Magic: Shuma-Gorath is a lord of chaos, and is an impossibly-old being of malevolence and entropy. As such, it can manipulate mystic energies for a near-omnipotent range of power. The demon can defend itself by dissipating physical energies into mystical might. Shuma-Gorath can also magically manipulate matter on a solar-system scale. It is difficult to attack it physically, with both a rubbery armoured skin as well as the ability to shift to an immaterial state. Its greatest weakness is the fact that once he is defeated in a particular dimension, it is barred from entering that plane for several millennia.
Shuma-Gorath is a god-like demon. The manner in which Shuma-Gorath first came into being is unclear. The Sorcerer Supreme, Doctor Strange, saw it as it ruled the Earth, with prehistoric men and creatures under its command, perhaps a million years ago.
At some point several millennia ago, Shuma-Gorath encountered the time-travelling magic user, Sise-Neg. Sise-Neg battled the entity, forcing Shuma-Gorath to sleep, only to awaken in the 20th Century hungering for the souls walking upon the face of the Earth.
