    No recent wiki edits to this page.

    Hiro Sokuto was taken against his will as a young teen by a scientist named Oonagh Mullarkey who worked for Gena-Sys Corporation. Mullarkey discovered that Hiro had latent mutant abilities so she had him and four other teens with powers taken to her lab where she would wipe out their real memories. Mullarkey implanted false memories and personality matrixes into each teen and boosted their own powers and abilities by altering their genetic coding. Hiro was given the codename Base and he attain the ability to create various constructs out of the elements. Base and the other four teens would become the group Genetix where Mullarkey had plans to have them become operatives for the MyS-TECH organization.
