Toshiro Misawa was given the nickname Fuji in high school, because of his extraordinary size and Japanese origin. He spent some time as a sumo wrestler in his teens but developed a strange condition which caused his body's structure to deteriorate. His father, Yoshi Misawa, was a wealthy businessman and invested a lot of that money into curing his son but was told it was incurable. Stormwatch then stepped in to help. However, when his powers were fully activated, Fuji's body reverted to plasma and only quick thinking by Stormwatch scientists saved his life. Now, he is unable to live outside his specially built containment suit, a fact which affects him emotionally though he often hides it behind a cheerful exterior.
Life With Stormwatch
Fuji's containment suit has changed many times over the course of his Stormwatch duties. Despite inherent problems, such as his fingers being too big to operate communication devices, Fuji still enjoys bragging about how beautiful he considers himself to be.
Fuji once assisted the Wildcats, where rogue team-member Tao caused him severe mental damage by trapping him in a mental loop. It took some time to recover from this.
Fuji's deep patriotism is highlighted in Stormwatch as he breaks protocol to personally confront a Japanese madman who is causing widespread death in Tokyo and beyond with the intention of having other countries taking over Japan. After an ideological confront, the madman died in the hands of his own genetically engineered soldiers. Fuji never spoke about that day again.
During downtime in Clark's Bar, a hangout for super-powered people, Fuji tells of a secret unique to his physical makeup. The random vibrations of every day life build up inside the gas of his body. Every five minutes, they 'erupt', giving him an orgasm. His teammates are duly shocked and or envious.
When the Authority's Doctor resurrected Winter, his teammates were resurrected as well, including Fuji. According to Fahrenheit's memories, one of the Monitors played a role in this, specifying that they would be needed. Though it could also be suggested that Fuji and the others were saved by a possible future version of Jackson King. Fuji rejoined the reorganized Stormwatch Prime.
Fuji serves under Jackson King's new StormWatch, as a member of StormWatch Team Alpha. While Stormwatch was helping the stranded Authority in UnLondon, both teams battled The Eidolon and his forces. Eidolon confronted Fuji and ruptured his suit, putting him on the verge of death. After Eidolon and his forces were defeated, Fuji was seen to by Angela Spica (The Engineer) and allowed to have some of her nanite blood to flow into Fuji's suit, repairing it. Fuji remained in a comatose condition on Skywatch while being looked after by Link. Fuji's gaseous condition changed due to The Engineer's nanites that are still in Fuji's suit, which encased him in an oval-shaped structure. When Skywatch was severely damaged by Kheran terrorists, Fuji finally emerged out of the structure as a man completely covered in silver, which is not unlike that of The Engineer. With his newfound powers, Fuji saved Skywatch from burning up in Earth's atmosphere and placed it back into orbit. Following this, Link confronted Jackson King and told him that he learned very well that King had expected Fuji's transformation since repairing the Authority's Carrier, and suggested that he plans on violently replacing the Authority, which explains Fuji's form that is similar to Angela Spica's.
Fuji and Stormwatch later came into conflict with the Knights of Khera, who were responsible for attempting to destroy Skywatch. He and his team attempted to stop the Knights from terraforming Earth and killing all life, but initially failed miserably against them. When all of Earth's heroes were summoned to UnLondon by the Authority and notified of leaving Earth on the restored Carrier, Fuji decided to stay on Earth. He assisted in teleporting more heroes from Skywatch in reinforcing Earth's war against the Knights of Khera. He then joined alongside with Black Halo in battling against the Knights' leader, Sebastian.
