Various mental powers
Years ago, the radiation of an atomic pile transformed a tiger shark into a humanoid shark creature with vast mental powers. The powerful but bloodthirsty being became a threat to humanity, battling Green Lantern Hal Jordan, Superman, the JLA, and others over the years. In disguise of an Atlantean called Karshon, he usurped the throne of Poseidonis before being defeated by Aquaman. During the so-called Crisis, Guy Gardner recruited the Shark and other villains to fight the armies of Qward. However, the Shark soon returned to his villainous ways, fighting Jordan, Black Condor (II), and Aquaman again. When last seen, the Shark had once again devolved into a normal tiger shark, due to the telepathic powers of Aquaman.
