Born in an African village around many years ago, he was ostracized immediately for being an Albino. When he discovered that some American scientist had been monitoring the village he was forced to live with them since they did not want him to reveal their plans to the village people. As his powers manifested he became the scientists’ personal guinea pig and grew to resent them and the villagers for treating him as sub human when he was more than them. Killing the scientists he cut through his village with his unearthly powers. When he heard of a goddess in Kenya he ventured there to wrest control of her weather powers from her [X-men: Hidden years #7]. He defeated Storm and grew her simple torrential downpour into a storm the likes of which the world had never seen. It easily enveloped the other rims of Africa and parts of the savage land. He clashed with the teenaged x-men and recognized Cyclops as a more powerful energy source [X-men: Hidden years #6]. Cyclops power proved his undoing as he absorbed more raw energy from Scott than his body could handle and dissipated from the overload [X-men: Hidden years #7].
