Nyuen Chun Ti grew up to believe that the most important thing was to be able to prove his self-worth. As a result, he got into many fights as a child. As an adult, he was genetically modified to be able to work on heavy gravity mining colonies. As a result, his physical attributes were increased. This only elevated his ideology. Shortly after, he went to Minerstown on the Asteroid Archipelago for work. Ti soon confronted the foreman, Wolf Bebach and killed him. Ti took his Atomic Axe, the Persuader for his own as a trophy. He then decided to take the Axe's name and became an assassin for hire. Over the years, Persuader formed a psychic link with the axe and the two couldn't be separated for long.
After 10 years of killing, the Persuader joined the Fatal Five, a group of the Science Police's most wanted criminals. Years later, Brainiac 5 staged a break out at Takron-Galtos and took the Persuader hostage aboard the Legion Battle Cruiser. At an effort to plant a spy among Imperiex' inner circle, Brainiac 5 implanted a digital scan of the Persuader's mind onto Chameleon Boy's. The ruse would have worked but the real Persuader became increasingly agitated and went after the Atomic Axe aboard Imperiex' cruiser.
