Radioactively mutated tiger shark possessing psionic powers enabling telepathy to read or control the minds of others, manipulate matter, project powerful energy bolts, fly, change size and mass and generate a personal force field.
Human level intelligence, but still subject to the compulsions of a predator. The Shark not only feeds upon flesh but the psionic energies of other beings.

When an experimental nuclear station on an isolated beach exploded, the radiation that contaminated the nearby shore irradiated a tiger shark; rapidly evolving the beast into a humanoid form with vast psionic powers, human intelligence and an insatiable hunger.
No longer challenged by hunting the creatures of the sea or normal humans the highly evolved predator turned its attentions toward preying upon super humans as the Shark.
