History: Shinobi Shaw is the son of billionaire industrialist Sebastian Shaw, who was also the Black King of the Hellfire Club. Ignored by his father in his youth and vowing revenge, Shinobi encountered his father in the latter's Swiss chalet and appeared to have killed him.

Shinobi inherited his father's business and wealth. Shaw was also a member of the Upstarts, a group of young mutants organized by the mutant Gamesmaster who wanted to lead the next generation of would-be conquerors. Shinobi received "points" for killing his father.

Shaw attempted to revive the Hellfire Club's Inner Circle with the X-Men known as Archangel and Psylocke, who refused his offer. Shaw's next contest with the Upstarts involved assassinating the surviving New Mutants and Hellions, and was thwarted by the combined effort of X-Force and the New Warriors.

Shinobi's current whereabouts are unknown. Whether he has discovered that his father, Sebastian, survived the assassination attempt has yet to be revealed.
