Powers/Abilities: Described as a corpse engine, the Fist is a demonic creature that can be summoned by the Hand after they sacrifice 100 of their own members. Massive in size and strength, and incredibly savage, the Fist carries a sword in one hand and has a spiked weapon in place of his left arm, one attached to another spiked weapon on a long chain. While only one of the Fists was seen, it was indicated that there are others available to be summoned.
(Daredevil V#5 (fb) - BTS) - Seeking revenge on Tenfingers for betraying them and using their magics against them, the Hand summoned the Fist, a half-dead beast infused with evil energies through the mystic arts. Referred to as a "corpse-engine", the Fist could only be summoned when the Hand sacrificed the lives of 100 of their own members. They unleashed the creature against Tenfingers and his followers at the Church of the Sheltering Hands.
(Daredevil V#4) - The Fist arrived at the Church, slaughtering anyone in its way.
(Daredevil V#5) - The Fist began killing Church members, throwing the corpses at Tenfingers with the cult leader shooting guns at it. Tenfingers briefly distracted the Fist by transferring some of the Hand's magics to the civilians nearby. Daredevil attacked and the Fist recognized him as a mortal enemy of the Hand. The Fist savagely attacked, but Daredevil soon managed to behead the creature.
(Daredevil V#28) - In the temple of the Beast of the Hand in rural China, a Fist was summoned to torture Daredevil, but the Beast soon disappeared, taking the Fist and the temple with him.

It is likely that the Fist shares some affiliations with the Beast of the Hand.
