|Bio: One of the more powerful villains the Justice League has
faced, Shadowthief is able to blend into the backgrounds as either a
wall or a shadow. In addition, he’s able to solidify himself at will,
making him incredibly hard to defeat.
Shadowthief followed Shayera Hol and Carter Hall to an ancient
Thanagarian temple in Egypt. After knocking the two out, Shadowthief
played on Hall’s love of Shayera to get him to show where the treasure
in the temple was hidden. Batman interfered and a battle ensued; Shayera
went after Shadow-Thief while Batman and Carter battled mummies that came
alive after Shadow-Thief started a ruckus.
Despite nearly getting away with the goods, Shadowthief’s weakness to
light, was his undoing. After Shayera lit her mace, Kator Hol lit a
torch and Batman lit a flare, Shadowthief was forced to retreat.
Spinning into a tornado-like object, he burrowed through the temple and
outside, bringing the temple down with him.
Shadowthief later got out of the rubble with the Absorbascon. Showing
the destiny of Carter Hall, Shayera Hol and John Stewart, Shadowthief
revealed to them that he, himself, was released from the Absorbascon by
Carter Hall. Shadow Thief was really just an extension of Carter Hall.
His desires to be with Shayera, be a hero and everything were the
essence of Shadowthief. Hall later re-bonded with Shadowthief, ending
his dangerous reign.
