Firefist's story is a common one on Khundia. Through strength and leadership abilities, the young Khund rose through the military ranks, and was awarded the chance for cybernetic enhancement. He had his entire body mechanically enhanced for greater strength, speed and endurance, and had an energy-blaster built into the armour. He claimed his wife the most beautiful female on Khundia,Veilmist.
Firefist was among Khund warriors which included his wife Veilmist, a teleporter, Blood Claw, who possesses indestructible claws and Flederweb, a winged bounty hunter. These four were chosen to accompany the Legion of Super-Heroes in their fight against Mordru, due to the threat to the United Planets and the Khundish Empire. The deal between the Khunds and the Legion stipulated that he was to co-lead the team, but his aggressive nature caused so many conflicts. his temper was his downfall, as during the battle he lashed out at Legionnaire Devlin O'Ryan, whose reflective powers apparently killed Firefist with his own blast.
Whilst buried hid cybernetic systems actually kept him alive, and the Khunds rebuilt him. He is back in the Khundish military, and has recently completed an assignment to kill Starfinger. He crossed paths with the Legion, and hoped to get revenge on them for what in his eyes was an abandonment, but was forced by the arrival of the cadets from the United Planets Militia Academy to make a retreat. He is currently loyal to the Khundish military, and had been involved in a plot to destroy Weber's World.
