By this point, Danny and Misty Knight rekindled their relationship and Misty believed she was pregnant; but this turned out to be a false alarm manifested by Danny?s chi. The news led to them parting ways and Rand began dating Joy Meachum.
Iron Fist rejoined the Avengers after the heroes finally put a stop to Norman Osborn?s Dark Reign after the Siege on Asgard. While serving with the team, Danny found himself sucked into the realm of Agamotto, where the mystical entity made Danny its champion, giving him a new white and yellow costume in the process.
Iron Fist then stood by the demon-possessed Daredevil and took a new chi-based hero, Power Man (Vic Alvarez), under his wing.
Later, Iron Fist worked with his fellow Immortal Weapons to close a gateway to the Eighth City. After the conflict, Doctor Strange noted that Rand has also become an Immortal Weapon of Agamotto. Danny then worked with Strange and the Defenders to save reality. He also brought the young mutant Hope and other heroes to K?un-Lun when the Avengers fought Phoenix-possessed members of the X-Men.
Upon discovering that K?un-Lun had been destroyed, Lei Kung had been killed, and Sparrow the new Thunderer had been blinded, Danny faced the One, a training robot that had gained sentience and combined itself with the remains of Rand?s dead father Wendell. It worked with Davos to destroy the mystic city and obtain the dragon egg. But a young monk named Pei stole the egg, giving Danny enough time to regain his strength, commune with his mother, and then finally put a stop the One?s plan to bring Heather Rand back to the mortal plane.
Instead, the One unleashed a giant fire demon on Earth. To combat this evil, Danny joined with the One as well as the Rand building to form a giant chi-channeling armor to stop the flaming deity. That fell apart when Davos killed the latest incarnation of Sha-Lao, but Danny kept on fighting and ultimately won. Sparrow then returned to K?un-Lun to act as Yu-Ti, leaving Danny back on Earth where meetings would be unpredictable because of the destruction of the Randall Gate. Before leaving, Sparrow also told Danny that Pei, the most recent Iron Fist, would be his to train as her Thunderer.
All throughout this adventure, Danny met and fell in love with a woman named Brenda, who was Harold Meachum?s illegitimate daughter. She vowed to kill the last of the Rands, but fell in love with her target after growing to care for Pei as well. Still, she couldn?t bring herself to stay with him and left before Pei explained that all of the dragons had been brought back to life.
After the reality-altering events of Secret Wars, Iron Fist reunited with Power Man to take on their old office manager Jennie Royce, who had been taken over by the Supersoul Stone after meeting Black Mariah in prison. As Jennie attacked her former bosses, Mariah stepped in to talk her back down.
Luke and Danny stuck together through the events of the second Super Hero Civil War, during which Danny was locked up and Captain Marvel tried to take Luke down for attempting to break him out of jail. In the ensuing ruckus, several prisoners escaped. Danny and Luke then dedicated themselves to clearing the innocent. This proved to be difficult, given that ex-Runaway Alex Wilder had been working on rebuilding the criminal organization called the Pride, a plan that not only messed with police records, but also brought Hell to Harlem.
Though still friends, Danny and Luke decided to go their separate ways. Rand spent some time traveling the world looking for a challenge in underground street fights and finally found one when the mysterious stranger Choshin invited him to the island of Liu-Shi. Built around seven different masters with different styles, the island sought kung fu legitimacy by testing its greatest champions against the Iron Fist in the Trial of the Seven Masters. Rand agreed to participate both for the challenge and the opportunity to replace some of his missing chi with that of the masters he defeated.
After being framed for the death of his guide, Danny learned the true history of Liu-Shi: that it was populated by citizens of K?un-Lun who left in disgust at Yu-Ti?s corruption. The council intended to defeat the Iron Fist and grant that power to one of their own in order to regain their status as a heavenly city. At the end of the trials, Danny faced the original One, the second-best warrior in ancient K?un-Lun who tested the Iron Fists. Before Danny faced his own test, Yu-Ti had driven the One out and replaced him with a robot that he could more easily control. Even after being shot with arrows by Choshin, Danny emerged victorious and left the island.
Since then, Danny has teamed up with Shang-Chi to take on a death cult and had a run in with Sabretooth. Back in New York City, Diamondback wanted revenge on Power Man and Iron Fist. so he attacked Luke?s wife Jessica Jones. Together with Daredevil, the former Heroes for Hire sought to take down the villain. Jessica also got in on the action after recovering.
During the events of Hydra?s attempt to form a Secret Empire, Danny and the new Defenders happened to be in New York City when Baron Zemo put a Darkhold dome around the island, keeping all of those heroes trapped along with the regular people.
Whether he?s fighting on his own or with his friends, Danny Rand continues to use his Iron Fist abilities to help the most people possible.
