Story: Toshiro Misawa grew up in Japan, the son of a rich industrialist who made his money on the post-was boom in electronics. The name Fuji was given to him by his friends when he hit puberty and grew to an enormous size. Trying to put his size to good use, he started training as a sumo wrestler. The growth was a combination of Toshiro's unique genetic makeup and the radioactivity from the comet that passed closely by Monitor One Space Station. Fuji's body kept changing and when he was activated his unstable body destabilized completely [StormWatch Sourcebook #1].

Toshiro Misawa worked several years as the StormWatch operative Fuji.

When StormWatch investigated what they thought was an asteroid, SkyWatch got infested with Aliens that killed most of the crew. Among the victims were Fuji, whose containment suit was ruptured and his plasma energy mixed with Hellstrike's. The WildC.A.T.S. saved the remaining crew and the plan was to return with reinforcements, but Winter apparently realized that there was only one way to get rid of the Aliens. Instead of escaping with the others and try to fight the Aliens later, he stayed behind and flew the space station into the sun [WildC.A.T.S./Aliens #1]. The destruction of SkyWatch and death of Winter and other StormWatch operatives was what led to StormWatch being discontinued and the formation of the Authority [StormWatch (vol. 2) #11].

With the changes in the nature of the universe from Captain Atom's visit [Captain Atom: Armageddon #8], the new Doctor was able to extract Winter who had been trapped in the Sun [Authority: Scorched Earth], and to everyone's surprise Fuji, Hellstrike and Fahrenheit also appeared. The energies of Fuji and Hellstrike were still mixed upon arrival, but the Doctor succeeded in separating them and get Fuji into a new containment armor [StormWatch PHD #5]. Shortly after getting back, Fuji joined the new StormWatch PHD [WorldStorm #2].

Skills & abilities: Fuji's body is composed of energy in plasma state, making him extremely strong. He can with the help of his containment suit control the density of his form but would otherwise revert to a gaseous radioactive plasma state.
Equipment: Fuji wears a containment suit to keep his form from harming others.
