HistoryEdit

Kent Allard was a pilot during the first World War, and after faking his death near the end of the war, he trained with the mysterious beings called The Teachers in the hidden city of Shamba-La. While living with these beings, Allard learned various powers and abilities, such as how to "cloud men's minds". However, there was a price to learning such powers: until he was to find a suitable replacement to continue his mission of justice, he was to essentially become immortal. Beginning in the 1930s, Allard adopted the alias of Lamont Cranston and became The Shadow, a vigilante operating in New York City with a complex network of agents, such as Margo Lane and Harry Vincent.
