Ayira and his brother are both sons of the great king Black Panther, and the very beautiful Storm. Out of the two he is the little brother. He always looked up to him like he was his mentor, and the day came when it was time to decide who was going to become the true prince of Wakanda. They spent the rest of the week training, and told each other that whatever happens they will always be the best of brothers.
Finally the day of the tournament came and it was time for Ayira to face Bolade. It was told that there was to be no using powers, and if they did use their powers they would be banished from Wakanda forever. As the fight went on the two brothers fought each other with a strong will. The battle was soon coming to an end when Bolade hit Ayira onto his back and it looked like he was going to win, but suddenly Ayira used his unknown lightning powers. The crowd stood in silence for they did not know of his powers. Sadly he was still banished, even though the king did not allow it. For the Panther god told him to go, and never return. Before leaving Wakanda, Black Panther told him to take his MK II Heavenly Armor for battle in the wild. As his mother watched him go into she asked the Panther God to watch over him.
Feeling he had to do this Bolade went on with his brother to find their destiny. The two brothers soon found themselves alone able for Bolade to teach Ayira how to control his powers. Ayira was a fast learner which almost made Bolade jealous of him. They soon found themselves among others with gifts of their own that call themselves the Meta-Mutants. They went around the world and found other mutants, soon Ayira thought it was time for them to move on. But the leader, William Stryker, convinced Bolade to stay. The brothers had a huge fight which ended up in battle again, only this time they would never forgive each other again.
Soon Ayira made it to America, where he met Ethan Fury and he helped him in his own company call Wakanda Inc. It was a business that gives Americans Wakandan weapons and in return they will make them the 51st state in America. He soon remembers the armor that his father gave to him and become a superhero known as the Coal Tiger.
