First Appearance: Strange Tales I#77 (October, 1960)

 

Powers/Abilities: Khan has magical powers, enabling him to distort reality, levitate and shrink objects and beings. He can alter his appearance and possibly transform into non-human forms. He can form shields, fire energy blasts, and cast magical spells, calling on the mystic principalities, such as Cyttorak, the Faltine, and Raggadorr, for power. He apparently derives power from the worship of the people of K'un-Lun.

Under certain circumstances, usually requiring outside assistance via an item of arcane power (such as the Jade Tiger, the Jade Crystal, and the Power Gem of Quon), Khan can travel between dimensions, specifically between Earth and K'un-Lun.

As Tyrone King he rode a fast motorcycle and used a .44 Magnum.

Iron allegedly weakens mages of Khan's order, whatever that means...

History:
(Namor I#22 (fb) - BTS) - Master Khan is human.

(Iron Fist I#7 (fb) - BTS) - "In my youth, I had no such dreams of power. I was a scholar, who sought only to love his wife and children and learn all he could about of the universe around him. But the king who sat on Halwan's Lion Throne knew of my work, knew I was an adept in the occult ways, a man of...power. He wanted that power for himself. I made the mistake of refusing him. My refusal angered the king. He took my family hostage, promising to spare their lives if I served him. And to prove the seriousness of his intentions...he had my youngest daughter tortured. She was a frail child. She died on the rack. My soul--everything that was good in me died with her."

(Power Man and Iron Fist#119 (fb) - BTS) - Master Khan came to be worshipped as a god by the people of K'un-Lun, deriving power from their worship.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#119 (fb) - BTS) - Khan served as the guide and protector of the people of K'un-Lun, demanding only blood in return.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#119 (fb)) - Many centuries ago, over the course of a year, Chiantang, one of the great dragons dwelling in an undersea city near K'un-Lun, leveled K'un-Lun as vengeance for one of its natives marrying his niece and then abandoning her, leaving her homeless and penniless. Khan, who held the city close to his heart, summoned Chiantang before him, and the mighty dragon begged for mercy. Khan prepared to punish Chiantang, until he heard of Chiantang's vengeance on the mortal who had wronged his sister: Using a favor from a god, Chiantang had transformed the mortal, a fisherman named Shou Lao, into a lowly, fire-breathing serpent, imprisoned him in a cave outside K'un-Lun, and then ripped out his heart and placed it--alive and throbbing--into a caldron within the cave, where it would beat until time's end. Shou Lao would writhe in shame and agony forever and become known as Shou Lao the Undying.
    Amused by this original action, Khan forgave Chiantang, but warned him not to arouse his anger again.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#75 (fb) - BTS) - For generations, young warriors marched off, hoping to win the Iron Fist and, as planned, they all fell to Shou-Lao, serving as blood sacrifices (and thus power) to Master Khan.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#75 (fb) - BTS) - The Heart of the Dragon became the focus of Khan's power on K'un-Lun.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#75 (fb) - BTS) - Outsiders wandering into K'un-Lun were often sacrificed to Master Khan.

(Marvel Premiere#22 (fb) - BTS) - Master Khan acquired the Book of Many Things (aka the Sacred Volume of Kāli).

(Marvel Premiere#22 (fb)) - Centuries ago, living on Earth, Master Khan accepted an exiled samurai as his pupil, convincing him to turn his talents towards the art of the ninja. while also training him to develop true mystical powers. During his studies, Khan presented him with the Book of Many Things. Reading of the city of K'un-Lun, reputed to have the most skillful fighters in the world and whose leaders posed a threat to Khan's plans, the Ninja determined to conquer the city. The Ninja was ultimately defeated and his spirit trapped within the Book.
    Khan supposedly created a pocket dimension solely for the Ninja's use, summoning him as desired to oppose and/or slay his foes (see comments).

(Power Man and Iron Fist#74 (fb) - BTS) - Centuries ago, the Jade Tiger was stolen from Master Khan by his enemies. They broke off it's head and front paws and separated the parts, placing spells of concealment about them to prevent Khan from relocating them.

 

 

(Strange Tales I#77) "The Strange Magic of Master Khan"- Master Khan became known as a wealthy trader and a dabbler in the arts of magic and occult in the Orient.

 

 

 

 

(Strange Tales I#77) <1960> - Khan refused to sell his dragon ship to Hawk Gormey. Refusing to accept this, Gormey had his men give Khan's servants a drug that put them to sleep, at which point Gormey and his men pulled them off the ship and sailed off with it. When Khan argued with Gormey, the ship's new captain slapped him and told him they'd drop him off at some island. Khan responded by levitating out over the ocean's waters and then casting a spell that transformed the entire dragon ship and it's crew into a ship in a bottle, where they were to remain forever!

 

 

(Marvel Premiere#15 (fb) - BTS / Power Man and Iron Fist#75 (fb) - BTS) - The deaths of Heather Rand and Wendell Rand'Kai served as blood sacrifices to Master Khan.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#119 (fb)) - After Daniel Rand slew Shou Lao and gained the Iron Fist power from him, Chiantang prepared to level K'un-Lun once again. Master Khan appeared before him and ordered him to cease; when Chiantang refused, Master Khan transformed him back into his mortal form and imprisoned him in a dungeon deep below K'un-Lun. From the waters in which Chiantang had dwelled, Khan fashioned a magical sword, Dragonslayer, able to be used to banish Chiantang to a netherworld forever.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#75 (fb) - BTS) - Khan saw K'un-Lun as having failed him and plotted against it.

(Iron Fist I#7 (fb) - BTS) - Master Khan traveled to Earth and began plotting the takeover of the nation of Halwan.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#97 (fb) - BTS) - Khan recruited Ward Meachum as his agent on Earth (see comments).

(Marvel Premiere#24 (fb) - BTS) - Master Khan sought to slay princess Azir of Halwan; his agent, Gamal Hassan arranged the use of the Monstroid, assuring Khan that it would kill her.

(Marvel Premiere#24) - After Iron Fist destroyed the Monstroid, Khan chastised Hassan for his failure, then sent him to learn Iron Fist's weaknesses.

(Iron Fist I#1 - BTS) - Master Khan manipulated Iron Man into attacking Iron Fist by framing Iron Fist for the death of Daniel Cauley. Hassan, assisted by the Steel Serpent (Davos), captured Colleen Wing.

(Iron Fist I#2) - Hassan brought Colleen Wing to Master Khan, who expressed displeasure that she had not been totally conditioned, despite Hassan's best efforts. Khan, apparently transforming into a monstrous, cat-like form, slew Hassan, intending to use him as a trap to lure in Iron Fist.

(Iron Fist I#5 (fb) - BTS) - Master Khan freed Angar the Screamer from prison, regenerating and modifying his powers.

(Iron Fist I#5) - Master Khan complemented Angar on his completion of the indoctrination of Colleen Wing, who now followed Khan's orders.

(Iron Fist I#6) - Iron Fist arrived to rescue Colleen, ultimately using his chi (life force) to reach her mind and break her conditioning. However, this left him exhausted as Khan, Angar, and several of Khan's agents arrived. Khan ordered them to kill Iron Fist.

(Iron Fist I#7) - With Colleen's aid, Iron Fist defeated Khan's agents, including Angar and Khumbala Bey, confronting and interrupting Khan as he performed a ritual to various dark beings, calling them brother and attempting to summon them to Earth. Khan restrained Iron Fist in mystic bonds, relayed a questionable tale of his origins, and asked Iron Fist to leave him to conquer Halwan, offering him a return to K'un-Lun in exchange, opening a portal to the realm to prove his point. When Iron Fist declined, Khan offered him vengeance on Yü-Ti, claiming that he had allowed his mother's death (having known she was coming and having not sent the archers to protect her from the wolves he knew were there). Enraged, Iron Fist smashed the portal, causing a vortex that pulled Khan into it.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#66) - Working out the Middle Eastern restaurant Alexandra's Topkapi Cabaret, Khan--keeping his identity secret by working through agents, hired Misty Knight and Colleen Wing to steal the Jade Tiger (possibly from Montenegro). He correctly dismissed the presence of Power Man at the restaurant as coincidence.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#73) - Khan watched through a mystic sphere as Bob Diamond kissed Colleen Wing.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#74) - Khan sent the Ninja to steal the Jade Tiger's paw amulet from Bob Diamond, knocking out Colleen Wing and stabbing Diamond in the process.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#74 - BTS) - The Ninja stole the Jade Tiger's head and other paw amulets from Lin Sun and Abe Brown, respectively.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#74) - From the Kismet Curio shop in the Village Khan restored the Jade Tiger, sending the Ninja to delay Power Man and Iron Fist when they tracked him to that location. The delay worked and Khan infused his power into the intact Tiger, which enlarged in size, opening a portal in space which he rode the Tiger through, though Power Man and Iron Fist followed him through it.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#75) - Khan escaped the heroes, vanishing into K'un-Lun.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#75 - BTS) - Khan reestablished his connections to Yü-Ti, commanding him to utilize Power Man and Iron Fist to wipe out an entire generation of H'ylthri to teach the people of K'un-Lun the folly of thwarting his will (indicating that they might be slaughtered any time he wished it). Afterward, he had Power Man drugged and Iron Fist ambushed and knocked out.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#75) - Yü-Ti prepared a blood sacrifice of Iron Fist to Master Khan, revealing Khan as one of their gods and explaining why he had previously sought to destroy the realm. Lei-Kung the Thunderer led Power Man to the chamber in time to save Iron Fist; after he was freed, Khan summoned the Ninja to slay him. After a fierce struggle, Iron Fist defeated the Ninja and Khan sent the Ninja back to his unearthly plane.  Khan prepared to depart, promising vengeance, but Power Man grabbed him and held him and Iron Fist threatened to use the power of Shou Lao on him, causing Khan to beg for mercy. Khan used the Jade crystal that periodically drew K'un-Lun to Earth to open a portal there, chastising Yü-Ti when he questioned the wisdom of this. After Khan once again promised to see his enemies suffer the torments of the damned, Iron Fist smashed the Jade crystal before leaving so that no others would be pulled into the sacrifices to Khan.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#119 (fb)) - Chiantang's niece tried to rescue her uncle after three years of imprisonment. She took human form to pose as a guard, and when she undid his bonds he decapitated her with the Dragonslayer. Maddened after learning what he'd done, Chiantang returned to dragon form and traveled up through the rock into K'un-Lun, attacking it once again. Having suffered a great loss of power at the hands of Power Man and Iron Fist, Master Khan was unable to stop Chiantang, and he fled alongside Yü-Ti.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#97 (fb) - BTS) - Fera gained human form via the power of Shirrair. Master Khan made Fera his agent, using the Amulet of Shirrair to control her. Khan was an abusive master to Fera, but the Amulet made her unable to resist him.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#97 (fb) - BTS) - Khan dispatched Fera to Earth to assist Ward Meachum and his agents in acquiring the Power Gem of Quon that they might bring Master Khan to Earth and usurp the Iron Fist power.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#97) - From K'un-Lun, Master Khan commanded Fera to take the Power Gem and return to Meachum's base, calling her away from a battle with Iron Fist and several allies.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#98) - When Ward Meachum sought to avoid Iron Fist, Khan commanded him from K'un-Lun commanding him to kill him and bring him his heart. In response, Meachum sent Shades and Commanche to kill Iron Fist.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#99) - From Rand-Meachum Industries Suburban Long Island Plant, at the appointed time, the Power Gem of Quon was used to summon Master Khan to Earth.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#100) - Khan cast a spell over the Power Gem, sending it back to Iron Fist, and it stole his spirit (including the power of the Iron Fist) before returning to Khan, who decided to remain on Earth and see what sport this plane offered. Bob Diamond, Colleen Wing, Misty Knight, Rafe Scarfe, el Aguila, and Power Man aided Iron Fist in assaulting Khan's base. Iron Fist gained power as he approached the Gem, but as he began to restore himself, Khan arrived and reversed the flow of power. Power Man arrived to help, and while Khan focused his powers, Iron Fist began to gain ground in restoring his own soul. As Khan struggled to overpower the pair, Fera suddenly leapt at him, tearing the Amulet of Shirrair from him and freeing herself from his control. Distracted, Khan was unable to stop Power Man from grabbing him, and the further distraction allowed Iron Fist to shatter the Power Gem, restoring his own soul and ending the spell that allowed Khan to remain on Earth, apparently sending him back to K'un-Lun.

(Namor I#25 (fb)) - Returning to Earth under unknown circumstances, Khan learned that the Super-Skrull had become trapped in the radiation belts around Earth, dying of some type of super leukemia. Khan pulled the Skrull down from orbit and offered to cure him with his magic if the Skrull would help him destroy Iron Fist. The Skrull agreed, and Khan used his powers to transform him into Bobby Wright, Captain Hero, transforming him both physically and hypnotized him into believing himself to be a young boy that Iron Fist would connect with and take on almost a fatherly role. To keep an eye on things, he created a pair of identities for himself, one as the woman acting as "Bobby's" so-called guardian and one as Sergeant Tyrone King; in the latter he mystically established himself as a twelve year veteran of the New York Police Department. In that form he seduced Misty Knight.

 

 

 

(Power Man and Iron Fist#111) - As "Bobby's guardian", Khan pretended to be an indigent woman, keeping her foster son Bobby around for the money she got for his care, refusing to take him to a research center to treat him for his powers which were killing him. Meanwhile, "Bobby/Captain Hero" worked his way into the lives of Power Man and Iron Fist.

 

 

 

 

 

(Power Man and Iron Fist#112 - BTS) - Power Man and Iron Fist convinced "Bobby" to go to Project: PEGASUS for research and treatment.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#113 - BTS) - "Bobby" briefly served as a pawn of the Fomorian Bres.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#117) - Tyrone King met with Misty, despite criticism from Colleen Wing.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#121) - King took Misty out on a date.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#122) - After spending the night with Misty, King stopped at a local coffee shop for his daily 4pm "three over easy, side of home, and a large OJ." He was distracted by a robbery across the street which he then interrupted, shooting the three criminals in the shoulder or knees, saving their hostages, but seeming not to care either way. Power Man later berated him for his reckless behavior and his treatment of Misty, during which Tyrone just got up and walked out. He was similarly unaffected by a berating from his NYPD superior Denny, after which he followed a lead to the Manhattan Waterfront, recognizing Chiantang as he impersonated Power Man and then blowing a hole in his head with his .44 Magnum as he began to turn back into dragon form. He watched as Colleen beheaded Chiantang before he could reform, and then took off on his cycle as Misty kissed Iron Fist (or a simulacrum of him).

(Power Man and Iron Fist#123) - Tyrone King participated in the investigation of the alleged racist murderer Glowworm. King stunned him with a series of .44 Magnums to the chest, and Glowworm was arrested. Later, when the military obtained custody of Glowworm, King obtained a court order to have him returned to police custody, and when the military refused, he worked with Power Man and the Falcon to take him back.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#125 (fb) - BTS) - Captain Hero beat Iron Fist (actually a simulacrum of him) to death, a murder for which Power Man was framed.

(Power Man and Iron Fist#125) - King was one of several others (including District Attorney Blake Tower, NYPD Captain Kris Keating (actually the Foreigner), several FBI agents, and Gordy, agent of S.M.I.L.E.) in charge of investigating the death of Iron Fist. King got the story from Cage himself, and when Cage broke out later, King stood by and let it happen, handing his badge over to Keating, and telling him it didn't make a difference. As he left on his motorcycle, it exploded suddenly from a bomb placed there by John Lumus, who sought vengeance on Power Man and Iron Fist and all of their allies. Covered in flames, Tyrone merely patted himself off and walked away, cursing the lost of the bike he had loved.

(Namor I#20) - When Misty Knight, Colleen Wing, and Rafe Scarfe began to uncover evidence that Iron Fist had not actually been killed, King confronted them, telling them that this was something of particular interest to him.

(Namor I#22) - Investigating King, Scarfe's assistant Pam found that there were no records of him anywhere, either of his police career or his personal life. She further pointed out the significance of the name Tyrone, which means King. King then confronted and attacked Scarfe and his assistant.

(Namor I#24 (fb) - BTS) - King revealed himself to be Master Khan to Scarfe, telling him of his activities involving Captain Hero and Tyrone King.

(Namor I#24) -  King then tried to adjust Scarfe's mind, erasing his recent memories.

(Namor I#25) - King's efforts on Scarfe failed for unknown reasons, and he revealed what Khan had told him to Colleen and Misty.

 

(Namor I#25) - Master Khan appeared amidst the battled between Wolverine, Namor, Namorita, and the H'ylthri, banishing Wolverine to a distant place and and obliterating the H'ylthri horde. Restraining Namorita with the Crimson Bands of Cyttorak, Khan explained that while he had not succeeded in slaying Iron Fist, he had enjoyed the fact that Iron Fist had been captured by the H'ylthri and would have suffered a slow and terrible fate as the H'yltri young drained his life for nourishment...a fate in many ways worse than death. Namor had freed Iron Fist, saving him from that fate.
    As punishment, Khan chose a penalty with which Namor had already had experience; he stripped Namor of his memory and his very identity, sending him far, far away from that place...to wander without hope of rescue...for the rest of his long and miserable life.
    Having no quarrel with Namorita, he left her only with the knowledge that her cousin was lost to her until the end of time.

 

 

 

 

(Namor I#27) - Khan was amused when Namorita located Namor much later, and Namor had punched her out and taken off again.

(Namor I#28) - Laughing as he observed Namorita's recovery from afar, Khan revealed that he had also altered Namor's mind so that if anything reminded him of his past life, he would flee by any means necessary, including the use of deadly force against the people and things he loved.

(Namor I#32) - After Namor recovered his mind in battle with Dr. Doom, Khan appeared, mocking the two battling kings, as he transformed Doom's ocean ship into a ship in a bottle within his grasp.

(Namor I#33) - Khan impersonated Namor, placing the ship in a bottle in his office in the Oracle building and quickly making changes, such as telling Oracle's Board of Trustees to sell Oracle's land-holding in Alaska to Roxxon Oil. Studying Atlantis' ancient lore, Khan became intrigued with the imminent return of the Unforgiven Dead of Atlantis. His excitement turned to rage as Namor succeeded in shattering the bottle that held the ship, destroying the enchantment and freeing everything in it, including Namor, Doom, Iron Fist, Colleen Wing, and Misty Knight, as well as the ship itself and millions of gallons of water which flooded and nearly shattered the top floors of Oracle, Inc. Khan told them that he had toyed with them long enough and would now kill them all. Doom responded with a mystic blast that knocked Khan from his feet. As he rose, Namor forced his way towards him, despite Khan's mystic barrage. Khan continued to disparage Namor, who eventually reached him, grabbed his head, and tore it from his body.
    Khan's disembodied head told Namor that he was a fool who could not escape his fate, his true ruin, his cruel destiny which awaited him beneath the waves...in Atlantis.
    Then Khan spoke no more.

The Contradictions of Khan...

Update on Shou Lou...

    The story that Lei Kung told Daniel about how and why Chiantang destroyed K'un-Lun was accurate, as far as he knew.  However, years later, a letters page in an issue of BLACK PANTHER revealed that Shou Lao, the "mortal fisherman" who had married and then disgraced the Dragon King's daughter, was actually a dragon himself and that he had assumed human form in order to hide in K'un-Lun.  In other words, Shou Lao was never really a human being.

More from Donald Campbell

    I always liked this guy. It's amazing out of how many times, how often he's in shadows, or just poorly captured in image.

    Khan is a title given to rulers or other important people in Asian countries. His name thus means Master ruler or Master Master.
Similarly, Tyrone means "king," so Tyrone King means King King

    I also love how retcons have changed the map of the final few issues of PM&IF. Half the cast are impostors! Tyrone King is really Master Khan, but Kris Keating is really the Foreigner (or possibly one of his agents); Captain Hero is the Super Skrull, who murders Iron Fist, but that's okay, because he wasn't real either. Isn't there a movie where at the end everyone proves to be fake, as one by one they all strip off their masks to reveal radically different personae?
When do we find out that Cage, Misty Knight and Colleen Wing were also other people?  :)

    "The Strange Magic of Master Khan" story in Strange Tales I#77 is reprinted in Where Monsters Dwell#5 (September, 1970), which is a little less pricey.

    OK, MAYBE...MAYBE Isabella didn't intend to the Master Khan from Strange Tales#77 to be the character he was using. Perhaps he made him up on his own after he got finished reading this issue. Magical character from the orient, named Master Khan, wearing similar robes, same hair pattern, sporting the freaky trademark hair deal, and...oh yeah, he uses that same ship in the bottle trick. Gotta be the same guy...
    Anyway, my rule of thumb is to use the date of publication for stories not having any direct ties to the modern era in which no year is otherwise inferred, so it would have occurred in 1960.

I've often wondered if it was the Super-Skrull's battle, with Walter "Sasquatch" Langkowski, that attracted Khan's attention. Remember; the Sasquatch was actually a Great Beast "playing possum" in Walt's body, at the time!
