Shadow Master grew up Samuel James Reidtz in Crank Town, Mississippi.  He grew up in a rough neighborhood where the only sollice was away from home.  His father was a drunk and would constantly beat him and his mother.  Other than that he would be beaten up and picked on because of his size by the other kids at school and on the street.  He would instigate most of it.  Eventually him and his mother moved to Silver CIty and settled down.  Sam still caused trouble and was sent to counciling and eventually a juvenile detention center where he spent two years in icarceration. This is where he found out about his powers to control shadows.  For the his entire sentence in juvy Sam kept his powers under wraps and only told the officer in charge, whom he trusted to kept his secret.  After these two years Sam calmed down and went back to school.  He focused on his classes and eventually had the chance to go to college.  Instead of going to college he joined the military where he thought he could do better.

While in the military Sam told his superiors about his powers.  At first they laughed at him but when he showed them they were dumbfounded.  He was ordered not to use his powers.  While in the military at age 23 Sam ranked up to Lieutenant and eventually met Sarge, a former soldier and his future team founder.  Sam eventually made friends and joined a group called War Hounds.  While there he was known to his teammates and superiors as "Shadow Dog", a name he hated at first but grew accustomed to.
