Origin

The mutant son of the Japanese crimelord Shingen Harada, Kenuichio Harada was never formally acknowledged as a member of the Yashida Clan. At an early age, Harada began the study of the fighting methods and code of honor of the medieval Japanese warrior-class called the samurai. Mastering the attendant disciplines of bushido, Harada capitalized on his unique mutant talent and sought employment in the criminal underworld as the Silver Samurai.
