Shadow Form:The mutant ability to become a living shadow, granting him enhanced strength and speed.
When Dallas' powers manifested, his grandfather had a heart attack and he was later recrutied to the institute. Dallas Gibson was once an advisee of Emma Frost, co-headmaster at the Xavier Institute, and thus had made acquaintances of the students who would be assigned to the Hellions. However, with the invention of the training squad system, he was assigned a new advisor, Cyclops, and placed in a different training squad, the Corsairs, which includes the three surviving Stepford Cuckoos, Quill, and Dryad. Specter is now one of the thousands of mutants who lost his powers as a result of the M-Day.
Specter was originally going to be put on the Hellions squad, but was replaced by Dust when the New X-Men series started up. He was then put on the Corsairs instead.
A boy with short blond hair much like Dallas's was seen on the bus that was blown up by William Stryker and his followers. However, he has been stated to be alive during interviews with Chris Yost.
