The Daughters of the Dragon are the duo of Colleen Wing and Misty Knight, fictional characters appearing in American comic books published by Marvel Comics. The team first appeared in Deadly Hands of Kung Fu #32 (January 1977),[1] introduced in the early 1970s in early Iron Fist stories.

Publication history[edit]

The Daughters of the Dragon, as a team, first appeared in Marvel Team-Up #64 (December 1977), and were created by Chris Claremont and Marshall Rogers.

In late 2005/early 2006 they gained a limited series (the first Daughters of the Dragon series ever) which introduced both the style and many of the plots and characters that were later featured in the latest incarnation of the Heroes for Hire book.

The Daughters of the Dragon received an entry in the All-New Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe A-Z #3 (2006).

Fictional organization history[edit]

The name comes from an attempted slight from Iron Fist foe Davos, the Steel Serpent, said in a tongue-in-cheek way while he fled from the two heroines.[2] That story, where they guest-starred with Spider-Man, was the first of many featuring their partnership as heroines in their own merits. Since Iron Fist's first series had been canceled at that time, the two characters followed with him into his guest appearances in the series Luke Cage, Power Man.[volume & issue needed] Shortly thereafter the two male characters became co-stars in the renamed Power Man/Iron Fist series, with Colleen and Misty as supporting cast, who operated Knightwing Restorations Inc.[volume & issue needed]

In other media[edit]

A Daughters of the Dragon TV series was in development in 2001.[3]
