Iron Knight has a past, and a name, that only a few people know. He was the son of Nick Fury and Viper, purely an accident. He was brought up in S.H.I.E.L.D. headquarters around the world. Then he ran away, into the arms of Tony Stark. Sensing a hero, he was immediately outfitted with the first incarnation of the Iron Knight armor, and gladly accepted the Captain's offer of Avengers membership.
At a Stark Expo in 2020, a new suit that allowed levitation was developed. Nick Fury and Viper both attended in disguise, planning to secure the device for their organizations. Not knowing each was the other, they fell in love, and Viper ended up pregnant. Nine months later, the boy who would become Joseph Fury was born.
He somehow drifted back into Nick Fury's hands. From the ages of 5-14, he was held by various S.H.I.E.L.D. agents at the locations where Nick was. However, he realized how Nick was never meant to be a father, and managed to escape S.H.I.E.L.D. custody. He decided, if he didn't need Fury, head of Seemingly Everything, that he could make it on his own. So he set out on a trek across America.He made it to N.Y.C., where he found the Avengers fighting the Masters. He was injured by an energy beam, and fell. Iron Man flew to him, but he insisted he was fine, and even that he could help. When the Masters were put away, Tony invited him to take a small vacation with the Avengers. He went to Avengers Mansion to recover, and he asked if there was any way he could further the Avengers' pursuits. Tony brought him to his armory and unveiled the Iron Knight armor, Mk. 1. After showing him the features, Tony told him to go out into the world and fight crime where he could. However, after a few uneventful days, he was soon confronted by the Captain, who asked him to be the first new member of his Avengers. He gratefully accepted.
