The Shadow King's origin and early life is the same as that of his Earth-TRN620's counterpart.
Powers and Abilities
Telepathy: Shadow King is a telepath of a very high order to the point he has been stated to be a "true Omega Telepath". According to Storm, with the exception of Charles Xavier, Shadow King is the most powerful telepath on Earth and has easily taken over the minds of strong-willed individuals.
- Astral Form: As an astral form he can only be harmed by attacks able to damage such a form, such as psychically or using certain magical weapons. He has demonstrated the ability to live beyond the death of his physical body.
- Anchor Host: Shadow King is able to possess other beings while on the astral plane. Although he can influence many individuals telepathically, he typically chooses one host to occupy with his disembodied spirit. This host body effectively becomes Farouk's own. His powers can somehow physically repair damage to the host. Although taking a host gives him more power on the physical plane, it also makes him vulnerable. Killing the Shadow King's host can disperse his astral essence, and it may take months or even years for him to manifest his astral form again.
Normal human male with little regular exercise when alive. As an astral entity, Shadow King has no physical strength.
