The brother of Harold Meachum—or the facilitator of Danny Rand’s parents deaths—Ward Meachum spends his life building up a criminal empire that he hides from the rest of the family. When Harold dies, Ward targets the Iron Fist, thinking the hero killed his brother. From there, he has only made more bad decisions that have threatened the entire planet.
A Grudge Begins
Upon finding his brother Harold murdered, Ward assumed that Danny Rand AKA Iron Fist had something to do with it. He worked with his niece Joy and the Steel Serpent to take the Iron Fist down, but both left his side when they discovered his other criminal endeavors.
This pushed him further into the world of corruption, making Iron Fist (and later Power Man) his regular enemies.
The Power of Desperation
Though a ruthless businessman, Ward exhibits no super powers. That is until he gets his hands on the Power Gem of Quon, which he uses to bring Master Khan back to life.
Like his brother Harold, Ward hates Danny Rand—not because of his identity as Iron Fist, but because Rand wants to gain more control of Rand-Meachum Inc.
