Ahura was the son of Black Bolt and Medusa of the Inhumans. He was conceived without permission of the Genetics Council, and born on Earth in defiance of this Council. His birth cry demonstrated his father's devastating power, but this evolved into a psionic "evil eye" power that could cause death. His powers were relatively dormant.
He was taken by the Council and sent to earth, but his spacecraft crashed and he was taken in by a childless couple and named "Pope". He grew unnaturally quickly and it was in this period that his "evil eye" power replaced his vocal powers. After his rescue by Gorgon and Karnak, he was taken by the Genetic Council for the leader's own purposes. With the help of his family, Ahura was able to overcome the corrupt Chief Justice who had been stealing his power.
Ahura was locked away for years because he was afflicted with the same madness as his uncle, Maximus. As his powers grew, so did his insanity. The Genetic Council of Attilan deemed him too dangerous and he was taken to the Pacifiers to suppress his powers. They were unable to treat his mental illness. Black Bolt forbid Medusa to see him, however she visited him twice. The first time, Ahura chastised her for allowing this to happen to him. On Medusa's second visit, it was discovered that years with the Pacifiers had taken away Ahura's anger and violence, but left him in an oversedated state. Medusa asked permission of Black Bolt to use their niece, Luna, to attempt to heal his mind, but Black Bolt flatly refused.
He was later captured along with Black Bolt by the Skrulls, but escaped unharmed with help from the rest of the Inhumans
