Shaman was among the members of Alpha Flight sent to capture Northstar. While fighting the X-Men, he was able to overpower both Cyclops and Havok.

Whilst at Department H, Shaman was defeated by the enraged and Banshee powered Colossus.

Shaman's activities during and following the Ultimatum event remain unknown.

The Final Incursion

If he was alive at the time, Shaman most likely died when the entire universe came to an end as a consequence of a phenomenon known as an incursion.[2]


Mutagenic Mysticism: Shaman stated that he is not a mystic, but a mutant. So while his abilities seem mystical in origin, they are in fact biological.

So far, he has demonstrated the following abilities;

  • Levitation
  • Force Fields
  • Energy Absorption
  • Superhuman Reflexes
  • Superhuman Strength
  • Superhuman Sense of Smell
