Kono Sanada was a former Sumo wrestler who became a mercenary and hitman for hire to profit from his abilities. He was first seen along with his sister Sheoke, also known as the assassin Snapdragon, when he was one of a group of assassins hired to take down the Black Widow. The assassins were unsuccessful in their goal.
Sheoke was later killed by the mercenary turned adventurer Diamondback in revenge for an attempt on her life. Diamondback and her allies Captain America, Zachary Moonhunter, and the Americop were later investigating Kono's employer Damon Dran, and Kono took advantage of the opportunity to try and avenge his sister's death by attempting to kill Diamondback. He was prevented from doing so by Moonhunter, and although the heroes were captured, they eventually overpowered their captors and escaped. Kono's current whereabouts are unknown.
Kono is a skilled hand-to-hand combatant, with particular skill in Sumo wrestling. Although not superhuman, his bulk gives him a greater degree of resilience than most normal humans.
Kono has the normal human strength of a man of his age, height, and build who engages in intensive regular exercise.
Kono usually wears golden metallic cuffs that aid him in throttling someone when he gets them in a chokehold.
