There were a bunch of characters created to reflect the big Kung-Fu craze of the 70's and these were two of my favorites. Iron Fist had a great look and crossed the superhero and martial arts genres well. Karate Kid stood out amongst his more alien and powerful LSH allies and even was spun off into his own solo series. Sure, it didn't last long, but graduating from team member to solo star was a rare move in those days and he beat a lot of higher profile characters to the punch with that achievement.
