IRON FIST FRIDAY Vol. 15: Iron Fist co-creator Roy Thomas on the idea for the dragon symbol on the character's chest and how the costume came to be via Caitlin Busch of Inverse: "The one thing that I wanted was some symbol, and that became this dragon to be branded into his chest. This was because I had always loved a Simon and Kirby character from the ‘50s, a Western character called Bullseye who had a target branded on his chest. For some reason, I just liked that idea. Everything else, Gil and I just talked over. He came up with this costume and so forth. I wasn’t too wild about the sort of half-bare legs with the little slippers, but I said, 'Well, I guess that’s kung fu.' [Danny] had the right look. He had this nice, simple, straight mask and so forth. It just flowed. I said, 'This is good. It’s totally different from Master of Kung Fu, from Shang-Chi, and it’ll be a good character.' We immediately went in and did the first issue."
