Physical appearance




Season 2

Scorpion traveled to New York City to prevent Iron Fist from returning to K'un-Lun to compete in the Return of Shou-Lao, which would determine who would become king of K'un L'un. Disguised as a ninja, he blinded Iron Fist to prevent competition. However, Iron Fist returned to K'un L'un with Spider-Man in tow. Iron Fist chose Spider-Man to fight as proxy. During the Return of Shou-Lao, Scorpion utilized a number of dishonorable tricks to defeat Spider-Man, and placed the crown of K'un-Lun atop his head. However, the crown was a trap, and Scorpion was buried under a pile of gold coins, giving Spider-Man a clear path to the competition's real finish line, but Spider-Man chose to save him instead. Scorpion thanked his savior by racing ahead to the finish line anyway, but the Head Monk and Iron Fist appeared to reveal the Return of Shou-Lao was a test of character, and Spider-Man won by saving his opponent. Scorpion, furious that an outsider would be named king of K'un L'un, attacked Iron Fist, but was defeated. As punishment for his actions, the Elder Monk of K'un-Lun exiled Scorpion from his homeland.
