Michael has been the center of one battle after another since he was born. His mother, Carly, kept his paternity a secret, claiming that it was Jason rather than AJ who fathered her son. Jason stuck to the story to keep AJ from finding out.
Born with a serious heart condition, Michael needed immediate surgery and Jason made the life-saving decision and gave the doctors permission. Jason became a permanent part of Michael's life as the greedy Quartermaine's fought to get access to their newest heir.
When Michael's true paternity was finally revealed, a bitter custody battle ensued between Jason and the Quartermaines. The decision was joint-custody, but Jason feared that his profession would put Michael in harm's way, so he stepped aside.
With Sonny Corinthos marrying Carly, Michael was in jeopardy anyhow. The marriage between his mother and adoptive father was tumultuous, and Michael was always scheming to find ways to get them to reunite.
Michael and his siblings were kidnapped by the evil, Faith Roscoe, but with collective forces, including FBI agent, Reese Marshall, the children who were feared dead were all recovered safely.
When AJ was killed, Michael started having nightmares and imagined that he was the one who killed his biological father. A bout of therapy helped, and it turned out that he had only witnessed the deed.
In his young life, Michael has seen more than his share of violence and hatred. With a mob-boss father, there is always some sort of on-going crisis. Even his maternal grandfather, John Durant, used Michael as a tool to get a conviction against Sonny. Michael is a good older brother, and a loving son to both is parents, as well as Jax, his stepfather.
As his teen years drew near, Michael started to show some signs of wanting to be just like his (mobster!) father. He was caught buying a gun on the waterfront and went on to accidentally shoot his father's fiancee (Kate Howard) with it. She survived and he ultimately came clean about what he had done. Sonny felt responsible for it and tried to turn the page on his business life. He went 'legit' and focused only on his coffee importing business. On the night that he showed Michael his new business, Michael took a bullet in the head that was intended for his father.
Sonny was filled with guilt, but Carly just broke apart. Only after it became clear that their son would never recover from his brain injury did they move him to a long-term care facility in upstate New York.
Michael underwent a controversial operation, which enabled him to wake up from his coma. He had a hard time adjusting to life again and often reacted angrily and violently to situations. When Claudia kidnapped Carly and tried to take off with her baby, Michael swung an axe handle at her head, which killed her.
Carly, Jason and Sonny did their best to protect Michael from the cops and when Sonny was charged with her murder, Michael was sent to the island so he wouldn't confess. However, during Sonny's trial, Dante told the judge Michael was the one who shot Claudia.
Michael was sent to prison where he was menaced by fellow inmate Carter. Jason brokered a deal to be sent to prison so he could protect his nephew. Dante eventually got Michael released early, but not before the damage had been done.
Once free, Michael had trouble fitting in with kids his own age. Sam introduced him to a stripper, Abby, she met while working undercover and despite their age difference, they struck up a close friendship.
Michael saw Abby getting beaten up by her ex-boyfriend and pulled him off her, just as it seemed he was about to rape her. This caused all of his memories of Carter to come flooding to the surface and he eventually confessed to Jason and his mother that he was raped in prison.

Fluke tells Lulu about the party idea. Michael is skeptical. This leads to bickering. Morgan thinks his brother is being immature and walks out. Lulu goes after him. Fluke assures the men that no one will forget this party.
At General Hospital, Michael meets with Lucas to discuss the clinic. He wants Lucas’ input and suggests they go down to the waterfront so he can show him the current plans. Elsewhere, Patrick talks with Liz about Jake’s latest incident and his memory issues. Patrick starts to wonder if Sam is right and Jake is the man who took her hostage. Liz defends Jake, saying there is no evidence connecting him to Faison’s escape. Liz says if he can’t be objective then she can get another doctor for Jake, but Patrick says that’s not necessary. In Jake’s room, Carly is stunned to find a gun with a missing serial number in Jake’s duffle bag along with a black suit and mask. She says they look a lot like what the gunman who took Sam hostage wore. Jake has no explanation for them and struggles to believe he could be guilty. Jake begs Carly not to tell anyone about this. Liz and Patrick walk in to check on Jake. Carly keeps quiet and takes Jake’s bag as she leaves, saying she’ll keep it safe for him. In the hallway Michael is leaving with Lucas and runs right into Carly. Carly is filled in on Lucas’ role in Michael’s new project. She’s happy for them both. Michael excuses himself and tells Lucas he’ll wait outside for him. Lucas tells Carly not to give up on Michael. She says she won’t. Carly returns to Jake’s room where Jake thanks Carly for not ratting him out. Carly suggests they find out the truth about what happen by going back to see Kevin Collins.
Lucas and Michael arrive at the docks. Michael gets a call from Luke, who asks Michael to bring Lucas and meet him at the haunted star to discuss the clinic. As Michael is on the phone, Lucas happens to find Sam’s phoenix on the ground.
