Toylab Kung Fu Store:
Meachum expected that Iron Fist would come to kill him and so he hired mercenaries and guards to kill him. He also put a large open contract on Iron Fist's head. The contract attracted a wide array of thugs whom Iron Fist easily defeated.
Scythe was a talented warrior who had heard about the contract and decided to hunt down the Iron Fist. He ran into a group of thugs who had been beaten down by Iron Fist and used information they provided to track down the fledgling hero. Scythe was undettered by the thugs failures at defeating Iron Fist and was confident in his own martial skills to take him down.
The Scythe gained the upperhand in the early parts of the battle. His use of the Kusarigama was highly skillful and Iron Fist was battling back memories as he had just returned to New York. While he fought better than the thugs Iron Fist still won in the end. Funneling his Chi into his fist, he destroyed one end of the Ksuarigama and greatly startling Scythe. Scythe fell to the ground and begged for his life. He then told Iron Fist who had hired him.
