Shadow Thief (DC)
Real Name: Carl Sands
Search for 'Shadow Thief (DC)' on Amazon


Bio:
While growing up in Japan, American Carl Sands learned ninjutsu techniques and became a rather undistinguished industrial saboteur, accepting unremarkable sums to hinder and eliminate his clients' rivals. The Thanagarian criminal Byth then hired Sands to steal Hawkman and Hawkwoman's ship. To help Sands with this job, Byth gave him a Dimensiometer - a Thanagarian belt device/"shadow vest", which gave Sands the ability to shift his body into a shadow form. (His pre-Crisis history is still canon, including his brief membership in the Injustice Gang, and fought the Golden Age Hawks instead.)

Hawkman eventually defeated him, but Shadow-Thief would come into conflict with him many times after that. He would later become a member of the Injustice Gang which came into conflict with Hawkman and his allies, the Justice League of America. He lost the belt to the Phantom Stranger, but he gained a shadow suit. He eventually sold his soul to Neron for more power. Neron gave him a more powerful shadow suit with the ability to turn other people and objects into shadows.

Recently, the Shadow-Thief has entered into the employ of St. Roch art trader Kristopher Roderic. Sands has been sent to the ends of the earth in service of Roderic's dark aims, and is hopeful that the unscrupulous collector will help him with a problem of his own.

During the events of Identity Crisis, Shadow-Thief became deranged and began having delusional conversations with the Dimensiometer. He ended up apparently killing Firestorm with Shining Knight's mystically enhanced sword. For killing Firestorm, he was prosecuted by Kate Spencer (a.k.a. Manhunter IX).

Shadow-Thief later popped up as a member of the Injustice League, and is one of the villains featured in Salvation Run
