Amatsu-Mikaboshi was worshiped as the Japanese God of evil. Legend states that Amatsu-Mikaboshi acquired Kusanagi, the mystical Grasscutter Sword. The storm God Susanoo claims to have found the Grasscutter Sword within the body of the eight-headed dragon Yamato-no-Orichi, after it was gifted to his sister Amaterasu, the magical sword served several heroes over time, finally resting for centuries in a heavily guarded temple for safe keeping before the Asgardian gods Thor,Fandral,Hogun and Volstagg freed it. The Asguardian's failed to safeguard it, and it eventually ended up on Earth where the Hand sought it but were stopped by Black Axe,Sunfire,Daredevil and others while Mikaboshi claimed the sword.
