Chaos Control

Super Shadow is a transformation that appears in the Sonic the Hedgehog comic series and its spin-offs published by Archie Comics. It is the Super-State of Shadow the Hedgehog, achieved by absorbing the power of seven Chaos Emeralds.


Shadow first reached this transformation when he allied himself with Super Shadow to stop the Biolizard from destroying Sonic's World with the Space Colony ARK, an act which caused him to almost perish after using all his energy and falling toward the atmosphere.[1] He later transformed again to do battle with Devil Doom. Super Shadow was able to destroy Devil Doom, ending the Black Arms invasion of Sonic's World.[2][3]

The Last time Shadow used this form was during an aborted timeline where Solaris attempted to destroy time. He stopped the demigod with Super Sonic and Super Silver. These events were, however, erased from the timeline.[4]

Powers and abilities

While in his Super-State, all of Shadow's innate talents are multiplied many times over, giving him increased speed, strength and reflexes. Like the traditional Super-State, Shadow gains new abilities too, including high-speed flight and virtual invulnerability to harm.
