Current: Executive at ELQ Student
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.

Kiki inhales hers, but Michael wants to savor his. Ava gives an impassioned speech about doing anything to protect her sweet girl. Michael tells her keeping Kiki safe is something they have in common, especially after Luke was all over her. Ava demands details. Kiki downplays it but Michael tells Ava how pervy and aggressive Luke was. Kiki worried no one would believe her and when she told Tracy she was furious with her. Michael picks up his mousse and Ava promptly knocks it out of his hand. She refuses to continue with dessert like nothing happened! She will make Luke pay. Julian returns and Ava calls it a night. Michael and Kiki thank her for dinner and she promises Michael two mousses next time. Alone, she tells Julian she granted Michael a reprieve. Luke has been targeting Kiki, and might have raped her if she hadn’t fought him off. Luke thinks with his bits and she’s going to cut them off. She makes a move to call Luke but Julian stops her. He suggests she offer something of equal or greater value – Sonny. Getting the recording with Franco’s help is the only play she has left.
Back at the hospital Michael and Kiki check on Alice and look for a sub-par replacement dessert. Michael thinks today is not his lucky day.
Michael and Kiki wander the hospital discussing wrestling. She announces they are having dinner with her mom. He's not thrilled and reminds her that AJ was shot in her penthouse. He thinks visiting may give him some closure and mentions how much he wishes his father's killer was rotting in the ground.
Ava returns to the penthouse with groceries. Her brother teases her for taking the risk. She's making dinner for Kiki and Michael. He guesses she is going ahead with the boss' plans. Ava assures him she'll be subtle and pulls out a vial of poison. He'll die in his sleep hours later. Only moments later, Michael and Kiki arrive with some sparkling cider. As Ava sadly heads for the kitchen, Michael paces around and feels uncomfortable. He insists on staying. Ava returns in her apron to say she is ordering in but made the dessert herself. Julian takes off, quietly cracking a joke to his sister about 'death by chocolate' on the way. The three sit down to an awkward dinner. Michael assures Ava he will be part of the baby's life, regardless of who the father is. He barely eats, even though the meal consists of his favorites. "It's like you cooked him his last meal," Kiki says. She points out that AJ was shot there. Ava tries to be sympathetic. Once they are all stuffed, Ava brings out chocolate mousse for dessert.
