The Shadow King was once a slender crook. He used children, such as Storm, to pick-pocket people. When one day Xavier visited Cairo, Eqypt, Storm stole his wallet. Xavier saw through this and followed her. He met Amahl Farouk and waged a mighty battle on the astral plane. Farouk lost and, as penalty for his defeat, was parted from his body, forcing his mind to forever wander. Years later, a portal opened in a mountain in Africa. He escaped and took control of Storm's spirit son and threatened Storm. He wanted her body. So as to protect her son, Storm let the Shadow King into her. After resisting him, Storm forced him out of her body. He was then tricked by Storm's son, and again imprisoned in the astral plane.
Sometime later, after Xavier had gotten a concussion, the Shadow King took control of him. He tormented the X-Men. However, after time Xavier forced himself and the Shadow King into the astral plane. They did much battle. And the result was Xavier winning. And once more was the Shadow King forever trapped in the astral plane.
Before the Shadow King was expelled from his body, he was a powerful telepath. After he was extracted, his powers were that of immortality, telepathy, and possession. For immortality, the Shadow King can only be harmed by psychic weapons. His power of possession was acquired through his astral form.
