When an atomic pile went out of control at an experimental atomic station, there was an explosion which released radiation and mutated a tiger shark that was swimming close to the shore. Rapidly, the Shark developed humanoid looks, as well as great psionic powers and human-level intelligence.

The Tiger Shark telepathically absorbed knowledge from the minds of humans, thus learning how to speak. But despite his newfound abilities, the Shark retained his instinct to hunt and destroy his prey.

Because of his higher intelligence, he felt his superior hunting skills only worthy to be used on individuals who were extra-ordinarily strong as well, first seeking out Green Lantern, but then other heroes. Despite Green Lantern returning Shark to his natural state, it failed to remained permanent and Shark had been able to take on Aquaman in the guise of an Atlantean named Karshon. He was returned back to his original tiger shark form when Aquaman defeated him.

Crisis on Infinite Earths[]

Following one battle with Hal Jordan, the Shark was blown to atoms by an explosion. Guy Gardner managed to put the Shark back together, and the Shark assisted Gardner.
