops to the Moon[4].
