HISTORY: When the Japanese government
wanted a team of state-sanctioned super heroes at their
disposal, a top-secret consortium of politicians and business
entities known as the Giri was formed to recruit and train
potential superhuman operatives for "Big Hero 6."
Despite reservations by some members of the Giri, Silver
Samurai, a freelance ronin and former bodyguard of the
terrorist Viper, was appointed as field commander. Secret
agent Honey Lemon, inventor of the nanotechnology-based
Power Purse from which she could access any object, also
agreed to join the team. The tough-talking GoGo Tomago,
able to transubstantiate her body into a fiery force blast
by uttering her code-name, was released from prison on the
condition that she serve on the team. The Machiavellian
bureaucrat known only as Mr. Oshima was appointed as the
Girl's spokesperson and coordinated Big Hero 6's activities.
Government scientists next identified 13-year-old boy genius
Hiro Takachiho as a potential operative. Unimpressed with the
Silver Samurai, Hiro declined joining the team until his mother
was kidnapped by the Everwraith, the astral embodiment of all
those killed in the 1945 nuclear attacks on Hiroshima and Nagasaki.
Joined by Baymax, a synthetic bodyguard capable of synthforming
into a dragon which was created by Hiro using the brain engrams
of his dead father. Hiro reluctantly joined forces with Big Hero
6 to prevent Everwraith from slaughtering millions in downtown
Tokyo. During the battle, Big Hero 6 was joined by Sunfire,
Japan's premiere super hero and a mutant with the ability to superheat
matter into plasma, who was instrumental in the Everwraith's defeat.
Soon after, Big Hero 6 moved their headquarters from the Giri
Office Building to Japan's Cool World Amusement Park, where they
were attacked by X the Unknowable, a monster born from a child's
drawings that could transform its atomic structure into any form
and shape. With the help of Alpha Flight; Big Hero 6 destroyed
X the Unknowable in the fires of Mount Fuji. Afterwards, Big Hero
6 continued to protect Japan from all threats, such as when the
team rescued Tokyo residents from a freak blizzard caused by the
Crimson Cowl and the Masters of Evil.
Eventually, Sunfire left Big Hero 6 so that he could work at
X-Corporation office in Mumbai, India. His spot on the team was
filled by Sunpyre, a young woman with similar solar-based powers
who was pulled into this reality through the Power Purse and came
to worship Honey Lemon as her own personal god. Similarly, after
Silver Samurai was seemingly slain in an altercation with the
assassin Elektra in
Iraq, his spot on the team was filled by the enigmatic Ebon Samurai.
With the two most experienced members of Big Hero 6 gone, Hiro
became the team's new leader.
Most recently, the members of Big Hero 6 fell victim to a mind-control
device implanted within Baymax. Traveling to Canada, the mind-controlled
super heroes attacked a new incarnation of Alpha
Flight at a national park. After a brief battle, the mind-control
device was short-circuited and the two teams parted as friends.
Big Hero 6 returned to Japan to seek out the parties responsible
for their mind-control. Although both Sunfire and Silver Samurai
have since returned to Japan, their future with Big Hero 6 remains
taken from "The Official Handbook of the Marvel Universe:
