The family of the mutant that would become Black Shadow/White Shadow was killed by one of shadow's early manifestations. Twenty years later it appeared while the mutant was being examined by his doctor. The doctor was killed by the Black Shadow. The local villagers feared the mutant and attacked him. The mutant resisted letting the Black Shadow out and was rendered unconscious. He hoped the villagers would kill him. Instead he was taken to an asylum and left there. Over time the mutant became hideously obese, and whatever staff and clients had lived at the asylum all passed away.
The Black Shadow vaporised an entire city block in Hong Kong. Mrs. Linn Chow, a friend of Wolverines, was killed. As Wolverine was investigating Linn's death, the Black Shadow appeared and attacked.
