[show]The Iron Fist comic book series was originally inspired by the success of the Kung Fu (1972) television series. The hidden land of K'un L'un was inspired by various stories, including James Hilton's Lost Horizon and tales of Tibet. Much of the original series was inspired by the Golden Age Centaur Comics character Amazing Man, who was a westerner who gained super abilities while studying in a hidden Tibet'like land. Amazing Man, as his civilian identity of John Aman, was added to Iron Fist continuity in the Immortal Iron Fist series.
