Early Life

Born and raised in Japan, Shingen "Shin" Harada was the illegitimate son of Keniuchio Harada and as such 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]


He designed the new hellfire academy.[5]

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 confront Dario Agger regarding Roxxon's operations in the Ten Realms, which Agger had kept secret from them. As Agger was unwilling to share the market he had just opened, and threatened anyone who dared to step up and take it from him, Shingen then accepted Agger's offer of taking the new market by force and told Agger this was now a hostile takeover. He then used his resources to sabotage Roxxon's global pipeline, had 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 threatened to slice Agger's head off. Just when Agger was about to transform into a minotaur and fight Shingen, Exterminatrix, of the Midas Foundation, arrived and knocked him out cold with 20,000 volts of electricity, and declared herself as the newest member of the group thereafter.[1]
