All of the Shade's powers derive from his unique weapon, which is of unknown origin. Among the many FEATs which are possible with his cane are the following:
The Shade can create a cloud of darkness (limited to ten areas in size) with Excellent ability. The cloud will absorb light and heat of less than Excellent intensity. He wears special contact lenses to see within the cloud.

The Shade can modify the size, shape, and intensity of existing shadows, and even solidify them into 2-dimensional objects which can inflict up Excellent damage.

The ebony cane can open a round doorway, about 4 feet across, which can be used for travel between Earth and the Dark Zone. Anything can be transported via this doorway, assuming it can physically fit through the door. The doorway will work no matter which Earth the Shade is on; however, it cannot function as travel between Earths, as the Shade will end up back on whichever Earth he left from.

The cane allows the Shade to communicate telepathically, but only with the denizens of the Dark Zone. They will obey his commands absolutely.

The Shade can generate a solid shadow around a single area, and harden it to the point where it can withstand up to Remarkable damage from physical, heat, and light-based attacks.

The Injustice Society of the World
At noon on a day in 1942, total darkness fell over Keystone City; not even electrical lights worked. The criminal mastermind known only as the Shade had created the darkness with his machine that prevented sunlight and other light from being reflected. Instead, all light except that produced by the special devices the Shade's gang possessed was absorbed by matter, leaving none for people to see by.

Under the cover of this darkness, the Shade and his gang captured the Keystone City's police force and looted the city's banks. However, the original Flash succeeded in restoring light to the city. Soon afterward, the Shade attempted to blanket in darkness the house in which a young woman was making her society debut and then rob the people inside. The Flash foiled this scheme and captured the Shade.

Many years later, the original Flash came out of retirement to battle the criminal alliance of the Shade, the Fiddler, and the Thinker. The original Flash was joined in fighting these three criminals by the second Flash, and together the two Flashes defeated all three of them.

Later, the Shade learned how to create vibrations with his cane that enabled him to enter a dimension of darkness he called the Dark Zone and to command the living creatures within it. The Shade then sent some of these creatures to Earth to rob for him. He captured the original Flash, but the second Flash defeated the Shade and freed his predecessor.

Since then the Shade has served as a member of the Injustice Society of the World, and temporarily allied himself with the second Flash against the Rainbow Raider. The Shade is still at large.
