Powers/Abilities: Hiromitsu was a wizard, capable of manipulating the forces of magic. He was able to control the Dragon Kings from K'un Lun, making them unable to resume their humaniod forms, and he could also teleport himself away. All his powers were taken by Junzo Muto.

History: BTS- In order to get Junzo Muto to join The Hand, Hiromitsu made sure that Junzo Muto's parents were killed in a "terrible accident."

(New Warriors II#5)- At an unknown location, Hiromitsu helped Junzo steal the chi power from Steel Serpent.

(New Warriors II#8/Iron Fist/Wolverine#1 (fb))- At a secret location in Seattle, Hiromitsu helped Junzo gain the powers of Iron Fist.

(New Warriors II#8)- Hiromitsu watched as Junzo began to fight the New Warriors, and witnessed the New Warriors escape with the now-powerless Iron Fist.

(New Warriors II#10)- Hiromitsu talked with Junzo, who told Hiromitsu that instead of calling him Master Junzo he should call him the Iron Fist.

(Iron Fist/Wolverine#2 (fb))- The Hall of Ancestors was the first part of K'un Lun to arrive in Tokyo. Junzo and Hiromitsu came and introduced themselves to Yü-Ti and the Dragon Kings. When Yü-Ti tried to make the Dragon Kings help him in the battle against Junzo Muto, Hiromitsu used his magical powers to take control of the Dragon Kings, preventing them from changing back to their humaniod forms.

(Iron Fist/Wolverine#1)- Hiromitsu talked with Junzo, calling him Master Junzo once more. Junzo told him that he shouldn't call him master, they had known each other for far too long for him to call him master, and that he had been like a father to him. Later he learnt from Junzo that Iron Fist was now in Tokyo and that their plan for K'un Lun and their taking over the world could now begin.

(Iron Fist/Wolverine#2)- Alomgside Junzo, Hiromitsu came to the cell of Iron Fist and Yü-Ti. Yü-Ti informed Junzo that he learnt from the Dragon Kings the odd fact that Junzo would team-up with Hiromitsu, the man behind the death of Junzo's parents. Junzo screamed to Hiromitsu, "You lied to me!, my entire life has been a lie" whereto Hiromitsu answered "no wait! it was your destiny to join us! I had to --". When Iron Fist tried to stop Junzo, he told him to back off, threatening to kill him, but instead of giving Iron Fist the killing blow, he struck Hiromitsu dead, and stole his wizard powers.
