Origins:
 
Decades ago, Itsu the pregnant, Japanese wife of James Howlett was killed by the brainwashed KGB assassin the Winter Soldier (James Buchanan "Bucky" Barnes). Unbeknownst to Howlett, his unborn baby survived. The baby's survival was thought to be possible by his inherited mutant healing factor. The child was later abducted by the Winter Soldier. Eventually known as Daken, Howlett's son underwent training as an assassin. Recently, mutant telepath Emma Frost revealed to Wolverine that his son was alive and full of hate for him. During a confrontation with his father Wolverine, he was overpowered and drowned by him.
Daken was brought back to life by the Apocalypse Twins, using both the Life Seed and Death Seed, in order to serve, alongside Banshee, Grim Reaper and Sentry, as one of their Horsemen of Death.
