Though Uncanny X-Men #255-6 is often listed as Matsu'o Tsurayaba's first appearance, a minor ninja in the Kitty and Wolverine miniseries is named Matsu'o.
That Matsu'o is notable for being the only ninja in the service of Ōgun to survive the miniseries.
Was this an early appearance?
If so, the other question this raises is whether Matsu'o was there undercover for the Hand, or was Ōgun's Dojo a Hand training encampment?
If the latter, might this suggest Ogun originally planned to turn Logan into master assassin for The Hand that long ago?
