A mutant, Shaw possesses the ability to absorb kinetic energy and transform it into raw strength.

Created by writer Chris Claremont and artist/co-writer John Byrne, the character first appeared in Uncanny X-Men #129 (January 1979).
Comic artist John Byrne based the appearance of Sebastian Shaw on that of British actor Robert Shaw.
