Who is Sebastian Shaw?
Sebastian Shaw is an adversary of the X-Men. He is the leader of the New York branch of the Hellfire Club, an exclusive secret society bent on world domination, although to the public, he is a legitimate businessman and ordinary human. In truth Shaw is a mutant who possesses the ability to absorb kinetic energy and transform it into raw strength.
He was initiated into the Hellfire Club thanks to his vast fortune along with Warren Worthington, Jr. (father of Archangel), Howard Stark (father of Tony Stark) and Sir James Braddock (father of Captain Britain and Psylocke).
