Eric the Red (02 - Davan Shakari)
Real Name: Davan Shakari
Search for 'Eric the Red (02 - Davan Shakari)' on Amazon

Davan Shakari has the normal superhuman advantages of a member of his species. This entails enhanced strength, enhanced agility, and hollow bones.

In addition to this he wore a costume that augmented his strength to higher superhuman levels, enabled him to control minds to a limited degree, and fire concussive force blasts from his hands. It had various other advantages and was comprised of alien technology several centuries more advanced than that found on Earth.

The second Erik the Red did not appear until years later; Cyclops wondered what the connection was between this Erik and the identity he himself had used, but the answer was never given. Presumably, Davan Shakari based his identity on the one that Cyclops had used years before in a strategy to bewilder the X-Men and catch them off guard.

Davan Shakari was appointed the observer of planet Earth, its people, and its cultures, for the Shi'ar Empire. During the Phoenix Saga storyline, he worked under the evil Shi'ar ruler, D'Ken, and was known to be quite corrupt himself. He subsequently restored adulthood to Magneto, who had been de-aged to infancy by Alpha the Ultimate Mutant, using advanced Shi'ar technology. Erik would not appear again for years; when he did, he apparently died when his starship exploded during a battle with Genis-Vell and X-Treme.
