Hiro Sokuto was born in Hiroshima, Japan. He has one brother, Tattoo of Tektos, and they were sold as a pair to the Yakuza by their father. While running drugs for the Yakuza, they were arrested by the Mutagenic Search Squad. The Squad is run by a "Dr. Mallarkey", who seems to ooze control.

Base's memories would eventually be erased and replaced with those of an orphan who was found by the Hikari-No-Michi, a top secret gathering of priest-warriors. The Path of Light, as they were sometimes called, trained him up until he demolished one of their holy shrines, causing him to be banished. On the road he would be found by Dr. Mallarkey.

M-Day and Civil War

It is unknown if Base kept his powers after M-Day.

Base was one of the foreign costumed hero who were required a monitoring by Tony Stark.[1]
