(Secret Warriors II#5 (fb) - BTS) - Leer grew up with his father, Karnak, at the Tower of Shadows.
(Secret Warriors II#10 (fb) - BTS) - Karnak taught Leer all about being needful and doing his duty. He taught him that the Inhumans should worship the Terrigen Mists themselves and not the throne.
(Secret Warriors II#5 (fb) ) - With Terrigenesis no longer available to Inhumans, Karnak traded his son, Leer, to Mr. Sinister, authorizing him to be experimented on.
(Secret Warriors II#5 (fb) - BTS) - Leer was experimented on by the Dark Beast, who removed samples of Leer's DNA, releasing an essence of what would be Leer's powers if he ever underwent Terrigenesis. He learned that his powers would likely be to enhance the powers of others, but the Dark Beast worried that he would only be able to do it one time.
(Secret Warriors II#3 - BTS) - Karnak instructed a team of Inhumans, including Inferno, Moon Girl (with Devil Dinosaur), Ms. Marvel, and Quake, to find Leer in New Tian. Moon Girl used a tracker to discover that Leer was in a lab in the city. They discovered Leer had been taken by Hydra.
(Secret Warriors II#4) - Aboard a Hydra Helicarrier, Moon Girl rushed to find the captive Devil Dinosaur before the ship crashed. She ran into Leer, who refused to help her, and then she was knocked unconscious.
(Secret Warriors II#5 (fb) - BTS) - Moon Girl and Leer were teleported into confinement in New Attilan, with Moon Girl being kept in a cage while Leer could roam free. He told her about his past. Moon Girl developed a theory that Leer's power was to enhance the powers of others.
(Secret Warriors II#5) - Inferno, Ms. Marvel, Quake, and Karnak found Moon Girl and Leer and freed them. Leer revealed that he could only likely use his powers once, and they were disturbed to learn that Karnak was his father. As they debated the right approach to save New Attilan, Leer activated his powers, enhancing the powers of the others. After Hydra was defeated, and Quake was rescued from Mister Hyde, the team disbanded, and took Leer to find someone to stay with.
(Secret Warriors II#10 (fb) ) - Moon Girl took Leer to spend time with Devil Dinosaur, and he spent the following days eating junk food and playing video games.
(Secret Warriors II#10) - Magik took Leer and Devil Dinosaur to New Attllan, where Leer played games with Moon Girl to pass the time. Inferno approached, and Leer apologized for Inferno's niece being kidnapped by the Dark Beast and Mr. Sinister, feeling responsible as his own genetics hadn't been enough to solve Terrigenesis. Leer told Inferno about his father's words about the throne, and Inferno later broke the throne, finding Terrigen Crystals there. Leer and the Warriors were surrounded by Iso and her guards, including Frank McGee, Grid, and Naja.
(Secret Warriors II#11) - Magik teleported the Warriors and Leer away to Moon Girl's lab, where Leer remained safe.
(Secret Warriors II#12) - Karnak took Leer to visit Moon Girl and they ate cake together, then they rode away on Devil Dinosaur.
