Fair warning, I'm registered as a lethal weapon.Iron Fist intro quote
The Immortal Iron Fist is a character from the Marvel Comics. He is a master of the K'un-Lun and various martial arts, and has the power to harness the mystical spiritual energy, or chi. He gained the power of the Iron Fist through defeating Shou-Lao.
Iron Fist is a playable character in Ultimate Marvel vs. Capcom 3.
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 superhuman levels.
Iron Fist reflects on what to do now that he's defeated Galactus. He ends up reforming a new version of Heroes For Hire alongside Luke Cage, Colleen Wing, Misty Knight, Ryu, Chun-Li, and Batsu Ichimonji.
While Iron Fist hasn't made an appearance in the game in person, he and Ken can be seen in a billboard promoting a fight between the two in one of the stages of New Metro City.
Iron Fist is possibly one of the best characters on ground. His game consists on rushing and locking the opponent into a flurry of ground moves, eventually getting them into air combos that lead them to ground follow-ups. Possessing a great ground mobility (with the fastest dash and wave-dash in the game), most of his Special moves leads into or follow into other Specials, allowing him to create quick chains of attacks (that have variations depending which side you're holding) with very different effects, like crumble states, wall-bounces and OTGs to follow up into Hyper Combos. He can also buff himself, increasing his attack power, defense or meter builder (and he retains these power-ups as an assist).
