Powers/Abilities: Mako was teen-aged, tall and very strong. He was aggressive, violent, carnivorous, ate fresh human meat, and reveled in murder. Given his DNA heritage, he would likely have excellent aquatic abilities.
(Marvel.com) - Mako was grown a test-tube baby from the combined DNA of Attuma, Orka, Meranno and Tyrak.
(Vengeance#1) - Alongside the young female Black Knight and Radioactive Kid, Mako was welcomed to the Young Masters as a new recruit by Executioner and Egg-Head.
(Vengeance#2) - Devlin Deangleo introduced an old Hydra base in Pennsylvania to the Young Masters to serve as their new headquarters. Later, hoping to make a name for themselves, the Young Masters followed the Executioner's plan to kill Bullseye, who they determined to be in a secure holding area. The five killed the guards there; Mako chewed on one dead guard. As they stood around Bullseye's charred corpse, Lady Bullseye attacked, shooting Mako in the neck, knocking out the other Young Masters, then slicing Mako's head off when he tried to attack her from behind.

What do you get when you mix the DNA of Attuma, Orka, Meranno and Tyrak? You're about to find out."
