Bio:

Nobody seems to know anything about the mysterious “Shadow Man.” Even that name, “Shadow Man,” was a name given to him by the underworld and he merely adopted it. He’s an independent psychopath who comes and goes as he pleases, his passage only noted by the body count he leaves in his wake. Occasionally at the scenes of his victims, a small magical circle drawn in the victim’s blood can be found. The purpose of these circles is unknown.

Rumor has it that Iron Mike has managed to find a way to somehow appeal to him and acquire his services.

NEW INFORMATION:

As a result of Hazel’s Crazy Search Algorithm the following information has come to light:

At this level, the Shadowman can be confirmed to have been working with or for Iron Mike, and the Tomorrow Legion is mentioned as the reason why he hasn’t been terrorizing the Ironworkers or Brisby Flats anymore. Other super-humans associated with Iron Mike are mentioned too, in the same rumor-ish way. They are: Amaya, Blaspheme, Conflagration, Maximal, Momentum and Overhaul.

Any questions or follow-ups, let me know.

Declassified S.H.A.R.D. data:

The Shadow-Man exerts a large measure of control over, and affinity toward, shadows. He can create, animate, control, strengthen, and draw power from them. He has also demonstrated the ability to teleport short distances using shadows as a gateway.
