An unnamed American soldier was captured in the South Pacific and put into a Japanese labour camp. He managed to escape, but died in the process. His body was found by the Keepers of the Sacred Koan, who used their koan to bring him back from the dead. The soldier returned to America as a virtually immortal samurai.
Over the years the American Samurai grew jaded and disgusted with the violent nature of America. He donned his armour and attacked a police transport vehicle carrying a dangerous gang known as the Clowns. The Samurai knocked the guards unconscious and slaughtered the gang.
Over the next ten days the American Samurai murdered thirty-six criminals and attracted the attention of Daredevil and Elektra.
