Powers: Dragonfist was a master of martial arts, and employed a personal force-field belt. The force-field made him nigh-invulnerable, and gave him the power to shatter objects with his fists. The belt itself possessed no force-field and could be damaged or destroyed with sufficient force.

 

History: (Spider-Girl#24) - A nameless movie assistant trained under the famous actor/martial artist Spike Yi. The assistant even got a duplicate of Spike Yi's tattoo, a depiction of Shao-Lao, dragon of K'un-L'un. The assistant grew jealous of Yi's fame, and determined to make a name for himself using a force-field belt that augmented his martial art skills. As Dragonfist he robbed a national bank and fended off police officers at the scene. He told them he was the world's foremost martial artist, and demanded the world take notice of him. Phil Urich and Peter Parker investigated the crime scene, and later spied on Spike Yi, who they suspected because of his Shao-Lao tattoo. "Mayday" Parker was also there on assignment from the Daily Bugle, and Dragonfist (in his civilian identity) was more than happy to introduce them to Spike Yi, throwing more suspicion his way. "Mayday" later changed into Spider-Girl and confronted Dragonfist as he broke into another bank. Iron Fist also made an appearance, guessing that Dragonfist may have been a former pupil of his. Spider-Girl used her ability to sense a foe's weakest point to direct Iron Fist's attention to Dragonfist's belt. Iron Fist shattered the belt with a single blow, and after unmasking Dragonfist realized he had never trained him.

PROFILE BY FUTURE

CLARIFICATIONS: Not to be confused with:


Spike Yi

 

A famous martial artist and star in a series of martial arts movies. He was trained by Iron Fist, but does not possess any of the superhuman abilities associated with Iron Fist's K'un-L'un martial arts. They had a falling out when Yi decided to use his skills to earn fame and fortune. Spike Yi was briefly interviewed by "Mayday" Parker during a movie shoot, but was interrupted by Iron Fist. Iron Fist expressed his displeasure with Yi's lifestyle and asked him if he was Dragonfist. Yi denied it, smacked around Iron Fist, and walked off.
