Toshiro Kanada was the planet manager of Stark Industries' Southeast Asia facility, whose supplies were being stolen by guerillas working for Wong Chu. While taking an inspection of the surrounding area, Kanada and Tony Stark were attacked by Wong Chu’s men. Fleeing into the jungle, Kanda accidentally tripped a mine, which killed him and maimed Stark, which led to the development of the first Iron Man power-suit.[1]
