Akihiro was the son of Wolverine and his Japanese wife, Itsu . In 1946, Itsu, while in the last stages of her pregnancy, was murdered by the Winter Soldier in an attempt to draw Wolverine out and return him to the custody of Madripoor . After Itsu's death, Romulus took the baby, cutting him from his mother's womb and leaving her body behind. The baby survived the incident, possibly due to his mutant healing factor, which he inherited from his father.
