Real Name: Shanzar
Search for 'Shanzar' on Amazon

Being the Sorcerer Supreme of the Strange Matter dimension, Shanzar is a formidable mage, possessing great magical abilities including the creation of mystic bonds, shields, and bolts of force or energy. He can use magic to travel by means of flight, levitation, and teleportation within and across dimensions. The latter is accomplished via ebon dimensional gateways. He can also either conjure demons or bond demons to human hosts. Furthermore given his alien nature, his magical spells are highly resistant to conventional magical spells, as it was quite difficult, if not completely impossible, at times for Dr. Strange, the most powerful mage of Earth's dimension, to affect Shanzar's spells.

Another power of Shanzar is to possess individuals who, in turn, mimic his physical appearance and characteristics, but there are limitations to this ability. For one, due to his naturally great mass he can only successfully possess superhumanly dense characters. Presumably if Shanzar were to attempt to control a regular human's body, it would be squashed from the pressure of Shanzar's dense nature. Another limitation of possession is that Shanzar can only control one personality at a time. As a result, Shanzar must mentally cope with alternate personas of victims who have multiple personalities as well as external mental attacks/manipulation (As when Dr. Strange implanted mental suggestions within Shanzar's mind using the Eye of Agamotto without difficulty while Shanzar possessed the Hulk--who has a quite substantial multiple personality disorder)
