An orphan who was the sole survivor of the destruction of a hijacked plane, Aki was a girl with incredible telekinetic power who was abducted by Zodiac to use her powers as a weapon. She managed to escape and found Tony Stark, hoping that he could protect and adopt her. After nearly being run over in the street, she tried to convince Tony that she was special, levitating cutlery at the restaurant he had taken her to. In response, Tony started demanding answers, causing Aki to burst into tears. Tony immediately backpedaled, asking the waiter to bring over ice cream.
After spending the night in Tony's bed (Iron Man himself spending it on the couch), he awoke to find the girl cleaning. He soon finds that in doing so, she had shredded multiple important documents that had littered his workspace and after making a request to try his Repulsors, she ended up firing one of the gauntlets of the Iron Man armor straight into a large flat-screen television, destroying it. As he started to scold her for her actions, Aki backed into a control panel, causing two robotic hands to pick up Tony and carry him off, crashing into a desk chair moments after. As Tony recovered from this ordeal, the doorbell rung, prompting Aki to answer it. Meeting Dr. Tanaka at the door, she introduced herself as Tony's daughter, surprising the older woman.
Tony soon took over the situation, sitting Chika down with a cup of tea, but as he failed to pay attention to her, Aki became jealous, interrupting with some awkward statements. After Chika left, Tony once again scolded Aki for her actions when a burst of energy erupted from the girl which knocks him flying while Aki ran away.
He soon tracked her to a nearby playing field where Aki revealed to him her lack of control over her abilities and that it was the cause of the plane crash that killed her parents. In an attempt to cheer her up, the two went and played. As the day wore on, Tony was confronted by Captain Sakurai, requesting that the JSDF take custody of Aki. When Tony refuses, Sakurai took them by force.
Aki was secured and sedated inside a JSDF transport, but it didn't last as Virgo, the weapon powered by her abilities attacked, running them off the road. Tony freed the unconscious Aki from her restraints and started running from the battle, taking her to Dr. Tanaka. While Tony battled Virgo, Aki eventually regained consciousness, determined to help him. Heading outside, she used her powers to cripple Virgo and in turn herself. However, the Zodiac mech was not destroyed and took advantage of the ensuing confusion to take Aki into itself to greatly increase its destructive ability.
Despite the magnetic field threatening to tear him apart, Tony dove into the fray once more, rescuing Aki from within Virgo, finally disabling it. Unfortunately, whether from trauma or the shared damage from Virgo, Aki lost both her powers and her memory of of her life after the orphanage, thus not remember Zodiac or more importantly, Tony at all.
