The Guardian Herupa Hando Hu and the Zamaron Nadia Safir came to Earth to find ten people to propel Earth into the new millennium. The only problem is the were very bitter about how they were treated after the Guardians abandoned them when the formed the Green Lantern Corps. The Manhunters lied in wait for centuries waiting for this moment they had sleeper agents all over the universe including Earth and they did everything they could to stop Herupa and Nadia from fulfilling their duty.
Takeo Yakata was the second to be visited by Herupa and Nadia. Just like all of the chosen Herupa and Nadia told him in his own language that “We have chosen ten people on Earth to advance the human race, and one of the ten is you! The heroes and heroines of Earth join us in asking you to leave this life and enter the future”
Takeo is the chairman of Yakata Inc. He started this company as a radio repair shop and in a small bombed-out garage and turned it into a vast financial empire. Takeo was not thrilled with the idea of leaving all this to become a superhero named R.A.M. But that is just what he did and he became a member of the New Guardians.
R.A.M. was one of the few who died at the House. His picture was hanging on the wall.
His father Shigeru Yakata was saved by Alan Scott from being murdered by an American guard in Young All-Stars #8.
