Present

Shadow first appeared in an introduction to the game Sonic Adventure 2, with a few changes to accommodate the Archie version of Mobius/Earth. The comic skips over the events of the game, and Shadow reappears with an explanation of how he survived his apparent death: An alien race, the Bem, rescued him so he could combat their enemy, the alien Xorda, buying the Bem time to escape. However, Shadow could not defeat the Xorda and plummeted toward Mobius. He survived the fall and was found by Sonic, allowing him to warn the Mobians of the alien threat. Mobius is the planet that the Sonic the Hedgehog characters are from in the comic book series made by Archie Comics (United States) and Fleetway (UK) , and in all three American cartoons, including the light-hearted Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog, the ABC cartoon Sonic the Hedgehog (known as SatAM...

Shadow often works alone to achieve his goal, which is to discover the truth about his mysterious history. He has allied with Sonic to fight greater evils, like the Xorda, and he has been known to work either for or against Dr. Eggman depending on the circumstances (once even threatening to kill him). Often, he will side with whomever he believes will bring him closer to the truth. This search has led him to interact with various other characters, including the robot Isaac, Knuckles' father Locke, and various versions of Metal Sonic. He also has some connection with the being or beings responsible for the creation of Croctobot, the robot created from a fusion of Crocbot and Octobot. In addition to Sonic, he has also established a rivalry with Scourge the Hedgehog. He has also sworn to protect Hope Kintobor at all costs, viewing it as atoning for Maria's death since Hope is one of the few living beings to show compassion towards him besides Maria, and also bears a striking resemblance to her (enough so that he nearly mistook Hope for Maria at one point).

His threats to kill Dr. Eggman were cut short when the villain revealed his blood-connection to the late Maria and hinted he could help uncover Shadow's past. Shadow allied himself with Dr. Eggman in hopes of the doctor making good on his promise. However, he later found himself captured by A.D.A.M., who wished to use him and Tails to collect every Chaos Emerald in the universe by use of his Chaos Control. Upon gaining freedom Shadow helped Tails teleport all the Chaos Emeralds into the Zone of Silence. Shadow later confronted Dr. Eggman and his nephew, Snively, demanding Professor Gerald's diary. It was later mentioned by Tails' parents that the Black Arms had been fighting the Xorda for several months on the Bem homeworld of Argentium, indicating that the comics may do an adaptation of Shadow the Hedgehog. Shadow later stole a disk of Professor Geralds diary, but it was damaged by the droids pursuing him. Sonic saved him from the droids and NICOLE wired into the disk and let Shadow uncover the secrets of his past.

Possible Future

In the second version of the comic's Mobius: 25 Years Later "possible future" storyline, Shadow became King of Mobius and the husband of Sally Acorn. Because of this, Sonic and Sally's children Sonia and Manik, from another possible future, never exist. In this future, Shadow ruled the planet with an iron fist, with a futuristic Knuckles serving as his chief enforcer. In addition, he has an alliance with Lien-Da, Grand Master of the Dark Legion, despite the disapproval of her ancestor Dimitri, who considers her pact with Shadow to be as bad as his own previous alliance with Dr. Finitevus. After King Sonic and Lara-Su (from the original Mobius: 25 Years Later future) return from their excursions to the past, Shadow orderd their imprisonment, along with a number of other enemies such as Rotor and Tails. King Shadow seemed to be aware of the timeline's alteration, as he made efforts against all those who were involved in trying to save the future-except for Knuckles, who apparently found some way to evade his attention. However, his reign came to an end when he was defeated by none other than Lara-Su, who imprisoned him through the power of Chaos Control.
