The Silver Samurai armor was made out of adamantium on the orders of Ichirō Yashida, in an effort to prolong his life, until he could gain Logan's healing factor. When Wolverine was captured by Harada, the Samurai began to cut off Logan's claws, but he was freed by Mariko Yashida. A fight ensued, during which Harada was slain by the Samurai when he tried to redeem himself by helping Wolverine.
While Wolverine managed to use one of the swords to cut off the armoured head, he encountered Yashida himself. As Logan hanged for life, Yashida began to drill into both of Logan's adamantium implants. As Yashida began to grow younger, Wolverine nearly had the life drained out of him before being saved by Mariko. As the armor started to power down, Wolverine used his natural claws to lift the armor, throwing it down a cliff, destroying the armor and killing Yashida.
