In the forbidden Land of the Chilling Mist within the nation of Wakanda, lies the powerful Resurrection Altar. The mysterious man known only as Sombre is known as the Oracle of Resurrection Altar. Sombre is a lean, tall figure, always dressed in robes and wearing a tribal mask of vampiric appearance that is said to have been welded to his face. Like Erik Killmonger's other agents, Sombre is said to have gained powers from the Altar. Sombre has an acidic touch that can instantly render even powerful foes instantly unconscious. His other powers aren't completely known, but he commanded a group of white gorillas to attack the Black Panther and his fanged mask was able to stretch its mouth hideously wide, like a cottonmouth snake.
