As a child, Duc No Tranh lost his parents, along with his whole home village, during the Vietnam War in an act of war crime perpetrated by an unit of US troops.

Fueled by hatred, Tranh trained himself to be one of the greatest marital artists in the world and went after the men responsible. His initial acts of revenge were stopped by Daredevil. Later he attacked Red Wolf, who was among the men who massacred his village.

Tranh's quest for revenge came to an end when went after James Hanes, the leader of the unit, who was now a priest in New York City and came to conflict with New Warriors.
