Explanation of the conversion:

History: All that has been revealed about Mako's early history is that he was mauled by a shark at ground zero during a series of nuclear bomb tests, which transformed him into a half-man half-shark creature. Eventually, he joined the Vicious Circle, the most notorious and powerful criminal organization in Chicago. While on a Vicious Circle mission, Mako and other agents were attacked by legendary super-hero SuperPatriot, who Mako then seriously mauled and crippled.

Weeks later, at the behest of their leader, Overlord, Mako and other Vicious Circle members entered a supermarket and took several hostages in order to coerce the famed superhuman police officer Dragon into surrendering. After a brief battle with Dragon, and a re-built cybernetic SuperPatriot, Mako was taken into Police custody.

Freak Force #2 Mako and several other Vicious Circle members escaped from prison a few months later. He was recruited by the Covenant of the Sword, a highly-secretive worldwide underground organization to kill SuperPatriot. Mako was defeated by SuperPatriot and returned to police custody (Freak Force #2).

Many months later, Mako was found working jointly for the Vicious Circle and General Sucarno LaSalle, and committed a few missions for the latter. Eventually, however, he was defeated by Star and left to die in a gigantic warehouse explosion. However, right before he perished, he was accidentally teleported to a Detroit bank by an experimental multi-million dollar Mandelbrodt toaster wielded by the unwitting Marcia Brady, who purchased it at a pawn shop. Mako and the various other assembled super-villains, most of whom had their skin and costume colors change during the transportation, battled the Deadly Duo and Grunge of Gen13 before being once again teleported off of the scene.

He was next seen his normal skin-color returned and he was battling several Chicago Police Officers on a rainy night, whilst in a particularly bitter mood. After eating and mauling several of the officers, he was almost able to achieve his goal of killing Dragon, before he was captured by other Chicago-based superhumans. Mako was once again sent to prison, while trying to escape amidst a massive jailbreak, he was electrocuted.

Soon afterwards, he was seen once again working for the Vicious Circle, battling the bizarre Doctor Brainerd and his 'Anomalous' superhuman students, seen as a threat by new Vicious Circle leader Cyberface to his underworld supremacy. After Dragon interrupted the battle, Mako and his cohorts escaped.

Soon afterwards, Mako was captured for scientific examination by businessman Warlord Kmodo aka Dragonlord, but escaped, doing battle with Kmodo himself, several large lizards, Splinter, and Donatello of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles along the way.

Freak Force II #2 He was then recruited by Dr. Chelsea Nirvana as a member of her new team, Frightening Force, in order to defeat the costumed superhuman team Freak Force. He was defeated by the super-strong Joey Finkleberry, and yet again returned to Police custody (Freak Force II #1-3).

In the post-apocalyptic city of San Futuro several decades into the future, Mako is depicted as having been brutally murdered in the city of San Futuro by the semi-superhuman Sorry The Nearly Man. However, this future will not necessarily come to pass.

Powers: Being half-shark, Mako's teeth can easily bite through very strong substances. If they break, they can in fact grow back at a fast rate. His skin provides relatively strong body armor against physical injury, and can barely be penetrated by metal blades. Mako also possesses superhuman strength of a relatively high degree, and can presumably see clearly underwater. He also possesses amphibious traits, such as the ability to deftly swim underwater, as well as breath under water. Mako apparently suffers through serious cravings to consume human blood, which may in fact be part of a nescessary diet that enables him to survive.
