The Book of Iron Fist
 
The Book of Iron Fist

C3G MARVEL WAVE 6
AVENGERS ARRIVE





The figure used for this unit is a Heroclix Iron Fist figure from the Fantastic Forces set.
Its model number and name are #046 - 048 / Iron Fist.
_________________________________________________________________
Character Bio - At age nineteen Rand was given the opportunity to gain the power of the Iron Fist. He was sent to battle the enormous fire-breathing serpent called Shou-Lao the Undying which lived in a cave outside the city and which ferociously guarded a brazier containing its heart, which had mystically been removed from its body. In their battle Rand grabbed the serpent's body, which bore a scar which imprinted itself upon Rand's chest. Killing the serpent, Rand plunged his hands into the now unguarded brazier containing Shou-Lao's molten heart when he was through his hands shone with a quasi-mystical force and he earned the title "Iron Fist," for he could now summon superhuman energy to reinforce the power of blows struck by his hands.

Re: C3G Iron Fist - Design Phase
 
NAME = IRON FIST
SECRET IDENTITY = DANNY RAND

SPECIES = MUTATE
UNIQUENESS = UNIQUE HERO
CLASS = FIGHTER
PERSONALITY = FOCUSED

SIZE/HEIGHT = MEDIUM 5

LIFE = 5

MOVE = 6

FORCE OF ONE
Before attacking with Iron Fist, you may choose to either:
  • attack any or all figures adjacent to Iron Fist, rolling each attack separately; or
  • add 3 to Iron Fist's Attack number this turn, and while attacking Iron Fist has the Super Strength special power.

FOCUSED CHI
Once per round, after taking a turn with Iron Fist, you may reveal your X Order Marker on this card and remove one Wound Marker from this card or the Army Card of a Unique Hero adjacent to Iron Fist.

STEALTH LEAP 12
Instead of his normal move, Iron Fist may use Stealth Leap. Stealth Leap has a move of 3. When counting spaces for Stealth Leap, ignore elevations. Iron Fist may leap over water without stopping, leap over figures without becoming engaged, and leap over obstacles such as ruins. Iron Fist may not leap more than 12 levels up or down in a single leap. When using Stealth Leap, Iron Fist will not take any leaving engagement attacks.

Re: The Book of Iron Fist - Design Phase
 
This was Hahma's write-up and I discussed it a little bit with Griff and Bats and so ended up removing the SA that was on his card. Super Strength cannot affect DO in a SA, only in a normal attack. I combined his ability to have Super Strength with his Whirlwind Assault so that he can have one more ability - Stealth Leap. Iron Fist Assault can be changed if needed.

Doing some research on the character Stealth Leap seemed a fitting power for him, so I wanted to squeeze it in if possible. The issue this presents is his becoming too similar to Beast in that respect with Whirlwind Assault and Stealth Leap with 5 attack and defense.

I think Focused Chi is an awesome power and is dead on. Hopefully Focused Chi and this souped up version of Whirlwind Assault are enough to differentiate him from Beast.

I don't know too much about this character so feedback and criticism are much appreciated from those might know more about him.

Cool write up man, Iron Fist Assault really has a lot going on in that one power. I'd lean towards cutting either the multi-attack or re-attack because that is over kill IMO.

I agree and it is definitely up for discussion. Hopefully I accurately laid out the options in the previous post.

I tend to think with Whirlwind Assault it is already powerful enough to leave alone and not mess with. I really don't know if it is accurate to the character to give him that many potential attacks in one turn though. :shrug:

Re: The Book of Iron Fist - Design Phase
 
That's a potential of 12 attacks in one turn, I don't think he is faster than Flash.

Re: The Book of Iron Fist - Design Phase
 
From my understanding he is a guy who is at peak physical performance for a human (base stats) and when he summons the power of the Iron Fist he goes nuts. He has Super Strength in his fist and can punch people with incredible power.

Perhaps it doesn't make sense to combine the Whirlwind and Super Strength. I know he needs to have Super Strength represented in his attack though somehow without giving him the SS symbol. I've debated giving him an auto skull or doing something with his focused chi to tie in with summoning of his fist.

I'm fine with dropping the double attack piece of Whirlwind Assault. I've got a few Marvel books I'll take a look at tonight and see if they shed any more light on him or his abilities.

Happened to see this thread and thought I'd say great job GP with the changes. :D

Here's something from Marvel Comic Database to help others understand some of his powers/abilities.

I'll leave you guys to it.

Powers and AbilitiesEdit

Powers

Chi Augmentation: Plunging his fists into the molten heart of Shou-Lao the Undying gave Rand the power of the Iron Fist, allowing him to focus his chi and enhance his natural abilities to extraordinary levels. Through concentration, Iron Fist can harness his spiritual energy, or chi, to augment his physical and mental capabilities to even super human levels. Recently his powers, skill, and awareness have been all augmented to vastly higher levels [2] ;while the extent is unknown, it was stated his sense of sense of self has grown ten thousand fold and his capabilities now posses infinite depth. He no longer tires from using his chi and is capable of using his powers for greater tasks.[3] Examples include destroying a train with the iron fist punch as it collided with his attack at full speed, healing himself from several external injuries, and detoxifying unwittingly ingested poison in his body with his chi.
  • Peak Human Strength: Typically, Iron Fist possesses the pinnacle physical strength of a human man of his particular age, height, and build that engages in intense regular exercise. He possesses the peak level of strength a human can reach without being considered superhuman. With the use of his spiritual energy, Iron Fist is capable of augmenting his strength to incredible superhuman levels which limits are unknown but he was able to go toe to toe with a being who easily manhandled the likes of Luke Cage, and brink down and break off a foot of a monster hundreds of feet tall with one strike[4].
  • Peak Human Speed: Iron Fist is capable of running and moving at speeds greater than even the finest human athlete and is naturally as fast as a human can be without being considered superhuman. Iron Fist can use his spiritual energy to augment his speed to incredible superhuman levels which limits are unknown. He was able to hit a large monster over a hundred feet tall, nearly a hundred times, in the span of a few seconds at speeds faster than the human eye can track/see[5], move faster than a bullet[6] and so on.
  • Peak Human Stamina: Iron Fist's musculature is enhanced to generate less fatigue toxins than the musculature of humans. He can exert himself physically at peak capacity for over an hour before fatigue begins to impair him.
  • Peak Human Agility: Iron Fist's natural agility, balance, and bodily coordination are superior to those of any Olympic athlete that has ever competed, and is agile as it is humanly possible.
  • Peak Human Reflexes: Iron Fist's reaction time if superior to that of any Olympic athlete that has ever competed, and are enhanced to the point where they could be considered superhuman. His reflexes are so efficient that he can dodge point blank gun fire, catch arrows in mid flight, and has even been capable off snatching and tagging bullets out of the air[7] etc.
  • Peak Human Durability: The tissues of Iron Fist's body are harder than those of humans. While still vulnerable to physical injury, Daniel is able to use his spiritual energy to augment his durability to vast superhuman levels. He was able to strike a train carrying "enough raw explosives to make the nuclear bombing of Hiroshima look like nothing more than a sparkler," and survive the explosion at point blank range, without any sign of harm.[8]
  • Chi Enhanced Healing: If he sustains injury or illness, Iron Fist can focus his chi for the purposes of healing his injuries. [9] On the brink of death after a battle with Radion the Atomic Man, Daniel received a vision of Yu-Ti revealing that "the Iron Fist is not a weapon but a force of will which could perform miracles including healing," saving his life. By focusing enough he can even purge his own body of poison, however Daniel experienced great pain in the process. [10] Recently he has proven capable of healing himself unconsciously and does not feel drained in the slightest. [11] He is also capable of channeling this energy into other people, allowing them to heal with more efficiency as well.
  • Iron Fist Punch: By summoning his chi and focusing it into his hand, he can draw upon the superhuman energy derived from the heart of the mystic serpent Shou-Lao and make his fist inhumanly powerful and super humanly resistant to injury and pain. This "iron fist" technique does not involve a physical transformation of any kind, simply a psychic channeling of concentrated natural energy. With his fist in this state, Iron Fist can shatter wood and brick, rip through steel, and punch his opponents with extraordinary concussive force without sustaining injury to himself. He can hit with such vast force that he has knocked out incredibly durable Super humans such as the likes of Colossus with his Iron Fist[12]. The act of summoning and using his chi for the Iron Fist technique used to mentally drains him after long periods of use but no more.
  • Mind Meld: Iron Fist can use his power to temporarily fuse his consciousness with another person, resulting in a sharing of knowledge, emotions, and memories.
  • Energy Absorption: At times, he has absorbed energy directed at himself and channeled it to augment his own power.
  • Heightened Awareness: Recently his awareness has increased to new levels. To what level it is unclear. His senses are so great he can hear the sweat running down the cheek of a person in another room, and even with his back turned he is able to sense when a complete stranger (The Iron Fist Killer.) is going to strike before they actually do.[13].
  • Enhanced Sight: He has unusually keen eyesight, but it is unclear if it extends to superhuman level.
  • Environmental Adaptation: His entire body is oriented to combat, enabling him to adapt to any environment with minimal exposure.
Chi Manipulation:The Iron Fist grants Danny with many abilities that he has possibly not yet learned, such as channeling the Shou-Lao chi into a ranged weapon, such as a gun or bow, to increase its striking capabilities; this technique is used both by Orson Randall and Wu Ao-Shi. Also another ability demonstrated by Orson Randall is hypnosis, Danny has mastered this ability according to himself after being shown it.

Abilities

Master Martial Artist: Danny is a master of K'un-Lun's martial arts and many of Earth's. Among them being Kunlunquan, Shaolinquan, Judo, Aikido, Karate, and has even displayed proficient boxing, loose brawling and street fighting tactics. Danny is one of the greatest martial artists who has ever walked the earth; having held his own against Captain America in a contest of pure skill, defeated the likes of Sabertooth while temporarily blind, and even defeated Wolverine in a fight along with Colossus, and Nightcrawler. Recently his skill has been augmented to unknown levels. He, for example, possesses infinite ways to kill a man, such as the Black-Black Poison Touch which uses his chi to kill anyone in the close vicinity[15].
Weapons Master: He has been trained in the use of virtually all martial arts weapons.
Nervous System Control: He has near-complete control over his nervous system, enabling him to deaden himself to pain and pass lie detector tests.
Skilled Acrobat: Danny is a skilled acrobat and gymnast capable of many difficult feats.
Multilingual: He can speak fluent American English, Chinese and Japanese.

Re: The Book of Iron Fist - Design Phase
 
Thanks Hahma :) nice of you to pop in.

I think after reading this the power level for him needs to go up a tad. Here are some excerpts that stood out to me:

Quote:

Peak Human Speed
He was able to hit a large monster over a hundred feet tall, nearly a hundred times, in the span of a few seconds at speeds faster than the human eye can track/see[5], move faster than a bullet[6] and so on.
Quote:

Iron Fist Punch
He can hit with such vast force that he has knocked out incredibly durable Super humans such as the likes of Colossus with his Iron Fist[12].
Quote:

Nothing too drastic, but maybe try to get him to 240-250?

- bump him to 5 life
- Change his attack power to allow him to do multiple attacks or one big attack

Maybe lower his base attack to 4
His attack power gives him the option to attack 3 times (super speed punch) OR add 4 dice to one attack w/ SS (iron fist punch)?

Those changes look good. I don't think the whirlwind attack was appropriate but the 3 attacks is good :up:.

Great write-up.

FORCE OF ONE
When Iron Fist attacks an opponent's figure with his normal attack you may either:
  • roll 4 additional attack dice, and while attacking he is considered to have the Super Strength ability
  • roll attack dice as normal, and after attacking you may attack two additional times

This wording (other than SS bit) is modeled after Hawk Swoop.
