Early Life

Born and raised in Japan, Shingen "Shin" Harada was the illegitimate son of Keniuchio Harada and the heir of the Clan Yashida. He was also the boyfriend of Amiko Kobayashi, the foster daughter of Wolverine.[2]

Hellfire Academy

At some point, he joined Kade Kilgore's Hellfire Academy,[3] and partnered with Mystique in order to recruit the newly activated mutant Iara Dos Santos (who soon after adopted the code-name Shark-Girl), unsuccessfully, after having battled both their target and Angel.[4]

Confronting Dario Agger

As CEO of Yashida Corporation, Shingen represented the company at the Universal Bank, where the richest people met to discuss anything relevant to the world. In this meeting, the heads of various companies came from across the globe to discuss Dario Agger and Roxxon's operations in the Ten Realms, which Agger had kept in secret from them. As Agger was unwilling to share the market he had just opened and threatened anyone who dares to step up and take it from him, Shingen then accepts Agger's offer of taking the new market by force and tells Agger this is now a hostile takeover. He then used his resources to sabotage Roxxon's global pipeline, have a spy break into Agger's corporate H.Q. to download a virus, and hacked into his personal cloud where Shingen revealed Agger's tan lines. Shingen then morphed into his Silver Samurai armor and threaten to slice Agger's head off. Just when Agger was about to transform into the minotaur and fight Shingen, Oubliette Midas, a.k.a. the Exterminatrix, of the Midas Foundation, arrived and knocked him out cold with 20,000 volts of electricity, and declaring herself as the new member of the group afterwards.[1]
