Danny leads spiderman to the monastery where he explains everything that conversation went like this:
After stoping in front of a huge fire Spider-Man tells Danny "talk."
Danny sighed "K'un-Lun, is a very special place. The mystical heart of the world. As such it has been protected for the outside for centuries. I was a wayward child. Who turned my back on one empire to embrace my destiny with another. I was trained by the elders. And told one day I would usher in an arrow of peace. As king of K'un-Lun. So I trained in the ways of honor. And defeated the dragon Sho-Loa (the undying). And earned the iron fist. But to be king, I had to leave the outside world, forever. I was given one year to say my good-byes. And get my affaires sent. Instead I chose to learn with S.H.I.E.L.D., and you. The monks don't trust the out side world. That believe it is to be corrupt and without honor." Spider-Man cut him off. "That's ridiculous. We have the greatest heroes, sure they are out numbered five to one by villains, but we have some tv and corn dogs." "There is much to learn front he outside world. The monks are said in there ways. I am to be honor bound too" Danny stops talking. And dropped the tool in his hand."Danny you don't look so hot" Spider-Man cuts in again. "Take the thrown worse, if I don't Scorpio is next in line. K'un-Lun, would fall under his rule. He has turned greedy and self centered. And..." Danny dropped to the ground. He let out a moan of pain. And grabbed his neck where the scratch had been. "Danny, What's wrong?" Spider-Man said. "I don't know. I can't see. Its all dark. Spider-Man I am blind." He answered.
The master later tell them the blindness is temporary. But Danny is up able to compete in the return of Sho-Loa. A contest the will judge weather he is fit to be king or not. Danny is aloud to chose a champion to fight in his place and he choses Spiderman. Before the contest Danny tries to in courage Spiderman by saying "do not take it personally you are a.." "Infidel I know." Spiderman finishes. The they take off. Spiderman gets caught in two of the three challenges. He falls in quick sand. And is squeezed by a snake. When Scorpio crosses the finish line first he is caught in the third and final trap. Because Spiderman turned around and saved him he won the contest even thought Scorpio crosses the real finish line first. The masters declare Danny the next king of K'un-Lun. Danny fights Scorpio and wins. He tells spiderman he receives his eyesight back before the race but he did not need eyes to see he was an honorable champion.
In end Danny is given one more year in the outside world. He thanks the masters. He says then he will come back and take the mantle he has graciously been given.
