Like his brother, Shen has a star for a brain. Shen's star manifested as a black hole. He lost them during M-Day.
Miniature Black Hole (Formerly): The black hole in Xorn's head allowed him to emit the same energies a black hole does. Most notably he gave off gravity. Shen's black hole was capable of sucking up instantly another being. Xorn was capable of reversing his black holes natural state. That is, Shen could cause his star to flare up into a sun.
◾Gravitational Electromagnetism (Formerly): could feel the movement of energy and emotion on many scales. He possessed gravitational senses that allowed him to manipulate energy for a variety of purposes, including warping of gravity fields, sensing when a death had occurred in his vicinity, shaking gravitational particles in the air around him which allowed him to speak other languages, and to heal others.
◾Self-Sustenance (Formerly): Given the nature of his mutant abilities, Shen Xorn did not need to breathe, nor did he require food or water to survive.
◾Telepathy (Formerly): Ability to read minds.
The X-Men found a mutant similar to Kuan-Yin Xorn. While quarantined he was examined by Emma Frost. He explained that he was Kuan-Yin's twin and his brain formed a black hole rather than a star. He claimed his brother had been affected by an outside influence, later revealed to be Sublime, that caused his madness and posing as Magneto.
While the X-Men faced the Brotherhood, Xorn removed his helmet to draw them into the black hole, including Juggernaut and Nocturne. Afterwards, he wanted some time to meditate on the subject instead of joining the team like his late brother. The black hole inside of Shen Xorn's head led to the Mojoworld where the Brotherhood members gave Juggernaut and Nocturne to Mojo for their freedom. Juggernaut and Nocturne later found a way to escape Mojo.
Shen lost his powers during M-Day.
