Shiro Yoshida grew up with a huge resentment against the United States. His mother was exposed to the radiation of the atomic bomb at Hiroshima and she died during his birth. His dad, a member of the Japanese Clan Yashida, became a diplomat to the United Nations and Shiro was pretty much raised by his uncle. Shiro’s uncle Tomo took him to a site in Hiroshima, and got him to touch the ground. There, the radioactive soil somehow triggered his mutation. Shiro trained for months before he was able to control his flame fully. His uncle Tomo was purely anti-America. He instilled his hatred upon Shiro and is responsible for giving him his costume and codename of Sunfire.
Marvel Legends X-Men Wave Sunfire
Good Head sculpt
I wish Hasbro would start using unique weapons and accessories for each figure and put away the reused parts
Sunfire is one of the lesser known characters of this X-Men wave but is a big upgrade from the Toybiz version. Better head sculpt and availability for fans who missed out on this figure the first time around. Not a huge fan of the character myself, but there are so many hardcore X-Men fans out there I don’t see any figure from this wave sitting around.
