Iron Fist is out this week — March 17 to be precise — and we've partnered up with Netflix to bring your our very own interactive story... The Iron Controller. A story about video games, intrigue and a coup d'etat of Kotaku Australia itself!
We're also giving away $5000 over the next month. There's that as well.
Kotaku's Iron Controller series is brought to you by Netflix and Marvel's Iron Fist. Danny Rand is an orphan, Monk, billionaire and living weapon. After a 15 year absence he returns to NYC to reclaim his family legacy. Marvel's Iron Fist premieres March 17th only on Netflix.
How does it all work? Well first you have to read The Iron Controller, a five chapter long Twine Game we've been working on with John Kane, the Australian developer behind Killing Time at Lightspeed and Mallow Drops. With artwork by Jón Kristinsson.
Based on that story we're going to ask you a question. And in the comments you must answer that question in less than 500 words.
But first, please enjoy...
THE IRON CONTROLLER!
In association with Netflix and Iron Fist, we're giving away a total of $5000 across five separate posts — $1000 for every chapter of The Iron Controller.
After each chapter we'll ask a question. The person with the best answer wins $1000 to help upgrade their home entertainment units!
The first question:
In 500 words or less, if you could have any super power, what would it be and why?
Once all five chapters are complete, we'll announce all the winners of each individual competition!
Terms and conditions can be found here.

Last week The Iron Controller finished with high drama — a prophetic dream... a plane crash?
Now stranded in the mountains of Tibet, ravaged by a fierce Blizzard, how will our hero (me) survive?

Now the training begins...
Welcome to Chapter 3 of... The Iron Controller.
When we last left The Iron Controller things were getting complicated. Mark was deep in training, while Alex was scheming, bending Kotaku Australia to his own, insane will.
Today, in chapter 4, Mark will finally unlock the true secrets of The Iron Controller. And prepare for the ULTIMATE BATTLE.
It has finally come to this. The ultimate showdown. Mark versus Alex.
Who will prevail?
(It's also your last chance to win cash-money to upgrade your home entertainment. There's also that.)
