Brief Bio: Shuma Gorath is an "Old One," an ancient demon that ruled Earth millions of years ago. He demanded blood sacrifices from his followers and feasted on humanity's ancestors until he was finally imprisoned inside a mountain. Like all evil dieties, the tentacled monstrosity didn't like being captured, and eventually Shuma escaped and became one with Dr. Strange's teacher, the Ancient One. Dr. Strange then banished Shuma back to his own dimension, making the Earth safe for a time. Of course, like most all-powerful gods bent on mankind's destruction, Shuma will find a way to break free from his dimensional prison again and will remain a threat until he can be destroyed, but don't hold your breath for that one.
Powers: In his own dimension Shuma Gorath is virtually omnipotent. On the mortal plane he can communicate and control others telepathically, even across dimensions. He can release destructive blasts and manipulate mystical energies on a planetary scale. Shuma can even change shape at will and is nearly indestructible. Yeah, he's one bad demon.
Special Moves: Mystic Stare, Mystic Smash, Devitalization, Chaos Dimension, Hyper Mystic Smash
