The Hand is one of the prominent antagonists of the Marvel TV Universe, appearing in the first two seasons of Daredevil and Iron Fist. From the trailers, it also seems that defeating the Hand will be the reason of the creation of the Defenders team.
In these shows, the Hand has been opposed to two factions for centuries:
- The Chaste, mostly represented by Stick, is an organisation whose ultimate goal is to destroy the Hand.
- The Iron Fist, incarnated in present days by Danny Rand, is a warrior trained in the Himalayan monastery Kun'Lun to be the enemy of the Hand.
What is the relation between the two nemeses of the Hand?
I am mostly asking about the Marvel TV shows, but short of an answer from the shows, answers from the comics are welcome.
