Not much is known about the past of the costumed hero named Banzai. He is American, but how he came to become a member of the super-group called Xen remains unrevealed. He would aid Xen in defending the Asian continent from any threats, however Banzai was very critical of their leader Lord Sonfire.
He and his fellow Xen members would try and stop the Tong of Creel from stealing the hands of the Absorbing Man, which were entrusted to his fellow Xen teammate Tao. Xen failed in stopping the Tong from stealing the hands. Later Banzai would join his fellow teammates in aiding Dr. Strange in saving Clea from Asgard. It was during this time that Banzai began voicing his criticisms about Sonfire's leadership.
The heroes would succeed in saving Clea, however they would find that during their absence, Japan was attacked by the reanimated corpse of Fin Fang Foom. With the help of Strange and Clea, Xen destroyed Fin Fang Foom. Banzai's current activities are presently unknown.


The extent of Banzai's abilities are unknown or what effect the Terrigen Mists had on his physiology. He was a skilled martial artist and used a trident as his primary weapon.
