M'Nai was a child who lived in a village in Africa where Fu Manchu operated from. When Fu Manchu's base was assaulted by the forces of Sir Denis Nayland Smith, M'Nai was orphaned, and received a scar on the right side of his face. Fu Manchu's aide T'Maka wanted to put M'Nai out of his misery, but Fu Manchu noticed that despite his pain, M'Nai was not crying. Realizing that M'Nai could be a powerful agent, Fu Manchu brought him back to his fortress in Honan, and raised him like a son.
M'Nai grew up alongside Fu Manchu's son Shang-Chi, and wore a mask over his face at all times to hide his scar. At the age of seven, Shang-Chi asked him to remove his mask. M'Nai duelled him, and in the course of doing so, they became friends, bound by their regard for knowledge and for Fu Manchu.
Mínai adopted the identity of Midnight and was sent years later by Fu Manchu to track down Shang-Chi. During a battle with Shang-Chi, Midnight died. Midnight's body was then obtained by the Kree, who placed it into storage on Bodoni-20. Years later, when the Silver Surfer opposed the Kree during their war with the Skrulls, Dr. Kar-Sagg retrieved Midnight's body and reanimated his brain. He cloned a new body for the brain, and enhanced it so that he would be a match for the Silver Surfer.
