After his parents’ murders, young Max Coleridge devoted his life to fighting crime. He learned martial arts in the Far East and joined the mysterious Cult of Kali. The “Kiss of Kali,” a brand marking him as one of the cult’s chosen, blinded Max and gave him supernatural extrasensory perception. Returning stateside, Max became the Shroud, and his latent ability to summon Darkforce awakened. He posed as a super villain and crime boss, using this status to bring down real criminals. He has resumed more traditional super heroics and developed a relationship with part-time government agent Julia Carpenter, also known as Arachne.
