Izumi Yasunari is a Japanese solar physicist who is a longtime member of the Global Guardians. His grandparents were survivors of the atom bomb dropped on Nagasaki, Japan, by the U.S. in 1945, which brought World War II to an end. Both of them later developed cancer and died. The same happened to Yasunari's mother also developed cancer but recovered with chemotherapy. A horrified Yasunari and his brother, Wataru became doctors specializing in cancer research. Their troubled sister, Kaori, joined a religious cult. Rising Sun is a founding member of the Japanese equivalent of the Justice League of America, a team called Big Science Action which came together to defend the hero Ultimon from the Monster Army.
His first known mission was helping Atom dismantle a bomb in Japan. He later helped Robin defeat a villain. Spurred on by Doctor Mist, he helped Superman find a piece of ancient armor and soon after, he and his Guardians assisted Superman in a battles against ancient sorcerers who were casting a spell amid the Moai (Statues) of Easter Island. He helps save Japan in the Crisis on Infinite Earths, and helps Artemis save her parents, Huntress and Sportsmaster with the help of Infinity Inc.. The Japanese hero volunteers to help the Queen Bee but was brainwashed by her forces and technology. Under her influence he destroyed a Neo-Nazi stronghold in Germany, killing many of the people inside. When Justice League members Power Girl and Rocket Red arrive, he attacked them also, believing them to be Nazi loyalists. When defeated, he fell into a coma, all part of a plan.
While in a coma, he was taken care of at the Justice League International embassy in Tokyo, Japan. He awoke at the call of the Queen Bee, at the same time as his friends Wild Huntsman and Tuatara, who were also in comas. These two had also attacked Nazi facilities and had fallen into comas when defeated by Justice League members.
All three returned to duty with the Global Guardians, where they were duly brainwashed. After a few battles with his team, Izumi secretly betrays them and helps fellow Japanese hero Doctor Light battle a horde of Bialyan soldiers. Afterwards, he joins with Doctor Mist, Jack O'Lantern, and Owlwoman together and he helps the three heroes reform the Global Guardians.
Fain Y'onia, an ancient enemy of Doctor Mist, targetted the team. Impala and Godiva were rendered powerless. Bushmaster was killed. The Guardians rallied and ambushed Fain in the Arizona desert. This did not go well. Tuatara was badly injured and Thunderlord was killed. The Wild Huntsman went M.I.A., taking Fain with him. Working with the other Guardians still mobile, and with the assistance of the Martian Manhunter, Rising Sun helped reform the team. He has courted the female Doctor Light, sometimes to the point of angering her.
He next appeared during Infinite Crisis. He and Doctor Light were attempting to protect the people of Tokyo from various natural disasters. Just before the Final Crisis, Rising Sun was interviewed for a retrospective on Big Science Action and their battle with Fushikuraje, an ancient kaiju who had demolished much of Tokyo in an attempt to reach the monster graveyard below Mount Fuji. On the program Rising Sun derided the new younger generation of Japanese heroes, and their obsession with fame, claiming that they dishonored Japan's tradition of superheroing and monster-battling.Since the Final Crisis, Rising Sun has not been well. He gatecrashed a party held by the Super Young Team's, was barred from entering Tokyo by the Japanese SDF, and was apparently possessed by a worm in a bottle of tequila. Since then, he killed the staff of Innovative Concepts, Inc., the the company who markets Super Young Team.
